It's a great place to stay, Barra is an extremely safe area and the hostel is just a short walk from the beach, easily accessible by public transport. The staff were brilliant too, extremely helpful and had an excellent knowledge of the local area, with plenty of tips on things to see and do in Salvador.

Give you a couple free beers which is a nice touch. Staff generally helpful and good with giving you tips on where to go. Not the most sparkling of hostels but okay for a few nights, close enough to the beach if you want that.
