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.


Internet was just available near the reception, but not really in common areas like the kitchen or living room. was not really clean, shower's and WC was good though. if you came to around 9:30 for breakfast no eggs. The stuff, was helpfull, in Pelourinho you can have some fun, its ok for 2 nights, but I think there are better options, especially in Barra

Definitely Value for money! the people that work there were great! very helpful and caring. I loved their breakfast ! (eggs, fresh fruit, ham and cheese sandwiches with a little panini grill to warm them up) Only negative thing I have to say about the hostel is that the rooms smell kind of bad (humid) but then again you suck it up for the night. Also, the area of Pelourinho, especially where this hostel is located is known to be a little bit dangerous but nothing too crazy if you are careful.

The best things about this hostel: great location right near pelhourino´s main square,& the bar right nxt door (the guy with the afro is great). Unfotunately there is not much else thats outstadning about this place, breakfast is basic, showers & toilets are average, cockroach on the floor!! staff arent particulary helpful, rooms were so hot! no air con just a fan that didnt move & barely did anything, on our last night the roof started leaking. this hostel is for sale and i think i know why!


Really nice hostel! but you get what you pay for, beds are have really thin matrases and its really noisy. We had a room under the breakfast area, if they clean the floor with water you feel the drops.. for the rest really nice ppl and best location of the town! it's cheap so we didn't mind the bed etc. If you have a problem with that, pay more and sleep somewhere else.


The overall experience at this hostel was good. There were some problems with the electricity some times, but I didn't mind that much about this. The staff was very nice and helpful! The internet had a hard time reaching the relaxing room sometimes, which was a bit sad as this is where you want to sit and relax. The biggest minus for me was that there was a lot, and I mean A LOT, of noise from the street..

Very good breakfast! Great location and nicely furnished/ decorated.


This is the best low budget place to stay in Salvador! The owners are such a helpful wonderful people, if I would ever run a hostel i would like to do it in a same spirit like they do. Thank u for the Christmas dinner. Hope to see u soon


The best hostel I have ever stayed at! Clean, great vibe and location is perfect.


Nice hostel and nice staff and owner, too!! But the 8bed dorm room smells like pee....


the hostel is very central, it have an own bar which is good to meet other travelers


The hostel has a good localization in Pelourinho, but its not clean, the bedroom was with pee smells. The staffs were very helpfull and give information about the city and security places. I had no problems.


Except for the fact that the place is located near the entrance to the historical area , the rest of the place does not deserve a better rating. TV does not work and nobody cares about repairing, burned light bulbs, horrible smell after raining, and nobody at the reception room after 2 am. I had to wake up the receptionist when mi taxi came at 4Ç30 am


Nice hostel, good breakfast. Excellent location, next to the party on tuesdays on the stairs! Bar downstairs is nice aswell.


I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Cobreu. First of all; The location is perfect, its in the heart of Pelourinho. The hostel was superclean, the breakfast delicious and the staff helpful and friendly! I definitly recommend it!
