Description de l’établissement

The Nega is owned and run by long-time travelers for the sole benefit of our other tribe members. It is more a philosophy and a way of life than a business. (You can read the 'we believe' part on our internet site). We have tried to put all the experience we have gathered from many years of traveling and sleeping in thousands of guesthouses all around the world, in our home. (The truth is that we mainly learned what not to do). A few little examples of this experience is a personal light for every dorm bed as not to disturb others at night, a personal electricity socket, a shelf for the top bunk beds, enough hangers for your clothes and towel in the room and especially in the showers and of course hot water, with strong pressure, 24 hours a day.

Since many travelers love the word free, here are some of the Free :-) services we offer :

- Free bed sheets
- Free towels
- Free WiFi
- Free safe deposit boxes in all dorm rooms
- Free use of our fully equipped kitchen
- Free spices and oil for cooking
- Free filtered drinking water
- Free smiles
- Free exchange library
- Free luggage storage
- Free soap for self-laundry washing
- Free and complete travel information about Salvador and the area.
- Free use of the hostel after checkout, until 22:30, including showers and wi fi.
- Free Coffee all-day
- Free taxi booking
- Free games and playing cards
- Free bus ticket booking (the bus company charges around R$10 for delivering them)
- Free booking for Moro de Sao Paulo catamaran tickets
- Free Booking of Candomble (afro-Brazilian religion) ceremony with a private guide (and not a travel agency that personally we don't trust 2 much)
- Free booking for onward hostels of your choice
- Free food delivery

Other services, and forgive us some are not free yet, are:
- Currency exchange
- Laundry services
- Bar
- Outside balcony with hammocks
- Nargilas/water pipes/Shisha/Huka
- English speaking staff
- Security guard at night
- 2 cats and a dog (They are all in animals heaven now. Age. Had a good life thought)
- Airport pickup (R$120)
- No curfew, no lockout
- Check-In time 13:00hs
- Check-Out time 12:00hs

Despite the above, there is much more to traveling than just staying at a hostel that offers you all these great services for free. As travelers, the moment we left our home country we have in a way made the entire world part of our life now. We can no longer ignore the situation in Zimbabwe, the hunger in Brazil, the genocide in Darfur, cutting down the rainforest, pollution, global heating and unfortunately the list is endless. I know, we all have that feeling that we, the small individual cannot do anything about these big issues but as Obama said in his election campaign, YES WE CAN!

We here in the Nega Maluca have been for years helping poor families in our neighborhood with basic food supplies financed from our money and donations travelers left for this cause. It is time to think bigger. We have stopped using plastic bags and now have recycled bags for the use of our guests when they go to the Supermarket. We are sponsoring on a monthly basis an orphan child in Mozambique whose parents died from aids (www.sos-childrensvillages.org). It takes only $1 a day to change a Child's life (less than a bottle of beer) and there is still so much more we can do. By staying in our guesthouse you are directly helping in these causes because part of all income is set aside for these matters.

Don't get us wrong. Even if you don't stay with us, we will still continue financing these projects and looking for new ways we can contribute as these are our principles and beliefs in life and they are much more important than more or fewer guests in our house. However, together with you, we can do much more than we can alone.

We are located in the historic center of Salvador with its cobbled streets and beautifully preserved and painted colonial houses. Our house is on a quiet residential street, where locals still sit outside as the evening falls and talk about their neighbor's life :-). We are only 3 min. walk away from the center of the action where live music and percussion bands play daily, for free, but far enough to enjoy some peace and quiet when the party is over and have a good night of sleep. We are a few min. walk from the only supermarket in the area, museums, travel agencies and basically everything you will need for your stay in Salvador.

We really hope to host you in our home and for you to become part of our family.

Inbal & the rest of the gang

Note: All doubles are air-conditioned as are the 8 bed mixed dorms + 1 of the 10-bed dorms. We left 1 dorm room with fans to give an option to those who are not fond of air-con. or want a more economical option.

Last note. Promise: Payment in the hostel is in cash only. We do not accept any credit cards.

Reservations of beds in a dorm do not require any payment in advance. For private bedrooms, since we have only three, the first night must be paid in advance to secure the reservation.

NEW YEAR 2022

Please note: When it says here on the site 12-bed dorm it means 12 hammocks on our covered roof!!! Please be aware
