Liked: Location, location, location!Seriously, there are other minor pros and cons but the excellent location makes all the difference.(Opposite airport bus-stop, 1 block from Paulista city sights and bars, 2 blocks from metro to get to other city sights, then any decent nightclub is a taxi or bus away, no matter where you start, so you might as well be central.)Wednesday night drinks (with locals) is cool.

Disliked: Common space not particularly social.Not all staff are excellent and forthcoming, but very helpful when you ask.

Liked: location and football deco

Disliked: When we saw the dorm we were supposed to stay in, we decided to find another hostel. The room was in the basement, the smell was terrible, you had to leave the building in order to go to the main part of the hostel, where the bathrooms are. The bedlinen smelled as if it had never been washed and when I asked if it had been changed yet, the answer was 'yes', so I guess they just don't wash it. It didn't look very safe either, especially that you could look into the dorm from the street. The kitchen is very small, the common area dark and uncomfortable. I don't recommend staying there.

Liked: Location is good. Beds are comfy and clean and there is a fairly good kitchen.

Disliked: Costs a lot more if you do not book it through the Internet. They did not have one decent map of Sao paulo to use instead we were given one with street names on which didn't cover the centre and one with tourist sites and no street names. Mainly Brazilian people staying here and most of them seem to live here so there is hardly any room in fridge and it's not easy to meet people.
