OMG I'm going to São Paulo.
And I have to figure out a place to stay!
But where oh where do I go in this biggest city on the southern hemisphere?? Which place has it all, the best info, the largest beds, the naughtiest nights, the grooviest backpackers, the safest, most central location, the closest metro access, the chillestest hang-out?
What is thy verdict, oh great and all-powerful Hostelworld.com, seeker and finder of true hostels in the world. Thy know-er of best. Thy see-er of all. Thy hear-er of most but not everything.
What say-est thee after my *click*…?
YYAAAAYY give it up for 3Dogs hostel ! :-D

3Dogs recommendations to do:
Share a large bottle of beer with our Brazilian residents: students and young urban professionals. Get them drunk enough to show you Sao paulo at day or night. Some of them are crazy enough to do it without alcoholic inebriation. Hang out in the Ibirapuera park, 20 min walk, buy ice lolly on the way. Check out various exhibits of contemporary art, oldskool art, street art or photography in the park or at Avenida Paulista, or in the metro stations, or in the museum in the park, or just in the park, or just right there in the street, or or or in the street in the museum or or in the street photography that is in a museum. Unreal! Jump of joy over our daily updated tip&trick board for special insiders tips that we´re not gonna give away just here out in the open, like.
See you soon!
