Liked: The location is perfect. Easy walk from metro in the heart of Vila Madalena. Breakfast is included and while it's nothing out of the ordinary, it's one of the better ones I've had in Brazil. It would be great if they offered scrambled or fried eggs. Than it would be awesome.

Dear, Sampa Hostel has dorm rooms of 04 and 6 people,plus private and double rooms as well.
Here through the HI hostel system is only possible to book a dorm room for 8 persons but if you had told at check in we could had changed your reservation for a smaller room according to availability.
Sincerely!

Dear, we are undergoing a period of reforms for improvements in all the toilets in the hostel, scheduled to be finish in December this year yet.
After this period all the bathrooms will have soap to wash hands.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Liked: It's not a party hostel, but it's still a good place to meet people from around the world. Friendly staff. Barbeque was delicious. Nice flat-screen TV downstairs. Supermarket around the corner. 10 minute walk to the metro or bus station. Security gate made me feel safe.

Disliked: Bathrooms were smelly and not clean. Very mediocre kitchen.

Liked: The location, for those looking to be inside the bar circuit of Vila Madalena, is good.

Disliked: Dirty, terribly smelling rooms. ONE bathroom located inside the room area. That means if just one person goes to the bathroom all the others have to go outside.


The property's response is

There are two complete bathrooms (with shower and hot water) inside the hostel and two complete bathrooms outside opposite to the rooms, four large and private bathrooms to serve 20 beds, so, 5 beds for every bathroom, and we also offer private suites for guests who seek more comfort during the stay and prefer to use the bathroom with exclusivity. The rooms are cleaned daily, it is important if you feel uncomfortable with a situation to report to the reception
Sincerely!
The Management
