A good hostel really well placed in the historical center of the city. Excellent food for breakfast. The bathroom could have been a little bit cleaner though... But still a good hostel! Thanks Pousada Pais Tropical! ;-)


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!
