This hostel is absolutely fantastic and the best we have stayed in till now (4 monts traveling through South America). Location: Can't be better. Just a few minutes walk to avenue Paulista and metrostations. Rooms: Simple but good. We have had a room for two people with shared bathroom. Till now we didn't had really good experiences with shared bathrooms,... More

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.

Small friendly hostel . Good location, Quiet, safe neighbourhood, but still only a few blocks from Av Paulista and Liberdade. Good facilities, clean and tidy rooms. The highlight for me were the great staff who were young, incredibly helpful snd just fun to hang out with.

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.
