Laranja Mecânica Hostel & Pousada Reviews



Two houses - one just in front of the other - one hostel. Unique in its style, Laranja Mecânica Hostel & Pousada BH matches your trip! Ideal for those who are looking for an affordable, safe, well located, cool and comfortable place to stay in Belo Horizonte, the hostel also provides opportunities to meet people from different countries and cultures. The decoration is based on the book and film A Clockwork Orange, creating an original and irreverent hostel!

HOSTEL 1: Cradle of Laranja Mecânica Hostel & Pousada, this house, built in the 1970s and owned by a renowned decorator and a Belo Horizonte-born architect, keeps its original style that, combining to the décor, reinforces the special atmosphere of the hostel!

HOSTEL 2: The contrast between the building's original architectural project - protected by Minas Gerais' Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute - and the interior of the house recently renovated draws guests attention and gives more intensity to their backpacking experience.

All this in a city that, besides of being well-known as "bars and pubs national capital", is also an important cultural, academic and economic center in the country, attracting tourists, students and professionals from a variety of places.

Here you can find lots of culture and leisure options, such as Palácio das Artes, Praça da Liberdade Cultural Circuit, Pampulha Architectural Complex, Mineirão Stadium and Mercado Central.
