Paid extra for the leito option/ free drink/ private bathroom and entertainment - the seats were bigger and comfortable however no free drink or entertainment and there was just one toilet onboard everyone was using! Not happy for paying a lot extra and did not receive. The light above my head did not work either so was unable to read my book.
The bus broke down at 1030pm and all passengers were left to sit on the bus at a gas station for 5 hours without anyone explaining anything to us. I had paid extra for this bus to have a more comfortable seat and to arrive at Foz do Iguaçu early enough to enjoy my day. A second bus that was already full of passengers arrived and we were made to move our bags to that bus and wake people up to share seats. We arrived more than 5 hours late to our destination with absolutely no compensation.
I was charged 290reals on 2 occasions for a ticket to iquacu because I missed my transfer in São Paulo following my bus arriving 2.5 hours late in São Paulo. This resulted in me and my friends having to find a place to stay in São Paulo. I did try and exchange my ticket as well and I was inside of the window with which this was allowed but this request was denied for an unknown reason. Following this I was fined a further 45reals for missing the first bus even though it was completely out of my control. The man in the ticket office was very unhelpful as well.
Got the bottom floor, was very spacious. With an overnight bus that started at 9pm from Sao Paulo and arrived at 4pm Foz De Iguacu, went well, stopped many times for bathroom, 1 time for a 20 minute mid morning food break. AC worked well, had a few snacks on board. Pillow and blanket provided. Bathroom on board worked well, just needed to bring your own toilet paper. Overall good experience.
