About On The Rock Hostel Salvador
Salvador is on a peninsula on the northeast coast of Brazil which shields the large Baía de Todos os Santos ("Bay of All Saints") from the Atlantic Ocean. The city is the third largest in Brazil, sprawling for dozens of kilometers inland from the coast. Most visitors head for the coastal neighborhoods that cluster around where the bay meets the ocean.
A 100m cliff runs along the entire bayshore, dividing the city into Cidade Alta, up on the cliff, and the Cidade Baixa down by the bay. The former features Pelourinho, the old city center that packs historical sites, colonial architecture, museums, restaurants, bars, hostels, artisanal shops, and music/dance/capoeira academies into a convenient, albeit tourist-swarmed, set of winding cobblestone streets. The latter features a commercial center with lots of bus traffic coming in from all over Salvador.
Outside of this area, there are many beach districts that stretch from the tip of the peninsula northeast along the Atlantic coast. The Barra neighborhood at the tip of the peninsula is the main alternative jumping-off point to Pelourinho, and a little further to the northeast are the hip neighborhoods of Rio Vermelho and Amaralina, which feature a nightlife less geared to the foreign tourism industry. A decent bus ride beyond these is the neighborhood of Itapuã, which has an energetic beach side nightlife and relatively few foreign visitors. Northward from there are kilometers and kilometers of gorgeous beaches, all accessible by bus.
Local residents enjoy sharing their exotic dancing and music skills with tourists. Residents are also considered some of the friendliest people on the planet.Tourist are welcomed with open and friendly arms by the majority of local residents.
People of Salvador, as other people from the state of Bahia, have a reputation of being relaxed, easygoing, and fun-loving, even by Brazillian standards.

On The Rock Hostel Salvador is located on the beach front in the bohemian Rio Vermelho district of Salvador. There are direct bus connections to the airport(40min), main bus station(20min) and Pelourinho(20min). Our hostel is definetely one of the best locations in town. It is situated nearby the main attractions of Salvador, with cheap restaurants and supermarkets nearby in the traditional alley of Vila Matos. To get to the main carnaval circuit Barra/Ondina it´s only a 5-10min walk by foot.
Even though the hostel is situated in the geographical center of Salvador, you won´t find a quieter location.The only sound you will hear at night is the sound of the waves clashing at the outer wall of the hostel.
