This lovely warm and welcoming home is the best place to stay. Especially during Carnival! Every inch Of the home is decorated with hand painted and inspiring art. The environment was very clean. It is like a 10 min walk to the beach. Also about a 10 min walk to the shopping mall. Truly a prime location! Alex is such a dedicated friendly and helpful host! He makes the best pancakes. Breakfast is complementary. It varies day to day and is homemade! Dance classes on site is also a great perk!

Located 3 blocks from the best beach in Barra. Close to restaurants and bars. 15 minute bus/taxi to the old city (Pelourinho). The owner is kind and helpful. The breakfast is 2 fruits and eggs with juice and coffee. Smaller, but nice. Creatively painted and has a peaceful vibe. The internet is strong. Our private room which was simple, clean, and comfortable. There is a fan and in July the temperature - comfortable. It is a non-profit benefiting local kids. Dance class for free. Fun!

It is not perfect, but they are a not-for-profit establishment working with local kids. Kinda makes up for the lack of comforts. Alex is such a great person, eager to help with anything you would like, with great knowledge about Salvador and the arts in the area. The welcome drink is cool too :) The breakfasts are amazing and Lucien (breakfast lady) and her pancakes are fantastic. There is also a great per kilo place on the next street. It is close to the beach and has a bus stop very nearby.

Great location! Super safe; and only few blocks from one of the nicest beaches in Salvador. There is an awesome fruit stand half a block away and a supermarket, pharmacy one block away. Luciene, Alex and Jacqueline were super friendly and helpful. Plenty of restaurants all around it. This is one of the nicest areas of Salvador, 10 mins from Rio Rio Vermelho and Pelouriho, where you can find music and historic scene. I will be back in Brazil soon and will be back at Open House!

Open house is in a great location. Alex is very security conscious, very helpful and speaks great english. We were fortunate enough to have a samba lesson and caipirinhas on the house! Big supermarket at end of road (very close) also can walk to Barra Shopping. Airport is ages away from city - so if you can book a flight during bus operating hours to avoid R$90 on a taxi!

we stayed in the family room which is very big and has two bathrooms. It's a very colorful place and there is lots of art in the hostel, that you can buy to help them support social projects. Not to forget the hosts are very nice and the breakfast was awesome!! Barra is a very nice and safe area to walk around, would definitely go back there when I visit Salvador again! (only thing I'd do is put a new shower door for the family bathroom, cause I was scared it would fall out ;) )

This hostel was awesome! Beautiful art, great colour, nice music, and alex and the staff were great. He was so generous, kind, informative, friendly, we felt like family. The breakfast was great each morning and we loved the location. The only bummer was an uncomfortable bed but that seems to be the standard in Brazil. Overall highest scores :)
