We enjoyed the colorful hostel environment, very artsy/bohemian. Alex was an incredibly helpful, personable, and gracious host. Rooms were a bit dusty, but not bad. Showers/beds were okay. Breakfast was great. Luciane was also very helpful in the mornings when Alex was off duty. The hostel is a short walk from the beach and several bus stops where you can take a bus to all of the main points of the city. There were no lockers room, but we had our own room key and a key to enter the hostel.


Open House was the perfect place to stay for exploring Salvador. Staff was always helpful, friendly and gave great recommendations for places to see and things to do. The location is a short walk to the beach and I always felt safe in the hostel. I would stay there again!

This Hostel is located right in the heart of Barra, and is probably in the top5 for our 3months in Brazil. Hot showers, a DVD room with hundreds of movies, guitars and bongo drums and copieria lessons were some of the facilities offered. Highly recommended


Thank you very much Openhouse for a wonderful stay, we'll be back for more dancing and more caipis
