We've been travelling nearly 6 months and this is the best hostel we've stayed at. We arrived very early after a 24 hour bus trip from Brazilia. The lovely staff immediately welcomed us and we were given an excellent breakfast, with scrambled eggs (all free and all before check in). I couldn't believe it, but it's all part of the... More

Simply one of the best hostels in Brazil. Very clean, friendly staff and good atmosphere. Breakfast is served until 12 pm and is really good. Everyone meets at the Free-Caipinrinha Happy Hour between 17 and 18 pm.

This is a wonderful hostel - buzzy yet relaxed, really helpful and friendly staff, clean and comfy with a pool and chill-out lounge...and so much more. There are helpful tips and lists of places to go and things to do and the daily caiparinha hour is an inspired way to meet fellow travellers and sample the national drink. The owner,... More

My wife and I are over sixty. During our stay, we met people having half of our age and therefore we have retrieved our student soul. It was very interesting, some people did not hesitate to speak with us despite the difference of age and to share with us their travel experience. I liked very much.

My second visit here, last year in the dorm and this year in Maputo, the private en suite. Though 4 times pricier than the dorm, but spacious and can accommodate 4 people without feeling cluttered. Each particular space is cleaned and sanitized thoroughly everyday. Apart from the continental breakfast with freshly cooked scrambled egg and sausages are served by lovely... More

Have just come back after spending only 1 night in Galeria. I´m not normally the hostel person but my daughter wanted to desperately stay here and I can only say it was fantastic! We had a lovely huge clean private room and as we arrived the free Caipi Happy Hour was just in full swing with loads of great and... More

This hostel is a great place! Our room São Tomé was huge, beautifully decorated and with 2 big windows facing the street. There was AC and fans, everything was exquisitely clean, and the staff made efforts to make it feel safe. Paulo is chatty, friendly and has many interesting stories to share, as well many tips. The rest of the... More

Pelourinho is all cobble stone streets so walking around will be the same everywhere: difficult. The hostel is well situated in a quiet area at night. Since my last visit in Salvador I believe the government has done much for safety. The streets were well lit and there were cops at every corner: amazing. The hostel is split in 2... More

I had a great time staying here. The hostel is very clean with a great breakfast and extremely sociable. Free cocktail hour is a great chance to get to know people and made a solo traveller like myself feel very welcome. There is a good source of info from both hostel staff and the information booklets that have been produced.... More
