The location is great. Unfortunately that is the only good thing to say. We arrived at an iron doorway with no indication of how to get in (we had just walked a long way with heavy bags and were exhausted). The whole hostel was very dark and dirty, our room had an extremely loud fan you couldn't switch off, and the mattress was literally paper thin. We didn't get a wink of sleep. The breakfast was terrible and the staff were useless. DO NOT STAY HERE.
Great location, around in the room) good breakfast ~rooms are decent albeit crammed (I'd prefer dorms with more than 4 beds in favor of being able to turn - not much of a hostel atmosphere/ opportunity to meet people - restricted access to kitchen making it difficult to cook yourself - staff members don't seem to communicate you were constantly sent from one person to the next to get questions answered or had all staff members ask you the same questions
Nice colourful pousada with perfect location in the pelourinho. The staff is friendly and helpful!! Only negative point is the taxi-transfer from the airpoirt that is more expensive than a normal taxi and the taxidriver arrived late both times we used the service. The cleanliness could be really better, especially in the bathroom. Internet works really good in the first floor where there are also computers at disposition.
the hostel is located in pelourinho, the downtown of Salvador, u can see this part of the city in a couple of hours, u´d better book in barra, where are the best clubs and restaurants
