Awesome place! Every staff are extremely respectful. Best location ever at São Paulo city, with a lot of pubs and parties in the same street. Every morning has a delicious breakfast, and the place has a free WiFi to stay connected. A place to know all kind of people, rest a little and stay tuned.

I enjoyed staying there. People are all kind, and the services are excellent. 6 splend days, if I need to go back to Sao Paulo, I'll stay there again, for sure. My week at Sampa Hostel was wonderful! It's unbelievable, and knowing that you are in the middle of Sao Paulo city, and at the same time, in a safe... More

I stayed at Sampa first week of November. The location is great and the hostel is really comfortable and clean with a great breakfast. I stayed in a private room which was fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of Gonçalo who can communicate in several languages, is a great conversationalist and knows the bests spots to go out at night.... More

I did a solo trip through Sao Paolo in Feb 2013 and spent about a week at Sampa. It's a great little place with great staff. I loved that it was set off the street aways, and had a huge courtyard with hammocks for those days caipirinha and nap days ;) It's close to a few corner stores, some little... More

The hostel rooms are clean, prices reasonable and the internet is AWESOME. Exactly what you want in a place to stay! Gonçalo is extremely helpful with activity and restaurant suggestions. Plus the neighborhood is safe and pretty (which is saying something for Sao Paulo!). I absolutely recommend this hostel!

Was in Sampa Hostel in 2011 in December. Excelent service, very clean (just as I like hostels to be). Gonca is an incredible host, always ready to serve patrons, solve our questions, even take us to the best places to eat and have a drink in the neighborhood.

This was the most friendly hostel during our trip in South America.The room was comfortable, the breakfast was great and there was much much beer & caipirinha at night. Obrigado, Gonçalo:) and the district is the best in the city - clubs, bars, shopping, but not as crowded as in the center.

I quite literally stumbled upon the hostel after (perhaps unwisely) deciding to wing it as far as accommodation plans on arrival in SP but boy was I glad I did. The location is tops and the staff are super-friendly and only too happy to share their knowledge of all the city has to offer. The dorms are modest but scrupulously... More

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.
