I stayed in Dec, it's basic but it does all the basics well for what you pay. I had fun meeting all sorts of people who stayed there and the owner even took me out for some drinks with his friends as well as being a fountain of knowledge on the city. Highly recommend!

The staff were lovely and very helpful. It's a 15 minute walk downhill from the Metro station but there isn't really much in the area. Not great for a female alone. The dorm top bunk was super high with no bar or wood to stop you falling. The bathroom is basic but the water is super hot. The breakfast is... More

Such a nice hostel with great staff, great common areas and great atmosphere! I traveled alone but really felt home every time I got back to the hostel! It is also close to Paulista and the huge, beautiful park - and the metro station is just 5 minutes away!

My bed had bed bugs, the sheets were torn and stained, the dorm rooms reeked, I saw a rat running around by the bathrooms, the neighborhood is not great. But it's close to the metro. Stay in Vila Madalena instead.

There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance, and it is possible to walk to Liberdade and other parts of town in under an hour. The hostel itself is rather homey with very friendly staff who... More

Great welcome with English speaking staff. Made real effort to give map, point out local interests and advise on tours. Stayed in dorms. Great big lockers under bed to store luggage. Dorm beds already made on arrival. No breakfast included in price. Wifi was very good. Shower was warm and adequate. Feels like place needs a good spruce up/renovation, felt... More
