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.


Good hostel, good atmosphere, very good breakfast


Excellent hostel in the middle of the old town. Very friendly staff, Caipirinha happy hour and the pool of the hostel made our stay absolutely perfect.


Very delicious breakfast. Nice staff. Pool to dip in your feet and enjoy your free caipirinha during happy hour.

Really cool hostel located right in the centre of the pulerihno, has free caprinha happy hour and even a resident tortoise , we had a huge room, common area's a bit cramped. Recommended


I had an amazing ime there. Everybody is pretty welcoming and flexible. Plus, they have staff for kitchen and cleanliness. Would definitely come back there.

wow an ok hostel just crushed with a 60% review helpful.


Very crowded due to big rooms but the atmosphere is great and the breakfast is the best that I had in a hostel!


Excellent hostel. Free caprinha hour means everyone comes down and starts to talk to each other. Definitely the best hostel in Salvador


Great hostel! Very clean and a helpfull staff! I really enjoyed my time there.


Hands down one of the best if not the best hostel in Brazil. The staff from the receptionist, owner, to cleaning staff were friendly and "REAL" they treated it like a business but they respect the customer 100% of the time. The caipirinha hour had to be the best idea i've seen in a hostel. The people who stay in the hostel are cool and open to trying new things. For those traveling or feeling alone, just step out your room and somebody will be there to make sure you have a good time in Salvador


Some negative points : you have to go out of the hotel to go in the second dormitory and ask the hostel's bar for the key, which can be pretty annoying. The facilities are poor : the electric shower exploded and took fire when I was taking my shower. Don't ask the hotel to order a cab for the airport because you will have unofficial taxi company without they letting you know!!!

I wrote to the customer to clear up some points and get a better idea what the problems were but she was not kind enough to be clearer on helpful to improve. Facilities poor?So an electrical shower over heated and we changed it within 2 hours that seems fair,can happen anywhere . We indeed have a secound house as mentioned on this site,some people prefer this quieter option.Our taxi is not official?All taxis dont have to have taxi in big letters,he is indeed a taxi and is listed as a company


Location was excellent, right on the heart of "old town". Staff very attentive and helpful. Enjoyed the free breakfast very my as well as the free capirinhas for one hour each evening! Only downside was the noise on the floorboards above our room. Could hear every squeak and movement. Overall a great stay!


great place, love love the breakfast, amazing, served till noon!!!!!! Great little pool to take a dip on hot days while sipping from one of the happy hours FREE caipirinhas.....And very nice city tour with the knowlegable and fun Luis! I'll come back soon!


This hostel its excellent! One of the best breakfast that ever i seen!! You can enjoy free caipirinhas every day that its cool for meet the other travelers!!!


Staff were not very friendly and bathrooms not very easily accessible, but overall a nice place to stay.


Great stay, highly recommend. Hot showers, comfortable bed, spacious rooms and good location. Also the free ciprinhas go down well and breakfast makes the stay worth every penny!


Stayed for one night but chilled out for 3 more. Fantastic hostel in Salvador. Felt secure. The additional hostel in the doghouse is just as good so don't worry about being placed there. Thanks everyone.


Definitely one of the top 3 hostels I've ever stayed in!! Very friendly and the free caipirinha hour is awesome, a great way to get chatting to other people! One of the best features is the TV room which has mattresses and loads of cushions so it's perfect for chilling out when you can't be bothered to do anything or if you're feeling hungover ! Good breakfast served til midday and comfy beds! There's a swimming pool too, although it is very small. Only problem is the area is unsafe at night!
