Very good 8,0
Very basic but expect nothing other than somewhere to rest yourself at night! The whole place could do with a tidy up but I have stayed in far worse and paid a lot more. The staff were a credit to the establishment, very friendly & helpful, much knowledge of the local area. This is a rough neighbourhood as one would expect of downtown SP so be prepared! I would recommend and stay at Balcony Hostel again.

O hotel está localizado em área com fácil acesso a diversos lugares como centro, 25 de março, Bom Retiro, mas também fica perto da Cracolândia. O atendimento é excelente e a acomodação é simples.

Péssimo pra quem vai de carro , não tinha cobertores no quarto , no entorno do hotel rola de tudo , desde banheiro a céu aberto até programas entre os nóias que vivem por lá.

Excelente custo benefício.
O Hotel oferece o mínimo necessário para uma boa estadia, é limpo, ambiente agradável, atendimento excelente, ótima localidade. Para um Hostel superou as minhas expectativas. Todos os quartos tem banheiros então é uma ótima opção para ir de grupo, eu fiquei em um quarto duplo com minha acompanhante, tive total privacidade. É possível preparar seu lanche na área comum do refeitório ajudando muito quem quer economizar com alimentação. Me senti em casa de família. Possui excelente conexão Wi-fi. Não possui ar condicionado mas também não senti falta. A acessibilidade não é boa por causa da escada para a recepção, portanto, não é uma boa opção para cadeirantes. Localizado literalmente ao lado da estação Luz é possível ir à 25 de Março e Santa Ifigênia à pé. Eu fui ao Brás à pé também mas o ideal é ir de metrô pois já é um pouco mais distante.

Tive problemas, precisei levar minha maquiadora e meu treinador que iriam ficar me pintando das 9 da manha a meio dia, pis sou atleta de fisiculturismo. E NÃAO deixaram eles entrarem no meu quarto que eu PAGUEI para estar lá, tivemos que fazer a pintura na recepção. Não gostei e não recomendo.

Gostamos
Passamos dois dias no hotel, gostamos. Apenas com uma ressalva, os hóspedes fumam na cozinha. Também o rapaz que fica no período noturno é meio fechadão, não te oferece as informações necessárias. A área tem muito morador de rua, porém bastante policiada. No geral vale muito a pena.
