Been in this hostel for the world cup. We paid dearly for one night (US$ 280.00). Rooms cramped and deteriorating decor. The only good thing is the location. The service is bad, the maids opened the door to clean the room, even with the warning, and knocked on the door the whole time. Would not recommend.

Dear Claudio, thank you very much for your comment about our Hotel, even that we are surprised over your review. Unfortunately during the unique World Cup event the prices of Hotels and Pousadas were in all of Brasil much higher than regulary, even though we were still cheaper than others in the same category (unless you were lucky and booked...

..in the central bairro de barra. For this location the prices are reasonable. Love the staff! Since years they stay friendly and always helpful, the main reason why i come back. The pousada is like an island in the city. Beautiful and clean rooms, with all u need. Good breakfast. I love that place, full of charme, feels like home.... More

Stayed during the World Cup. Prices were much higher than normal but not exorbitant given what others were charging for the same time. Stayed in a quadruple room on the ground floor. Fairly spacious in comparison to other quad rooms we had during the trip. Very clean. Shower had warm water (unfortunately the glass door only goes halfway, so we'd... More

Stayed here during the world cup. It is very basic accommodation probably not worth more than $50 a night. Given that it was world cup - I was willing to pay more but definitely not worth $250 per night even factoring in the location in Barra. The bathroom was so small - it is no more than 24-30 inches wide... More

We stayed here during the World Cup, landing the day of a game. thus, prices for all lodging was exhorbitant, and it certainly wasnt worth $300 per night except during this extraordinary time. Since we had three people, parents and a daughter, they provided an extra bed in a small room that was best suited for two or even one... More

The pousada is located on a quiet street in the Barra neighborhood. Our stay was two nights and it would have been longer but they were fully booked in advance and had no further availablity. This is a good budget option when visiting Salvador. Pros: Clean rooms, Good A/C, Quiet, Nearby access to Atlantic and Bay beaches, Tasty, filling breakfast... More

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

Situated in Barra, one of the best areas of Salvador, where you can find some of the nicest beaches of the city. Just a 3-minute walk to the first beach, 5 minutes to the "harbour of Barra" and located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. A tropical garden with exotic flowers and plants and a variety of song birds give you the impression of staying in a green oasis in the heart of Salvador. ... more   less
