This is the best hostel in Salvador with an awesome experience. The owner is quite friendly and he promotes a culture which encourages people to interact with each other. During my stay, there was a free Caipirinha hour. Things like this ensure that people stay in the common area which helps them make new friends.
The owner also has a restaurant nearby and he offers the hostel guests a discount there. The restaurant called Bar Zulu had one of the tastiest Burgers in the area also offering some vegetarian items for me.
If only he could reduce the number of guests in a dorm, this place would be just perfect!!
