I had a great experience working at Garoa *-*
Andrea is a great manager, helps us whenever we need, the staff is great (Hello, Rafa o/) and the neighborhood is exciting with lots of things to do right beside the metro station Faria Lima.

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.
