The hostel is new, very well maintained and - for a hostel - extraordinaily clean. Staff was very helpfull and knowledgable, too. It´s not a party place but perfect if you´re looking for a hostel to relax. Would definitely recommend.


Though the staff were very good, the private room sit on two extremes, careful which one you book, you may end up in the basement with no windows and a room the size of a shoebox for the same price as one with a window and en suite. Seemed they were just trying to milk us for as much money as possible, they said they couldn't include breakfast because it was something to do with HOSTELWORLD... I probably would avoid if I was ever in Salvador again


Really nice hostel, looks like a modern hotel, great decoracion and breakfast. Staff is not really prepared to help hostel travelers, like how to go by bus or what to do different on your own.


It's more like a hotel than a hostel. Not easy to meet people if you are a single traveller. and a bit far off if you want to go out at night (better stay in pelourinho). breakfast was amazing and the staff super friendly. rooms and bathrooms are clean.


Nothing more to stay than it's the best hostel i've been! AMAZING! I'm


Good hostel, expensive though, if your looking for a place to relax this is the place for you.I was there before and during carnivale, stayed relatively quiet still. Almost like a hotel. Very clean.


Stayed there 10 days. Extremely clean cosy and safe hostel ,with high speed wifi internet (which is so rare for Brasil) , amazing large common area with huge multi channel TV satellite , very helpful staff who made us feel like at home with the delicious breakfasts every morning . Would certainly recommend it to all.


It is a good hostel, but to expensive for a hostel in Brazil. The house is nice, but the badroons are very small. The breakfast is very simple for the price of the hostel, but it was fine. The staff is very nice and fun.


This is the best hostel you will find in Salvador. Top location, amazing staff, great common areas and atmosphere. The house is beautiful, close to everything that matters. I have to put a special thank you to all staff including Joana, Bruno, D.Ivone and all others that I can't remember. Will def be back! Melhor hostel do Brasil! Localização maravilhosa, equipe incrível, área comum nova e bem cuidada. Um agradecimento especial à Joana, Bruno, D.Ivone e todos os outro que esqueci o nome!


Great place! This hostel is a short 5 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. There is a bus stop right across the street. The rooms were kept very tidy and clean. There are multiple places to relax and chill out both inside and outside. They provided you with large lockers and keys. Overall, great place to stay. Would recommend to others!


Very nice hostel to stay in. Luxurious lounge, friendly staff and the breakfasts were a pleasure. Plug sockets at every bed would be an advantage.

Very nice and clean hostel. 5min walk to the beach. Has more of a hotel feel than a hostel. The staff is very friendly though. It is a little expensive, but If you are looking for a nice quiet place that is clean I would stay here!
