Great place. Good English, decent breakfast (great guava juice), not bad location, and a very helpful staff. The rooms are clean, and the free caipirinha time is quite nice touch. I mean, the techno music was a bit strange, but we grew to enjoy. Great price, good toiletries, advice for activities from the staff and super safe. Definitely recommend for a stay in Salvador.
Amazing place that helped about my girlfriend as well as myself. Perfect location (right next to the metrô), great staff, and INCREDIBLY clean. They give great advice, and everyone that works there is great to talk with! Anyone who stays in São Paulo should at the very least check Hostel Alice out. Heck, I live here (in São Paulo), and considered moving in permanently! (good long-term deals)
Barra Beach club was an awesome place, and totally helped make our trip to Florianópolis one of the best I've ever been on. People were fantastic, drinks delicious, place clean, and the extra help they gave us was fantastic.
