I can easily describe this hostel as a peaceful place in the heart of São Paulo. The staff is amazing, kind and helpful. The rooms are very clean and tidy, the breakfast is really enjoyable. I was astonished by the cozy environment and the price - it's really cheap. Near the Paulista Avenue, I would definitely go for it again.

Excellently-run place in a quiet neighbourhood. While I was there it had some very helpful staff on hand in reception who gave out good advice and were very approachable and friendly. My room was simple but very clean and fine for the length of my stay. There's a nice communal area, a computer with free internet and a good breakfast.

I chose this hostel for essentially a business trip as it seemed to be on a good location for where I needed to be and of more value than hotels on similar or worse locations. It exceeded all my expectations. Very comfortable room (I was solo), clean, nice breakfast, more than enough space to relax or even do some work.... More

Pousada dos Franceses is a great place. Helpful, friendly and informed staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The Breakfast has the exceptional choice of almost everything!!! We stayed with our two kids ( ages 8 and 5)- they felt at home. It is in a great location, very central and at the same time quiet. Best of both worlds! Hopefully... More

Stayed in a shared girls dorm for 3 nights with a friend whilst visiting sao paulo for a long weekend. The staff were chatty and friendly and very helpful.

This is, by far, the best place that i have stayed during my month long world cup trip to brasil. I have travelled to different cities in brasil and stayed in various hostels. None of the hostels that i have stayed were as good as pousada dos franceses.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
