Beats Hostel Sao Paulo
Reviewed 9 February 2013 via mobile

Like the title says, if you're just having a one night lay-over in the city, this place is fine.

Pros:
Cheap price; great location at the heart of the city, close to the metro, big supermarket and a big mall; breakfast is quite good; wi-fi is a speedy delight; the hostel offers a laptop for just R$ 1 for unlimited time!

Cons:
The rooms are too small to fit 10 people in my opinion; lockers are not large enough to store big trekking packs; smokers smoke near the kitchen/reception room and that's very uncomfortable to me; reception staff should pay closer attention to the bed management system, because twice have a new guest taken over my bed.

Basically an alright hostel. While most of the staff is really friendly one of them ( it's the one with shaved hair on the sides) is extremely unfriendly. He wouldn't say a word to you while ordering drinks. Instead of playing the usual good music he watches tv shows over the big speakers on a Friday night at a bar. After i asked him to play some music he rolled his eyes played one song (momma Mia theme) and then went back to his show. And by the way they have got a bed bug problem.

Hello, thank you for your review. We're sorry for the problem with the staff. The person you're talking about doesn't work with us anymore. We question a little bit the ethicality of posting a pic of a person along with negative feedback about that person, while reviewing a hostel. The bedbug problem has been identified and resolved. We hope you enjoyed São Paulo, happy trails!

Hi! This is definitely the best party hostel i've been to. the atmospere is great. The guys at night love parties and throw in some good music. Good deals for drinks. I think the happy hour could be longer perhaps. In the weekend the beautiful breakfast lady made me forget my hangover. Must go to Agosto street 5 mins by taxi. Only thing is shower curtains too small and short. Minor thing i told them about. Thanks all.

it was my first time in sao paulo and i admit i was a bit wary of everything but the staff couldn't have been more wonderful, making me relaxed - the fact that the breakfast was amazing also helped!
to sum it up, it's a friendly, cozy place with nice beds and unexpensive: everything a hostel needs to be

A friend an I originally booked rooms at 3 Dogs hostel but for some reason most likely via the booking website it didn't go through. So on arrival to 3 Dogs we found it was fully booked and we had no beds reserved. They recommended this new sister hostel saying it has same facilities and as it was closer to Av Paulista we decided to go with it. Maybe it's because it's still early days but from what I've heard about 3 Dogs you cannot compare the two. One receptionist was particularly unhelpful and rude and actually said we could not have breakfast that was being served while we arrived because our checkin wasn't till 1.30. That's the first time a hostel hasn't allowed you to have breakfast like that as most know you're only there that early because of an overnight flight or bus. The staff also had little traveller knowledge of what's on and where's good to go for things. The bedrooms were compact, I haven't got a problem with 10 beds in a room but there was little floor space and bunkbeds were up to 3 beds tall. They seem to also only have two toilet/shower combo rooms for the whole hostel, bar the ensuite room, so their floors were always wet and grim. Having stayed here has made me make sure I reserve enough in advance that I get the hostel I want to stay at. Definitely won't be returning unless there's no space elsewhere.

Hi there and thank you for your review.
There are in total 5 showers/toilets, for 32 beds that makes 1shower for every 6 guests. Perhaps you missed the one behind the kitchen. Perhaps you also missed the 2 meter square map next to the entrance, marked with about 20 specific highlights of the city, how to get there, when to get there, and duration. After your review, I've instructed my staff to do a more thorough walk through of the place. We do hope to see you again in Sao Paulo!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Beats Hostel Sao Paulo is a cheaper Hostel, 2 blocks from Avenida Paulista. 400 meters from the metro on vibrant Avenida Paulista, close to the clubs, bars and restaurants. Beats hostel has a lively Bar, 5 clean-ish showers and free buffet breakfast with fruits, ham, cheese, milk etc. Listen, our stuff is older, ok? You're not going to find any spiffy new design chairs here. Our floors are scuffed. Our walls are painted only bi-anually. Our bathrooms don't mask previous user's body odeurs with pot-pourri. That said, there's no need to mistake "old" for "dirty". If you carry that disposition, please consider paying double our price, for a boutique hostel. Paying double, you prolly won't even miss our large-smiled-traveler-crew ;-). Enjoy the city! ... more   less
