This hostel is very comfortable, clean and have a good location. I made great friends there, there a nice common area. The rooms are very clean and cozy.
My only complain is about the staff. When I stayed there, the hostel was almost empty, and they woke me up very early in the last day for make the checkout and take off my things, few hours before the checkout time.

It's not the better neighborhood to stay, but it worth it because of the price, if you're going by yourself. About 40 reais and you get a good bed, with a locker, breakfast... They have the certification of the Hostelling International. This price is for members only. Take a look in their site, but I think that is free to become a member when checking in.

Room Tip: You can take each bed for 40 reais or an entire room with four beds and private bathroom for 160 rea...

It's probably one of the best hostels that I stayed. Good location, excellent services, very clean and organized. Sr. Carlos, the owner of the hostel, is also a remarkable person to get to know. He was director of Hostel International (HI) for many years and he knows what to do(!).
There is just one weakness, around the hostel there are many prostitutes and transvestites... However, the streets are safe and is possible to walk around without much fears - be smart.

Room Tip: There are private and shared rooms, check it out before you go.

Its super clean family hostel, price is little bit expensive for students but from sheets to bathrooms everything is super clean, breakfast is very rich. Staff is friendly and kind, but having little bit difficulty with the language, but its not a big deal actually its better for visitors to grab some portugues words

What a clean and friendly place!

I spent 5 days in the hostel Boutique and if I ever go back to Porto Alegre, I will definitely be staying there.

The place is close to the center, to el Mercado Publico, I walked all the time and did need any bus or cab...only for late nights :)

The staff, the owner are helpful and will give you some hints and tips about the area.

Free Wifi and excellent network.

Nice breakfast and vegetarian plate upon request.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: You can choose a private room (for one person and up to 4, subject to availability) or a bed in a do...

The Porto Alegre Hostel Boutique in a very basic place, run unprofessionally and with a hideous breakfast, all at an incredibly overpriced rate.
To add to the atmosphere, the street it is on is the main prostitution hub in Buenos Aires. It is dodgy to walk at night, and it will be so noisy at night that you will hardly be able to sleep (we stayed during a weekday!).
Try elsewhere, we are going back to Porto Alegre and won't stay there again.

It's facility is nice. Good bed, cleaned bath room with enough shower, good kitchen. Price is a little high. This hostel discourage walk-in and phone reservation. Walki-in price or phone reservation price is substantially high ( hostelworld 35 real vs work-in 50 real ). I did not bother to reserve it online because I just stayed one night and did not like to take the risk of cloning of my credit card which is often happened in Brazil. The safe deposit box for valuable is a joke which seem to me not safe at all.Most travelers are from Brazil and nearby countries with limit English. The Hostel seems to locate redlight district or similar area. Prostitutes stand right on the street in front of hostel. I feel the area is pretty safe but might not suitable for people with conservative value from English speaking country. It is good place to stay one night for changing bus in Porto Alegre.

Room Tip: reserve it via hostelworld one day advance to get good price.
