Unfortunately we were also one of those that were robbed as mentioned in other reviews this April. Even though the situation was very tense and stressful the staff handled it very calmly and well. They have our admiration for this. Certainly, the hostel has to boost up the security More

I am so sad to be the one to describe what happened. The hostel was robbed by gunmen at 4am on 21 April 2015. They took everyone's cash and electronics. It was one of the most terrifying moments of my life, I likely will not be coming back to Salvador. The hostel staff are great, the More

We really enjoyed our stay at open house. Alex was a very helpful and welcoming host and his pancakes at breakfast were delicious. The location is just 2 mins away from a big supermarket and 5 minutes from the beaches and banks, barra has a great atmosphere. Coming for Tuesday evening is More

It was amazing how it was decorated, every wall, door and space was painted. Alex is a really cool guy, he is always with a smile and makes you feel at home. He makes the best Caipirinhas in Brasil honestly, never tried one better, not even in restaurants, bars or clubs! He also recomended More

The hostel was a huge disappointment. The location was near nothing, there was absolutely no atmosphere at all and at times it felt like an open plan prison with the barbed wire and the incessant amount of rules! You wasn't allowed to fill up your water bottles, wasn't allowed in the More

We only stayed a night before a very early flight. Comfortable beds and a clean and simple dorm room. Very easy and straight forward. The staff member on duty was helpful and welcoming. More

We were greeted as soon as we got out of the cab. The two guys working were super friendly and helped us feel welcomed. We booked a room with a private bathroom, but the bathroom was without water. The hostel manager apologised for the inconvenience and did what he could to remedy the More

Honestly I am not a big fan of staying in hostels during my travel, but this hostel is different. It's quiet, comfortable and you can feel like at home here. The staff is helpful and Anna (the owner) is a great source of information about the surroundings. What's more, there is a very nice More

The hostel is not clean. Very hot to sleep there. The staff don't want to help, even in an order of a taxi. One of the beds collapsed on us during the night. The only thing good is the location. Don't spend a night over there More

Very strange place. Like a massive wooden warehouse divided up with wooden boards for the rooms. So it's very noisey. They played music full blast at 8am when music outside kept us up until midnight/1am anyway. Screaming babies all night too! No fan - boiling and had to leave the window More

Hostel is in good location, in the middle of the old town. It's cheap, but the bedrooms are pretty basic. There is a really nice area to hang out on the first floor. My only problem was that the toilets and showers are two floors below the bedroom! So if you have to pee in the middle of More

If you´re a solo traveller looking to meet other travellers this is not the place to stay. I was under the impression I had booked one of the last beds but when I arrived there was nobody there bar 3 people who I saw very briefly. For this reason I left after 1 night and booked into the More

Very affordable, a decent breakfast, and clean. Very nice terrace on the last floor and a bright common area. Very convenient 24h reception, and proposed to arrange a taxi for airport pickup since we were arriving late. The fan in one of the dorms of the ground floor was quite noisy and More
