I don't think they can have the name of pousada, no space in the room and at the breakfast, the owner didn't want to take the credit card even for several hundred's euros (there are Visa panels everywhere in the poussada)... But when I begin to make a paypal (not enough cash), as we did for the deposit, on his... More

My wife and I booked this hotel for 2 nights about 10 months in advance for the World Cup. Positive: The hotel location is great. It's in Barra which is one of the major tourist areas in Salvador. It's 2 blocks from the beach. Negatives: 1) They overcharged my credit card months in advance (3 nights instead of 2). It... More

Were it an ordinary backpackers with respective rates you possibly couldn´t complain too much, but it isn´t. Here we go: Room tacky and rather dirty, room service managed to change bedsheets, but that was about it. Bathroom in bad repair, though the basics were working (a plugged sink was repaired by late afternoon). Poor painting job. On the other hand,... More

I really can't understand why this pousada has such a high rate here, it doesn't worth it's price at all. I was completely dissapointed. Rooms are very small, not comfortable, no windows, bed is awful, everything is VERY DIRTY, really bad smell from the wardrobe, wifi doesn't work in rooms, staff does not speak english but only one guy. But... More

I ended up having back aches for a week because of the horrible beds in this place. Other than that, everything else was fine, very clean, helpful staff and adequate breakfast. A word of warning: if you choose to take the airport taxi that the hotel provides (a great price of 70R) be ready for a hair raising ride in... More

This pousada came highly recommended from Lonely Planet, which is usually spot-on. This is the first time they've steered me wrong. The room was small and dirty - sheets were threadbare and torn and the mattress sagged horribly. No hot water in the shower. Wi-fi wasn't working. Flies crawling on the breakfast. Thin curtains on the windows and thinner walls... More

The place is located in a very good area of Salvador, close to Farol da Barra and many restaurants, shopping center, and easy access to transportation. The staff is very helpful and nice. If you're just looking for a nice place to rest after walking around Salvador this is the place to stay.

Location: Situated in the quarter Barra, inh to small blocks from the beach. There are some restaurants and bars close to the pousada, the quarter felt save to walk around even late in the evening. By taxi it takes 10 min. (15 R$) to Rio Vermelho and 15 min (20 R$) to Pelourinho. The pousada: The rooms are very simple... More

Locationwise, this inn couldn't be better--it's very close to the Farol da Barra beach (beautiful, calm waters), but not so close to the crowded, often busy Porto da Barra beach (a bit further north, towards the lovely neighbourhood of Graça). The inn is just blocks away from bus stops, a big shopping mall (in case you fancy it), various convenience... More
