Great ambience, great location, good vibes. Stay here!!
The staff really made this place stand out. Lu and Eveline were so incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. The booking website made an error and I was accidentally placed in a male room, which was a little bit awkward, but I was only there for two nights. The breakfast was also great, with hot food and tapioca made to order. The location is right next to a pharmacy, artisanal market, and a bus stop that goes all over the city.
Pros: very good wifi -computers to use whenever you want Cons: -Worst breakfast (bread and butter and some fruit. No ham or cheese or even jelly. They also always ran out of coffee). -two outlets for the whole room, one more in the bathroom -staff originally said I could come back and take a shower after I had checked out as I had a late flight. Then they changed their mind. -staff didn't seem to know what was going on and were generally super unhelpful -prostitutes down the street
This the best hostel you could choose to stay at in Salvador. The breakfast is amazing and lasts till 12. Also free caipirinhas for one hour are bomb. As long as you are respectful of the rules you'll have a great time. With the free drinks and huge breakfast, this is the best value for the money you could get. Stay here!!!
Pros: -good location in Cidade Baixa (go to the Dirty Old Man next door!!!) -pretty clean, the cleaning lady is working all the time -the bar gets busy at night and there are plenty of people to meet Cons: -Breakfast is very average, just stale bread, cheese, and some jam/butter. -Some of the bathroom stall doors don't close. Girls bathroom smells bad. -One of the staff members refused to turn on the air conditioning in our room (the others didn't give me a problem, though)
