Stayed here for just one night Great location close to the train station. Staff helped me with directions to the airport. There was a Nintendo64 console which was good fun. Rooms were nice spacious and clean. Wifi was good and worked throughout the Hostal.

They go out of their way to make you happy by making caipirinhas and involving everyone in stuff that's going on. There is no air con in the rooms which can get hot. The wifi was a little rubbish but...

The hostel is very well located in Vila Madalena, a great neighborhood of São Paulo. The subway station is very close, well-lit and passes a sense of security even close to its closure schedule. The attendants are very attentive and will give you great tips on city attractions.
