This is a hostel, not a hotel

This business should not be listed as a hotel, as it is a hostel with substandard conditions. We paid for a "Superior Triple Room" with a balcony, and were assigned a room that only had 2 uncomfortable beds and no balcony to speak of. When we tried to open the curtains, the curtain rod came crashing down, and the window flew open. The only way we could secure it shut was to use a strap from our own suitcases. Had we not done this, we would not have felt safe sleeping there at night or leaving our belongings in the room during the day. Our toilet seat came off the toilet entirely, and the toilet would not flush until we went across the street and purchased a bucket, which we had to fill with water from the shower. The power went out multiple times, so we were forced to take freezing cold showers, and the shower always overflowed. The quality and quantity of the towels were very poor, and the linens did not seem clean. There were no hangers available to hang our things. They advertise WiFi, but the connection was so weak that we could not use it. The most telling aspect of this visit was the fact that we saw an employee in the lobby wearing a "Hostel Porto Salvador" shirt. Exactly. This is not a hotel. It is an overpriced hostel.

Loud, dirty and shower leaked

Only the World Cup lack of rooms would get me to book here.


Ripped off

Paid for most expensive room at highest rate and then given cheapest hostel room and told no other rooms available to change. When asked for reimbursement was told owner wasn't around and staff not authorised to repay. Eventually had to threaten going to police and staff reimbursed 3/4 from their own savings. Think owner was intentionally overbooking and hoping we would just move on. Thank god his staff showed more humanity.

Pros: Nothing. It's a hostel pretending to be a hotel and trying to charge hotel prices for low rent accommodation.

Cons: The owner could accept responsibility for his guests enjoying their stay.

Location: Not as fa nod Barra, City beach but over crowded and too urban. Would recommend staying in Pelourinho instead.
