Truly it has excellent communication and airy rooms. Nothing more. The staff is rude ( just read the answers ) , dirty rooms, the rooms are neglected and horrible breakfast (cakes and fruit ). Cheap is synonymous with neglect in this hostel

I actually stayed here for 2 weeks back in 2011, not 2015, but the site won't let me post the actual dates. Anyway! I loved staying here! If you're on vacation and want to experience Brazilian culture at its best then this is where you want to stay. It's located in Pelourinho and is right where the Tuesday night parties... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. It's very well located, I loved the view from the room and the breakfast was very nice. What I liked most is the terrace where you can relax and admire the view. I recommend the hostel for sure.

We spent 3 nights in August 2014. We had a nice room with view on the bay as requested. The staff is very nice, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this place and I would go back there for sure. We used their recommendations to visit Salvador and the pick up to the airport which is less expensive than going... More

We arrived at this hostel in the night after calling from the airport to know if they had free rooms. When we reach it they told that they would accomodate us in one of the worse quarters of the hostel (the only free at that moment), but the day after they would change our room at the same price because...

We had a great experience at this hostel. The location was excellent and the staff were so helpful with suggestions for meals, entertainment and transit directions to the beach. The breakfast was good and our room was comfortable.

Unfortunately, we haven't seen the bed bugs before you came. We changed all the room, including the beds. The bugs were concentrated in this room, this problem is now solved. Probably, it came in a guest's luggage and we didn't see. We apologize for the incovenience. More
