Positives: The owner is extremely convivial and accommodating. Integrated package tours offered at the hostel are quite convenient. Quirky decorative style of the public lounge and rooms is rather original and refreshing. Negatives: Uncomfortable beds, so those with back problems should stay away. Construction was ongoing during our stay-begins at 8 am which is extremely inconsiderate for those wanting a... More

If you're looking for a great hostel in Arraial, Arraial d'Ajuda Hostel is the place. It's simply perfect. The atmosphere, the architecture, the services.. It's complete. Most of Arraial are Pousadas not hostels. Arraial d'Ajud Hostel looks more like a pousada but where you can only rent one bed and meet other travelers. I call it the Pousada Hostel. Carla,... More

My friend and I stayed here for over a week during Christmas. Mostly everyone in the hostel was Brazilian and as 2 girls from the United States, we couldnt feel MORE welcomed by the friendly staff especially the manager, Carla. The hostel is clean and beautiful and in a great location just a 2 minute walk from the center and... More

If hostels would be rated this one would had 5 stars! I loved the interior design of the common area and the patio with the pool. If I wouldn't be travelling, I could spend a whole day there and enjoy the positive vibe of the place without going out ;)

The hostel is located on one of the main street just a couple of blocks from the towns center. Bank and market were located on the same street within short walking distance. Arraial is a small town. Everything was close by. The minivans going to and from ferry to Porto Seguro made stops directly in front of the hostel. The... More

Arraial d'Ajuda Hostel is a very charming and cozy place. It seems that they reinvest a good bit of their revenue into keeping the place look like new. The rooms, common areas and everything else are absolutely spotless. The kitchen is sort of open air and also very well maintained. The rooms are spacious and have state of the art... More

This was far and away the best hostel we've ever stayed in. I am honestly baffled that anyone could give this place less than a very good rating, so I'll try to justify and clarify my view a bit: The staff was incredibly friendly. Contrary to an earlier review, several of them do speak english very well. This place is... More
