This is a very basic place to stay but it is cheap and in a good location in Pelourinho. The staff were friendly and you were able to arrange a transfer from the airport which made life much easier. The breakfast is basic but it has what you need, with fruit, bread, cake and coffee. I have stayed in this... More

The hotel itself has a very good location - few steps from the main attarctions of Pelourinho. The rooms are very basic and so is the whole hotel. A little overated and pricey. The hosts (owners) were actually not that friendly and not too helpful. We stayed there for one night, and do not necessarily wish to return.

Truly it has excellent communication and airy rooms. Nothing more. The staff is rude ( just read the answers ) , dirty rooms, the rooms are neglected and horrible breakfast (cakes and fruit ). Cheap is synonymous with neglect in this hostel

I actually stayed here for 2 weeks back in 2011, not 2015, but the site won't let me post the actual dates. Anyway! I loved staying here! If you're on vacation and want to experience Brazilian culture at its best then this is where you want to stay. It's located in Pelourinho and is right where the Tuesday night parties... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. It's very well located, I loved the view from the room and the breakfast was very nice. What I liked most is the terrace where you can relax and admire the view. I recommend the hostel for sure.

We spent 3 nights in August 2014. We had a nice room with view on the bay as requested. The staff is very nice, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this place and I would go back there for sure. We used their recommendations to visit Salvador and the pick up to the airport which is less expensive than going... More

We arrived at this hostel in the night after calling from the airport to know if they had free rooms. When we reach it they told that they would accomodate us in one of the worse quarters of the hostel (the only free at that moment), but the day after they would change our room at the same price because...

We had a great experience at this hostel. The location was excellent and the staff were so helpful with suggestions for meals, entertainment and transit directions to the beach. The breakfast was good and our room was comfortable.
