    Lonely Planet review

    This fantastically colorful and homey place is run by professional artists with deep connections with the local music, dance and film community. Musicians and capoeira demonstrations periodically take place at the hostel, especially during Carnaval, when the guesthouse offers one of Salvador's most memorable party experiences.

    Our independent authors have visited Open House Barra and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Salvador.
