Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

We are located in Salvador's Historic and Cultural Centre, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pelourinho.

The Galeria 13 experience consists of two colonial houses separated by a 30-second walk: one for travelers who like meeting fellow travelers, and one for travelers seeking a more quiet stay. Let us know if you have a preference so we can try and accommodate you accordingly.

Right in our first year we were voted Best Hostel in Brazil by HostelWorld members. You can also find us in Lonely Planet's finicky Our Pick, along with some rather flattering words from the traveler's holy book.

No wonder. By staying with us you get tons of daily freebies, including the obscenely big breakfast until midday, caipirinha Happy Hour, Brazilian film sessions, and of course, discounts in TripAdvisor's top rated Bar Zulu. For the full list, please scroll down to Facilities.

Carnival 2020 :All bookings for the dates of Carnival have to be paid in full within a week of booking or the reservation will be cancelled

    Definitely one of my favorite hostels in Brasil. Always a nice mix of travelers and Paulo, Jonathan and ladies in the kitchen are great. Did I already mention the caipirinha happy hour? The moment to connect Carol

    Een heel gezellig hostel, bestaande uit twee delen die op 1 minuut lopen van elkaar liggen. Het is schoon, gezellig en de staff is zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Free caiparinha hour zorgt voor veel sfeer en gezelligheid! Alles aan dit hostel is gewoon goed. Het enige mindere punt (maar dat is persoonlijk) vind ik de buurt. Het centrum van Salvador is druk en niet bepaalt veilig. Gelukkig zit het politiebureau om de hoek, wat de omgeving wat veiliger doet voelen.

There's a swimming pool and a lot of things to do. Happy hour is amazing, even though we sadly didn't make it every time XD Would definitely recommend en we will be back when in Salvador.
