The staff were excellent and very helpful. They also do a fantasic breakfast.. I would recoomend this hostel time and time again. It is also a great place to chill and meet nice people without being a party hostel.

Everything was just great. WiFi was ok but many times it went down for long times. Was very clean but some ants in the kitchen where breakfast was served. Nevertheless, breakfast was good and more diverse than most of not all other hostels. Staff is great! I remember only louik's name, but others were great too. So patient and helpful! The hostel feels like a little hotel with dorms. Everything was good really, and location is good - nea everything you need. Too bad not many people were in it.

Café da manhã excelente, com frutas e sucos naturais e pratos típicos como banana da terra frita, canjica que é uma espécie de flan feito de milho verde que nós mineiros chamamos de curau e outras delícias. Além disso, o atendimento foi muito bom desde a moça do café, muito fofa, que nos fazia as panquecas de banana com canela e ovos mexidos pela manhã até os rapazes da recepção, o do dia falava pouco português mas se esforçava, o francês da noite um ótimo papo, deu boas dicas.

This hostel is awesome! The rooms are clean and nice! The staff is awesome! And it's just so close to the beach porto de barra where you're very likely to spend most of the time.

Organizado e limpo. A localizacao atendeu plenamente ao que procurava, no caso, ficar próximo da UFBA.

A very nice hostel with a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Awesome breakfast, the rooms are clean and the staff is very helpful. Fast WiFi! They have a cooking-friendly kitchen if you like to cook something. The beach, Farol da Barra and the Barra Shopping Center are just a few minutes away by feet. Supermarkets are near, also a few bars. It was easy to get to Pelourinho or Rio Vermelho by bus. I would always decide to go there again. Thumbs up!

Barra Guest Hostel was as awesome as its description and previous reviews indicated:) Excellent location, very nice and extremely helpful staff, very clean and...oh man, it was worth paying that money just for breakfast! :D I got exactly what I expected here (a calm atmosphere and great service), so I highly recommend this place. Thank you guys for everything!!!

Staff is AWESOME and they really make the hostel work!!! To summarize, it was the BEST staff I have seen so far!! There were only two things I didn´t like: lots of mosquitoes and no keys on rooms doors, so everybody could get into your room... I just loved the free rounds of caipirinhas. They were delicious :)

Staff is super friendly. Breakfast is very basic, it did not always look fresh. The bathroom had a strange smell and the hot shower was absolutely not pressurized! Also the matress was quite uncomfortable. The price was cheap so I guess thats what you get for it.

Excelente predisposición para explicar y ayudar por parte de todo el staff!!! Estuve en 2 habitaciones diferentes, siempre todo muy limpio y los baños comodísimos. La ubicación del hostel es perfecta porque está en un barrio seguro y a 3 cuadras del Shopping Barra, un lugar estratégico para moverse con los micros. Los desayunos más que completos y abundantes y a la tarde las mejores caipirinhas!!! Gracias Natasha! Conocí varios hostels de Salvador y una vez que vine acá, siempre vuelvo!!

Everything was amazing! I have been to multiple hostels in Brazil and this was by far the best one yet. Clean, calm, INCREDIBLE breakfast, extremely friendly and informative staff, and a FREE caipirinha daily. Kitchen was large and fully stocked. Living room with big TV. Hammocks and couches in outside patio. Great location near grocery stores, bus stop, banks, shopping mall, beaches and the lighthouse. This is a home away from home. I wish I could say the same about my current hostel.

Nous etions 3 et n'avons pas compris d'ou venaient tant de commentaires positifs ! La chambre etait petite et sentait mauvais, les draps etaient humides. Pour ne pas utiliser la clim nous laissions la porte ouverte la nuit (pas de fenetre) et du coup beaucoup de bruit, d'autant plus que les regles de silence ne sont pas respectees. Le personnel nous a indique un trajet de 20 minutes pour aller a la gare routiere : meme en prevoyant plus d'1h de marge nous avons failli rater notre bus !

I have had the pleasure of staying at this hostel 4 times now. Staff is cordial and very knowledgeable about Salvador. Location is great, restaurants and shops very conveniently around the area.

Great location if wanting to be in bahia area. Staff were helpful and had plenty of suggestions. Nice relaxed atmosphere, nice breakfast and well equipped kitchen. Not a huge hostel but really friendly. We travelled during world cup so it was not cheap but we were happy with the value for our money. Our private double was nice with a great little ensuite. Good wifi. No complaints to speak of. Great little hostel.
