The common area around the entrance is very nice and cozy with big couches and magazines and a bar, a very nice spot to hang out. The room we stayed in was big, but a bit 'without soul' -white bunk beds, white walls, nothing special, but better that than dirty. The ensuite bathroom was surprisingly big, even had a bath...

I chose this hostel knowing that I would be exhausted after a trip around Europe. I hired their pick up service, only to have one of the owners come to greet me! It was great getting to chat and to have someone who could give me a basic orientation of the city. Fabio was wonderful. His son Victor checked me...

Close to the metro, amazingly friendly staff with the most useful tips on what to do in the city. The owner took us on a free city tour and generally people are just really nice! Good breakfast, clean place with a great vibe and a nerdy theme. If you want to party, there's potential, if you don't, get a room...

The staff here was pretty relaxed...some other reviews I read said they are inattentive, but I found them to be really helpful if you just ask. Cleanliness was pretty standard though at the end of the day the bathrooms could get a little dirty and the kitchen could have used a cleaning. Otherwise the internet was free and reliable, common...

I may be biased as I had just moved from what must be the worst hostel in SP (Saci), to this sanctuary of cleanliness and friendliness. It was clean, smelled nice, the staff were helpful (though forgot to tell us until the final day there was breakfast!!). I recommend this place, and the lovely neighbourhood it is in. Don't forget...

Telstar does a ot of things right, it`s certainly a good shout for Sao Paulo. It`s in a very safe, residential area of Sao Paulo and is easy to reach using public transport, either from the airport or the bus terminals. The only downside of the location is that there isn`t an abundance of shops or restaurants around that would...

Generally a very good hostel! Very nice staff Not many people when I visited so not so fun not what I was looking for anyway. Cleanliness in the bathroom could be better.

“If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the pool, as you can get a bit of noise if there are people down there in the evening.”

“I only saw the six and eight bed dorms, and stayed in a six bed. The eight bed dorm looked really spacious and had its own bathroom, but the six bed dorms shared one. Overall I think it just depends on what you're looking for since one didn't seem much better than the other.”
