Property Description

From the hostel you need to walk just a few meters to find all the history of Brazil’s first capital (1549 – 1763), with its well preserved Renaissance buildings, churches and squares. But these are not the only attraction, Pelourinho is full of life, with different music playing from every house, street or restaurant you pass by. Artists in the street will offer you their paintings, sculptures, clothes, shoes and an infinity of Bahian souvenirs. During the night, specially on Tuesday, there are many bars, squares and (again) loud music playing across the streets.

After travelling the world and Brazil, we identified that our country still misses good hostels. Most of them were in bad shape, with shaking beds, dirty old linen, broken walls and bad toilets. We strongly believe that when you are backpacking, having a comfortable clean place to stay is essential to recover the energy spent during the day (or night). So we decided to do like the Portuguese and start by Salvador opening a good hostel, but without missing the historical atmosphere that Pelourinho brings and, MOST IMPORTANT, without missing the backpacker atmosphere: like you, we can`t wait to know new people from different parts of the world, hangout and have fun together!

- Bookings must be cancelled or changed 48 hours before check-in in order to be free of charges.
- We don't have Private Rooms.
- All bathrooms are MIXED, shared and split by cabins.
- The minimum age to stay at the hostel is 18 year old and the recommended maximum is 40 year old (or to feel like under 40 ;-) ).

    Great hostel in a great city! The hostel might not attract you at once but has an amazing vibe due to its owner, staff, location in the old town and majority of tourists staying here. I was planning to leave right away after my arrival but eventually stayed 4 days!

    Although this hostel is in an old building in the Pelourinho, it was one of the best hostels I stayed at during my time in Brazil. I had troubles with check in as it seemed full but they found me a bed in no time. The lock was broken which they fixed right away. The vibes were so chill and cool and everyone made friends with one another while I was there. I’ll never forget my stay here

    I loved my stay at Açai hostel. It’s very secure as staff have to buzz you in and each dorm room is locked. It’s in a perfect location to explore Pelourhino. Staff were very friendly and they seemed to have a great relationship between themselves! There was somebody around. Solo travellers got to know each other easily there. I slept really well there as you don’t hear any noise from the street. There was always a toilet or shower available. Would recommend as a place to stay.

    Good

    Below average. It's hard to overlook the roof falling in during an epic rain storm and flooding the entire ground floor. But it's more how the staff reacted, no apology received, a discount would have been normal I think. Some staff helpful but others didn't want to get involved. I overheard someone asking for travel advice and staff just not interested. The yellow room had a very strong smell of damp/mould. Location handy for old town but some unsavoury characters hanging around outside.

    I stayed for 2 nights and did not have wifi for a single second. And thats not good, But i can manage. But when the staff also cant help me out with informacion about the city because «I dont know bro Im New here» and makes no effort to Even try to help me out, Now thats a deadly combination. Some of the staff was not very friendly and didnt like that so much. Other than that the hostel was very clean and was Nice with airconditioning at night. Would not return i think.

    Great beds and really nice location! Kitchen was ok. Very few bathrooms and showers (only one hot and one cold)for the whole hostel. Also not the athmosphere and reception we expected from a hostel with such rave reviews of hospitality.
