Good hostel with decent breakfast and nice hammocks for relaxing. Close to the beaches and the shopping center. Staff are awesome and happily answered questions. Facilities could be improved, the kitchen is a bit old and our shower had no hot water, but that was only our room. Easily fixed.

Hostel was in a gd location n the staff were nice enough... However, the most uncomfortable beds I've stayed in yet! The base of the bunks under the thin foam mattresses r a sheet of hard steel. The lockers r made from the same metal- EXTREMELY loud to open n placed directly under bunk bed stairs so near impossible to access. We just left our bags out!! Whilst the beds got made and changed w each guest I Dnt think the place had actually been cleaned in years! Worst wifi yet too

Good day for you too!! The hard steel under the mattresses are to make sure they're absolutely clean. Two people giving their best to clean all your mess isn't enough? You didn't find anything positive to say, did you? Poor you... hope your mood changes or it will ruin your trip!!

I really liked this hostel. The staff really could not have been any better or more welcoming.

This hostel was super friendly. I was lucky as well to be sharing with some other fun guests, we always went out and parties together in strange places and is fun things in the day. A lot was from advice from the staff and the owners of the hostel. Breakfast was diverse and plentiful and caipirinhas in the evening am were delicious. A safe place to be in Salvador which can be an intimidating place at times. Plus go to Rabba just around the corner - organic per kilo with loads of salad!

I absolutely loved this hostel! Such a homely chilled out vibe. I stayed in a private room and it was lovely. Very quaint place. Staff are super friendly and the breakfast is pretty impressive

This is a great hostel. The staff (especially Natasha) are excellent. Breakfast was excellent. A free caipirinha each night was great. I liked the people staying there. Barra is nice and feels safe walking around. WiFi is good. I'd definitely stay here again.

Barra Guest Hostel is really very nice to stay! The people who work there are very friendly and helpful and it´s really a cool atmosphere. It´s very realaxed and chilled out. It´s not far to the beach and to the historic centre of Pelourinho is only a short bus ride. The breakfast is amazing with lots of delicious food and really huge varity of all yummy tastes of Bahia. If I return to Salvador I´ll definately stay at Barra Guest Hostel again and therefore I can highly recommend it to others!!!!

The staff here were excellent - very keen to help, extremely friendly and they even found me companions for the taxi ride to the airport (saving me some pennies). The breakfast was delicious (one of the best I've had in my 7 months of travel). It was a short walk to the beach and very close to a very nice shopping mall (for those that like shopping). It was also not too far to find a bus to take you to the historic centre. It also seemed very easy to meet other travellers.
