I really like very much my stayed at this hostel: close to all the bars in Vila Madalena, cheap, clean (I really don't have any appointment to say about that) and nice.

We stayed there for two nights and were happy to be able to park our car inside the area without surcharge. The staff is ok. it they don't do too much.... in general it's not a hostel for socializing. When it gets cold outside there is no space where you can feel comfortable, you just can go into your dorm...

I loved the Sampa hostel - it was just what I was looking for. I booked an ensuite private room for three nights. Check-in was great, very friendly and welcoming. My room was large and comfortable with the only caveat being that it was a little cold (but there were blankets) and I had to pull the bed out to...

Luckily I was in Sampa Hostel just for a night. I could not have my shower because the bathroom was very dirty. The pillow was spotted of I don't know what. The breakfast was included but was a very poor breakfast. They have a chicken where you can cook. You have to adapt to stay in it.

We stayed here early August. Stayed in a 4 bed room, with good size lockers which could fit your whole backpack if needed. Bathrooms were okay, only the outside bathroom seemed to have hot water for a shower. Breakfast was pretty standard compared to other hostels. Location was good with lots of bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk....
