Liked: This hostel is superb! Free Caipirinha hour, a great free breakfast until 12pm, fresh sheets daily, friendly staff and an attentive owner, Paulo, who really does try to make sure your stay there goes as smoothly as possible.The Hostel is usually quite busy so there will be lots of people to meet and a great atmosphere. The free Caipirinha's certainly aid the socialising. I would really recommend this hostel. :)

Liked: the hostel is fantastic, there's a pool and a "chill out" room with a hammock, the free breakfast is fantastic, there are free caipirinhas from 5:15-6:15, the staff is helpful, the AC is strong, and it's a great location

Disliked: the lockers in the dorm can only fit a small backpack - there will be no place to lock your big bag.

Liked: A really great hostel in the heart of Salvador's beautiful historic center. Everything has been thought of! Delicious amazing breakfast, free caipirinha hour, lovely chill out room, WiFi in the rooms, an essential pool and a fantastic guide book so you don't miss anything in Salvador! Even a dirt cheap walking tour which was great, we picked a really relaxed pace and had a great afternoon with the guide, he went above and beyond to help us planning on going trips. I was very sad to leave and desperate to go back ASAP.

Liked: It's a great hostel for anyone who wants to meet new people, fellow travelers. Also, we started our Brazilian trip there and got very helpful advice from the staff.It's really easy to socialize there, they even have a caipirinha hapy hour around the pool. So nice!

Disliked: Nothing really, just that couldn't pay with a credit card. But it's fine, I got cash from an ATM.

Liked: Very good price-value ratio. Awesome breakfast, Caipirinha Happy-Hour, big rooms, helpful staff (english and portuguese speaking), ... we had a perfect stay

Disliked: Maybe the bathrooms are a bit small and the AC was really cold the first night.

Liked: I liked quite everything at this hostel to be honest!! The staff is extremely helpful, the atmosphere is amazing, breakfast is super complete and delicious and the welcome caipirinhas is simply the best idea ever to get people to know each other. Would definitely come back to this hostel again and again! :-)

Disliked: You should know that it has no kitchen for the guests. So if you plan on cooking in the hostel that may be a problem! Other than that, great place!
