Property Description

Hostel Alice is an hidden oasis in São Paulo. It’s as if you were “at your grandma’s house” (psst...we have N64 Mario Kart). Two cozy houses with a nice backyard and a familiar and quiet vibe. You can meet here a real family - The Alice Family. We love traveling and people - but the most important thing is we're gonna love meeting you!

Our hostel is strategically located (subway station Vila Madalena is 4 min. by walk) in one of the best, most incredible and safe neighborhoods of São Paulo: Vila Madalena. You're gonna find culture every corner you turn: bars, clubs, restaurants and galleries.

Even though Hostel Alice has a quiet vibe, we love beers, caipirinha and going out in one of the various bars all within walking distance (ask us and we show you around). It is the ideal place for those seeking for a quiet place to stay and, at the same time, want to have easy access to the rich night life of the city of São Paulo.

In one of our houses we have also our vegan bakery PADOCA VEGAN which is known for its delicious vegan breads, snacks and sweets. There we offer breakfast to our guests for a cheap price in Vila Madalena. You can also use our well equipped kitchen to prepare your breakfast and cook whatever you want. View House Rules

    My stay at Hostel Alice was great. The Hostel is beautiful and in a great Area. Having a vegan bakery in the same building made it even better and I can highly recommend getting the breakfast!:)

    Stayed here for 1 night as a first stop after our long flight to Brazil. Perfect just to sleep in comfortable beds and the clean bathrooms. Was quiet at night. The nextdoor bakery is incredible !! And the staff were very helpful. Great location. Would stay again :)

    Really good location and rooms, but I was surprised to know they don't have any list or map to recommend a good bar/restaurant nearby! The staff was nice but wasn't very helpful to guide us to a cheap place to eat. We found lunch for 17$ But had to spend a lot of time walking around cause no employee knew a nice place. Also the breakfast could be better for the value. Just go to Dia supermarket and get your own food for the morning.

    We stayed for 5 days here and while it was comfortable and clean we did find that a lot of guests were not very good with hostel etiquette. In fairness to the staff when one particular guest was being inconsiderate (having shouting conversations on loudspeaker on his phone) they did step in and ask him to stop once we informed them. We only got breakfast here once as it wasn’t very tasty and not great value for money. Good location, nice area and comfortable dorms.

    Good location in safe area. Stayed in clean & comfoprivate room at the back of the hostel. Water in the private bathroom was off while we were there, although it’s a recurring problem and the manager knows how to fix it but not sure the message got to him during our short stay and we were out all day. But there was bathroom just outside. A little noisy at night as could hear people in kitchen/garden from our room at night, or cafe prepping in morning - but wasn’t too loud. Would stay again.

    A little bit disappointed by the overall atmosphere, when we went to talk outside at night we got yelled at by a neighbor, we had to be really careful with the noise. So not the best place to meet new people. The rooms were a little bit small for the amount of people in it. Other than that, The personnel was really nice and helpful. Location is good next to bars and restaurants.
