We will be open for Carnival 2015 for the last time. The old staff is back and will secure a very pleasent stay for only a limited number of guests. Then, after carnival we will reopen under a new concept. For canival booking, there is a 7 days minimum stay during the period. It is with great nostalgia we put Centro Cultural do Bispo behind us, at the same time, we guarantee that the last days will be happy! Read more

About Centro Cultural do Bispo

Please note that the information on Google map concerning it’s location is wrong. Centro Cultural do Bispo is in Pelourinho, Centro Storico, in the heart of the Patrimonio by UNESCO, and not in Itapua, as indicated on Google map, Apparently there are two Rua do Bispo in Salvador.

It is made for people who travel low budget, stay longer and specially for people diving into the cultural life of Salvador. Don’t let the low price scare you off. This is quality, always clean, a little bit alternative maybe, but very fun.

At the same time it is a hostel, café/bar, and a spot for cultural events, like concerts and theater.

People who work there tend to be taken for guests and guests tend to be taken for staff.

There is a comfortable informality over the place and most people get quickly integrated into the warm and homely atmosphere.

The staff is constituted of a group of 8-9 people, living there on a more or less permanent basis, taking care of guests, organizing events and enjoying life.

The basic idea behind Centro Cultural do Bispo is to create a less commercial place where joy and meeting new people are understood as more essential than the money created in the process.

And we’re slowly getting there…

Be very welcome to be part of this adventure!!

Accommodation Information

We will take good care of you from the first minute; give you a cozy bed and give you access to a personal locker for your belongings.

Relax in the bar, in one of our hammocks, meet up with the others in the heart of the hostel, the kitchen, or just read a book while relaxing on a bunch of pillows.

Our alternative breakfast is already famous for its variety; remember only to give us a hint if you want it the day before.

3 types of accommodation. You can stay in a classic hostel room with others, or in a hammock, or at last you can also put up your tent. The last option the cheapest.

For time being we serve breakfast under carnival and New Year, the rest of the year the kitchen is at the guest’s disposition.

For carnival 2010 we'll have great fun here. People of this house is best on parties. We'll serve the best breakfast ever, we'll give you good advises and generally we guarantee that you'll have the TIME OF YOUR LIFE!
