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 ;-) ).

    This hostel is located in Pelourinho, the historic center of Salvador, and is very well managed. However, it does not provide a complimentary breakfast.

    Really good location. The rooms are Nice With aircon and the best bunkbeds With lots of space for Your stuff, huge cupboards With locks for your backpack and curtains for privacy and dark when the light in the room is on. The staff and especially the owner is so friendly and welcoming. The bathrooms and showers are not the best (very plain), but they’re kept clean. The hostel has a nice spacious rooftop. The kitchen is not very clean, but that was okay. Wanted to stay more nights!

    I stayed here for two nights, it was pretty dead - and that's during carnaval. I arrived in the evening so I missed many guests, but there wasn't anything going on at the hostel itself. The next day there was a little more people but again not much going on. There was a broken bathroom on our floor so only one bathroom left for our floor. Also, air conditioning wasn't turned on until late at night and turned off at 10 AM if I remember correctly, so it's boiling hot in the rooms during the day.

    Very Good

    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.

    Very Good

    Pros: very well located hostel (centre of pelourinho with police in front of it) and in general had all the basic services needed. Cons: it wasn’t very clean, especially the room smelled bad and wasn’t cleaned very often. The common areas were cleaned superficially. The stuff talked only Portuguese (apart from the owner, almost never there) so it wasn’t easy to communicate and create a good atmosphere.

    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.

    The great thing about this hostel was the free coffee, the rooftop and the privacy with the curtains on the bed. The thing that ruined it was the freezing cold AC - I wasn’t able to sleep even with a jumper on and 2 blankets. The other problem was the bathroom... absolutely disgusting smell all the time, the shower didn’t lock, the water was cold half of the time. Overall, I’d recommend this hostel to someone who can stand to feel dirty a few days.
