Fantastic hostel with friendly staff, Paulo is extremely helpful, great breakfast and fun atmosphere. The rooms are clean and relatively spacious and the hostel even has a pool. I warn you it is very loud at night but that is not so much the hostel but the area itself. I would not let this put you off staying here.

We enjoyed a lot our stay at Galeria 13, we could stay in quiet private rooms and we loved the breakfast that they make! The location is really good as well. We only regret that the smimming pool was not available because of cleaning but appart from that everything was great! See you seen Galeria 13!

I loved Hostel Galeria 13! Its so close to the square in Pelourinho. They have a pool which is really nice to cool off in the morning when its starting to get really hot. Also, they have a free caipirinhia happy hour. The breakfast is outstanding - they have juice, bread, meats, fruit, and they offer everyone eggs and sausage... More

Hostel Galeria 13 is centrally located with excellent proximity to the town centre. The hostel office is located about 200m away from the dorm rooms, which was not an inconvenience at all.

We stayed here over New Year's Eve and were so happy with our decision. We stayed in a private room which was really spacious and cute. It had a great amosphere. The free caipirinhas in the afternoon are really strong! The staff are great and the location is perfect.

Great breakfast, free Caipirinha's daily and great atmosphere. Free Caipi's every day is great for socialising, I met loads of great people here and we had a blast. The hostel is safe with lockers and security. I absolutely recommend staying here.

Stayed only for 2 nights - wish it was more as Salvador has a lot to offer. Great location in the heart of Pelourinho, helpful staff and good area to sit and have a drink. Felt safe at day and night despite what the guide books say. Would come back again one day.
