I had high hopes for this place. The staff were really nice, helpful and friendly, yes, but unfortunately the one night I stayed in the girls dorm, I was bitten by something totally vicious and my entire right hand was swollen for 2-3 days after. I could barely sleep 2 hours that night. And no it wasn't a mosquito bite.... More

Only here one night but was a nice place. In a very good area, Vila Madalena. Lots of bars just down the hill. 10 min walk from metro station. Dorms are clean and comfy. Was quiet here. Friendly atmosphere. Only negative was the free breakfast. Not good at all. Otherwise it's a decent hostel.

Good localization and price. It is closer to a lot of bars and places at Vila Madalena. You don´t have to take a taxi. The room looks clean and comfortable. I loved the service and staff. They are very friendly.

We loved Sampa Hostel and their service! I felt like I was home with my friends and the room is very clean and comfortable, but they need to change or start a consciousness sustainable. There's no separates baskets for garbage.

Hello Leticia! Thanks for your comments! Actually the garbage is separate but just "green" and "red" baskets, because it's not necessary to separate everything here. The cleanning lady is oriented about the garbage and once in a week there is a truck that cames to colect the reciclable garbage. Hope to see you again here! Best regards, Sampa Hostel More

We stayed here during World Cup. The accommodation was simple but clean and Deborah was super friendly. However our experience was tainted by other staff who were quite rude and acted as though any request was a major inconvenience. Also, I get that we were there during World Cup, but I do think that letting people party until 5am is... More

Good Hostel, in a nice part of sap Paulo. The stuff was really friendly and always willing to help. Only negative to say about this hostel is that's a little but price. But definitely a recomandation if you are willing to pay a little more.

Staying in Pinheiros

Neighborhood Profile
Pinheiros
Exploring Pinheiros, a neighborhood known for cozy restaurants and cafes, you will notice a youthful energy. Several cultural centers and institutes surround the area and even its main church, Calvário, hosts a traditional Brazilian “Festa Junina” - a celebration with traditional music, dance, and food during the months of June and July. On the weekends, residents gather at Benedito Calixto Square, a loud and crowded area where people enjoy live music drinks alongside the antiquities fair.
