This is a lovely hostel, the staff despite not being able to speak English were really accommodating and helpful. The location was good and close to the metro. The breakfast was outstanding - really healthy and different to the usual bread and jam. We were quite surprised that you are not allowed to use the kitchen or cook any meat. We couldn't afford to eat out every night so this did limit us somewhat. Overall a really clean and tranquil place.
My stay at Zen Hostel was just great! I recommend to all to stay there. The place is beautiful, very clean and with frienly staff. Is in a great neighbourhood and next to the metro station. One thing is that you cannot cook there, but you still can use the fridge and microwave. And if you expect party at the hostel, Zen Hostel as the name says...is very calm. But when I'm in São Paulo again, I know where to stay, always from now on.
Its a great hostel located near Vila Madalela subway station! Beautiful and clean, perfect both for zen people and agitated people!
Very good location - right next to Vila Madelena metro and 5 min walk to great bars etc. Hostel itself and rooms are excellent - more like a boutique hotel than a hostel so excellent value for money. The couple who run the hostel are extremely welcoming and helpful. If you're looking to go to Sao Paulo and are not looking for a 'party' hostel, this place is highly recommended.
The hostel is brand new so they are still trying to figure some things out and learning how to run it. It's run by a Brazilian couple who are amazingly sweet and really do the best they can but their English isn't thr best (but you can communicate). Location in Vila Madalena is also great, and they did really well with the decorating.
Zen Hostel was the best thing ever it could happen to me in Sao Paolo. Sumara and Paulo, the owners, do everything possible to make your stay as great as possible. It was like home and they made me feel really good. I would recommend it million times and I hope I can go back there again.
