We stayed in a private room in Galleria 13 in mid December, and it was fantastic! The room was clean and spacious, the breakfast was incredible and the staff were so friendly and very helpful! Happy hour really created the social environment we look for in a hostel, and gave us the opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Having Spartan and... More

I stayed in this hostel for five nights, and I can honestly say that I had a great time -Friendly staff, amazing breakfast, awesome location and of course - Caipirinha hour is the best idea ever! If you are looking for a fair priced hostel with great environment (Miss you - Spartan and Zulu) this is the hostel for you!

Very organized hostel where you can meet people and explore the area and exchange experience with people you meet there. I believe traveling and hostels are all about that.

I stayed at Galeria 13 on 3 separate occasions recently. I can't speak highly enough of Paulo, his staff and his hostel. Happy hour with free caiprihinas brings everyone together in the early evening.

Cozy hostel in pelourinho with homemade guidebooks, a couch&cushion laze spot, two great guard dogs, a huge half-day breaky, free happy hour caipirinhas, a 10R walking tour, hammock in our room, small swimming pool, wood picnic table with beach umbrella, good security (needed for the neighborhood), and a tab system for drinks from the cooler. Amazing!

The staff was very helpful, the breakfast until noon was great. We had a double room with private bathroom: it was very clean and spacious. The free capirinhas is the best moment to meet the other travellers and exchange tips: we met a lot of friends there. The dogs Spartan and Zulu are lovely too! The Zulu Bar is also... More

amazing breakfast (scrambled eggs, fruit, cake) and good location. the free caipirinha hour is awesome as you meet a lot of people. the staff is good, but rules are a bit strict sometimes. the zulu bar offers good food as well
