    I had such a great time here. Jo, who runs the hostel (which is an expansion of her home), is an incredibly loving, accomplished and interesting woman. I had so much fun connecting with her. The hostel is really comfortable. It is more Jo's home than a public hostel so it's not a party hostel at all, but it has a really homey, comfortable feel and Jo is very flexible and accommodating. I would stay here again for sure, mostly to see Jo and because it is so reasonably priced.

    Sleep Well Hostel is run by the most lovely lady you could ask to meet, Jo. Located near the lively part of Salvador for nightlife the hostel is in a good location. Not the most lively or luxurious hostel, but certainly no complaints to be had, and Jo will make you feel right at home.

    The whole reason to stay there is to meet and spend time with Jo, a guru of happiness and a life well lived. One of the most unique people I have ever met.

    Make sure you have money in cash with you to pay immediately the complete price. Doesn't smell good in the neighbourhood because of the river. No breakfast included.

    I had a terrible experience, mainly do to the manager. I will not go into the details, but, suffice it to say that I will not be returning ever to this hostel. I would not recommend this hostel to anyone.

    Very dirty place. It's basically a house and the old lady owning it is renting out the beds in the basement. The beds were extremely dirty, stains on the bed, washroom horrible, no toilet paper. No lockers. The old lady was very nice and meant well but would definitely not recommend staying there.
