“Good welcome, place run down ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

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 a bit grotty and not nicest place we have stayed in 6 months around South America, needs some licks of paint and didn't appear generally very clean. 

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

Had a fantastic month here whilst doing a course in Sao Paulo. Staff are brilliant, really make you feel at home. The whole place has a relaxed atmosphere; great living room with projector screen, good kitchen facilities, nice outdoor communal area. The whole place is kept very clean, hot water in shower, gym/meditation room to use whenever you like. If you want somewhere to chill out after working/backpacking etc, this is the place to be! Very sad that my time here has ended, best wishes for everyone at the hostel, I will return ASAP!

Highly recommended, gold star! The staff are really fun and friendly and the hostel has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Facilities were good, really clean with cosy beds (slept like a baby!) The location is great, safe area and short walk to the metro with food shops and good places for breakfast nearby. It really made our stay in São Paulo.

We stayed here for 4 nights in our tour if South America. The staff here are extremely helpful and pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at home. The bedrooms are clean and so are all the facilities. Good coffee and tasty fruit every morning was also a nice addition.

I had such a wonderful time staying at the Zen Hostel, the whole staff was super friendly and told us all the right places to go to. The location is splendid and the bed are very comfortable. I would book there again without hesitation next time I visit Sao Paulo !

I spent a great time here this summer. The people are very friendly, the room i stayed in was clean and very comfortable. Very strategic location, no loud noises. Simply a great place to spend your vacation.
