Not a very clean nor fun place to stay.
High standard hostel.Recommended.
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
Very nice stay there. Friendly staff, located close to amenities and to the beach. Rooms with A/C... Hot water... Tasty breakfast... I recommand it.
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!!!!
nice place and staff...
Best hostel visited so far. Good location wonderful staff, excellent breakfeast , spacious, clean and confortable rooms, free caipi. Would highly recommand it and come back with great pleasure
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.
all very good, very happy about the hostel and the place

It´s my second time in Barraguest Hostel and i enjoyed it. Keyko and Natcha are very kindly and helpful. Barraguest is very well located, it's near the beach and also has a shopping center next to the hostel. The breakfast is awesome. Rooms are clean, internet is ok. Resuming ... it's a very good hostel. I'd recommend it !!! Eric
One of the best hostels I've ever been to. The city is quite unsafe, which makes this hostel a diamond in a world of inequalities, waste and destruction.

the hostel has a very good atmosphere. keyko the owner loves what she is doing. she helped us with everything and enjoys to get to know the people sleeping in her hostel. most of the staff is very friendly and helpful - some are still in training. we slept in a 4bed room, beds were ok bathroom was clean. breakfast is great! and also the lounge is very relaxing. I would go there again!
Great hostel! The location is perfect and the breakfast was typical of Bahia which I really liked... they would even make you eggs in the morning too! Would definitely stay here again, Barra is the best place to stay in all of Salvador by far. The free caipirinha was also a plus
The hostel is pretty typical for the category of hosting. The environments are organized and very presentable, offering a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The negative points I would highlight are the small carpets of the bathrooms that don't absorb the water spilled from the shower, leaving the floor all wet; and the poor quality of the beds, that much like the cabinets, can be quite noisy,

Great hostel, very helpful staff and owner! Helped me out when I was in need. Salvador is generally not the safest place on earth, but at least this hostel is pretty safe. Fully recommended!
