We recently spent 3 nights in this pleasant hostel in the heart of the historical center of Salvador. Good services offered. Staff seemed a bit confused sometimes at providing information regarding buses ( to go to Iglesia do bom fim quite the touristic spot ) or a supermarket. The area is known for being well garded by the military police... More

An ok hostel in the central Salvador historic area. The hostel has all the necessary functions, kitchen etc and we stayed in a decent double room. It is located near to the big plazas and several restaurants. All in all an average stay with a basic breakfast.

Ok, to begin, the hostel forgot to arrange the airport transfer, however, we ended up booking our own taxi within the airport which worked out to be the same price anyway. This was all pushed aside when we drove through the streets of Pelourinho and saw how amazing the location of the hostel was. On first appearance, the reception and... More

The hostel is conveniently located. It is steps away from all the attractions of historic Pelourinho and easy walk to Elevator Lacerda and bus connections to the main bus terminal. This is a four level old building that has been fully and nicely renovated. It was well kept and nicely decorated. There were plenty of common areas, TV/lounge room with... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Salvador. Location is perfect if you want to see culture, great architecture, beautiful views and it is easy to get to Elevador Lacerda (Lacerda Elevator) and also to Mercado Modelo. Rooms are nice, breakfast is delicious and staff is really friendly and helpful.

We stayed in one of the private doubles. The room was not beautiful, but it was clean enough and the A/C worked well. Most importantly, the location is perfect for Salvador. The staff is super friendly and helps you make plans. They have a board they update daily listing events and concerts. There was some street noise at some times,... More

This hostel is in a great location in the historic part of Salvador in terms of sightseeing; the only downside of his is that it is opposite the school of music and what are they good at musically in Brazil? Yep, drumming! So beware that this goes on day and night therefore earplugs are definitely in order. Otherwise I had... More

We stayed at Larenjeiras Hostel for 1 week over Carnaval 2011. The hostel is well located in Pelourino and has very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are ok - very noisy during Carnaval but where isn't. We had a private double with A/C- it was reasonably clean, the bathroom a little grotty. Hot water worked sporadically but not so much...
