Overall it's a good place to stay. Owner can come off as not caring about you but after a while, you'll realize that it's simply his style. He cares about his place (very clean) although the two big dogs are on the messy side. The strongest points: breakfast (a good one) until noon, free caipirinhas from 5-6pm, and a nice patio with a (tiny) swimming pool. On the things to know prior to booking side, no kitchen and limited indoor common area (especially noticeable when it's raining outside)

After staying at this hostel i have a little problem - other places don't measure up☺ I truly felt you were worth every centavo. The breakfast is tasty, varied and beautifully set up. The room's just so comfy that I had the best sleep ever and the staff a cool mix of friendly and knowledgeable yet chilled (thank you!!). The atmosphere felt great, an easy place to meet new people. You lounge room is so temptingly comfortable that I just wanted to lounge all day in it!

Nice hostel, free each night for the hour is a great way to get people together, the pool is a nice respite from the extreme Salvador heat and breakfast is one of the best in South America ovo com calabresa! Zulu and Spartan the hostel dogs make the place feel even more homely, hoping Zulu is on the mend and Carina on the front desk is a great asset to the hostel!

I felt home since the first moment. It was very clean and I loved the different spaces to sit and meet other people. The dogs are the most lovely ones I've ever seen! The atmosphere was just great! I just would have wished to have a ladder to climb the bed. Next time in Salvador I will come back to your hostel. Até logo! Beijos

The free caipirinhas, swimming pool and breakfast are really good! The atmosphere is good but not extraordinary.

The location and the vibe of the hostel is amazing! Only few staff members didn't seem to be interested in doing their job properly at least when talking to them in English. After starting the conversation in Portuguese, they where a little more helpful. But the owner always recommended nice places and activities to do in Salvador and around. Another suggestion: repair the leak in the bathroom and/or introduce shelfs to give a possibility to store your stuff. All in all: nice hostel!!!

Probably the best hostel i've stayed in for atmosphere, they have a happy hour which is great for meeting lots of people. Breakfast is also really nice and goes on till late. Good staff and overall just a good place to stay. Highly recommended.

Even though the hostel has set rules, this place is warm and welcoming (the dogs too!). Happy hour everyday consists of free cocktails. Everyone comes out for drinks and mingle.The breakfast is fresh and delicious. We stayed in a private room for 3 nights and a dorm for 1 night, which turned out to be more comfortable than the private room. The shower in our dorm room was cold. The staff kindly cut open my locker because I lost my keys and I am forever grateful. Highly recommended.

The hostel was even better than expected! The staff was super friendly and helpful. There was a daily list of activities next to the front desk so that we wouldn't miss anything going on in the city. The breakfast till noon was perfect and even if you showed up close to noon, there was still food available and delicious eggs and sausage. The cherry on top of our stay had to be the all you can drink caipirinha happy hour. It allowed you to get a chance to know other guests.
