Garoa Hostel

At Garoa Hostel you'll feel at home. Our location is amazing for those who want to experience the Brazilian culture in São Paulo, close to the subway, cultural centers, bars and places that play samba and forró. We have 6 rooms that can host up to 36 people. We have are many communal areas such as a garden with a bar, a living room with TV, comfy sofas and a selection of books, a game room with a pool table, a private winter garden and a front garden open to the public.

Garoa was created by a group of friends who believe hostels are a great way to propmote cultural and social exchange and interaction. Our staff works as a team and everybody is treated with respect and consideration, and we are open to suggestions and constructive criticism!.

I love this hotel and all the staff. Daniel and Andrea makes me feel like home. Sometimes he had party with good music, good drinks and food for the guests. Already I miss the Garoa hostel !!

Recomendo para viajantes mais sérios. Se esta procurando por um lugar para se sentir a vontade não seria o lugar mais apropriado. Por ser um hostel e também um bar, tem regras específicas que podem ser consideradas inconvenientes para algumas pessoas.

Foi uma boa estadia para mim, com alguns pontos altos e outros nem tanto.

Recomendo para alguém que seja mais tranquilo e não goste tanto de festas.
Recomendo também se conhecer gringos não for prioridade.

Nice people to work with, easy going atmosfere and a wonderful place to chill out. Work time was flexible so I've managed to do other things whilst working there.
