About Hostel Galeria 13

We are located in Salvador's Historic and Cultural Centre, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pelourinho.

The Galeria 13 experience consists of two colonial houses separated by a 30-second walk: one for travelers who like meeting fellow travelers, and one for travelers seeking a more quiet stay. Let us know if you have a preference so we can try and accommodate you accordingly.

Right in our first year we were voted Best Hostel in Brazil by HostelWorld members. You can also find us in Lonely Planet's finicky Our Pick, along with some rather flattering words from the traveler's holy book.

No wonder. By staying with us you get tons of daily freebies, including the obscenely big breakfast until midday, caipirinha Happy Hour, Brazilian film sessions, and of course, discounts in TripAdvisor's top rated Bar Zulu. For the full list, please scroll down to Facilities.
