As I was doing my first "on-m-own-trip" I was very nervous how it's going to be. My first stop was in Garden House Hostel and I could not imagine having a better start than I had here. The rooms are big but also cozy, very clean and the service there is just awesome. The people working there are very helpful... More

Spent one night in this Garden House hostel. It is clean, easily accessible, you get free breakfast, free walking tours, friendly people, free wifi and computers, clean toilets and there is always someone at the reception to help you- it's just perfect :D

Disliked : - Wifi is really bad. For the first 1,5 days it didn't work at... More

Great location, 10 mins walk to Sao Bento train station. Room is very clean with air condition. Hostel is well maintained, kitchen has everything you will need. Can get pretty noisy at night if the staff didn't try to keep the guests' volume down at reception area.

Absolutely nice hostel, very central but peaceful. Nice garden and functional kitchen. Guests are very mixed and the atmosphere very nice. The rooms spacious and very clean. Only negative Point: the signal of the wifi is not strong enough in the rooms on the 3rd floor.

The hostel has an excellent location and that's it. I was furious to find out the barhrooms were mixed, which I didn't know before and wouldn't have chosen this particular hostel had I known. The building is beautiful and very nicely decorated, but the walls are thin as paper, you can hear every sound, so I couldn't sleep. Also, the... More

It's located on a great street, near important the subway and bus stops. You can walk to many main sights from there. The staff is very friendly and reliable. And the rooms are very clean and tidy. In the morning there is a breakfast.
