Tive uma ótima experiencia no Fonte nova hostel. A equipe muito acolhedora e simpatica. O local fica próximo a todo tipo de comércio e acarajé por 2 reais hahaha.
Aliane e Gleidson fazem o lugar ficar com um clima familiar e tranquilo.
Obrigado e espero voltar um dia para este hostel :)

Foi uma ótima experiencia! O hostel fica no centro, do lado do Pelourinho e da estação de metrô, da pra fazer tudo andando. Pertinho de quase todos os museus e centros culturais de Salvador. Aliane foi um anjo com toda humildade e carinho, sempre com as melhores dicas de eventos e passeios pra aproveitar bem a cidade. O trabalho é bem leve e num horario bom, acaba dando pra ter boa parte do dia pra turistar. Conheci pessoas maravilhosas pelo caminho e espero voltar algum dia! Agradeço Joana, Angelica, Olivia, Dayane, Mario e Gleidson pelos dias e aprendizados!

I stayed here in Fonte Nova hostel for three weeks while living in Salvador. The team is so kind, and Gladison is very receptive and generous. The hostel is ideally located right next to the metro (which means a lot!!) and near Pelourinho too. I mostly worked in reception from 8-2pm with 1 day off a week. I used he kitchen to cook and there is a supermarket and a fruiteria on the block so very helpful. I didn’t speak any português when I got here, but I have learned some! The team of workers here are so kind and friendly and I feel very at home!

Eu gostei muito de trabalhar no hostel fonte nova. Todos me receberam muito bem, fiquei na recepção me agregou muito essa experiência por trabalhar em lugar que recebe um público alto de turista. Gleidson o dono do hostel, conversou bastante comigo, aprendi muito com ele, espero voltar em breve, pois gostei bastante do hostel e Salvador.
