“Good Value”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Stayed here during our trip through Brasil. Nothing fancy but good value and nice neighborhood although a long walk to the metro. This is a reflection more on the size of Sao Paulo than the Dos Franceses. Staff is helpful but room was small. It worked for us as we were just passing through. Breakfast included will fill you up. Functional choice.

Pousada dos Franceses is in a safe location in Sao Paulo, a short walk from Brigadeiro station and Paulista Av. There's a number of great bars and Italian restaurants, not to mention a deli/bakery nearby as well.
The pousada staff are knowledgeable and helpful and while we were there they ran a homemade soup night which was great. There's some great lounge areas and the rooms and bathrooms are tidy, with some particularly nice sheets.
Really enjoyed our stay.

This is a fantastic option for anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Sao Paulo. Its a massive city, so its nice to find somewhere which is so friendly with helpful staff who are going to help you to find your way around and do what you want to do. When I was there there was a mix between foreigners and Brazilians. This meant there was always someone interesting to hang out with, going out on the weekend or attending the Wednesday BBQ in the hostel. The place is extremely well organised and clean. Its a welcome break from some other hostels in South America with facilities that are not on this level. There is a dorm and private rooms. Its in a great location because its close to both Paulista and Augusta nightlife, and its a really safe area.

Room Tip: Dorms are good... private rooms are better if you can afford it.

The title might seem little bit assertive and pretentious, but if you stay there you will understand better, I am from Turkey and ı went there with a mate ,we stayed there for 10 days, the daily rate of the hotel is really great if you consider the location and the facilities of the place. People are amazingly friendly and helpful, i forgot the name of TIA ( aunt) right now, she is adorable, the maid lady takes care of the place very well, we stayed in various hostels and hotels in brazil, ı cant definitely tell that pousada dos franceses was the cleanest place for sure, ı would like to thank them again to provide a great stay for us, As for you,readers, if you are going to SP, go ,stay there,you will not regret! Tchauu

This pousada is actually more of an upgraded hostel. The location is not bad, about 10 minutes walk from the Avenida Paulista (about 15 minutes from the closest metro station). It's located in a quiet and safe residential area. From the balcony you get a great view over Sao Paulo.

For Sao Paulo it's a very good budget choice. Cities in Brazil aren't cheap anyway. The pousada is a mix between a hostel and a hotel. It also has a laundry room for example. We had a double room, which was OK. It was in the middle of the hostel, but that didn't bother. Shared bathroom was clean.

Breakfast was good with lots of choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Conclusion: Ok if you're on a budget. Don't expect any luxury, but if you're happy with some basic comfort, this could well be a place for you to stay.
