A traveler's home

A home for travelers. The idea of Café Hostel was born when Rogério and César, two friends who, together, have traveled five continents, decided to create a space for travelers in their favorite part of São Paulo, inspired by the best hostels they had seen throughout their travels. Café Hostel provides you with everything a traveler needs: superb location in Vila Madalena neighbourhood, bright rooms with XL-beds, a fully equipped common kitchen, cozy common areas and a café/bar that bring together travelers and locals.

  • Super friendly staff, located in an excellent part of São Paulo (safe neighbourhood) with good nightlife a 15 minute walk from the hostel! Netflix facilities are awesome to chill out with, and a good communal area to meet people! Good bar area! The beds are bigger than normal as well and for someone 1.89m it was very comfortable! What makes this place though is the staff!! (England, Male, 25-30 - Hostelworld)
  • The hostel is greatly located in Vila Madalena, only a short walk from amazing graffiti and murals as well as bars and restaurants, close to metro. Beautiful breakfast with an even better staff! I stayed 6 nights, but could've easily stayed much longer! Thanks for the hospitality and helpfulness! (Annie, TripAdvisor)
