Accommodation in São Paulo

Useful Tips:

Great areas for social life and student prices is Butantã, Vila Madalena and Pinheiros. Vila Madalena is more expensive than Butantã but it is a really lively area with lots of bars and restaurants. Pinheiros/Vila Madalena are two great places to live but Butantã is a good option if you are studying at USP. Perhaps you want to live closer to the centre, check out Avenida Paulista and surrounding areas.
