We stayed at Nega Malucca in a private room with AC for two nights. First and foremost, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! They provided us with great recommendations of things to do in the Pelourinho and helped us get around town (and to our next destination). The hostel is well-located, a walk away from the main square, and in a well lit area that we felt safe returning to at night. Breakfast was simple, but very ample. The hangout/breakfast area out back was very comfortable and nice.
However, our room left much to desire. The bed took up much of the space in our room and it was a challenge to fit two people and our bags in the remaining space and opening and closing the door. The room also had a few windows to common areas that were hard/impossible to lock, which made the room feel not secure. Furthermore, the shared bathroom was located downstairs, which was a pain at night.
Overall, although the staff was wonderful and the hostel vibe was positive, we thought that the quality of the room should have been much higher, considering how much we paid. More
