Stayed there for 2 nights during the World Cup for a game in Salvador. It was my only stay in a hostel in Brazil, as I was a bit afraid, but turned out to be better than most of the overpriced hotels I stayed in. Very friendly atmosphere, with helpful staff. Great central location, but with not very easy access.... More

Thanks for your comments. We understand our breakfast should be improved even as youth hostel. We're keep tryin' something different in the week menu. Maintance departament is checking colective bathrooms' showers temperature, and we already changed some of them. Salvador has a new mayor and a good sustainable urban mobility plan. They are working on it. We really apreciate your... More

For the price, location, safety factor and helpfulness of the staff, this large double room was excellent. I especially liked that it had windows, and therefore light and ventilation. Breakfast was good, although they rarely had eggs. All round a great place to stay. The only negative is that it can be slightly noisy, if that bothers you. In the... More

This hostel is exceptional. It is right in the hear of the Pelhourino, the historic area of Salvador and close to pretty much everything you want to see in the City. The staff is phenomenal. For example, I was traveling on my own for Carnaval and knew little to no Portuguese. Marcelo, who I believe now manages the hostel and... More

Laranjeiras Hostel is a great place to stay when visiting Salvador. Unlike some of the neighboring hostels, Laranjeiras is more organized and holds a level of professionalism that the other hostels just didn't share. The staff is very informative and helpful. The common area has computers with internet access and there is a loft with hammocks and comfortable chairs that... More

Great hostel with both dormitory and private rooms. Great location close to the centre of historic Salvador and Pelourinho. Wonderful breakfast, friendly and helpful English speaking staff, a little pricy but good value, especially in the World Cup period. Highly recommended.

Laranjeiras hostel is right in the centre of old town. The are lots of people on the streets and police around, so it is very safe to go out, even late at night.
