Pelourinho is beeeeaaaautiful, but VERY noisy. This hostel is good for the price, very good breakfast.


Beds are very very old, not at all confortable. The dorms are very noisy. There is not at all an hostel ambiance. There is no électric plug in the room... But the woman at the réception is very Nice, there is also an aiport transfer and ticket selling for Morro do Sao Paulo, which is Nice !


Our stay at Pais Tropical Hostel was 5 stars! From the excellent location, accommodation, and quality of service offered by the staff- all of it was exceptional. Upon entry into the building you instantly notice the attention to detail and effort invested in creating a beautiful and interesting atmosphere that reflects the contemporary artistic vibes of historic Pelhourino. The breakfast is delicious and homemade, and the staff were a pleasure- so helpful. Fully recommended, great experience!

Thank you for those words and remind you that you can always come back here. ;)


Good location, and special remark to the breakfast which was top! But cleanness is so so and the staff is not very active

Thank you for your comment and positive things. when it comes to cleanliness, we try to pay attention to the cleaning person.


Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cette auberge. Très belle, très bien située, wifi qui fonctionne, super petit déjeuner inclus, prix abordables, casiers dans les chambres, personnel très sympa et douceur de vivre à la bahianaise. Nous le recommandons fortement! (seul bémol le bruit des bandas le matin sur la place en face) We had a very nice stay in this hostel. Beautiful, well located, wifi works, great breakfast , prices ok, lockers, staff very nice and good vibe. We recommend it!


It was a very good stay...I really enjoyed it...also the position is fantastic!! The only thing I have to say is the the down area and the kitchen...you have to open it all day long and maybe allowed the guest cucking...It would be perfect! See you soon...
