Great location and lovely staff but this place needs serious refurbishing ! The room we were in stank, and the overall toilets / showers were very poor. It was fairly cheap (45 deals / person) but compared to the other hostel we staid in, very expensive for the quality.

Nice staff, good price, excellent location, good service in general. But too noisy! I could hear people shouting at 6 am! Couldn't sleep really well... and they could pay more attention to the bathrooms...

The place where the hostel is located is perfect to enjoy the carnival because it's just 100 meters to the place where all the bands (trio eletricos) and blocos play every night. The staff is very friendly and the owner of the Hostel (Nena) speaks fluent English and... More

This was my first time in Salvador. I went there with my mother. I can assume I had bad feelings about Salvador, thinking it was a Large City, not clean, with violence and poverty all around. What a big illusion!!! Salvador is a very charming city, developed, kind people (sometimes too much kind, beware!). Well, the Barra Hostel is located... More
