Very clean, good location, laundry service, and the staff are extremely helpful (They helped me navigate the police report process for a camera that was stolen while exploring Sao Paulo). I would definitely recommend.

I can easily describe this hostel as a peaceful place in the heart of São Paulo. The staff is amazing, kind and helpful. The rooms are very clean and tidy, the breakfast is really enjoyable. I was astonished by the cozy environment and the price - it's really cheap. Near the Paulista Avenue, I would definitely go for it again.

Excellently-run place in a quiet neighbourhood. While I was there it had some very helpful staff on hand in reception who gave out good advice and were very approachable and friendly. My room was simple but very clean and fine for the length of my stay. There's a nice communal area, a computer with free internet and a good breakfast.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
