“Highly recommended stay in Sao Paulo”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Highly recommended hostel in SP. Good and clean hostel in a good location. Quiet area but close to the Metro and walking distance to the main streets of SP. The staff working at the hostel actually own it, so its more personalised and homely. WINNER!

Here's all you need to know about Aquarela: my reservation was only for 4 days, I liked it so much I decided to stay for 8 days. For starters, it's in a safe, secure location, a short walk to a metro station. The rooms are big and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need, and they've got a great cleaning lady. Every hostel should be this clean. But what sets this place apart is its people. The co-owners, Gabriela and Daniela, and their staff, Júlia, Myrtle, Carol, Leo (apologies to anyone I'm forgetting) were awesome. They were all very warm, friendly, eager to help, and made me feel not like a customer, but like a new friend. Many, many great conversations and all in English, which made communication a lot easier. I look forward to staying in Aquarela again. Definitely recommended.

Looking for the best place to stay in Sao Paulo?
This is it! The Aquarela SP Hostel!
I had a fantastic time there last august. I've travelled a lot and seen many hostels along the way but i strongly recommend the Aquarela SP Hostel for those of you who equally seek authenticity, comfort and yet affordable prices.
It's the best choice if you want a smart and efficient service, great location and cheap, clean rooms.
You won't forget the warm and joyfull greeting by Gabriela, the enchanting owner of this very well located residential house in the quiet and safe neighborhood near Paraiso subway station.
The flowers and birds in the shady yard up front will help you take a break from the heat and craziness of the city.
You'll meet an interesting mix of international guests, there's a bar and fresh coffee in the morning, hot showers, a pool table, cheap prices...I really found nothing bad to say!
It's been quite a pleasure being a guest in this place!
Obrigado Gabriela and her team for doing such a great job!
See you soon!

I loved staying at Aquarela. From the moment I got there, the staff were very welcoming and open. The hostel is in a really great location, and close to the metro so you can to get to different parts of the central city easily. The lounge and bar are clean, comfortable, great for relaxing and hanging out. The kitchen is well equiped if you want to cook for yourself and there's also a couple of eating spots around if you prefer to eat out.
The room was cosy, very clean and comfortable. Sao paulo has lot going on and Aquarela is a good location to discover everything from, after the craziness of the big city, you can come back to a chilled, relaxed atmosphere with cool people who are always ready to help with whatever you need.
