This hostel's primary function is as a bar- it felt like we were sleeping in the bar itself Thursday-Sunday. The rooms smelled like sewer at night. While most of the staff was wonderful, one was quite rude. The hostel primarily caters to Brazilians living in Sao Paolo rather than tourists, so there was no vibe or sense of travelers' community. The staff didn't really have suggestions for fun things to do in the city other than the free walking tour.

Very sparse breakfast. Really cool street with buzzing nightlife. Toilets were ok. Shower was ok. Friendly and helpful staff.

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

Stayed here for a couple of nights and the place in general is nice and clean. The location is fantastic! Only few downsides was that the kitchen facilities are poor and that the security and staffing there were issues. One member of staff who was meant to be on reception was just chilling in the bar with his mates drinking whilst he had 3 customers waiting, not on really.

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.
