This hostel is the best you can find to visit easily the not great historic center of Salvador, which, as the city does not offer much more ... Maybe the cleaning could be improved and the malfunction of one out of two broken computer, such as keyboard very bad! But all in all it is a hostel dignified, with a great breakfast and a great owner, ready to provide any help to the traveler ...
Very friendly staff, but the guy with the night shift could'n speak enlish. The guy during the day did and thats the most important one. Showers had no hot water during our stay, but it was hot outside so it was not a big problem. The breakfast was one of the best we ever had. The private double bedroom was small, with a little window. But it was clean with a lock on the door and safe inside. Overall, we had a nice stay there.
Instead of staying the 2 nights we booked at the hostel we extended our stay to 5. The staff is helpful and friendly, the location great (just a few minutes walk to Pelourinho, but still quiet), delicious breakfast & caipirinha, warm water, rooftop terrace.. Would definitely go there again!
Double room very dark, common area not very comfy feel that they didn't quite deliver everything they promised on hostel world.
A very comfortable stay with friendly and very helpful personal, who can help you a lot to choose what to do in and around Salvador!

Hostel is great, specially the staff which is very friendly. Location is also a pro: out of the Pelourinho craziness, but still close to the main attractions. Recommended.
Ideally located near the Pelorinho and lots of bars and restaurants. The staff couldn't of been more welcoming and helpful in advising places to go and things to do in Salvador. Would thoroughly recommend it.
