“Good hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We stayed at this hostel as part of our World Cup trip and were happy with our choice. The location is quite good, a 10 min walk to Vila Madalena and few minutes to the metro (although the directly surrounding area is not that great). We stayed in a private room which was fine and the bathrooms were generally clean and always had hot water. The staff were nice and the price was reasonable for this period. There isn't a bar so it isn't a party hostel if that is what you are looking for.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and provided lots of info on what to see and do in Sao Paulo. Breakfast was basic (as it usually is in Brazil), but decent. The dorm room was clean, but quite crowded for the amount of space that was available. Close to the Metro and is located in a good neighbourhood.

We only stayed a night but had a great time, friendly people and staff, good social space, the rooms were too small though as there were too many beds in the space given which mean it was difficult to actually put your luggage anywhere and climb up the the top bunk. A bit smoky as the communal outside space was near the window in the dorm. Bathrooms were fine. Location good. Really helpful staff and good atmosphere.

Hey hostel was a wonderful experience for us. The staff were so helpful and so friendly. They were able to answer all of our questions and give us some great tips on the area. The atmosphere was nice, loads of communal space, rooms were clean, It had all the makings of a great hostel. The only problem we had was the toilets were a little bit dirty and the room was a bit hot! I would recommend anybody traveling to sao paulo to stay here!

There are not to many things to fault about hey hostel. Security is great with 24 hour reception and possibly the most friendly and helpful to? Rooms were clean and well set out but only set back was there was only two little fans so on a hot night the rooms can get quit stuffy. All in all this is a awesome hostel good to chill out and explore the massive city of São Paulo.

Also don't forget to ask the staff how to find the locals favourite hangout the empanadas Resteraunt!!

Will stay here again for sure when I am back in São Paulo

Good job hey hostel

Stayed here for three nights. It was ok, in a good location and the staff were excellent and very friendly. But, for a brand new hostel, it was quite dirty (bathrooms) and there was not much going for it in terms of the common areas. Could probably find better.
