Very comfy, we were lucky to be alone in the 4bed room. Good breakfast. The only strange thing was that we couldn't cook, as there was no kitchen for guests, so we had to eat out. Fortunately, Salvador is not too expensive to eat out.

Hostel Pousada país tropical is in a good location in the historic center. The dorms rooms are average, they do what is needed. The hostel is clean in general. WiFi works. The breakfast is included as is quite good. Overall I would stay again.

Honestly I am not a big fan of staying in hostels during my travel, but this hostel is different. It's quiet, comfortable and you can feel like at home here. The staff is helpful and Anna (the owner) is a great source of information about the surroundings. What's more, there is a very nice breakfast served every morning! I think... More

Hostel Pousada Pais Tropical is the best places in Salvador for foreign people looking to experience best features of the city without risking health, big expenses and confusion. The place is run by a brazilian/polish couple and a group of polite locals. They work hard to give you care and advices. You may deal with a lot of crazy stuff... More

We stayed there a few nights and really felt like home. The pousada is run by Polish (Anna) and Brazilian (Felipe) couple... little Marcel running around the floor, cat with blue eyes and turtle accompanying at breakfast :) The location is great, just in the center of Pelourinho, Salvador's old city. We could watch some show with perfect view from... More

Stayed here during the World Cup. As a group we found the reviews (and photos) on here to be a bit misleading. This is not a horrendous place to stay but it is limited. The two rooms we occupied were both tired. The beds were acceptable but neither bathroom was as good as we expected them to be. One of... More
