Great hostel to stay in, highly recommend it. Walking distance to the beach, local bars and restaurants. Short bus trip up to Pelourinho. Staff are very helpful and can tell you anything you need to know. Would definitely come back!

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.

Small, intimate hostel. Very nice and varied breakfast in the morning. A bit far from the pelourinho but i preferred that. Close to a couple of restaurants and to the shopping mall. Mattress was a bit uncomfortable butalbital the rooms were good with air con and a fan.good value for money and nice staff.

Hostel necessita de manutenção. Paredes necessitam de pintura e estão emboloradas. O jan, da recepção, é simpaticissímo e super disposto a ajudar e dar informações, mas os outros não são tão simpáticos assim.

Nos sentimos em casa! Mas as 3 melhores coisas são: 3º - os hóspedes, uma turma legal se cruzou, rendendo boas conversas e risadas. 2º - o café da manhã! óxente! A Kelly e a Rebeca nos matam com tantas coisas boas. "bolo que acabou de sair do forno", "rabanada", diversas frutas, sucos..! 1º - os lindos Jan e Louic, que nos recepcionam e garantem mta simpatia. Como nem tudo na vida é perfeito, eles tem defeitos: Jan não é solteiro! E Louic é francês - de PARIS! Obrigada por tudo! Dekuji! Merci!

Excelente hostel, adorei minha estadia lá. As pessoas são ótimas, muitíssimo prestativas e amigáveis, uma das melhores equipes que eu já encontrei, bem localizado, pertinho da praia e do farol, quando voltar a Salvador pretendo ficar lá de novo.

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.

It's been the second time i stayed at Barra Guest Hostel. Coming back feels like coming back home. Last year i got sick during my stay and they were really taking care of me. The staff is very helpful and very hearty. Rooms and facilities are very spacious and the breakfast is delicious. I'll definitely come back :)

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.
