Property Description

We are located in Salvador's Historic and Cultural Centre, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pelourinho.

The Galeria 13 experience consists of two colonial houses separated by a 30-second walk: one for travelers who like meeting fellow travelers, and one for travelers seeking a more quiet stay. Let us know if you have a preference so we can try and accommodate you accordingly.

Right in our first year we were voted Best Hostel in Brazil by HostelWorld members. You can also find us in Lonely Planet's finicky Our Pick, along with some rather flattering words from the traveler's holy book.

No wonder. By staying with us you get tons of daily freebies, including the obscenely big breakfast until midday, caipirinha Happy Hour, Brazilian film sessions, and of course, discounts in TripAdvisor's top rated Bar Zulu. For the full list, please scroll down to Facilities.

    I had a great stay here. The free breakfast is good. The pool area is nice and a good place to meet other travellers, particularly during the free caipirinha hour! Good location in the historic centre. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    I haven't taken a solo-trip in a while so I was a bit nervous coming to Salvador especially because it's my first time travelling in South America. I had an amazing time here. Great hospitality, and a really nice location to walk to many places. Cocktail hour is a great time for meeting people and the free breakfast is a really good deal. My stay here was too short, I'll likely be back!

    We absolutely loved this hostel! There is no kitchen but the hostel provides pizzas, an amazing breakfast that goes on until 12, and a discount in Bar Zulu, a delicious restaurant connected to the hostel. The hostel is very clean, the rooms are spacious and the pool is an added bonus. The atmosphere was fantastic and the hostel is very social, providing a board with a list of the best places to go out each evening. It's been our favourite hostel in Brazil so far and genuinely had the best time.

    I haven't slept here as I double booked a hotel, but I came here a few evenings for the vibe and the people - they have a pool and a happy hour with free caipirinhis when people get together and plan the rest of the night, I would recommend coming here for anyone visiting Salvador. One issue, as with many hostels, is that they don't turn on the air conditioner until relatively late in the evening.

    Everything has pretty much already been said. My favorite part is the fact that it’s a great place to meet other travelers. The air conditioner was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. It wasn’t a perfect 10 eating cuz there was one girl at the front desk who didn’t have such a friendly feel to her, but the tall guy w/a beard (I think he’s the owner) is very welcoming and awesome! Definitely recommend the place!

    Good breakfast, and nice idea of having caipirinha-hour (unfortunately if you came 5 min to late that was it - and luckily other times you could drink of the cocktails for hours it there was some left). Made everybody gather at the pool area. Nice that there was a pool. 2 downsides: sometimes there was cleaning of the bathrooms in our dorm in the middle of the night (not best time in my opinion), and some of the staff members were a bit direct/coming of as a bit unfriendly - others very friendly
