I loved pretty much the location, around 500 meters from the Farol. Every day when me and my friends went out they just cleaned everything and the staff, Caio and Emerson, were more than awesome with us. They helped us a lot. I highly recommend this place!

A member staff, Caio, was very kind and helpfull but the others could be more kind and give attention to the guests. My mother wasn't fine when we arrived (the travel from Morro de Sao Paulo is a bit unconfortable) but the staff only worried about the money I should give before anything. :-\ After Elton John show the night...

Simple but lovely, The Pousada is at a great location in a side street close to the ocean and close to a bus stop. The rooms are clean and simple but we did not spend a lot of time inside in any case. The Wi-Fi worked great. The staff was very friendly and helpful and Alejandra, who worked there most... More

Just in the centre of Barra this pousada offers a nice and convenient location to visit Salvador and surroundings. It is very clean and one of the receptionist (Apuana) is very friendly and helpful. I can’t say the same of the others. Wonderful breakfast! The room at first floor are nice, even though too small.

I stayed nine days at Papaya Verde and never got tired of the location or the staff. As a solo female traveler, I never felt unsafe. My room was cozy and always clean. The shower worked well and the internet incredible. I loved the quite location, lovely garden and the shaded balcony with comfy hammocks. There were plenty of restaurants,... More

Very nice place, nice location, very friendly and helpful staff (but some are hard to communicate with in portuguese). Safe to move around in the area, even at night. Breakfast was the best of all the pousadas we did in Brasil, missed it all through the rest of the trip.... One point that could be better, bathroom in the room... More

We came to Salvador to visit a friend, and booked several rooms at Papaya Verde upon his suggestion - we're so thankful that he discovered this little slice of paradise! Quaint little B&B with charming colors and decorations. The rooms are small, bathrooms even smaller... but who needs much time in the room when there's so much to see &... More

We arrived late on a wet night to be met by a warm welcome. This pousada is a friendly unpretentious place in Barra neighbourhood. Breakfast is legendary and with reason as the cook outdoes everyone else with lots of freshly baked cakes and wonderful fresh fruit. Good coffee and a selection of teas as well as cheeses and ham are... More

Papaya Verde is a great little inn, close to the ocean and nice restaurants in Barra. As previous reviewers already stated, the place is a gem. The rooms are simple, but very clean and comfortable, the breakfast is really good and the staff is very courteous and helpful. I recommend this pousada to anyone that is looking for a good... More
