There are several ways to come from the International Airport. The easiest but more expensive is by taxi. Just outside the exit gate you’ll see the Taxi Booth. Tell them our address and you’ll pay a fixed rate at the booth. Should be around 120 Reais.
Another option is an executive bus called “Airport Bus Service”. You can take this one to Paulista Ave. / Maksoud Hotel. It costs 42 Reais. When you get off the bus, turn right and walk straight for 3 blocks. Turn left on Carlos Sampaio, walk down until the end and turn right on Treze de Maio. The hostel will be right in the middle of the block.
Important: The first bus departs at 6am and the last one at 11pm. If you’re arriving past that time, you can take the bus to Praça da República at mid-night, 1:30am, 3am or 4:30am. From there, take a taxi to the hostel.
Tip: Some guests told us that drivers have been dropping them off at LimeTime after Maksoud Hotel. Let them know you’re coming here and you might get lucky. Tip the driver if you will.
Cheaper than that you can take the small version of that bus that goes to the Tatuapé Metro Station (Red Line). Take the train towards “Barra Funda” and change to the blue line on “Sé”. Then take the train towards “Jabaquara” and get off at “Vergueiro”. It’s 8 stops away. Take the “Joao Julião” exit, the one to the left. Walk up that street (over the bridge) and turn right on Treze de Maio. The hostel will be right in the middle of the block, across the street.
