    Hostel California is LGBTQ friendly! It's a beautiful and colorful house in my favorite area of São Paulo. It isn't spacious but it's cozy and I liked how they've tastefully converted the space into a hostel. There are lockers in the room to store valuables but you won't be able to fit your luggage. It's a 15 minute walk to Beco do Batman and there's lots of stuff to eat and drink nearby. When I checked in I was told I'd need to go to their partner property across the street but I asked to stay.

    Really friendly staff, good security, big lockers in rooms, kitchen was equipped with everything, breakfast was pretty good, some restaurants and grocery stores nearby which was useful, pretty clean although the bathrooms were a bit dirty after a day because there were only three for the whole hostel, not much to actually do close by but you can Uber everywhere, WiFi was quite poor.

    I stayed there during the pandemic, so it wasn't the 'normal' atmosphere a hostel would have. But I have nothing to complain about; I felt very comfortably and would stay in this hostel again.

    We booked two Mixed Dorm Beds, however they thought we are two females travelling and put us in the female room. My boyfriend and me need to seperate for the whole stay, cause they told us there is only one more bed in the mixed dorm available. During all week the bed next of my boyfriend was empty. On top of that there was always the staff sleeping in the same dorms like the guests. The staff working at night sleeps all day, the close the Windows and put off lights. No real common area to relax
