Amazing hostel! Excellent location, walking distance to the beach to enjoy the sunset. Rigth between Rio Vermelho for nightlife and Pelourinho for sightseen. Also you get an all-you-can-eat breakfast (coffee, fruits, sausages, cakes, etc) to start up the day and a Caipirinha to start up the night... and its every day! For Free!! The staff is also great and willing to help at all times! Defintely a place to go back!

Passei ótimos dias no Barra Guest, o hostel é excelente! Fui muito bem recebido pela Soraia e Ronald, simpáticos, atenciosos e sempre dispostos a te ajudar. O hostel está muito bem localizado, no bairro da Barra, próximo da praia e de bairros interessantes que certamente você irá visitar: Pelourinho e o Rio Vermelho. Possui ambiente bem agradável, bom café da manhã e é super bem cuidado pelas meninas da limpeza. Parabéns a todos do hostel e até breve!!!

O hostel fica em uma casa um pouco antiga mas muito limpa. Os quartos tem um espaço bom entre as camas. Cada cama conta com luz individual e tomada. Bom café da manhã com pão, bolo, frutas, sucos e opção de preparo de ovos tb. O staff é muito prestativo, em sua maioria estrangeiros q estão aprendendo português. Localizado em uma região segura com fácil acesso as áreas turísticas de ônibus, shopping center a poucos metros e a praia a curta distância tb. Ah, tem capirinha de graça toda noite tb =)

The hostel was a huge disappointment. The location was near nothing, there was absolutely no atmosphere at all and at times it felt like an open plan prison with the barbed wire and the incessant amount of rules! You wasn't allowed to fill up your water bottles, wasn't allowed in the kitchen past 10, wasn't allowed in the gardens past 10 and had to pay for almost everything e.g. 10br for a towel that smelt damp and dirty. Many of us who paid to stay cut our visit short to move to a better hostel

One of the best hostels we ever stayed in! cleaning lady every day, good breakfast, good location. Staff is great except that it would be helpful if every staff member speaks portuguese. If you book the day trip to Praia do Forte, make sure they do not book with cassi Tours anymore, be because in our case they did not Show up at all and we still dont know the reason.

A estadia foi muito tranquila. O lugar é ótimo e os funcionários atenciosos. O custo-benefício é o melhor. Indicarei! Pontos a melhorar seria a caipirinha que não é preparada da melhor forma, e a toalha que estava com cheiro forte. Fora isso, foi tudo nota 10!

This was a great hostel. Located right down near the coast line, made for some great walks and sights. The staff were amazing, fluent in English and had a great attitude. It's not in the old part of town, so you need to get a bus (about 15-20mins) but they are frequent and cheap. The same for the airport (but its about 45mins-1hrs) and leaves from the front of the shopping centre.

Thanx again for the very welcoming atmosphere (esp. Samaya!!!). We had a great time staying there and if you're into surfing: they got 2 boards to use! Recommend it!!!

La atención fue muy buena, en todo momento se esforzaron por informarme adecuadamente sobre la ciudad, los medios de transporte y que poder visitar. Los desayunos estan muy bien y el café es de lo mejorcito que probe en Salvador. La caipirinha de las 19:00h no te la puedes perder, estupenda! La habitación estaba limpia y con aire acondicionado.

Great location in a safe area near beach, restaurants, shopping mall - seemed safe even at night. Very clean. Staff very friendly. Not a party hostel but small so easy to meet people (the free daily caprahina helps).

Apesar de não saberem qual a cama eu e minha amiga íamos ficar ( o quarto estava um pouco bagunçado e eles não marcaram quais camas estavam ocupadas, eles resolveram perguntando aos demais hóspedes até descobrir ... Fica em um bairro bom, e tem bares e farmácias e supermercados próximos. Isso facilita bastante. A área comum é legal, mas acho que faltam atividades programadas ( como tours, churrascos ou algo para facilitar a interação dos hóspedes.). Não tem mapa para entregar aos turistas.

Wifi minable

Owner Comment (Hide)
We did have problems with the wi-fi but it's not fair to judge the whole place and staff because a problem with the provider. We called the provider company every 30 min to have it fixed but it was an issue that was out of our reach. We needed a tecnitian and we kept waiting phoning all the time. Our hostel also depends of internet so it was not something that we didn't care. It is a matter of your angle to see it. A little bit of kindness and tolerance are appreciated. More kindness, please

Everything about the hostel was good- clean rooms, good common area, great! breakfast! - unfortunately there are A LOT of mosquitos in the common area and all around really since there are so many open air places (good and bad). Unfortunately while I was there there was a big problem with black mold in the AC unit and it made me sick for more than a week after I left, I wound up switching rooms and then leaving the hostel earlier than expected bc of the mold. Too bad, as it's a great hostel.
