Would def stay here again. Great area, very safe. Staff are all helpful. Clean. Has a real warm home vibe to it. And internet is ridicously fast...thats a good fast. Just note when you come out of the train station turn left in the first street and then walk down that, its not clearly instructed and i kept walking straight for 20 minutes


Best hostel experience ever!!! Love you guys!

Brilliant hostel, couldn't fault it in anyway. Loved the way the staff gave a good map of things to see.


I liked the single person bathrooms, the hairdryer outside was very convenient too. I disliked the bedding, the pillow I had was very lumpy, I think it is time for new ones. We were close to a lot of good food, and the staff were very helpful.


The kitchen was very small and it was difficult to cook with so many people around. But it was a good location and a reasonable price. They don't accept card which wasn't clear when we booked.


Great place to stay, plenty of room which you don't normally get in hostels, great location. The staff are really really awesome, and everyone who was there for the few weeks i was was awesome, so many new friends. A couple of things could be improved (it is a hostel after all) but the staff and owner were happy to take it on board and are constantly improving the place. The map they have for you is better than any hostel i've been at before, and if you want to party the staff are a great help.


Very helpful staff, nice cosy TV room. We would of liked for the staff to let us use their lockers once we checked out of the hostel. The staff were very helpful otherwise, however the fridge policy should be more relaxed as we didn't have time to get our food before it was chucked out. Overall great hostel, in a good location.


We really enjoyed our stay here! Staff excelled, very helpful especially Alan ;) Thanks for our stay


A very nice hostel, we stayed there for three days/ two nights. The staff is friendly and gives you tips what to explore in the city - which is good, because Sao Paulo is not very touristic. There are several restrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen where you can cook your dinner, a living room and a nice outside area. Yes, you need to walk 20min to the metro station - but it's worth it, because the area is secure and you can go out on foot to enjoy the nightlife locations which are close / 10min walk
