The location is perfect, directly in the middle of the center just a 2min walk to the main plaza in Pelourinho. The hostel itself is soso. Breakfast is very small and you just get one piece of bread, rooms are smelly and dark, everything is kinda dirty and employees are lazy. If you only want to visit Salvador for 2 nights and just sleep in the hostel it is ok, otherwise I would recommend something else.


Really cool owners who have a little bar on the main floor which is definitely a prime spot to get the party started! Location was awesome, right in a beautiful historic and festival district of the city. Facilities and cleanliness left a bit to be desired, but overall a very pleasant stay.


Everything about this hostel was super. The staff is very friendly and helpful (I actually miss you guys). The hostel itself was great, the balcony upstairs is beautiful and relaxing, and the bar downstairs serves the best drinks and plays good music. Not to mention the breakfast.. Makes you want to get up early. It's a very popular hostel, and if you're looking for a good place to stay, this is it. I stayed there for two weeks and definetly coming back if I ever get the chance :)

A very cosy but really nice hostel. Right in the Pelourinho, the beautiful old town. The free breakfast was an added bonus as well. Friendly and nice staff and cheap (before the WC that is). Would definitely come back and stay here!


Average hostel. No real atmosphere though and would benefit from more informed staff.


Cobreu is great. Very good included breakfast, reliable WiFi, and an unbeatable location in Pelourinho. Tuesday nights are something special, with a great live band performing on the church steps next door. The staff is super & usually welcomes you to hang when they are off the clock. The hostel runs a good bar downstairs as well. Highly recommend if staying in Pelourinho.
