I spent a night at El Misti, and found the rooms to be too crowded and lack of space. The two toilets from the upper floor are also very tight and if someone showers, it leaves the whole toilet wet. There was also no hand soap or hand towels in neither bathroom. The staff were very good and always available to help. The breakfast is included and delicious, probably the highest point of the hostel. The location is alright, its located in Rio Vermelho, the new trendy area of Salvador.
Cheap hostel that includes breakfast but not the cleanest place.
Great breakfast, great staff, good location. Only downside was the Wi-Fi, which was intermittent and very frustrating at times, and the shortage of hot showers. More hammocks would have bee delightful as well, but that's pretty much a given regardless of the existing number of hammocks. Decent hostel.
I realy enjoyed the 6 days there, stuff is very very friendly and helpfull! Breakfast was defently one of the best i've ever had in a hostel, also the livingroom was very nice and the other facilities were very clean. The Internet was very poor, disconected each min. so it realy was imposible to check something like flights, mails, etc. But maybe because there were a lot of poeple during the WC. So I defently can recomend it and i also would go back there, cool people and nice Hostel!
Great staff, breakfast and atmosphere!
Really nice hostel located in the quater "Rio Vermelho", famous for its bars (quite safe at night). The breakfast is really rich (fruit,bread,cheese,ham...). The Cleanliness was normal for a hostel, they had a daily cleaner and it was o.k., even though I can imagine that they need to clean more if there are more people reserving a room. The staff was really friendly and helpful. There are lockers, but you need to bring your OWN LOCK. Summary: Good service at an amazing price :)

Bathrooms are poor - the water was turned off , we had to ask a few times with the result that the water was now running constantly. the dorm of 12 smelled horribly toxic, so we changed for another room where the ac was leaking and weted my backpack and my sleeping bag (they waited again 15 min. to show up). in the end we got a cheaper price beacuse of those problems, which was ok, but than when we asked for a taxi they "sold" us their driver who charged us double of the regular price!
