    Good Host
  • Description


    Our Hostel in Salvador da Bahia is perfectly located between the two Barra beaches. Staying here you won't feel like a tourist but as a traveller sharing the day by day of the local's routine,getting familiar to the bahianian way of life.

    Located in the safest district of Salvador (Barra), nestled in a quaint tree lined residential street right next to one of Salvador's most fashionable squares Jardim Brasil which boasts some of the best restaurants and music bars in the area. A five minute stroll from the hostel and you will find yourself on the beautiful Porto da Barra beach with its own Naval fort or the Farol da Barra beach beneath its ancient Light House (First Light House in South America) where you can play in the warm Atlantic surf. Access to the old Historical City of Pelourinho is 10 min by taxi or 15 min bus ride away.

    Staying with us is like staying in a family and also with friends.
    We will welcome you hearty!

    The volunteer programme is reception work.
    The reception is responsible for the check-in and check-out of guests, for giving information about the city and events that are going on and for managing bookings. Furthermore during the shift you answer emails, phone calls, organizing transfers and tours, feeding facebook with news and pictures.

    If you are a creative person in any way...just BE! We are open for new ideas and decorations.
