Liked: The hostel was easy to find. It's got lots of great character and lovely little chill out areas. On arrival we were given a map and information on what to do and see in the city. We were also shown around the hostel so we were comfortable with where everything was. We were in the 12 bed dorm which is absolutely lovely with secure lockers for everyone (remember to take you own padlock). It is extremely clean has separate bathrooms for men and women which is quite nice when you have been sharing for a while. We were here in the off season so it was relatively quiet but it would be a great little place to meet some other travellers when it's more busy.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff were incredibly helpful, the location was great, close to heaps of great bars and restaurants. The tv/common room made it social if you wanted to go out but as there is no bar at the hostel it ensures people go out and the hostel is quiet at night. Also the free tea, coffee and biscuits was a nice touch.

Disliked: While I was aware there was no air con, the 12 bed dorm gets really hot (despite fans) as the window is a bit on the small side for the scale of the room. Also the $120 airport pickup is incredibly expensive and therefore we took the subway which took over 2 hours.

The property's response is

First you didn't talk with the owner. Second you didn't read the others reviews or about us. That is the reason you didn't know nothing about us. We don't have a breakfast, but we have coffe, tea, and cookies between 7h to 19h , people use to wake up late because we are in the most important party and restaurants district in São Paulo. Was Chaotic your belongs aorund your lookers and your bed. We don't like guests making a mass in our hostel.

Liked: The stuff is lovely and very helpful and you can get coffee from the morning until 7pm (and some cookies too :-))

Disliked: The showers could be more powerful and the windows sealed as it gets quite cold when you get a bed on the window...
