About Alpha Hostel - Salvador

We chose Barra -- the safest and most fashionable neighborhood of Salvador. There, we found a beautiful and well built house from the 50s that still kept its marble and wooden floors, and had a spacious backyard surrounded by flower gardens. We reformed the house for Alpha Hostel just to give more comfort to our guests while maintaining the elegant atmosphere and generous design of times past.

In addition to two dorms and two private rooms, we provide twelve suites – a flexible mix to satisfy all types of customers, from single guests to groups of all ages and families. Altogether, we have seventeen showers with hot water which comes from a solar heating system and state-of-the-art boiler equipment. By using new technologies and materials and keeping the original blue print of the house, we wanted to ensure that our guests would enjoy staying home, relaxing and mingling in our roomy lounge or our backyard gazebo, using our free internet and WI-FI services or cooking in a fully equipped kitchen.

Such splendid house is extremely well located. Alpha Hostel’s guests will feel at home walking through the friendly neighborhood, or going out to surf in the best beach in town - Praia da Barra - located just two small blocks away from us. Barra is known for its variety of restaurants, bars and places with live music where interesting and joyous people meet. Also, within walking distance from Alpha Hostel guests will find supermarkets, bakery shops, fruit markets and convenience stores of all sorts. Basically, Alpha Hostel is located in the same block of modern and huge Shopping da Barra while being 10 minutes away by bus from Pelourinho (the Historic Centre)

For those who want to discover the fantastic Carnival of Salvador, during Carnival period Barra turns itself into a huge party, with street balls and ‘Trio Electrico’ parades. For New Year’s party, Praia da Barra is the Salvador’s favorite choice for a great firecracker show and a music concert.

House and location would not be sufficient to name the hostel an Alpha. Our staff is the key to provide quality service to our guests. At Alpha Hostel we have made a point of employing associates that are helpful and truly friendly to our guests, which is what has gathered us the highest ratings in international booking sites.

It has been our policy to ensure that we always employ people persons who know their job and are able the give guests the best recommendations on where and how to go, let them know about the best alternatives for tours and sightseeing, help them on any situations that may arise, and ensure that Alpha Hostel’s guests get the most for their money, making their stay with us the best cost-benefit equation for their stay in the cities that we are located – Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.
