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.

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.
