This is a Trusted Review. Why?

What a gold nugget this place really is! Soon after reaching Salvadore the owner gave us a full hour run down of the activities, sites, dos and don'ts. We had a fabulous 3 days in March including a surfing lesson taken by one of the employees. Beach and bars are close by and it's probably the best location in Salvodore. Best part about it is that we were introduced to all the other travellers staying there and had some great nights out with them. Has a relaxed family feel. The owner then helped us with accommodation and transprot to our next destination. Thanks for a wonderful and very hospitable stay.

It is located in a peacefull area of Salvador, near all interesting places. The owner, Rusell is an easy going man, he is always present for anything you need, so you are not going to be alone in Salvador, whatever you need, he is going to be there.
The Hostel is very clean, not expensive, and be sure you will like it.
