Right off the bat, the building WE Hostel is housed in is pretty cool – it’s a mansion from the 1910s. Its layout is almost unaltered, but the amenities are all definitely 21st-century. Young architect Felipe Hess and designer Rodrigo Marangoni worked with WE Hostel to get just the right mix of contemporary and vintage. It’s bright, airy, and cozy – so job well done, boys! No wonder WE Hostel Design is one of the most famous Design Hostels!

The rooms at WE Hostel Design follow the concept. They are kept simple, and bright. Comfy mattresses ensure a good night sleep. Besides the mandatory dorm-room, WE Hostel Designs offers a private 5-Bed Suite for women only.

Also, you can choose between a double room,and twin room. The difference between twin room and double room is the type of bed. Check out our article about the different Hostel room types.

The green garden - the design does not end here!

And don’t miss the cool lighting project by Ana Spina, especially the awesome fluorescent tube chandelier in the entryway. Altogether, this Hostel sets a new standard when it comes to combining Contemporary Art with Hosteling.
