We stayed for two nights at this hostel and found the people to be very nice and helpful. Location near the metro station was easy to get to, although the double room was a little tight and the bed a little shaky.

Its the first time i am writing a review on a hostel on my whole trip, because usually i am too lazy to do it after i have left already, but this time i had to do it to let other people know what a lovely place the hostel uvaia in sao paulo is!
The place offers you everything you possibly could imagine of to have a great stay in sao paulo. Its easy to get there because its close to a metro station. Its located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. Supermarkets and some bars are really close in walking distance. The famous park of sao paulo, ibiapuear, where you can run, cycle (with the bike the hostel rents), walk, relax, aso is also just a 10 minute walk away. All other parts of sao paulo are easy to reach by metro without changing lines. If you prefer to travel around by taxi: Good for you, because there is a taxi stand right next to the hostel. So, the location is already fantastic, its get even better when you enter the place. There is a very, very cosy communal area, with sofas, big tv, movies, even an x-box with the newest games if you are up to it, wifi, computers to usw, a fully equipped kitchen, a bar (very relaxed one, so no noise!) and a outdoor area where you also can sit and relax. The hostel is clean and the rooms are really nice (6 bed dorms). The showers are hot and the bathrooms always super clean. The included breakfast is also great, you get homemade jam and other goodies. The owner, gustavo, and his team are doing a fantastic job to help the guests with everything they need and are super friendly. Its a fantastic place to stay and meet other people, travelers as well as locals because gustavos friends often show up to mix with the guest and having a good time together. I loved to stay at this place and can t find anything bad about it!

I just stayed there for a night but came twice again to meet some friends there and I totally loved it ! It is the best hostel I ever stayed in. First of all I really liked the neighborhood..one of the nicest in Sao Paulo in my opínion and I really loved the atmosphere!
There is really nothing that I could complain about and if I come back to Sao Paulo, which I will do for sure, I will come back to Uvaia. I made some memories there which I will never forget and I cannot wait to add more when I stay again.

Stayed for a night in a 6 bed dorm. We arrived v. Early off an overnight bus and the staff had no problem letting us chill around the hostel until check in, and even went out of their way to check us in early. The place has a warm cosy feel and is in a safe area with friendly staff.

Well located hostel near to the main park and metro station. Hostel was on the whole clean and seemed secure with good lockers in all of the rooms. Breakfast was ok and the staff were very helpful and told us where to go during the day.
Would be good if there was more than one twin room however as most rooms are dorms.

I"ve been to other hostels in Sao Paulo, but Uvaia is simple THE BEST.
Amazing staff, great location, very comfortable rooms, fun bar and events.
the hostel is really clean, has safe lockers, and a 24 hours open bar with really good snacks and sandwiches.
the atmosphere is young, and the artsy vibe is definitely a plus.
highly recommended.

Room Tip: private room is perfect
