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..

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

It's set up great for Tuesday night, party on the steps which is worth while. The owner and staff are very welcoming and very helpful. It lacks a social space, there is a lounge but could do with an outside area, which seem rare in histels in Salvador. Very relax atmosphere and good breakfast.

Right in the heart of the old town, great location, really feels like you are in the centre of things. Can feel a little dodgy at night so be careful, there is a constant police presence. Good breakfast and nice place to meet people. Not all staff spoke english which made things a little more challenging for me but this is a very minor point.

Excellent hostel... and bar ! The staff is really nice and funny. And, 2 computers with internet working. An other (rare) great thing about this hostel : the BIG breakfast included. Only one inconvenient : though there is a kitchen free, it doesn't contain a lot of tools to cook there.

I stayed in Cobreu with a friend 2 times...first time planned, second time after we ran away from Morro di Sao Paolo.. i can only say nice things about the place, if you want to stay at Pelourinho this is the place to be. Hostel is comfy, clean, I loved the colorful opened showers looking to the sky.... and one extra plus for the staff. All so helpful, patient and cool to hang out with. Cobreu, we will see us again!

They have no luggage room and a problem wenn you stay outsode the room longer than 15:00... Choose a different hostel when you head out late and dont want to pay late-checkout

Good hostel. Neighbourhood is not the safest in the city but it´s fine. Could have more bathrooms.Breakfast is very good

Good location in the historic center (though historic center isn´t that safe so make sure you get a taxi there). Owner Hector is great, but facilities average, room can be a bit smelly but breakfast is excellent.
