Nice staff, good price, excellent location, good service in general. But too noisy! I could hear people shouting at 6 am! Couldn't sleep really well... and they could pay more attention to the bathrooms...

This was my first time in Salvador. I went there with my mother. I can assume I had bad feelings about Salvador, thinking it was a Large City, not clean, with violence and poverty all around. What a big illusion!!! Salvador is a very charming city, developed, kind people (sometimes too much kind, beware!). Well, the Barra Hostel is located... More
