This hostel seems to attract all kinds of individuals (-judging by who was staying there for the few days I was). It is very relaxed, and had a good breakfast, bar -and the rooms were good and very well air-conditioned. The staff, or Miguel an Alan in particular, were very helpful and had a great manner.

Loved my stay at Vila Madalena. Tulio was incredibly helpful and didn't let us venture off without a list of places to check out and a personally modified map. With only 2 days in Sao Paulo, he was a life saver and we had a great time. Hostel was excellent; very funky, comfy, and just a pleasure to stay at.

Stayed in the eight bed dorm for three nights and really enjoyed my time here. As a city I thought São Paulo didn't have much to offer and after nearly getting robbed on the metro wen I arrived I didn't venture out from the hostel too much!! Area where the hostel is located is a nicer area of São Paulo,... More

This is a small hostel found in the more artistic side of the city near Vila Madalena (which is a neighborhood as well as the name of the hostel). The staff is very friendly and very helpful when you first arrive, giving you plenty of info about the area as well as a little map so you don't get lost.... More

This hostel is wel located in Sao Paulo. Just a short walk away and you can get the metro. The dorms were big but the beds were very hard. The bathroom is very tiny. However it is clean and there is a nice common room. The staff wasn't helpfull and very unfriendly. When asking for advice or directions the staff... More

Nice hostel with comfortable, spacious rooms. Towels included, beds made up for you. There's a hair dryer and iron you can use free of charge which is a nice touch. Quite a walk from the nearest metro station and its no signage from outside so you'll have to locate it by its street number. Good overall choice.

Vila Madelena is awesome- the hostel is great and gives you heaps of opportunities to meet new people. The staff were amazing and very helpful- the owner is something else :) Activities are organized every day- I would recommend the pub crawl; was so much fun!!! You get to paint on the walls when you leave- look out for "it's... More

This is a really great, funky, cool hostel in a cool, funky area, and we spent three great days exploring it. The hostel has some great touches: cool design, cool quirky little touches, cool art and photos, and the best and most comprehensive intro ever: a tour of the hostel and how it works, a map of the area and...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff is really nice and helpfull. Rooms are all clean and breakfast is nice. The area is safe and lovely to walk around and see all the artistic shops. If you wanna go to a nice jazz bar, definitilley go to number 15 on the map you get at check in!
