Unfortunately, we haven't seen the bed bugs before you came. We changed all the room, including the beds. The bugs were concentrated in this room, this problem is now solved. Probably, it came in a guest's luggage and we didn't see. We apologize for the incovenience.

I stayed with a friend at Hostel Solar dos Romanos for Carnaval 2012. The hostel's location could not be better, it is within 5 minutes' walk of everything there is to see in the Pelourinho. Buses to Barra or towards the north are also easily accessed. The staff are quite friendly and helpful (especially on the evening and night shifts),...

We booked our stay via Agoda, where it was advertised as a 'hotel'. In no way, could this property possibly be classified as such- it was a hostel, and a very basic one at that. Upon arrival, we were horrified to be taken to a spartan room reminiscent of a prison cell- stone floor, two beds with sheets, and a...

This is quite an average hostel that is not great value for money. The rooms are basics and lack little things like bedside tables, bedside lights, mirrors etc. It is a budget hotel so dont expect much more. The staff are very friendly and helpful and offered us free pickup from the airport as we were staying 6 nights in...

This is a great hostel. It is very central. The staff speak a variety of languages and are very helpful and friendly. Good breakfasts. Sometimes they have a barbecue night or a Caipirinha night which is a great way to meet other guests. They have now installed a gym. Wifi is good.
