As soon as we walked into this hostel it had such a good vibe, really cool place. Henetta made us feel so welcome, she's brilliant. Great wifi, works in the rooms too, and different activities going on every day so there's always something to do. Really close to a metro station so very easy to get around and explore São...

Hey! Thanks for your feedback! Your opinion is very important to us. We are studying the possibility of setting new fans and a air-conditioning system, so good to know it would be welcome! Thanks again! Cheers!

I stayed here for 2 nights and will be returning next week. Beds are comfortable, price is ok and there are lockers for your valuables. Bring your own padlock. There is a chill out area and a bar. The best thing about this place though is the staff. They are so pleasant and helpful. I had a problem booking an...

We really enjoyed the time in this hostel. Sure there is things how can be improved but really, it was super organised. They were friendly and good English speakers. Clean rooms, clean sheets, good lockers with electrical outlet, a great and cheap bar with a free caipirinha every day ! The bad thing is about the bathroom... Not really good...

Was greeted by friendly staff and other great guests. Other reviews might be right in saying that it is not extremely well furnished, but it's great value for money and an extremely fun time! Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a sociable hostel.

Room was good, the showers are timed so if you like long hot showers, go somewhere else. The staff were super friendly and helpful, probably the most sociable staff I met in my three months of travelling. The location is decent, walking decent to the metro, which takes you anywhere. They also seemed to have social things/parties every night.

A nice and clean hostel. Very friendly staff. People living here where also nice and we had a really good time. It is in a good neighborhood also. The bar was ok, not really a party hostel but we might have visited in the wrong season. They had good wifi and a lot of information about Brazil and São Paulo.

I stayed there about a week. It's a nice clean hostel, freindly staff and quiet at night. Down side is the breakfast, just a coffe or tea but it goes with the resonable price for Sao Paulo hostel. Overall good times!

I'm Brazilian and from my point of view, this is the worst hostel I've been in Brazil(among six Brazilian states and dozens of hostels). Just few blocks from there I found others with all included (lockers, breakfast, towel, hot water, etc.) for plus R$10 only. PS.: This hostel doesn't provided in the price: lockers, breakfast, towel.

Thanks for your comments. Best or worst, it really depends on what you're looking for. For us a hostel is a social accomodation. You can get a more amenities elsewhere (for more money of course) and stay in a boring environment... Just like a hotel. That's not us. We offer a decent stay with fun staff and guests, free caipirinhas...

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.

Other amenities include a guest kitchen, free Internet access and a TV with DVDs in the reception area. Bathroom facilities are shared with one designated for women only.
