I would not call it a pousada, it is more like a cheerles backpackers hostal, but the location is as central ad possible and the staff is very nice and helpful. I didn't like my room but for just one night it was ok. It was located at the back of the building. Probably this side is more quiet but... More

We rocked up here for Carnaval experience, so we prebooked he room about 12 months ago. We were told on arrival that there was a 'mix up' with the room and our booking was 'lost' so our room wasn't available but they would put us on the third storey. That sounded fine until we got to the room! The sheets... More

The bed's mattress are pretty slim ad not very comfy. The Pousada is clean, and the employees are nice and helpful. Located right in the Pelourinho right in front of a very animated convenience store.

I chose the pousada based on the many positive reviews on tripadvisor plus a recommendation of the lonely planet guide. The latter, specifically, referred to pousada as a very cosy place. I wonder now if lonely planet authors may have done their research while drinking caipirinha at a local bar... Or, alternatively, their point of reference was a military barrack.... More

This pousada was the cleanest and best located place we stayed during our 3 weeks trip around the Brazil. It is noisy out there, but at the end of a day you are in Salvador that is all about sound... Theater Montana is just around the corner, Praca de Jesus couple of blocks futher.

We stayed in a double room located on the first floor and booked via the internet before arrival. The room was as described and breakfast was included. The place was clean and basic as described in other reviews. The only disappointment was that no English was spoken however there was someone there from time to time who could speak English.... More

It is a small and very well located hotel at Pelourinho. The hotel is simple, but everything is very clean and the breakfast is good. Marlene, the owner, and her whole team are very helpful and nice!

A very big and clean room in an historical building in the heart of Pelourinho. Simple but incredibly inexpensive. The neighborhood is a bit "noisy" but on the other hand, you go to Salvador also for its music. Highly recommended.

the owners and employees are friendly and reliable, the breakfasts were really good and the location ist excellent to get to know the historical centre of Salvador. It needs more or less 10min to the next bigger busstation (Praça da Sé) to visit all other points of the city, even the walk to this station is amazing. Internet is also... More
