Great staff! Great breakfast! Free capirinha every day, what can you ask more?

Ótima localização, serviços fáceis e bem informados. Perto de mercado, shopping, pontos de ônibus e da Praia do Porto da Barra.

The location was the best for Carnaval but overpriced overall. The wifi was poor but if you asked the right staffer you got access to another account that worked better. The staff overall was not the most friendly and sometimes I felt uncomfortable asking for information or making requests. I had trouble with my ATM to settle the balance and needed a phone to call collect to my bank in the US, but the staff said Barra's phone didn't call out, so I had to borrow another guest's phone.

One of the best hostel I've staid so far, very clean, nice breakfast, quite atmosphere, definitely not a party hostel but was good to have a break during carnaval. WiFi was not working very well and the receptionists were very helpful but not very smaily, brasilian staff was very nice instead. highly recommended! !!

Bom hostel, localizado a alguns minutos da praia numa rua tranquila, próxima a mercados, shoppings, etc. Quarto amplo, limpo, com ar e ventilador. Banheiro no quarto bem amplo. O staff é otimo, super prestativo. O café da manhã é o forte.

O hostel é ótimo! Gostei muito do atendimento dos funcionários, da localização (fica a uns 7 minutos andando do Farol da Barra) e do café da manhã. O hostel também é muito limpo e organizado.

El Hostel esta correcto, buen desayuno, bien ubicado y limpio, pero le faltaba onda. Lo malo es que prenden el aire acondicionado a la noche hasta las 6am aprox, lo apagan y no prenden el ventilador, entonces te despiertas ahogado!mi experiencia en la habitación fue floja, malos compañeros, ruidosos, prendían la luz a cualquier hora.

Ótima organização. Local limpo e bem preservado. Os funcionários são receptivos e amigáveis. A arquitetura do ambiente é de bom gosto e agradável. A localização também é ótima, próximo ao shopping, supermercado, praia, farmácia entre outros. Enfim, recomendarei tal estabelecimento para outros que virão à cidade de Salvador e quando eu precisar, certamente o Barra Guest Hostel será meu porto seguro.

Muy buen hostel.Bien ubicado,lugar seguro como es dificil encontrar en Salvador.Ambiente tranquilo y buena onda,gente joven de todas partes y agradable Me abría gustado que al realizar el check-in en la recepción nos hayan introducido un poco al hostel,dónde estaban las cosas y cuál iba ser nuestra pieza.Y sobre todo hace falta algún cartel afuera para ubicar el hostel.Por último aire condicionado o ventiladores en los espacios comunes,la ausencia hacia que estuviera abierto y hubiera sancudos.

loved the atmosphere in the hostel, very nice, polite and helpful staff, AMAZING breakfast, and excellent location, only 10-15 minutes walk to the beach and the lighthouse, buses going to Pelourinho only down the road. Definitely gonna come back :)

The Hostel is very nice and very clean, one of the cleanest hostels I ever been. They have free caipirinhas at night so you can meet everyone staying in the hostel over a drink. The staff is helpful and very nice. I would go back any time :)

Die Lage ist gut, man findet alles was man braucht: Sonne, Strand, Supermarkt, Geldautomat, etc. Ich habe hier interessante Leute getroffen und mich wie zu Hause gefühlt. Ich finde es super, dass Ivan Tips über Hotspot gegeben hat (Photographie ist mei Hobby. Hier kommt man übrigens mit Deutsch weiter, weil der Freund von der Hostelbesitzerin aus Dresden kommt. Ich würde jeden empfehlen, der ein gemütliches Hostel sucht.

Nice hostel with modern facilities in the Barra area. Not directly in the City Center, you need to take a bus to get there - BUT it's close to some great beaches and the neighborhood is safe even at night, which means a lot in Brazil. Cleanliness is exemplary, and staff has always some recommendations about things to do.

I couldn't ask for more from a hostel. Wonderful space, people, staff, breakfast, caiparinhas and location. I wish I had stayed there for more of my trip.

Good breakfast. I found one member of staff I spoke to there quite helpful. A guy called Jan. Close to things like the beach, banks, supermarket, bus stop, restaurants etc.
