I stayed at Sampa first week of November. The location is great and the hostel is really comfortable and clean with a great breakfast. I stayed in a private room which was fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of Gonçalo who can communicate in several languages, is a great conversationalist and knows the bests spots to go out at night....

The hostel rooms are clean, prices reasonable and the internet is AWESOME. Exactly what you want in a place to stay! Gonçalo is extremely helpful with activity and restaurant suggestions. Plus the neighborhood is safe and pretty (which is saying something for Sao Paulo!). I absolutely recommend this hostel!

Was in Sampa Hostel in 2011 in December. Excelent service, very clean (just as I like hostels to be).

This was the most friendly hostel during our trip in South America.The room was comfortable, the breakfast was great and there was much much beer & caipirinha at night. Obrigado, Gonçalo:) and the district is the best in the city - clubs, bars, shopping, but not as crowded as in the center.

I quite literally stumbled upon the hostel after (perhaps unwisely) deciding to wing it as far as accommodation plans on arrival in SP but boy was I glad I did. The location is tops and the staff are super-friendly and only too happy to share their knowledge of all the city has to offer. The dorms are modest but scrupulously...
