it's a great place for a low price. Pelourinho is a nice neighborhood, nice atmosphere and not so dangerous. Rooms are OK, breakfast is great, there are some nice hammocks. The best thing is the staff and the atmosphere.

I stayed once and came back the next week because I love this place! It is under new ownership and Leigh went out of her way to help and welcome me to salvador. It is clean and the breakfast and location are perfect. I highly recommend to anyone passing through to stay here...you will not be disappointed!

Situated on the famous Pelourinho, Hostel Cobreu offers nice accomodation in affordable price. I stayed in Hostel Cobreu on August 2013 with another 4 friends. We shared the 10-bed mixed dorm with 5 other people, yet I still feel comfortable keeping my stuffs in the room. Make sure you bring your own padlock since they don't provide locks. Clean bathrooms,...

A late review because I joined trip advisor well after my trip to Brazil with another 63 year old male friend in March/April 2012. Having decided that we could only afford to do this trip if we kept the price down we were pleasantly surprised throughout our visit at the warmth afforded two strange old duffers - no place more...

We stayed for three nights here in July. Cannot fault the location - right in the heart of it all. The breakfast was good for a hostel - fresh juice, bread, eggs and coffee. A bit noisy at night, but that didn't bother us. The staff were okay - not hugely enthusiastic or informative. Unfortunately, it feels a bit down...

This is in the historic district of Salvador, which has some beautiful buildings and sights but also can get a little rough around the edges. We stayed here just a night and then moved closer to the beach area. We stayed in the dorm, which is a pretty typical dorm with bunk beds. They give you fresh sheets, although they´re...
