To see São Paulo on a shoestring budget and mingle with other travelers, consider staying at a hostel on the edge of Jardins. Located in a modern, colorful house on Avenida Rebouças near Rua Oscar Freire, the hostel is within walking distance of Avenida Paulista, the hip boutiques and fun nightlife of Vila Madalena, and the fine restaurants and elegant shops of upscale Jardins. Okupe Hostel Jardins offers private rooms with a shared or private bathroom, as well as dorm rooms with four or more beds that are perfect for a group of friends. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Start the day with a free breakfast, or cook your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen. You can swap sightseeing tips with other travelers in the bar or TV lounge, hang out lazily in a hammock, or play a round of pool. Best of all, you'll save money that you can use to explore São Paulo.
