I cant understand why this is the first rating mentioning bedbugs, because there were a lot of them. We stayed in the 14-bedroom and after 15 minutes there were more than 10 of them in each of our beds. Positive point of the hostel is the safe location, which made it not so dangerous for us to change the hostel... More

After making a reservation on hostelbookers and a 8 hour bus ride, I arrived at escambo at 9pm to find that they overbooked and had no bed for me. The staff did their best to help me find another room but everything was full and had to stay far out of the area. If they had given notice I would... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in their private room. Room is well equipped and nice but the description on booking.com mentions "soundproofing", which really is a joke, sleeping was a bit hard first night when much traffic noise got in from the street. Also if you sleep in the upper double bed, you have lights from the street right... More

Had booked a private double room with this hostel, for a night’s stay. While it may be the rule of the hostel, what I did find a bit too much was that we were made to wait till 1pm for check-in although the room was available and ready. The room was fine but the beds (two twin beds, almost futons,... More

I chose to stay there during the World Cup, i don't regret it even one bit. Amazing Staff, friendly people and made wonderful friends there. I stayed there on two occasions and was happy both the times. The bar is pretty good for craft beers if you are into that sort of thing. Pretty close to prime location such as... More

The hostel is located in the safest area of SP, two blocks away from Paulista, a 15 min walk to Ibirapuera. Nice breakfast. Probably the most friendly staff in Brazil! Clean, safe(!), in a clean area!
