We've travelled south America for 4 months and this is one of the best. - The breakfast is the best weve had. With fresh juices, fruit and made to order eggs/sausages. - The staff all say hello by name after 2 days. - their knowledge of the city is great - the location is bang in the middle of the... More

this place is the best. the layout practically makes you, make friends. free caipirinha hour helps. if you’re a bit more introverted & need some R&R time the morrocan room is perfect for it. So chill. Loved it.

Paulo, the hostels owner and operator, definitely knows how to run a fun and clean spot. The included breakfast was filling enough that we didn't have to spend on a big lunch (usually no lunch at all), and the homey pool area was a good place to eat, prepare for the day, and get to know other travelers. The staff... More

Absolutely recommendable. Our plan was to stay in Galeria 13 for just a couple of days but we ended up staying there for more than two weeks. The place is perfectly located in the old historical city of Pelorinho. Everyday you have breakfast served until midday and free "caipirinha hour" around the pool when the sun goes down. The place...

The hostel is very well located, and at the reception they speak portuguese, spanish and english (at least). The rooms are clean and nice and they have air conditioning and fans. It can get a little noisy by night, but not enough so that you cannot sleep. The breakfast was really good, but there is no dedicated area for eating... More

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!
