The Açaí Hostel is located in the heart of Pelourinho, the historic centre of Salvador. This beautiful part of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with ornate Renaissance buildings dating from 1549.
Pelourinho is also the centre of Afro Brasilian culture and bustling with life! Vibrant music and dance is everywhere, spilling out on to the cobbled streets from our botecos, restaurants and local homes.
Arrive on a Tuesday and you’ll see local bands whip up a wonderful party atmosphere on the streets. Friday and Saturday are good days for a Samba night.
Local shops, street vendors and crafts people sell uniquely Bahian leather goods, white cotton, lace, colourful textiles, jewellery and musical instruments right here on our doorstep.
Terrero de Jesus is the place to go for local street food: Acaraje and Churrasco. Refresh yourself with Caipirinha made with lime and Cachaca! During the day you’ll see the athleticism of guys from the Forte de Capoeira having a ‘Roda’ here.
