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

I had a awesome time there. The staff is so hepful. Delicious breakfast and amazing dogs around the house. The free caipirinhas at night are a plus. Would definitely stay there again. Best hostel in Salvador for sure.

I loved the breakfast until 12h. Location is good because it's in the main historical district but still on a quiet street, so you can actually sleep. Rooms are quiet and dark enough to sleep well, without feeling closed and stuffy. I actually left, though, because the air conditioning in the room was SO loud. Apparently it was repaired the...

This place is amazing. This was my first point of call for my trip to Brasil for the world cup. I didnt have enough money to pay the taxi upon my 1am arrival so the hostel lent it to me as no atms in the area were working. I paid them the next day and all good. Room are fine... More

I totally recommend it. We stayed in a private double room twice during our trip in Brazil: Maputo and Cabo Verde (the rooms are named after different cities and countries). They were both excellent, especially Maputo. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they speak some different languages, which helps a lot. Albert was our favourite, but Ceci and... More

Location was good, the hostel was a bit small but cosy. The staff was OK but they did not make you feel very welcome. The free caparinas were good and the vibe in the hostel was nice. The con's: There was a lack of normal facilities like soap in the toilet to wash your hands. No ladder to climb to... More

Pros +very good breakfast, until noon +free drinks from 5 to 6 +good for meeting people +well managed place +safe Con's -Double room is totally overpriced (180R), not worth the premium. Better to stay to the hostel at the beginning of the street (130R for a better room). I think the dorms are better value for money (40R) -very small... More

I really liked staying in Galeria 13! The location is excellent, because it's right in the centre of Pelourinho, the historic part of Salvador. The guys at the reception informed us veeery well about where to go, what to do and everything else we needed to know. You don't have to be afraid about walking around there, they also told... More

I could not believe how good the free Caipirnha hour was! I've stayed in a hostel previously which provided one free Caipirinha per day but at Galeria 13 you literally get as many free Caipirhnas as you can drink in an hour - my best was 4. The breakfast was amazing, the best breakfast I've had in Brazil thus far.... More
