Liked: O preço

Disliked: A localização é boa, perto do metro, porém de noite a rua é um pouco perigosa. Estamos em 3 e reservamos 2 quartos, 1 deles estava horrível, muito sujo, cama super desconfortável, o outro estava bem mais limpo e com a cama boa.

Liked: the location was quite good. Not far from the metro station. Staff was friendly. Room was spacious

Disliked: the room was a bit bleak. Same for the breakfast room. The surroundings are not exactly as nice as you would gather from the foto. Not really cheap. But I guess there are not many cheap single rooms in Sao Paulo

Backpacking / gap year

13 March 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: private bathroom and breakfast being included were positives. location was near avenida paulista and fairly close to Jardins and centre (20-30 min walk). Liberdade area and Japan town good.

Disliked: not too comfortable bed, noisy people in room or apartment next door, shower and toilet combined so whole bathroom got wet. just felt a bit basic for the price

15 May 2010 Laszlo would recommend this property

Liked: The manager, Mr Wong, is really helpfull and kind. Its ok location and clean hostel. It feels secure, but i couldnt find any locker (maybe because I had a private room). The hostel is not so cosy and I dont think this is the place to have fun. I think its a little bit expensive, but everything is expensive in Sao Paulo. I recommend this hostel anyway because the staff is really kind and helpfull!!!

Liked: This hostel lacked atmosphere. Alhough it did offer quite a nice basic breakfast with bread/toast, ham, cheese, jam, fruit, coffee, tea & juice. There wasn't alot to do close by but the hostel is located within a short walking distance to 2 metro stations. The owner is more than happy to assist you with anything.

Denise Ryan

07 February 2010

Liked: We stayed 3 nights in this ´hostel´ but hostel is not an accurate description. we experienced unhelpful staff, inadequate and poor facilities, cold welcome on arrival (no greeting, simply a hand in front of us demanding payment while we are sweating with our heavy rucksacks on our backs) and a strange uncomfortable atmosphere. not value for money at all. room basic. very very poor unacceptable breakfast- coffee, sliced bread, cheap ham. we had to ask for jam...just one computer for internet which is constantly being used & broke down once. Only pluses are good location, clean & quiet. But would definetly not recommend this hostel to any travellers.

Liked: Highly recommended hostel in a very good location. <10mins walk to Av Paulista with a variety of shops, restaurants and bars all within a safe walking distance. The owner has been very helpful and friendly and helped us to overcome some language barriers when booking onward travel. The double room is spacious and clean and the kitchen is well equipped for all basic cooking. The owner speaks good English and is happy to accommodate you in any way he can.
