Everyone at the hostel was very friendly, and helped whenever asked. Breakfast was good. Everything was good and clean. They provided us a cabinet with a key, so you don't need a locker.


Excellent hostel. Has a great potential to be amazing with parties, music and fun because of the pool and the bar. I would definitely recommend.


Excellent hostel! Very safe and decent location. Awesome rooftop pool and bar, but what really made it amazing was the excellent staff; very helpful and just super friendly.


The best hostel I've ever stayed at! It was basically a hotel - very clean, very secure, great location, and amazing staff. Next time I come to Salvador, I will absolutely stay here again!

Hostel's architecture and interior design are really cool, and staff is also nice. Management's responsiveness to guest's request was very slow, though. I had to ask four times to get an offial payment receipt.


Very stylish Hostel in a great location. Though not the best place if you're travelling alone and want to meet other travellers


Great hostel! Well located for who is looking for fun in Salvador. The armosphere is excellent! Nice pool, nice interactions areas. Only one negative point: the rooms are too small.


If you traveling as a backpacker and want to meet people your in the wrong hostel. It is more like a hotel.


Solid, new and modern hostel in the city. A little outside of the old city so you have to grab a bus or taxi if you are checking out the sights. We came in very early on an overnight, so they let us sleep in the tv room. The breakfast was delicious and the large room at the bottom is good for socializing. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean and well kept


Great hostel! One of the best I've stayed in the world...


Best Hostel I've ever stayed in Brazil. Clean, lively, friendly staff and a lovely rooftop pool. The problem are the prices of products and services offered.

Awesome!! Staff extremely polite and helpful. The hostel is beautiful, clean, easy access... The only things I missed were a fan (since the air conditioner is turned on only at night and ventilation is poor), and shelf for toiletries and more hooks to put clothes / towel in the bathroom. I highly recommend this hostel!


The hostel is located in coast side area which is a bit far (30mins) away from Old City. I was at first concerned that the hostel might have been too away from center, but it turned out perfect. The neighborhood is reasonably safe and cozy area, where you can find bars, akaraje stands and night clubs. The staff (I mean you, Danilo!) was super nice and friendly, English speaking , you won't feel lonely. The facility was impressive too, perfectly clean and nicely designed. Highly recommended!!


Hostel is aimed at rich Latin American travellers - bar prices reflect this and advice on where to eat "cheaply" reflect this. Rooftop pool is nice touch. Aircon in common areas is icy. Staff speak good English (mostly). Good location in Rio Vermelho for those who like to party. Doesn´t provide free filter water.
