We stayed at this hostel and found the service to be terrible. The girl at reception was very rude with a constant irritated look on her face and totally not approachable. There are rules for everything and everyone was kicked out of the pool area at 10pm despite being very respectful and just having a good time. The owner forgot... More

Great breakfast buffet until 12am, Happy Hour with delicious Caipirinhas for free, a small pool and nice common areas. You will meet a lot of nice people there! It's an excellent and well managed hostel!

Spent 5 nights here over new year 2014/15. We were four friends staying in a 10 bed dorm. The dorm itself was quite hot at night as the aircon and two fans couldn't seem to cope. And the one bathroom between 10 got a bit busy at times, especially when everyone wanted to head out at the same time. They... More

I just visited Salvador for a couple of days, and I stayed in this hostel, great people that will take care of you, it is clean, and it's a very good location, they have an amazing breakfast and free caipirinhas between 5-6, the price is just perfect.

The staff were extremely friendly and hospitable and took the time to get to know us and even suggest cool local places to eat and drink (Marina was particularly lovely). The happy hour was a great... More

We stayed in a private room at Galleria 13 and was possibly the nicest hostel room I've ever been in. The location is fantastic for exploring Pelhourinho in Salvador and the daily walking city tour offered by the hostel offers is a great introduction to the area. Breakfast was amazing and Capirinha hour was something we looked forward to every... More
