We stayed here for four nights during the World Cup. Despite minor inconveniences (kitchen not well equipped, some staff not speaking a single word of English), the hostel had a great and big common area, so meeting other guests, watching the games together and cooking our meals was pleasant and easy. Unfortunately I couldnt say the same about sleeping quality:...

Belo Horizonte is not an interesting city compared to all the chill beautiful places in Brazil, but the staff are some of the best I have met in this country. Everyone was great.

We stayed a week in Ginga Hostel. They have bilingual staff and offer a lot of interesting activities, like daily tours and pub crawls. There are a lot of interesting sights in the city. You can visit also the historical cities nearby or do some ecosports, like trekking, bike tours, waterfalls etc. Clean, save place and best localization!

I stayed at Ginga for two nights in a dorm and can affirm all positive facts that were mentioned before. It was really relaxed there, it is a spacious house with comfortable beds, "rede", wi-fi and a large living room/kitchen. The area where it's located is safe and confortable and it takes approx. only 15 minutes to parque municipal f.ex.
