My overall feeling towards 3Dogs can be summed up in the fact that I stayed there a lot longer than I had originally planned. It felt like the kind of place that can become a home away from home, even if it's only for a short while. With that said, I'll let the rest of my review be down-to-business. ATMOSPHERE:... More

Had a really nice time at this hostel. The location is excellent (5 min walk from Metro) and the place is funky but safe and secure. Great staff and the place just seems to attract friendly guests with a really relaxed and fun vibe. We booked online and the amenities and pictures matched exactly as outlined - you get what... More

I spent several weeks at 3Dogs hostel. The banana cake for breakfast was always delicious, and the people who work there are very cool. They have high-speed internet (which is awesome, because most hostels have really low wifi speeds). I also felt secure staying there because of the neighborhood, and there was a staff-member working 24 hours of the day.

Very friendly people! Best Caipiriniha and always good tips. The hip party-street Augusta is nearby as well as the metro station Brigadero. Perfect starting point to visit all the places in Sao Paulo.

Very pleasant and welcoming hostel in a good area. As described and worked well. Owner very friendly and gave good advice on local restaurants. One issue that is worth considering if you are taking a youth group. We booked and had confirmed exclusive use of rooms - including paying for additional beds that we would keep empty - for safeguarding... More

Hi there and thank you for rating 3Dogs! We're terribly sorry about the bed mix-up, and take full responsibility. We were under the impression that the issue as far as money was concerned had been remedied, but apparently it hasn't. We will send you an email about it, and hopefully can still come to a satisfactory agreement. Thanks for staying... More

I stayed 2 months in this hostel and i really recommend it. It's in the middle of a green area (and it's very difficult to find something like this in Sao Paulo), but really close to the city centre in the meantime. Rooms are clean and there's a very big backyard with many sofas where hosts can relax.

It was our first hostel in Sao Paulo and everybody welcomed us with open arms. Good showers and clean. We were in the 10 bedded dorm which is next to the kitchen. I think the other rooms are more quiet but I always sleep with earplugs so I had no problems with noise at all!! My co traveler had a... More

Just 1word: "terrible!", meaning: "pretty cold, expensive, awful, inefficient staff, NO beakfast (because there's no control for you to get one), bad smell and dirty bathrooms". I felt like an abused animal and yes, booked a bedroom with an opposite description.

It's clear to me you left it up to the weather to make or break your stay in Sao Paulo. Your boyfriend got drenched (we sell umbrellas, you drive a car, and you could have waited for the rain to pass in our comfortable public spaces) in order to comply with abundantly advertised policy of payment upon checkin (one that...
