This was a great place to stay, awesome owners, great layout, awesome atmosphere. Just about my only 'problem' was the showers didn't get very hot and Sao Paulo was pretty cold while we were there. A minor inconvenience.
English speaking staff were almost non-existent at the hostel. The top bunk of our bed was also broken and had to be slept on the floor. My guess is had trouble dealing with the surplus world cup traffic.
Amazingly good bargin for what we got. The free transport between the ferry was great and the place is spotless. The showers however in the room could be better.
Great hostel with awesome staff. Only complaints would be that there be a larger hot water heater (tends to run out quickly when everybody's showering) and that the kitchen rules be posted so that it's clear what is and isn't allowed.
Despite the somewhat rundown exterior and street the hostel was absolutely amazing. The two cats now are a blast to watch play and the staff there is a ton of help and fun. Great scene, one of the best hostels I've stayed at!
Great fun - amazing staff....only wish the grill was open every day. A bit of a walk from the train station though
