Laranjeiras is well located in the colonial district of Salvador. The hostel staff was very professional, and the hostel has security practices in place such that you feel very safe during your stay (Pelourinho can be a dangerous area). Lobby wi-fi was solid, and there was a decent variety in couches and hammocks in which to sit and read. Breakfast... More

A really nice and clean hostel which also has a great location if you want to explore Pelourinho. The food and staff were lovely and we experienced the private rooms and shared dorms and both were really well kept and airy! They advertise laundry but don't really have that service there, we were directed to a near by laundrette instead.... More

Good value, very nice breakfast, clean, nice rooms. I've been there many times, first time in a shared room and more twice in private rooms. Both are very good. The location is fantastic, if you planning to stay around Pelourinho. The staff is very friendly and speak good English at the reception. Wi-fi is very good, but not in the... More

Nice youth hostel. In the middle of the historical center of Salvador. Staff is nice, rooms were nice, breakfast is good, internet is working properly which is not the case of many hotels in Brasil. Would recommend it. It can be noisy because there is a music school next door.

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
