8 bed dorm had one power multi outlet power outlet next to one bunk bed, so nothing for the other 3 bunks, not very good nowadays with everyone needing power for phones/laptops ...etc. Very high top bunks had no guard rails at all, very dangerous.
Overpriced but that was the case for everything during the World Cup, but staff were great.
More like a squat than a hostel, great space that could be an excellent hostel but lack of facilities and cleanliness let it down. If you're going to ask guests to remove their shoes then you need to keep the floors swept regularly, but didn't happen. And no aircon or working fan in an 8 bed dorm, then finally one tiny floor fan that only reached one person, in very hot Salvador made for very hot, uncomfortable nights. Much better options within the area.
Needs a few more showers to cater for the number of guests, and the pool needs to be cleaned better, but apart from that a good hostel and easy to hang out for a few days.
The rooms really stink of dirty clothes/bodies, since you have no windows to bring in fresh air you really need to find some way to deal with this.
Make a choice: If you're going to have wifi have wifi that works as well as possible within local area restrictions, not some half assed attempt that simply ends up costing everyone lots of time trying to get online. Or provide no wifi so people can "get away from it all", but let everyone know. I needed to do a little work, so had to spend a lot of time in the excellent Brunch cafe in town, where it worked great.
Some tips: - make sure lockers and beds are matched, I couldn't get to my locker in the corner as the person on the lower bunk had their backpack blocking it, while they had taken the other locker. - powerpoints near all bunks for you can charge gear overnight.
Not a great hostel, decent food in the restaurant. You can find better if you just rock up and look around the very small town.

Good hostel in a great location! Make sure to eat at the great Mexican restaurant below!
Hot, hot, hot! Choose another hostel with air conditioning, the weather is just too how not to have it!
Nothing really wrong with this hostel, just nothing above average and many better hostels in the area.
