Liked: The private room we had on the top floor was huge and had a hammock in it! The breakfast was excellent, most staff also very nice (including Paolo once you get to know him a little bit), the free caipirinha hour was really fun and good for meeting others. Also great location-wise.

Disliked: They always seemed to be hanging out laundry around the pool area during the only time of day that the sun was on the pool, this meant you couldn't enter the area... might be better to do that at a different time of day!

Liked: This is a fantastic hostel run by a hospitable and conscientious group of staff!! It has a great welcoming atmosphere as soon as you arrive and steers away from the classic boring "hostel chain" hostels! Breakfast is amazing!!!!! I would recommend this hostel to any travelled coming to Salvador! Maybe book for 2-3 nights and then get a ferry over to the island Morro de Sao Paolo for 2-3 nights because it is amazing!

Disliked: No card paying facilities, so cash only! No major problems!

Liked: Amazing breakfast with heaps of choice! Very clean. Comfy beds. Good place to spend a couple of days in pelourinho. Free caipirinha hour.

Disliked: The restaurant isn't very backpacker friendly. Maybe they could do a backpacker deal instead of just 10% off some dishes?
