Great Location: 5 minutes walk from the Vila Mariana Subway Station and with several bus stops around. Ok-ish Staff: Welcoming and polite. But not super helpful if you need something beyond the basic. That can easily mean trouble, specially if you are a foreign and don't speak English. The cleaner/cooker was opnely rude to us, but I believe she is... More

Nothing to say about the hostel location aswell, it is just a five minutes walk from the Vila Mariana metro station. The only downside must be the dark... More

I spent 3 nights in this hostel and have to say it was probably the best one I stayed in during my 4 week trip to Brazil. The dorm I stayed in was really spacious and clean, the staff were friendly/helpful and spoke good English and the manager Fabio was brilliant with all his guests. I cant recommend this hostel...

Showed up at the door owner gave us a room by our selves for the four of us, and sorted out us getting food from his chief mate who came round the second night we stayed, very cool relaxed place. Breakfast wasn't that great, bread and a toasty with a slice of ham, had worst but had better.

“I only saw the six and eight bed dorms, and stayed in a six bed. The eight bed dorm looked really spacious and had its own bathroom, but the six bed dorms shared one. Overall I think it just depends on what you're looking for since one didn't seem much better than the other.”
