Newly opened in February 2009, Santeria Hostel Bar's position is certainly one of the most impressive in Salvador. Located just north of Barra towards the exclusive Vitoria district, the hostel has a stunning rooftop bar with an elevated view over the Todos os Santos bay. Here you can enjoy breakfast with the kind of views only hotels can usually boast, and into the evening the bar becomes one of the most stylish in the area, with Asian-inspired decor varying in colour scheme inside, a large outdoor terrace with bay views and inventive food offered to hostel guests and the public.

The hostel is named after the 'All Saints' bay which it looks out over, and is adorned with colourful images and decorations of the saints of various religions, with communal areas that are all bright, cheery and modern in design, including a spacious lobby with large wood table with lifestyle magazines and a front outdoor terrace.
There are five rooms in total. One 10-bed male dorm has excellent bay views costing R$34 per person, one 9-bed female dorm costs R$34 per person. There is one 6-bed and one 4-bed dorm which can both be used for individuals or groups and are priced accordingly (approximately R$42 per person). These rooms have shared bathroom. One private (can be twin or double) has a private bathroom and costs R£100 per room, including towels. All prices include breakfast. Towels can be hired for R$4 per stay. Prices shown are for low season and prices are approximately R$7 per person higher Jul-Aug and Nov-Mar.
Breakfast is served from 7.30-10am in the rooftop bar area and includes coffee, hot chocolate, fresh fruit, fruit juices, bread, cheese, ham, jams and cakes. There is a guest kitchen located on the ground floor with fridge freezer, oven with hobs and microwave.
