Property Description

The MADÁ hostel is one of those places you like already at the entrance.

A beautiful and airy house with a very familiar climate. On the ground floor is our common area: garden, a nice room, space for snacks, shared kitchen. If you're lucky, you'll be able to eat a toasted bun or freshly baked cake.

We have 28 beds in six rooms. There are two suites, two private rooms with shared bathroom and three collective (two with 6 - mixed and female - and the other with 8 beds).

Our tip is that you spend a little of your time to stay on the porch.

The charming townhouse right in the middle of the bustle of Vila Madalena, but in a quiet little street, closed for cars at night, between Aspicuelta and Wisard streets. 5 blocks from the subway station Fradique Coutinho.

When you stay here you will be 15 steps from the ballad. It's not the way to talk, it's true!

The hostel allows guests the best of both worlds: an incredible location and the tranquility that a street with inner city face can provide.

Guests arriving before check-in can leave their luggage and use the common area of ​​the property while the room is not available. View House Rules

    I just love this place, amazing location and extremely friendly staff. Love all the facilities in the hostel and love the place atmosphere. Very friendly staff, specially Andre, Vini and Yuri. The guys know very well the area and Andre took myself and other guests to play basketball in a place nearby, great experience. Keep up the good work guys. I'll definitely stay there again in the future.

    The cleanest hostel with the nicest facilities I have stayed at. We had a slight issue at the start but the owner and Alek (staff) were very very helpful. The hostel has a really good energy about it mainly because of Alek being one of the nicest people we've met in Brazil, he's always smiling and laughing. If we find ourselves back in Sao Paulo we will definitely stay here again

    The hostel’s location was excellent, as were the wifi and hot showers. Clean and with good facilities. It was dead when I was there, so very little social interaction and not very lively. Would go to again just for the location, slap bang in the middle of the bustling bar and restaurant area.

    Nice location; not too far from beco de Batman. Most of the staff were kind and attentive. The place is kept clean, although the bunk beds were not the most comfortable and the room was a bit crammed.

    Really lovely location and good vibes here. The only reason my rating is less than 10 is because my friend who I was travelling with got hit at night by a fan blade that was directly over her bunk bed. I hope this bed will be blocked off for this reason since you can't see the fan when its going fast and it could have been really dangerous! The staff took it seriously when we told them though, so I still feel really confident about this hostel. Enjoy Vila Magdalena!

    Beds are rock solid. We got a private room. The mattress was really hard and the pillows really small and thin. The overall facilities are very basic and people (guessing it’s staff?) sleep on the couches in the common area. Very good location though. Not worth what we paid ($50 Australian dollars for one night in a private). Wouldn’t stay again.
