The Space

June and July prices for worl Cup: U$ 120 first person, more U$ 20 for each extra person.
The room availiable have two bunks, so it's for 4 people in the same bedroom (it's a big room!). The apartment is big enought and in a good and familiar street. The home have two bedrooms (one for me, another for guests), one kitchen, one bathroom and a good living room. It's not a rich place, but I think that's nice and confortable. You can use the washing machine and the kitchen to cook to yourself.
It's in the traditional Bixiga square, it's near the center (15 minutes walking) and near Paulista (15 minutes too). There's some metro lines about 10 minutes walking, and a lot of buses for everywhere.
You can use the kitchen to cook to yourself.
Near here we have a lot of pizzarias, italian restaurants, brasilian tipical food restaurants.
I love to receive people from everywher in my house and I will be glad if the guests feell like home.

  • A cozy place in a wonderful location! Mage was responsive and easy going!

    Recommend the place!

  • 3 of us stayed at Magè's during the world cup. Magè was a great host, very helpful with tips on where to visit and spoke excellent English. She was also very relaxed about us being in the apartment when she was also there. The room was clean and comfortable with 2 bunk beds. The place is located 15 mins from the centre or Paulista which meant we walked or got taxis everywhere (fine for us but others may prefer to be closer to restaurants/bars etc).

    Overall very satisfied and definitely recommend it to others.

  • Magê es una persona muy servicial, con muchos tips sobre la ciudad. El ambiente es muy cálido y el dormitorio contiene muchos folletos de la ciudad para servirte de ayuda. El lugar es limpio y a sólo unas cuadras de la avenida Paulista.

    Nos quedamos 5 días con dos amigos más para la Copa. A pesar que había mucha fiesta por todos lados el lugar era tranquilo para descansar y las veces que llegamos muy tarde de madrugada caminando no tuvimos problema, aunque siempre es mejor no exponerse y tomar un taxi. Cerca hay muchos locales de comida, farmacias y teléfonos.

    Magê hacia tuyo su ambiente y lo comparte dándote todas las facilidades: cocina, agua caliente, servicios de limpieza, lavadora, plancha, y una PC con internet aparte del wifi.

  • Magê was really welcoming and accommodating. I'd decided at the last minute to visit São Paulo and she was able to fit me in...all over the Easter holidays too. I got there in the evening and left in the morning, as I needed to drop stuff at my hotel before going on my jaunt. Anyway, the evening I arrived, we talked for ages on various topics and her English was very good.

    Her flat is as lovely as in the pictures, and I got a good night's sleep with no outside disturbances. The room was such a good size, that I even managed to get some yoga practice in when I woke up - bonus!

    I highly recommend staying at Magê's - nice accomodation, lovely company and a nice location - Ibirapuera Park is beautiful and just down the road, so you've got no excuse!

    Just a thought: If you get off at Brigadeiro station, make sure you take Ave Brigadeiro away from Ibirapuera Park as Brigadeiro extends both sides and it's a long way up the hill if you go the wrong way (as I did!). Otherwise, she's only about 10 mins walk.

  • Por empezar, la casa de Magê es muy cálida y hace que te sientas como en tu propio hogar. Además, está en una zona cerca de Avenida Paulista y el centro histórico, así como de algunas estaciones de subte que te llevan a otros puntos interesantes de la ciudad. Para quienes estén acostumbrados a vivir en zonas céntricas / semicéntricas se acostumbrarán rápido al movimiento del lugar. Magê es de las mejores anfitrionas que conocí, siempre atenta a lo que uno le pedía y accesible por cualquier cosa que se la requiera. Además, es una persona muy relajada y eso lo pone a uno en la misma sintonía. ¡Una gran primer experiencia!

  • We had a very comfortable stay at Magê's place. Enough room and a comfortable bed and mattress for me and a friend and good internet. Avenida Brigadeiro is close by and leads quickly to Paulista, from where you can explore all parts of the city. On the corner to Brigadeiro there is a sandwich store with really nice people and good food that I can recommend. Magê was a very nice host and was very helpful at the checkin and checkout. Unfortunately, I didn't get the change to talk to her a lot, since we were nonstop out exploring and meeting up with friends.

  • My stay at Mage's was very pleasant. The apartment was clean and my room was spacious. Mage was helpful whenever I needed anything although we didn't see much of each other during the day. Due to our schedules, we typically saw each other late in the evenings. The neighborhood is a working class residential area in Bela Vista, conveniently located near the major avenue, Brigadeiro. I found the neighborhood to be safe, with people hanging out in front of their homes, or socializing outside the small barzinhos, til late in the evening.

    From Brigadeiro is a direct 20-minute walk to Avenida Paulista, which runs perpendicular to Brigadeiro. The Brigadeiro Metro station is actually located on Paulista. Be aware that the walk along Brigadeiro to Paulista is on an uphill slant. The walk back is a bit easier. Although on the map, the Sao Joaquim Metro station is closer than the Brigadeiro station, I personally preferred walking to the Brigadeiro station. Av Paulista is just a more interesting place to end up at the end of the walk.

    Within 50 meters of Mage's apartment are several reasonably priced eateries. At the corner of Mage's street that connects with Brigadeiro is a small Japanese restaurant that is opened til 10:30-11pm in the evenings. The sushi there is quite good. A block up Brigadeiro (towards Paulista) is an inexpensive pay-by-the-kilo restaurant. Another block further is an Italian Pizzeria/Restaurant that is slightly pricier, though they have a wider selection and the food quite good.

    Overall, I was happy with my experience and would consider staying at Mage's again in the future. .

  • Mage is a very kind and nice host. The room is basic but has everything you need. The flat is nicely decorated and is located right in the middle between downtown and Paulista. You can easily and safely reach these 2 districts within 15 minutes of walk. Mage gave us nice recommendations for restaurants and bars and was extremely helpful with activating our brazilian mobil number (which is quite hard if you're not Brazilian). Thank you for everything!
