“Very friendly staff, near the Pelourinho”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

A friend of mine and I stayed in that hotel during the worldcup 2014. The prices for that period were competitive and the staff really helpful and friendly. We used to share many drinks with them and the other foreigners and I will highly recommend that hotel to everyone ! See you next time I'll come back to Salvador!!

Yeah, good hostel, but the ants, big red fokkers were simply too much.
The night we found them we left the room (after doing the ant holocoust with RAID - they kept coming), the next day we left the Pousada.
Moved to another one south of the center.

Location is good. If you will not get in the room with those big red fokkers (omg that were not like european ones, really big, like 1-1.5 cm) the place is OK.

Watch out on the beaches of Salvador. We were jumped and had to fight for our lifes with thugs.

Brasil is so much fun :-P

Room Tip: Dont use the rooms in the middle of the building, there were those "Grande Vermehlo Formigas&qu...

The hotel is simple but nice because it offers affordable rates and it lies in a very central location, quite close to Elevador Lacerda and Polourinho, as well as Mercado Modelo (for those who want to head for the islands, such as Morro de São Paulo). The staff is really helpful and courteous, they're willing to give you any sort of tips that you may need on where to go and how to get there. They also offer a transfer at a good price for those coming from the airport. As October, 2012, I'd really advise you to get it. The driver is very gentle and will also show you a couple of spots on the way.
The room that we stayed was simple and basic, but clean and with good amenities. BF was alright.

Good place to stay for a couple of days, very delicious breakfast and polite stuff, but nobody speak English ( not only in pousada but in the town too) so start learning portuguese to understand simple things... it's really close to city centre and to the bus station to Barra...there is a small cheap cafe por kilo near the pousada, where you could eat fast. I recommend to have dinner in the Barra's restaurant on the front raw to the beach... Food is great, especially bobo de camarao!

Room Tip: We had a triple room with bathroom inside on the second floor...It was quite well, but windows looke...

In the reservation engine I have used on internet it was published that it had air conditioned in all rooms.

Well, it didin't have air conditioning at all, and a very noisy ceiling fan with 2 options... "off" or "tornado". No common sense on this, had a bad time with warm weather.

Toilets ok, rooms basic to the extreme but very clean. Personnel helpful. I have found breakfast horrible, much worst than most brazilian hotel I have visited. No fresh fruits, awfull coffee...

Ok place to stay short time if you are on the way to other places as Morro Sao Paulo

-room was more old than new
-not very clean (shower and toilet with stains from permanent humidity)
-windows and doors did not close properly
-aircon did not work properly
-doublebed room-> second bed was no bed in that sense, very hard, obviously we had a room worse than the others
-loud since pousada is located directly near market square, we were lucky since we were there out-of-season, otherwise sleep would have been impossible
-since the room service would always leave the window open, sheets and cushions always had a wet touch
-breakfast was excellent, enough, lot of fruits, no buffet
