I recently found myself in the same situation; judging from the internet and written resources, there seems to be very little cheap accomodation in SP.
As I got there, I found out that it isn't so bad. Cheap hotels abound near Paraíso subway station; I found one in less than five minutes. In case you arrive by bus: the Tiete tourist office (the ONLY one in town, go figure) has a list of addresses.
Here are a couple of addresses:
HI Sampa Hostel
Rua Girassol, 519 - Vila Madalena
HI Hostel Praça da Arvore
Rua Pageú, 266 - Vila Mariana
In terms of location, i think that Sampa hostel is better.
