Such a nice hostel with great staff, great common areas and great atmosphere! I traveled alone but really felt home every time I got back to the hostel! It is also close to Paulista and the huge, beautiful park - and the metro station is just 5 minutes away!

My bed had bed bugs, the sheets were torn and stained, the dorm rooms reeked, I saw a rat running around by the bathrooms, the neighborhood is not great. But it's close to the metro. Stay in Vila Madalena instead.

The hostel is located in Paraiso, about 15-20 minutes walked from Avenida Paulista and 5-10 minutes walk from the nearest metro station. There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance, and it is possible to walk to Liberdade and other parts of town in under an hour. The hostel itself is rather homey with very friendly staff who... More

We booked this due to the great reviews. Turning up at midnight we were horrified to see the pictures look nothing like the actual run down filthy place. Many of the reviews are fake. There is a sign saying they will give you a free drink for a good review. It's a shame people do this as it was a... More

Hi Nikhil! Reviews are real and we just ask people to give their opnions! Nothing wrong about that! We try to give the best service as possible, we have a daily cleaning laid and all the staff speaks at least 03 languages! You guys arrived 01 o clock in the morning after a big event here in the hostel -... More

Great welcome with English speaking staff. Made real effort to give map, point out local interests and advise on tours. Stayed in dorms. Great big lockers under bed to store luggage. Dorm beds already made on arrival. No breakfast included in price. Wifi was very good. Shower was warm and adequate. Feels like place needs a good spruce up/renovation, felt... More

Highly recommended, gold star! The staff are really fun and friendly and the hostel has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Facilities were good, really clean with cosy beds (slept like a baby!) The location is great, safe area and short walk to the metro with food shops and good places for breakfast nearby. It really made our stay in São Paulo.

We stayed here for 4 nights in our tour if South America. The staff here are extremely helpful and pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at home. The bedrooms are clean and so are all the facilities. Good coffee and tasty fruit every morning was also a nice addition.
