Hostel Galeria 13, Salvador, Brazil

18th Mar 2017

What can be said about this place, seriously fantastic hostel and easily one of the best in South America. Jonathan, Yamu and the rest of the staff work tirelessly to make it a great environment where everyone has fun and enjoys Salvador. I visited the hostel 3 times and desperately missed it after leaving. Dorm rooms are perfect, breakfast is brilliant and lasts until noon and then you have the pool to relax and enjoy the happy hour cocktails. And they have pizza until the early hours! Partha

16th Feb 2017

Fantastic hostel, one of my favourites in South America. It's easy to see how they've won some awards as Vini, Tulio and the rest of the team make you immediately welcome. Great atmosphere with nice, spacious hang out areas and regular BBQs which let you meet fellow travellers. Rooms have good AC and bathrooms with a nice balcony. Their is only 1 hostel you have to stay in if visiting Ubatuba , Green Haven .

Great hostel, went there as it was recommended by a friend and I wasn't disappointed. Shaun the owner has spent a long time cultivating his knowledge of the city and the activities to try. The hostel arranges a fantastic range of activities, my favourite was the chichamocha paraglide. Met some really cool people here too and enjoyed the downstairs space with a nice garden. You really can't go wrong staying here...

Brilliant hostel with a spectacularly nice view atop the Finca La Victoria. Great place to chill out , soak up the sights and live like a bon vivant with tasty food, great company and excellent vibes. Staff are unfailingly friendly and informative and the family run place lends to the atmosphere with fires and communal dinners at night fuelling the fun. Dorms are comfortable and spacious, make sure you take insect repellent to deter the stubborn mozzies. Partha

Pretty much flawless hostel. Staff are universally excellent, who go out of their way to help and make things easy. Dorms are comfy with good lockers, and AC. Breakfast...yum...breakfast, where was I, is amazing. Gotta go for the pancakes and the accompanying fruit which is the perfect fuel for onward journeys. Location is great, close to the beach and not too far from the bus station . Excellent value for money and the staff are just amazing, making you feel so welcome . Partha

Nice hostel with good staff and a convenient location close to the beach. Facilities are nice with a decent pool and pool tables to relax with . Food is a bit pricey, particularly dinner. Although the fruit salad for brekkie is good value. Atmosphere was a bit quiet during my stay unfortunately. Overall it's a pretty nice hostel just slightly expensive for what it is.

Great location and staff. Located in a nice area close to the bars and restaurants. The breakfast is pretty decent too and the dorm rooms have good AC. All the staff are very friendly and always provided excellent information. Only criticism would be that the social area is not big enough or conducive to meeting people. A garden or bar would be nice . Other than that it's a tidy chilled hostel in a good location .

Very chic and cool hostel run by a very nice couple who are keen photographers and travellers. Inside the hostel it's great with nice indoor and outdoor social areas, complemented by the large photos displayed. Dorm room was comfortable and the showers have nice hot running water. Kitchen looked pretty well equipped and you can order food there also. Highly recommend this chilled out hostel where you'll meet some nice people including the owners .

Great hostel, lovely vibe and the best staff. Dario and Julieta go out of their way to help and give the best info. Thanks to them I visited some great places and had an awesome time. They also organise some cool nights like movie night and taco night. Also features a nice rooftop to chill out which would rock if it had a bar! All round one of my favourite hostels in South America. Stay here ! Partha

Great location close to the bus terminal, good facilities including a large-ish kitchen with courtyard. All of the staff here are excellent, extremely friendly with good local information. Finally the atmosphere was excellent, somehow there was a great variety of international travellers which resulted in only good vibes and fun. Also the breakfast is great, only hostel i've stayed in where you get pancakes. Highly recommend this place. Partha

Great hostel located next to the port. Nice restaurants and sights nearby. Good facilities including a decent bar with food. Best part of the stay was the staff, Patricio & Sofia were brilliant, as was the rest of the staff. Great info and help provided, and they were always so friendly. Was slightly quiet during my time as it was off season. Overall I was happy with my stay and would recommend . Partha

Does what it says on the tin, party, party and party. Much prefer this hostel to the younger brother hostel; Hipo. Parties here go on forever and you can expect to meet lots of cool people. Massive place, rooms are nice with high ceilings and good bathrooms. Also I found the reception staff to be pretty good, always giving good info and help, especially Juliana on the tours desk who was always exceptionally helpful, friendly and generous with her time.

Excellent hostel, top notch facilities, the hostel almost looks like a hotel. All of the staff are really great and go out of their way to help you. Rooms are brilliant with key cards like a hotel, bathrooms clean and comfy beds. Common area is fantastic with a nice courtyard, and a downstairs chill out area with tv, netflix etc. Only negative was the atmosphere was too chilled on occasions. Easy to see how this hostel won some awards as it's a really enjoyable place to stay.

Nice hostel, shipping containers make a welcome change and interesting concept. Atmosphere is mostly fun and was quite busy during my stay. The common area is large and includes lots of seating to enjoy the drinks from the bar. Wifi is pretty good and all of the reception staff are pretty good and helpful. The only downside is that I found the bar staff rude and surly, other than that the staff are friendly. Location is convenient with buses nearby and a big supermarket down the hill.

Brilliant hostel, does everything perfectly. My room was great with it's own patio overlooking the garden. The common area including the pool and garden is massive and is perfect to recline in after a long day. My favourite part of my stay was the staff, who went above and beyond to provide the best help, advice and atmosphere. Really enjoyed this hostel and meeting everyone there, found it really difficult to leave. Shout out to everyone there, i'll be back one day soon ! Partha

Worth every penny as you're guaranteed to meet great people and really enjoy the hostel. Location at first seems tucked away but it's perfect as you'll be blown away by the view. The in-house restaurant is great, the bar mixes up some good caipis and the staff are absolutely amazing. Definitely the best hostel in Barra Lagoa, and probably the best in Floripa for atmosphere and fun. Highly recommend and will be back one day soon. Partha

Great hostel to stay at. Location in Vila Madalena is perfect for everything, especially for nightlife and eating. The staff are brilliant and go out of their way to help you and make sure you have fun. They have something planned for every night, I would recommend the pub crawls. I came at a good time where the atmosphere was brilliant and really met some great people including the staff. Would highly recommend this place for it's great location, staff and spirit. Partha

Extremely impressed with this hostel, thoroughly enjoyed my stay despite it being mostly rainy whilst there. Gaston made my stay so enjoyable with an unparalleled level of service, providing great info, easy check in and brilliant tuneage. The atmosphere in the hostel is somehow always awesome, when the rain struck we all grouped together. Shout out to Tati whose smile is infectious and Gaston for just being a great dude. In short , you have to stay here!

My expectations for this hostel were completely surpassed. Lemon spirit is a brilliant hostel in a great location which has found the magic formula like an alchemist and does everything with panache. Rooms are great, facilities perfect and the bar which is run by the maestro Panda cranks out the best caipis. Thiago is the party king extraordinaire, who guarantees you have fun. Ana, Gaspar and Nino provide the best info, help and banter. Damn I miss this place, fist bumps to the Lemon crew.
