About CityLights Hostel

In the intensity of Sao Paulo, we have made a hostel that embodies the things we value: Design.Sustainability. Authenticity.
Our in-house architect has reinvented a classic 1930s Sao Paulo house with sustainable building practices, salvage materials and a bit of classy DIY. Our intimate bar, shared kitchen, and congenial open spaces are available to those staying in our six shared and two private rooms.

Accommodation Information

CityLights Hostel have dorm-style rooms varieing from 4 to 11 beds, an all girls ensuite dorm room, and two private rooms with queen beds and contemporary bathrooms. All standard rooms have a sink. Each bed has an individual power socket, reading light, and locker.

Location Information

Our great location makes it easy to arrive and easy to access all different sites and attractions that Sao Paulo has to offer. Located on a quite little street off of Av. Faria Lima, Rua Padre Garcia Velho is right in between Vila Madalena which is known for a large verity of bars and clubs, and Pinheiro which is becoming one of Sao Paulo's finest gastronomic neighborhood.
We are also less than a 5 minute walk from Faria Lima Metro station.
