Friendly and knowledgable local staff, excellent breakfast, affordable, secure, well kept rooms, proximity to the water, within a short bus/taxi ride of Pelourinho, Farol da Barra, Museum of Modern Art, Mercado Modelo, ...honestly the list is endless. Though I travelled by myself I was able to meet other solo travellers at the hostel because the staff has done such a... More

This hostel is a brilliant place to stay in Salvador. First there's the view. Then there's the view and finally, yep that view. The terrace has a wonderfully relaxing view over the ocean and even if it rains it's still a beautiful place to be. The staff here are very helpful and knowledgeable about the city and surrounding area and... More

While traveling across Brazil, my wife had an accident in a hostel in Jericoacoara, a broken wrist, which needed instant help, not available up there. I just had arrived in Sao Paulo, so we arranged to meet in Salvador...Through a recommendation from staff at the El Misti Hostel in Rio Vermilho, they referred me to the Albergue Pedra da Sereia,...

Very clean, nice facilities, good breakfast in the morning (they wake you up to have breakfast, something I've never seen before. For some people that might be a bonus but some people don't want to be woken up at 9am). Staff was friendly, not much of an exciting location for night life, except for carnival which is a prime location... More

Came here during carnival and had a wonderful stay. Close proximity to the water, centre, and supermarkets. Michael (the owner) was very hospitable and gave directions from the airport to the hostel via bus (Saved me $30 US! alone). Highly recommend!

The hotel has an awesome view that compensates for a lot of the shortcomings. During the night the only thing you hear is the ocean. The beach is just a few steps away. It was very frequented by surfers, for them this hostels could be awesome. Otherwise I think it is defenitley not the best beach in Salvador but a... More

I spent four nights in this bed & breakfast, and I felt part of the family from day one. The owner and personnel are kind and helpful, the owner has helped me a lot in deciding where to go (and where *not* to go), and helped me set up tours around with an agency if needed. The (single) room I... More

O albergue fica num bom lugar entre Barra e o Rio Vermelho. O dono e a equipe dele são super amaveis. É um hostel super limpo e confortavel e o visto do mar é impressionante. Good location between Barra and Rio Vermelho. Set on peninsula with very beautiful view of ocean. Friendly and helpful staff with American-Brazilian owner. Clean and... More

Great location, just steps from the beach and very well serviced for transport in and around Salvador. Michael was a great host and gave useful information on places of interest. The breakfast was yummy - I don't think there are many other places that have that kind of view to take your morning coffee! Clean and tidy, all you need... More

Stayed here one night on my own, it was not busy so I had a 6 bed dorm to myself. They organised for me to get picked up from the airport as I was arriving in Salvador late at night and didn't fancy the bus. It's lovely and clean and right next to the beach. They have lockers you can... More
