Great hostel in Barra, not far from the beach with excellent staff. Everything was perfect. Breakfast was good. Near to the bus stop to go Praca De Se and close to banks and supermarkets.

It's a great place to stay, Barra is an extremely safe area and the hostel is just a short walk from the beach, easily accessible by public transport. The staff were brilliant too, extremely helpful and had an excellent knowledge of the local area, with plenty of tips on things to see and do in Salvador.

My brother and I had a fantastic time at the hostel. We spent two weeks at this place (during the world cup) and that is an eternity in terms of backpacking. The hosts (Ronald and his partner) are great and the staff (Natacha and Chris) are knowledgeable and fun. This really felt like a home away from home and we would definitely stay here again if/when we come back to Salvador. Miss you guys already.

These guys were fantastic. We had a million questions and they answered them all! Thank you so much for all of your advice and support. We also had a small problem with our locker which Roland sorted for us promptly! Would recommend this place! Nice outdoor area too! Loved chilling in the hammocks with our caipirinhas :) breakfast was good too with fresh bread :)

I was surprised about the welcoming email. It was also necessary, since you don't see that it is a hostel. its a very nice, quiet and good organized hostel, they have two surfboards for free, free caiporeira classes in the neighbourhood, good Brazilian breakfast, clean rooms, with light and looker. for me the metal beds are fine, since I like hard beds, the only thing is, if you want to party in the Pelourinho, to come back you need to get a taxi. they have lunch meal for 14 Reais, although I never tasted it, since you have to tell them till 11 o'clock.

We spend 7 nights at the Barra Guest Hostel and really enjoyed our time. The beds are comfy and the breakfast is one of the best we had during our time in South America (cheese, ham, tortilla, home-made cakes, fruits, juice, coffee,...). We loved to end a beach-day (only 10-15 minutes walk) with a free caipirinha in the hammock or just sitting next to the reception and have funny talks with the girls! Good time!

Fomos muito bem recebidos no Barra Guest Hostel. Chamou-nos a atenção como todos são prestativos e de fácil convivência. A casa está sempre limpa, é bem localizada, o café da manhã é variado e feito com carinho. O clima é descontraído e a caipirinha oferecida às 18:30 é um motivo a mais para ficarmos por ali, batendo papo. Os hóspedes, na maioria estrangeiros, nos proporciona conhecer outras culturas, treinar o inglês e ensinar o português. Parabéns a todos e um abraço cheio de saudades!

O hostel é pequeno, mas achei bem legal. Está bem localizado, é facil pegar onibus e ir a diversas partes da cidade a partir dali. O Café da manhã tem uma grande variedade de consumíveis, isso é bem legal também. Os funcionários são muito simpáticos.

Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Frühstück ist einfach toll: 2 frische Saftsorten (Mango, Guava, Wassermellon, etc), frische Obst, Brot, Butter, Marmelade, Käse, Wurst, Wienerwürstchen und 3 Sorten Kuchen und Spezialitäten. Jeden Tag um 18:30 Uhr gibt's kostenlose Caipirinha. 100% empfehlenswert.

Gostei muito do ambiente, fomos recepcionados com uma otima caipirinha! Havia esquecido minha camera na area de lazer e a recepcionista guardou me dando na sequencia (achei muito honesto de sua parte).

O hostel é muito bom. Não há o que reclamar de limpeza, funcionários e localização. O único problema, que talvez seja só do quarto em que eu estive, foi que o quarto que eu fiquei tinha uma janela de vidro e pela manhã o quarto ficava claro.
