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?

Liked: Fantastic place, Paulo has created a great environment to meet fellow travellers and have fun. The free caiparinhas are a great start to the night. The hostel is clean and in a great location and the pool is great aswell. One of the best breakfasts ive had at any hostel in the world. The staff are helpful and give great advise. The dogs are also nice to have around the place.

Disliked: Its great they keep the rooms clean but some of the staff are a bit obsessive about moving peoples bags and other property around in the rooms which is stressful as you think youve lost your property and open up all your luggage to search for it. The zulu restaurant (affiliated with the hostel) has great food but isnt really within a backpackers price range. If the prices were abit lower i think it would get a lot more business from hostel guests.

The property's response is

Being large 10 bed dorms and havng a few comments about a bomb zone occuring in the rooms with the bags we decided to make shelves for the guests.
As we all know some guests are super tidy others just throw the bag right in front of the door or somewhere equally well positioned ,for that reason we sometimes need to give suptle hints about keeping tidy.

Liked: Excellent value with good location, decent breakfast and the free caipirinha-hour! Absolutely the place to stay in Salvador!

Disliked: It's a little bit cramped at places, which is understandable considering the Pelourinho buildings. I would change the old wooden lockers in the dorms which didn't feel a safe place to leave valuables in.

Liked: The owner and staff were helpful / friendly and fun - so making Galleria a brilliant place to stay! Breakfasts were generous and served 'til late, free drinks were offered for an hour each evening so everyone got chatting and there was a sociable atmosphere, the place was clean (the cleaners deserve a payrise - esp during Carnaval!) and the location is in the heart of Pelourinho ... and a safe walk back from the main squares! And there's a pool.... We stayed here for the week of carnaval and then I stayed a night on the way through a few weeks after - if I leave you in any doubt ... I recommend Galleria 13!

Disliked: Not much ... after 3 months in South America this is one of the best places I stayed in!

Liked: Great location, awesome staff, great dogs, delicious breakfast, a/c!!

Disliked: There are two properties which is fine but sometimes it's difficult to get into the separate one. But really only a minor inconvenience.

Liked: Paulo and all the staff did a great job of organising the place for carnival and making sure all guests were well looked after.

Disliked: Bit of a squeeze with the number of people there during carnival, but the hostel is designed as well as possible to make use of the available space.
