We only stayed here the one night connecting flight. The staff were great, explaining where's good to go and where to avoid. Great recommendations! The room (private double) was massive and really quiet. I slept so well and I can't say that for many places in brazil :-) Breakfast was great!!! I'd thoroughly recommend

This is in the centre of Sao Paulo and is slightly cheaper than in some of the safer districts. We had booked through the HI website, and when we arrived and checked in we discovered that we could have got a better rate if we hadn't, which was annoying, as surely HI website should give members the best rates?

Very good value for money! Our twin room was big and comfy, great beds and ensuite. Breakfast excellent - proper buffet style - nothing like the standard hostel coffee and toast! Great staff too! Agrees with everything glamismac wrote previously - and downtown S.P. is safe nowadays although parts are a bit dodgy.

During our Brazilian trip we've been in several places, some very dirty and some very clean and good. This was old but very cleaned and well organized (it's part of Hostelling International chain). The Sao Paulo Hostel Downtown is in a pretty old building, but overall is a good if you're low on budget. We took the double with private... More

We stayed in 2009 and the staff were very friendly and helpful; giving us advice and directions. The room was clean and fresh. There was a fridge, TV, extra blankets, hangars and effective air conditioning. The bathroom was spacious enough and clean. The shower had good pressure and temperature control. The curtains weren't very good at keeping out the bright... More

After reading a few revues I was not sure what to expect. This Hostel is in a great location for seeing the sights of Sao Paulo. I never felt unsafe in the area and did walk about in the evenings. The staff are very helpful and the Wifi certainly worked while I was there. My room double for single was... More

It seemed more like a hotel than a hostel, with clean towels every day and the large, multi-storey building. The staff were very professional and helpful. The breakfast was very good. Free wi-fi and a decent kitchen were an added bonus. It was close enough to restaurants, supermarkets and the metro station to be convenient. Not much personality, but a... More
