We are located at just two blocks from the Carnival Parade. But at Alpha Hostel you will sleep quietly when coming back from Carnival partying. After all, you will need to rest before going back to Carnival partying the next day! We are also located in the same block as the best shopping mall of Salvador, and all our staff is local. This means that they know every single spot that Salvador-Bahia has to offer you, together with hints and directions that only those true born and bred in Salvador may offer to let you enjoy the best of Bahia. Come to check on us! ============================================== We chose Barra -- the safest and most fashionable neighborhood of Salvador, where past and present cross - to open a second Alpha Hostel in Brazil. There we found a beatiful and well built house from the 50s that still kept its marble and wooden floors, and had a spacious backyard sorrounded by flower gardens. We reformed this second home of Alpha Hostel just to give more comfort to our guests while maintaining the elegant atmosphere and generous design of times past. In addition to two dorms and two private rooms, we provide twelve suites - a flexible mix to tend to everyone, from single guests to groups of all ages and families. Altogether, we have seventeen showers offering hot water which comes from a solar heating system and a state-of-the-art boiler equipment. By using new technologies and materials and keeping the original blue print of the house, we wanted to ensure that our guests would enjoy staying home, relaxing and mingling in our roomy lounge or our backyard gazebo, or using our internet and Wi-Fi services, or cooking in a fully equipped kitchen. Such splendid house is extremely well located. Alpha Hostel´s guests will feel at home walking through the fiendly neighborhood, or going out to surf in the best beach in town - Praia da Barra - located just two small blocks away from us. Barra is known for its variety of restaurants, bars, and places with live music, where interesting and joyous people meet. Also, within walking distance from Alpha Hostel, guests will find supermarkets, bakery shops, fruit markets, and convenience stores of all sorts. To close, Alpha Hostel is located in the same block of modern and huge Shopping da Barra while being 10 minutes away, by bus, from Pelourinho (the Historic Center). For those who want to discover the fantastic Carnival of Salvador, during Carnival period Barra turns itself into a huge party, with street balls and Trio Elétrico parades. For New Year´s party, Praia da Barra is the Salvador choice location for a great firecracker show and a music concert. House and location would not be sufficient to name the hostel an Alpha. Our staff is key to provide quality service to our guests.
