Very nice place to stay. Has a nice outdoor area with hammocks. Bathrooms were clean. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and helped me figure out how to fix the broken vivo cell service. Would recommend.

The hostel is located two blocks from the Vila Madalena Subway Station in Sao Paulo. Sorrounding area is a nice neighborhood with supermarkets and restaurants a few blocks away. I would say that Vila Madalena is a very good choice for spend some days in Sao Paulo. It is far from the Paulista Avenue though, but you can get easily... More

We ended up at Alice after trying a few other hostels in the area which were full. It was our lucky day as this hostel was really great! We stayed in a 8 bed dorm which was bright and clean with lockers. Each bed had it's own light, power outlet and little basket for storage. Breakfast was amazing with freshly... More

We stayed in this lovely place in December 2014. Located in Vila Madalena, a very nice neighborhood, this hostel allows you to see everything of Sao Paulo quickly. Bars and restaurants are some minutes away, also a Metro stop. This place is very creative and cosy: The staff was always very helpful, and very polite from the first moment. Nina,... More

I've stayed on several occasions at this place and I can tell that it is all about the charm of your grandma’s house, with a little twist. The place is really great and the staff is always helpfull. Even though I don't stay there this much (I'm living in Sao Paulo) I still go there on their parties and events.

If I were to get stuck in a hostel I would choose this one. It had a welcoming feeling without the 'in crowd' that some hostels have. I felt at home with the friendly staff who took their time to show us around and help us with language problems we'd been having online. It was clean and spacious, I stayed... More

A secure, clean and friendly hostel recommended to solo travellers and more. The reception is like a tourist information and the staff will go out of their way to help and make recommendations. It's close to the hustle and bustle but far enough away for a silent nights sleep. Lockers and reading lights for every bed and even though we... More

We stayed here twice once at the beginning and at the end of the 3 week holiday to Brazil. Once we found it, read the directions before turning up, it's really easy to find and close to the metro. All the staff were great and on return visit we weren't as shy at helping ourselves to the free coffee ans... More

We stayed during the world cup for only 2 nights but would have stayed for more if given the chance. Easy to find from the nearby Via Magdalena subway station, we were met by welcoming hosts who made us feel totally at home from the moment we arrived. Our room was clean, secure and cosy, located to the rear of... More

We only stayed here 2 nights but wished we had stayed longer. So far this is one of the best hostels we've stayed in. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The beds we're comfy with warm quilts. The place was spotless and communal areas were lovely places to chill out. The garden is lovely, there's TV and a guest... More
