So many fantastic things about this hostel. First, location is prime. From the bus terminal, I just took the metra about 15minutes and walked through safe streets to get to the hostel. Second, very clean and well kept. Third, Julie the receptionist today goes above and beyond accomodating the guests. She helped one of the guests to arrange for a...

The location is great, close to some nice bars and just a few blocks away from the subway. Open 24h, so if you go out and come back in the middle of the night you don`t have to wait for someone to open the door for you. Also, they have beer!

So this is the place that could include a perfect stay! It has a very homely feel to it, relaxed vibe and helpful staff. However, when we moved into our 6 bed dorm we were the only people in the room. Then at 10pm another couple arrived. Okay, 10pm isn't too late. Then at 1am another couple arrived. It is...

We immensly enjoyed our stay at Uvaia in Sao Paulo! Our dorm was spacious and very well thought through: every bed is equipped with a little bedside table, a plug and a reading light and the beds are very comfortable. The hostel in general is really clean, has a cool bohemian vibe and is located in a very nice and...

The hostel Itself is fine. It's clean, safe and comfortable. Being located close to Ibirapuera park is fantastic, I visited the park daily. You are also quite close to a metro, making getting around really easy. This hostels greatest strength I thought was the extremely friendly staff. I am otherwise a shy traveller, but the staff here was friendly, knowledgeable...
