The host is honest, friendly and helpful. It's near from international airport. The internet is fast. The room is very large. I think the hotel is ideal place to stay in Salvador.
My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Viva Bahia for several days leading up to and during Carnival. It was phenomenal! I booked it without checking the location so I was surprised to find that it was 27 km outside of the city center. Do NOT let this worry you. It is easy to catch buses and is the same cost as going anywhere out. There is a major bus stop nearby and you get great restaurants, better beaches and MUCH more value for your money. The owner is great, super friendly and helpful.
