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.

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!
