    The host David is the nicest dude. He bought me a beer and pointed me in the direction of free wifi because the wifi went down one night. Top guy!

    Cafe Hostel was charming and cozy, there’s only one room with 8 beds but it’s quite roomy and doesn’t feel crowded when the beds are full. There are a few common areas where you can relax in peace. Only downside is no breakfast and you’re technically not allowed to use the kitchen. David, the hostel manager works very hard to keep the place in order and he’s always available to help. Super accommodating and friendly guy! The hostel dog Beruit is also very sweet! Perfect location, great service.

    I truly enjoyed staying here. I felt at home. I think having the lounge area was a huge bonus. It is an intimate space. Not overly crowded or transactional. David introduced me to everyone staying here as he showed me to the room which was a huge advantage for me because, i can have a bit of social anxiety. The entire time here though felt like i was visiting with family instead of a hostel. It almost feels romantic

    Cafe Hostel is a lovely stay for travellers looking for a tranquil, charming space that is also right next to the main entertainment/tourist spots of Salvador. The garden is the perfect place to relax, listen to music, enjoy a (free!) caiparinha and chat with the hostel’s awesome manager, David. He is a wonderful guy who is always happy to help out with any enquiries you have. Loved my stay at Cafe Hostel, obrigado David, James.

    David was incredibly accommodating and helpful. The hostel was small and friendly. I loved being able to use the small kitchen to prepare simple meals if needed. the bathroom was well maintained. I wish it were closer to the beach but it was easily accessible on a cheap bus. Being in the historic city was awesome because there was always some music or dancing in the vicinity.

    One word. Eccentric. Thank you David for the short time spent there and for the cafe music filtering through upstairs in the morning. Subtle, quiet and by no means showy a stay at Cafe Hostel will not be for everyone but for some it will evoke nostalgia and memory. A secret garden of a hostel.

    They cancelled my reservation just a few hours before check-in, making me arrive at Salvador without a place to stay. Refund came a few days later. Bad experience
