Unfortunately, we haven't seen the bed bugs before you came. We changed all the room, including the beds. The bugs were concentrated in this room, this problem is now solved. Probably, it came in a guest's luggage and we didn't see. We apologize for the incovenience.

We stayed at dos Romanos for a week and had a great experience. Don't expect a hotel, this is a very good hostel as the name suggests. The staff are amazing, obe guy always offered us new fruit and drinks, so hospitable. rooms were clean, our ac was not working but we didn't even bother telling them since we left the ceiling fan on. Good breakfast. Good wifi. Amazing location, you can never get bored in pelourinho and barra is a 10 min bus ride away

I stayed with a friend at Hostel Solar dos Romanos for Carnaval 2012. The hostel's location could not be better, it is within 5 minutes' walk of everything there is to see in the Pelourinho. Buses to Barra or towards the north are also easily accessed. The staff are quite friendly and helpful (especially on the evening and night shifts), and there is a pleasant courtyard in which to eat breakfast, play pool and generally lounge around.

On the flip side, rooms are on the smaller side and extremely basic. We stayed in the 8 bed dorm, which had stone floors, hard mattresses and an extremely cramped and dirty en-suite bathroom. For those sleeping on the lower bunks (like myself), fans are of little relevance and you will find yourself sweating through the night. That said, some of the rooms on the higher levels seemed to be more spacious, and had good views of the bay. There is only one public computer (which is always occupied), so make sure you bring a laptop/smartphone if you want to access the internet (WiFi is included in the rate).

Fortunately for us, it was Carnaval and so we didn't spend very much time indoors. A decent choice if you're prepared to sacrifice some comforts for the sake of the excellent location. A very atmospheric choice during Carnaval, as percussion groups pass right in front of the hostel daily.

We booked our stay via Agoda, where it was advertised as a 'hotel'. In no way, could this property possibly be classified as such- it was a hostel, and a very basic one at that.
Upon arrival, we were horrified to be taken to a spartan room reminiscent of a prison cell- stone floor, two beds with sheets, and a very small and dirty bathroom. There were no chairs or tables, no fridge, and no functioning air conditioning- only a ceiling fan to ventilate the room in 40+ degree celcius heat and a window that opened over some kind of shaft.

Our room was on the third floor- a hike up 63 fairly steep stairs (good fun with luggage) and adjacent what was apparently the storage area for spare mattresses. Not a clean one visible amongst a pile of about 20... Didnt want to think too hard about the one I was sleeping on.

On the positive side, the staff really were very friendly and did all that they could to help, and the location really was excellent; right in the middle of the old town and within walking distance of all of the monuments. Pity the lodgings were so lacking in comfort- this place was barely tolerable for our short 2 night stay, and I suspect that the local backpackers would have been cheaper and of the same, if not better standard.

Quando uma pessoa pretende ficar no centro histórico de uma cidade , a pessoa tem que entender a palavra centro histórico , as janelas são coloniais , as paredes tem mais de 300 anos , a escada é um pouco ingrime , mas faz parte do charme de um centro histórico , não acredito que um hospede que paga R$90,00 em uma diária para duas pessoas ( R$45,00 por pessoa ) possa querer encontrar um hotel cinco estrelas com elevador , piscina e café da manhã na cama , como foi o seu caso , se procurarem na internet , nunca foi escrito que é um hotel , e sim um grande Hostel e pousada , temos um conceito de preços baratos com excelente custo beneficio para os hospedes

We had a very good time at this hostel. Very helpful and friendly staff, every question or comment was immediately dealt with. We liked the Pelourinho, it is a very good place to stay in Salvador and beaches are reached very quickly by bus or taxi. There are always all kinds of things happening here. We booked a transfer at the hostel and that was very convenient. The rooms are spatious and spotlessly clean. The building is full of character. The only drawback we found that the walls are really thin so you hear quite a lot of what is going on in the other room.

This is quite an average hostel that is not great value for money. The rooms are basics and lack little things like bedside tables, bedside lights, mirrors etc. It is a budget hotel so dont expect much more. The staff are very friendly and helpful and offered us free pickup from the airport as we were staying 6 nights in the low season, which was very nice of them. Nice little gym and the breakfast is good.

Our main issue was the BEDS!!!! They are just planks of wood and our backs were in agony after 6 days! You cannot get a good night sleep, it is like lying on a pool table. This is not the place to come if you have back problems or like a soft bed. Its no exaggeration - it is just a plank of wood! Painful!!

Be carful - do not put paper down the toilets as they will block up and your room will stink!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor
