Liked: The structures and location

Disliked: There are little signs in the area that can be used for the achievement of directions. The directions given on the website cannot be followed properly by a stranger. The hostel must get in touch with the urban development authorities to improve signage in the area, right from Faria Lima station to the street the hostel is located on.

Liked: Close to subway station. Helpful staff.

Disliked: The hot water taps had all been disabled so tou could only use the cold water tap which was set to like warm. Sometimes the shower was pretty cold with no way to turn up the heating. Sinks for bruahing teeth etc were located in main hall so you had to beuah teeth, shave etc with people walking past.

Liked: This is the best hostel I've stayed in in south america! The hostel is modern and has been purpose built for travellers, from large lockers that fit large backpacks to a very modern kitchen. The staff (especially Vinicius!) were extremely helpful, and even took some of us out to a local block party! Included was a continental breakfast, and also a toastie maker! The atmosphere in the hostel was very warm and friendly. Would definitely stay again!

Liked: Stayed for a week during pre-carneval, had an amazing experience. friendly multilingual (portugese, spanish, english and russian) staff who knew a lot about the city, very willing to help and socialize. Very nice garden with a friendly atmosphere, day and night, where the varied breakfast was also served during the mornings. Good location, just a few minutes from the metro. Really a hostel to recommend!
