    A really nice hostel with a fantastic host, Alejandro cooks up a great breakfast. There’s a good, relaxing & friendly vibe - it’s very secure and a nice area. The beaches nearby are very nice and the Barra lighthouse for sunset can’t be missed, while Pelourinho is a short bus ride away.

    I enjoyed my stay at Open House Barra. The location is within walking distance to Barra beach and the shopping mall. Getting there from the airport was also fairly easy.

    great location, security and staff. The downstairs room was well below standards in terms of cleanliness. 5 bed dorm with 2 bathrooms were 'cleaned' once in 8 nights.

    I have been travelling for 6 months and this is the dirtiest place I’ve stayed. The owner is nice, but I wouldn’t recommend anyone stay here. I am so confused about the rating of this place. Had to ask for the bathroom to be cleaned as it clearly hadn’t been cleaned in a long time. The basement Smelt of damp and really dirty. The sheets, linen and towels were horrible. We had to ask for the double bed linen to be changed as it clearly hadn’t been. The furniture is all damp and dirty as well.
