I loved this place.  Wifi was excellent the best speed we've come across for a long time! Our bed in our private room was really comfortable.  There was also a fan and a TV and a wardrobe which was a useful storage space.   We encountered several staff members and they all spoke English. We were warmly welcomed and given... More

Helpful staff, nice residential neighbourhood. Private room was a good size with a kingsize bed. Room had a private bathroom, but it wasn't great - poorly fitted and shower wasn't very powerful. We're a couple in our mid-thirties and this was a good budget option for us for a couple of nights as Sao Paulo is not a cheap city.

After 3 weeks backpacking in Brazil it was a delight to stay at this hostel. It was in a great location near to the metro station. Was superclean compared to the other hostels we stayed in Brazil. Service just amazing: staff was not only helpful but very attentive with all their guests. The generous breakfast was just the cherry on... More

Not a party hostel, which is great for a good night's sleep, but not great for meeting people. - Great location, in a safe area (there is a neighborhood watch guard on the street hired by the residents) and about 5 mins walk to the metro: take Dr. José Queiros Aranha street 2 blocks downhill and turn left. It's on... More

When I stayed here, I wondered whether I just had high expectations as most of the hostels I have stayed in have been in Europe, but on reflection I think I was being fair. The breakfast was good, lots of choice and nice coffee. There was one very friendly host, but apart from that I did not find them to... More

I loved this Hostel. I booked a couple of nights, as I usually do where ever i go, but stayed more than a week before i went to Santa Catharina. The hostel is super clean, quiet, peaceful, wonderful and friendly staff. I want to send a big hug to Rodrigo and co. The location is just wonderful in one of... More

Everything was fine until I developed tiny red itchy dots on my arms and legs which the owner said "maybe you´re allergic to something." Being in the medical field, I know this is NOT an allergy but bed bug bites. When my friend found the actual bed bug crawling slowly on his right forearm, then they acknowledge that we were... More

We normally stay in private rooms, but with Sao Paulo being as expensive as it is we opted for the 4 bed mixed dorm which had 2 other males in it. Dorm was well laid out and quite spacious. Each bed had separate light, power points and draw. Upstairs 3 showers, downstairs 3 toilets. Breakfast was great being served until... More
