So we have finally booked our flights to Brazil and will be staying 5 nights from 7th March - 12th March. We will arrive Friday night approx 10:15pm.
We were planning to book Open House Barra but I have been looking at Air BnB and have come across a number of apartments which are in the Barra area and much cheaper (saving of approx £50 / USD$75 each).
We are 4 females aged 27/28, we do not speak Portuguese and this is our first time in Brazil.
Is it safe for us to stay in a private apartment like this or is it better to pay more and stick to OHB? The apartments are located Av. Sete de Setembro, Salvador, Bahia 40140-110, Brazil. We originally chose OHB as it seemed very friendly, safe and like we would meet more people and people were available to give us advice etc.
Please let me know, I appreciate any local advice!
