We were fortunate enough to find this gem of a place during our stay in Salvador in July. The owner and staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and the location is perfect if you are looking to be in close proximity to the wonderful bars and restaurants in Pelourinho. It's in a very safe area- I was able to walk... More

Well located and safe in the Pelourinho. The staff is very friendly but doesn't speak so much english or spanish, complicated to interact. We had a clean and nice bedroom but unfortunately so humid! The breakfast is nice, you can ask for extra eggs! You can get a taxi drive there and back from airport for 280RS, drive is about... More

I found this little "pousada" in tripadvisor and I was expecting more or less what I got so indeed the previous reviews are spot-on and there's little I can add. The hotel is located just a block away from the San Francisco church in a no-traffic no-through street, near the end of it so in principle it should be quiet... More

The hotel is nice, even though it's a bit run down. Nice room and bathroom, but problems with the lock, the safe and the shower. The owner is friendly, but he wouldn't fix my reservation problem (got charged for 2 even though I am alone). He said to take it with Bookings.com. Finally, as mentioned by other reviewers, the staff... More

Our room at this pousada was lovely and had a beautiful rooftop terrace! The breakfast was good and the location extremely central! But our stay was made extra special by Jucimar at reception, who was so helpful, kind and generous and helped us enjoy Salvador at its best! :) Would definitely recommend!

We visited Brazil for the end of the World Cup (for the atmosphere). Travelled to a few places on the coast, including Copacabana, Rio (disapointing) ended up in Bahia, Salvador. So glad we found this place. Jucimar on reception was brilliant and the owner was lovely! The pousada was quirky, clean and lovely breakfast! Everything you need.
