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.

    Best hostel I stayed at in Brazil, comfy beds and good air cons. Breakfast was good and free. Great place to meet people and the owner also owns a restaurant around the corner that has the best food in Salvador with some meals including a discount for hostel patrons. Couldn’t rate this place any higher, will stay here again anytime Ps also there’s a free caipirinha hour

    I had an amazing time here at this hostel. Super close to old city and walkable distance to all major tourist attractions. Hostel was very clean and staff were super accomodating. Everyone I met at this hostel were crazy chill. Salvador is amazing city and I wish I had more time to spend there.

    Superb place to stay, perfect location, helpful and friendly staff and good place to socialise at the bar the hostel runs. One tiny tiny complaint would be that the rooms are a tad dark, but that really is being picky and I would 100% stay here again whenever I next find myself in Salvador.

    Really helpful staff and the dorms were very spacious. Free caipiriña hour was a good way to meet people but it’s low season so there weren’t many people to meet. Staff has tons of ideas for what to do while in Salvador and is really helpful from the start. Breakfast is amazing.

    We had to pay for 4 people even though we were 3. The room was smelly and the hostel was very small and did not offer any activities or suggestions on what to do even when we asked for it. The clientele was questionable and there was loud music every night so that sleeping was basically impossible.
