Soft Oppening from June 29th to July 14th. Great deals.

In the intensity of Sao Paulo, we have made a hostel that embodies the things we value: Design.Sustainability. Authenticity.

Our in-house architect has reinvented a classic 1930s Sao Paulo house with sustainable building practices, salvage materials and a bit of classy DIY. Our intimate bar, shared kitchen, and congenial open spaces are available to those staying in our six shared and two private rooms.

We have dorm-style rooms varieing from 4 to 11 beds, an all girls ensuite dorm room, and two private rooms with queen beds and contemporary bathrooms. All standard rooms have a sink. Each bed has an individual power socket, reading light, and locker.

Located on a quiet street off of Av. Faria Lima. We sit just blocks from the galleries and boutiques of Vila Madalena, and the countless restaurants of Pinheiros. With Faria Lima Metro only 600m away, you can be at Paulista or Liberdade in less than a half hour.

FOOD AND DRINKS
Our gourmet food, including complimentary breakfast and delicious ready-made meals, is provided by Cae Atelie de Cozinha. Our bar serves natural smoothies, cold beer, and mandatory caipirinhas.
If you love to cook, head to the nearby market and prepare yourself a meal in our fully equipped professional kitchen.
