I stayed here with 3 other friends during Carnival 2012. The location of the hostel is amazing, at the top of a little cobblestoned street, amongst brightly coloured terraces in the heart of the pelo. We had originally booked a 6 bed dorm, however there was a problem with the advanced payment on our end and the staff were unable to contact us, so when we arrived we MIGHT have been left homeless, but the owners had put aside a 4 bedroom dorm for us just incase we showed up - we were so appreciative already. The owners Amelia and Hector are the nicest couple we came across in our entire travels! So hospitable, welcoming and generous. They really care about all their customers. We spent a few nights out with them during Carnival so they knew the best places to go and have lots of local knowledge. There is a bar attached to the hostel which sells amazing food - Amelia is a great cook - everyone should try ALL the dishes on the menu.
The free breakfast was also the best we encountered on our trip. The freshest fruit, egg, breads, cheese, cake and tea and coffee - it's definitely worth getting up for no matter how hungover you feel in the morning.
The Internet is fast and the bathrooms were clean. They have a big dvd collection and a tv with couches and bean bags in the upstairs front room. Also a great view of the pelo from the balcony.
If you're going to Salvador, stay here!
We are all so thankful to Amelia and Hector :)
