We stayed at Nega for about 5 nights and it was an excellent experience. The manager, Gustavo, is super helpful - always offering advice and help. The location is excellent - only minutes from the heart of Pelourinho - and despite all the rumors of violence in the historic centre, we didn't have one problem, even walking around late at night. The breakfast was probably the best I've had in any hostel in Brazil, you get free coffee all day, and they have lovely, friendly pets, HOT showers, good wifi, and use of computers if you need them. The only negative about the hostel is the fact that the building is quite old, and years of rain and humidity have left everything feeling and smelling a bit damp and old. Especially the dorm rooms downstairs. This is beyond the control of the managers though, and if you can respect the age of the building, it shouldn't bother you too much. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Nega, and for the price, I don't think you can get much better in Pelourinho. Thanks Gustavo!
