“Awesome hostel! Great location! Friendly staff!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The Hostel Paulista is a great hostel at a great location. Two blocks off Av. Paulista, close to Metro, great bars and restaurants, and shopping. Grocery store right across the street. We stayed here during three separate legs of our trip and each time the staff were so friendly and helpful and our rooms were clean and comfortable. The hostel was undergoing a renovation during our stay which will make it an even better place to stay. Take the Urban Bike Tour - It's a great and safe way to see SP at night!

Hello Lynn,

We are so happy for your feedback and to know that we could help you to enjoy your trip so much.
Now we finish the renovation and we offer now a better place for your stay.
The bike tour is best option to visit the city at night and you are lucky to enjoy this aditional option.
I hope to see you soon here in São Paulo and visit us again.

That was my second time staying in The Hostel Paulista with some friends. Staff is quite friendly and cozy. André, João and the girls will give you some good tips to walk around and enjoy São Paulo. The hostel has a great location, one block away from Av. Paulista and the subway station. At the entrance there is a doorphone and a security camera to identify guests. Beds are clean, comfortable, with individual plugs and light - definitely a plus comparing to other hostels, where sometimes it is tough to find a plug to charge your devices or you need to turn on the bedroom light and bother those that are sleeping. Towels offered. Reasonable number of toilets and showers, so there is no need to stay waiting in a line. Great rooftop bar and young atmosphere. Therefore, I do recommend it!

Room Tip: It is a bit hard to get to the top bunk bed, so I advise you to choose the bottom one.

I genuinely enjoyed my stay at the hostel Paulista. The hostel has opened not so long ago, so everthing is quite new. It's clean and the bathroom are really spacious. It's located right to av. Paulista and there is a subway station which is very close. There is a supermarket right on the opposite side. The best thing about the hostel is the staff. They are extremely kind and do their best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Great hostel!

Excellent organization with a super friendly staff, and the best of all is the location in São Paulo with easy access to everywhere! If you are planning to go to São Paulo you really need to Know the "The Hostel Paulista".
