The hostel was very close to the Tietê bus station and metro stations so it is excellent for getting about the city. The area itself looks rather run-down and is not very pleasing on the eye, but despite this, it appears to be a very...More

We arrived at 11:oo after a night on the bus. However we couldn't check in before 14:oo unless we pay extra. I travelled South america and I have never heard anything like this. This is such a rip off and so inconvenient for travellers! Obviously...More
