Andarilho Hostel Pousada, Salvador
Freshly opened in 2008, this clean, modern hostel is just 218 yards (200 meters), about a 3-minute walk from beautiful Farol da Barra Beach. Refresh yourself in the ocean, see the surfers challenge the waves, and explore the centuries-old lighthouse and fort. At day's end, lean against the fort's weathered stone walls and watch the sun setting over the sea. For calmer, swimmable waters, head 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) to Porto da Barra Beach on the Bay of All Saints. For a change of scenery, take a bus or taxi to Pelourinho, Salvador's famous historical district. Just 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the hostel, Pelourinho is an irresistible blend of Afro-Brazilian music and dance, uniquely Bahian cafés, and cobblestone streets lined with colonial buildings. Visiting during Carnival? Lucky you! Walk just 437 yards (400 meters) from Andarilho Hostel Pousada, and you'll be in the midst of the fun and excitement.
Back at the hostel, you can soak up the sun and chat with fellow guests on the furnished balcony overlooking the street. Start the day with a complimentary breakfast buffet. Later, you can cook up a tasty lunch or dinner--and perhaps share your favorite recipes--in the communal kitchen. Relax in the warmly inviting living room, outfitted with sofas, a TV with a DVD player, and bookshelves with newspapers, magazines, books, and games. There's even a karaoke machine. Other special touches: comfy hammocks, bike and snorkel rentals, a business center featuring complimentary wireless Internet access and a computer for guests’ use (first hour is free). Complimentary newspapers and luggage storage are also available.
The managing partners of Andarilho Hostel Pousada certainly know the business: both have Bachelor of Tourism degrees and travel-agent experience, and one was a professor of hotels and tourism. And, with a maximum capacity of just 36 guests, the hostel provides friendly, personalized service.
