    The staff were fantastic - super helpful and friendly! The hostel is big enough to feel like there is space for everyone and a social vibe but at the same time, the hostel isn't too "party" or loud. Great location - the area feels totally safe and there are loads of bars/restaurants and tourist attractions nearby. The bar was well-priced with lethal caipirinhas and the breakfast was decent. We'd definitely recommend to others visiting São Paulo!

    I have stayed here 5 times and keep coming back for the atmosphere and the staff. Very nice place to chill in a good area, easily accessible to where u want to be in sp. Can get a bit hot in the night but this has only been an issue a few nights over the multiple stays.

    A really nice place in a really nice neighborhood. A metro station is really close by. Staff members are really helpful and nice. Breakfast cost 12 rs and I think is worth it. Nice coffee too.

    The location could not have been better. Close to the metro line and a short walk to Beco do Batman and bars in Villa Madalena. I felt very safe walking around on my own in the area. The beds were really comfy! Staff is very accommodating and sweet. I would definitely stay there again!

    The owner, Luis, is very considerate with warm and worldly personality, whose motto, in my experience, seems like 'ask and you will get'. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Location is perfect. I couldn't find a better place than Cafe Hostel to end my Brazil trip! it was home away from home! Thanks Luis and everyone at Cafe Hostel.

    My stay at the hostel was excellent. The staff was nice and informative (they helped me out to understand the subway system perfectly and were always to help). The breakfast is really good and a good value for money. The hostel was very clean and tidy all the time, just like the rooms. My only minor grip is the number of toilets, may be few if the number of occupation is high. Overall, it was an excellent stay, and I don't have any kind of complaints about the hostel. I totally recommend it.

    Quiet neighborhood, about a 10 min walk to the nightlife in Vila Madalena. Just a few blocks from houses and metro, convenient to get to. Bc they have a bar (limited selection) no outside alcohol which was a bit annoying. Great staff, very friendly and helpful

    Nice, well located hostel in a safe area close to bars and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. Large lockers in dorms were useful, although our dorm did not lock. Also, showers were a bit of an awkward set up. Would definitely come back though, good hostel all round.
