From day one, you are part of a family that became a family when they arrived. Great, fun ambient. The neighborhood is really quite and central, easy to reach the metro and Av. Paulista. I strongly recommend the hostel and would be happy to return one day :)

Minha experiência foi boa.

O hostel foi um hostel incrível, onde pude conhecer pessoas incríveis, desde staffs a hóspedes. O time de staffs do mês foi muito alto astral que levava um pouco de diversão para aqueles que se hospedavam. Bem localizado na vila mariana, onde me permitiu ter acesso fácil a grande parte dos pontos turísticos da grande São o hostel. Recomendo.

Minha permanência neste hostel foram de 3 dias, e após, recebi um recado da gerência de encerramento das atividades. Motivo: FALTA DE ADAPTAÇÃO. Sim, apenas 3 dias após. Logo, minha experiência é sobre esse período. Machismo, homofobia, transfobia, agressão física e psicológica à uma voluntária, falta de respeito com os hóspedes e voluntários, ponto de venda de droga; chuveiros sem água quente; quartos insalubres; ambiente sujo e divergente das fotos. Quando questionado ao responsável (Tonini) ele apenas responde no whatps com "Nossa", e nada é resolvido. SUGIRO QUE NÃO APLIQUE. AVISEI!
