I cant understand why this is the first rating mentioning bedbugs, because there were a lot of them. We stayed in the 14-bedroom and after 15 minutes there were more than 10 of them in each of our beds.
Positive point of the hostel is the safe location, which made it not so dangerous for us to change the hostel after 10pm.
Staff was quite friendly before we were checking out, but after they didn't even said sorry or something.
I would definetly not recommend the hostel to anyone because, but the surrounding was quite nice.

After making a reservation on hostelbookers and a 8 hour bus ride, I arrived at escambo at 9pm to find that they overbooked and had no bed for me. The staff did their best to help me find another room but everything was full and had to stay far out of the area. If they had given notice I would have a different opinion but they are clearly unorganized.

Stayed for a couple of nights in their private room. Room is well equipped and nice but the description on booking.com mentions "soundproofing", which really is a joke, sleeping was a bit hard first night when much traffic noise got in from the street. Also if you sleep in the upper double bed, you have lights from the street right in your face all night. You sleep better in the two single beds below. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was far below my experence of hostel average in brazil - nothing like the description I see they have on booking.com.

Loved the hostel, staff were so nice and kind and the wifi is great!!!!

Beds are comfortable, breakfast is tasty, coffee is strong and full of flavour.

Would recommend this place to anyone who wants info on São Paulo, the places to see and if you like football because there is a great knowledge about football there.

Also they have cable tv so can watch whatever while your chillin out with an amazing beer.
