Mi experiencia en Hostel Barra fue increible, fue mi segunda experiencia con voluntariados y fue de lo mejor, se cumplio con todo lo acordado, el lugar esta organizado y es un lugar muy lindo, tiene excelente ubicacion, en cuanto al trabajo es tranquilo, te da la oportunidad de conocer muchos sitios cerca y lejos de la zona. Existe mucha comunicacion con el Staff que considero un punto muy importante.

You are great and Antônio miss u hehehe


Minha experiência no Hostel barra foi curta mas incrível, conheci muitas pessoas incríveis e fiz amizades para a vida toda. Os anfitriões são maneiríssimos, mas o hostel peca um pouco na organização e na clareza das tarefas. Acredito que seja apenas uma fase ruim que o hostel está passando, espero que melhorem nesses quesitos. Localização e estrutura, ótimos!

I dont recomend this place to others. They have nothing to offer worldpackers. The place is litteraly a mess.

Hostel Barra fue mi segunda experiencia como worldpacker. Fui bien recibida por el equipo del hostel y recibí mi espacio (cama y armario). Varios dias por medio de Antonio, otro voluntario, recibí desayuno y lo agradezco mucho porque no venia incluido. Creo que hay tres puntos que se deben mejorar: 1) el trabajo que los voluntarios debiamos hacer no era claro, por lo tanto tuvimos varios dias desordenados. 2) el hostel tiene varias cosas que no estan en buen estado (estufa, refrigerador, bicicletas, armarios) 3) Jau el dueño, deberia estar más presente en el hostel, para coordinar mejor.

About the host

Hi guys! We are glad to have you here looking at us. So let me tell you a short story. Our Hostel is located in one of the best spots in Salvador Bahia. Only a few steps to the sand beach and into the carnival circuit. Do you know Porto da Barra Beach? Pelourinho? Capoeira? Samba? Salvador is a place to visit in Brazil it's the first capital and so rich in culture. If You are looking for Parties? It happens all year around ... N...
