“Don't stay here!! Poor hygiene and greedy owner!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I don't know how this place got any good reviews.
To start things off the owner is extremely greedy, rude, and cheap. Arrived at 8am expecting that we could hang out in the lobby till check in. Instead the owner forced us out of the hostel to wander the streets with our bags till check in at 12am.

If you plan on sleeping, this isn't the place. Road noise is incredibly loud throughout the night. Waking up to and comparing bug bites in the morning wasn't the greatest thing either

If you like to wash your hands there is ZERO water pressure and no soap and no paper towels to dry your hands. Also the toilets are plugged constantly.
Extremely unsanitary

There's also zero water pressure for taking a shower and if someone uses the sink or flushes the toilet, the water stops for 2 to 3 minutes.

The area is alright, you definitely don't want to be waking alone at night time.

The breakfast is absolutely horrible they hand out 3 pieces of ham and 2 pieces of cheese while 10 people are waiting for food.

We were planning on staying a couple more nights when we return for Recife. We are going to stay somewhere else.

This hostel is located from my point of view in one of the most best places (if not best) in Salvador; good connections to the most visiting places (pelourinho, mercado modelo, barra, itapua...), and good atmosphere at night with many bars and/or restaurants around there. The owner always is available to help all the gests and recommends places to go around.
Very good price/quality relation.
This hostel is totally recommended

Great place, very clean, calm.
walking distance to different beaches (not touristic beaches with very nice ambience)
The manager is friendly and amazing, giving to the place a very nice feeling.
Breakfast is complete with fresh fruits.
highly recommended!
