It's very well located, close to avenida Paulista and a lot of tourist attractions like MASP and parks... It has a very friendly environment and it's really clean and comfortable. Alone, with friends or family, it's a very good choice.

I'll preface this review with the fact that I just don't think that my husband and I are the hostel-types. But I also think there is a certain level of comfort you would expect when paying almost $70USD a night. At most, I think this place is worth paying (at most) $25USD per night. The room we were in (room... More

I've been to many hostels throughout Brazil and South America. Believe me, this one is top class. Great staff. Superb location in a very noble spot in São Paulo. Very safe neighbourhood. One block from MASP station. Book in advance!
