During our time in São Paulo we were recommended to stay at Vila Madalena. The hostel was easy to find from the airport and during our time there, the taxi drivers generally knew of the hostel. The location is in a university area - with local restaurants and bars only a small distance away. The hostel itself was clean and... More

Vila Madalena has really nicely designed rooms with small kitchen and mine had an amazing balcony with a view onto the city. Parking garage is very helpful when travelling with the car, especially in Sao Paulo. The hotel is very safe, has a nice small swimming pool and cosy area around it. Location is also very convenient, it is right... More

Our first impression of the hostel was amazing. Victor, the guy that welcomed us showed us around and made us feel at home. The hostel has a cool vibe with graffiti everywhere. We were really lucky too meet a lot of other nice guests when we first arrived. After a few days we were almost alone at the hostel. This... More

When we got to the hostel, we got met by a guy named Victor. He was really really nice and showed us around the whole Hostel. The hostel was almost full when we arrived, but all the guests we met here we're super nice! They have a kitchen there you can make your own food. It's also very clean and... More

Had a lovely time here when I first arrived in South America. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The neighbourhood is really safe a full of great restaurants and bars. They have good security, with lockers, and a buzzing in system. At night there is a small bar. I didn't use the kitchen but it looked well stocked. There are... More

Average hostel. Sparse but functional, has a common room to hang out in. Nice neighborhood. Close to batman alley and the necropolis...a very cool cemetery. Not ideally accessible to public transportation. I had to walk pretty far to get to the subway. The staff are young people in their 20's and we're not as knowledgeable about certain things as I...

After travelling for a few weeks with my parents, we were happy to be back in a hostel to meet other travellers and enjoy the "backpacker atmosphere" again, but in this hostel there was nothing! No other travellers, no nice common area, no breakfast, no nice and helpful staff (the staff was nice, dont get me wrong, but from a... More

This hostel has a great atmosphere and it is easy to meet other travellers. The location is superb with loads of bars and restaurants close. Staff is nice and the rooms big enough and clean. A good base to explore Sao Paulo.

The hostel is really nice and has a great atmosphere. The beds are quite comfortable and the lockers are spacious and work well. The "lounge" area outside is great and includes chairs, hammocks and a pool table. The only downside is the condition of the bathrooms, which need some remodeling (don't forget to bring your flip flops)! Still, I recommend... More

This hostel has a great atmosphere if you're looking to meet other travellers. Has a very unique, cool style, similar to somewhere in Berlin. Interesting graffiti art work around the hostel walls. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm room which was fine. The lockers were good, and the beds comfy. However for me at 6 foot 1 I was... More
