“The best hostel in SP”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

I has been in many hostels in São Paulo, but this is the best. Great location, really near to the subway, many cool places near: many bars, shopping mall, everything. Good reception: the employees help us with information about the city. There are happy hour in wednesday when is possible to known the other guests "if you want". Is clean and there is a good breakfast.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Garoa hostel. It is very close to Faria Lima metro station, which makes it easy to get around the city. Inside the hostel it is spotless, the beds are cormfortable and it is kitted out with modern amenities. What really makes the stay here are the staff. Both Daniel and Vinicius were very helpful. They both have great knowledge of the city and are always happy to help with any queries that you may have. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

You might find the street a bit of, but when you step into Garoa you find a wonderful oasis. Beside the clean rooms and common areas, you are welcomed and advised by the best staff you can imagine. English speaking, friendly and very knowledgable about São Paulo the staff always have a good idea of where to go or what to eat. It's close to the metro so no problem getting around SP. The hostel is brand new and so are the beds, kitchen and facilities in general. We stayed in the private ensuite, which felt more like a hotel (you even have you own minibar and a desk). Our best night was the BBQ in the relaxing courtyard, where residents, staff and friends met for a night with beer, caipirinha and red juicy met. We would never stay any other place in São Paulo.
