Great little hostel in the best possible location in SP. Lucas was a champion during his late night shift and called an Uber for me because my app wasn't working in Brasil. 11/10

Very cool hostel, on a street full of bars it has a great location. We arrived on a friday night and find that the area was already packed and lively with people out for drinks! The hostel has a really cool aesthetic, comfy beds, nice out door area. Breakfast was very basic but the hostel is at the back of a bar that does good caiprinhas and food, its quite a trendy hipster neighbourhood and we enjoyed! There's forro in the square around the corner on sundays too, would 100% return to Garoa!

Great hostel, secure and safe but a couple of things let it down. Breakfast was never on time as was meant to start at 7 every morning but didn’t and some of the staff were quite miserable on the front desk and unhelpful. Otherwise great location, good facilities and kept clean! Would definitely reccomend! 👌🏻👌🏻

There's a bar attached, open to the public - cool in a social sense, but bad for security (the pass-coded door to hostel rooms was usually open or unlocked). Staff were ok, but not very attentive. Many of them live in the hostel and frequently take over the common areas - so the actual guests were often excluded. Location is excellent on a colorful and lively street full of interesting bars and interesting people (younger hipster crowd) in a cool area (close to metro too). Would stay again.

Great hostel, friendly staff, and amazing location. I really enjoyed staying here. Beautiful atmosphere and lovely courtyard. The caipirinhas are well made, too! The hostel is located in walking distance to many nice cafes and shops, as well as good access to the metro. That made journeying to the city center much easier. The staff had great recommendations for me for nearby spots to get some espresso and baked goods.
