Excellent experience! from the beginning I felt at home, everyone with a lot of patience explained the tasks to me and gave me the confidence to face any challenge in the hostel since I am learning to speak Portuguese, without a doubt they are a good team and I would be sharing again with they. thank you very much HBB HOSTEL

I've always loved Vila Madalena and HBB is located just a few meters from the best parties and restaurants. The Hostel will make you fall in love with Gastronomy and making new friends. For the last three months it was an awesome experience which I could enjoy as harder as I could and I'm already missing... See you soon guys!
