Can anyone recommend a hotel/hostel in Sao Paulo that is safe and convenient to bus terminal? - I am travelling alone and will be there for only a couple of days, and hope to meet some fellow travellers there.

I was wondering if anybody already found something. I will arive from Europe in the evening and am not planning to stay very long in Sao Paulo. I don't think the city will be that nice. However, I do not feel very comfirtable looking for the bus terminal at night and travel the night to my next stop.

Thnx for your replies! ;)

According to the locals, the area around Tiete bus terminal has serious safety issues, so you may be better off having a plan in advance, even though I didn't really notice anything that made me feel particularly uncomfortable.

Was staying with a colleague when I was there, but I heard good stories about the HI hostel 'Praça da Arvore'. Reportedly it's close to the terminal, nice, and safe.
