This hostel is exceptional. It is right in the hear of the Pelhourino, the historic area of Salvador and close to pretty much everything you want to see in the City. The staff is phenomenal. For example, I was traveling on my own for Carnaval and knew little to no Portuguese. Marcelo, who I believe now manages the hostel and...

Laranjeiras Hostel is a great place to stay when visiting Salvador. Unlike some of the neighboring hostels, Laranjeiras is more organized and holds a level of professionalism that the other hostels just didn't share. The staff is very informative and helpful. The common area has computers with internet access and there is a loft with hammocks and comfortable chairs that...

Great hostel with both dormitory and private rooms. Great location close to the centre of historic Salvador and Pelourinho. Wonderful breakfast, friendly and helpful English speaking staff, a little pricy but good value, especially in the World Cup period. Highly recommended.

We recently spent 3 nights in this pleasant hostel in the heart of the historical center of Salvador. Good services offered. Staff seemed a bit confused sometimes at providing information regarding buses ( to go to Iglesia do bom fim quite the touristic spot ) or a supermarket. The area is known for being well garded by the military police...

An ok hostel in the central Salvador historic area. The hostel has all the necessary functions, kitchen etc and we stayed in a decent double room. It is located near to the big plazas and several restaurants. All in all an average stay with a basic breakfast.
