    With a superior location across from famous Barra Beach, the budget-friendly Che Lagarto Hostel Salvador helps you make the most of your Salvador getaway. A favorite with locals and visitors alike, Barra Beach is known for its calm, clear waters and glorious sunsets. You can walk 5 minutes farther along Avenue Oceanica to Farol da Barra Beach with its picturesque lighthouse. The end of the beach, closest to the lighthouse, is rocky with protected pools; while the other end attracts surfers-and those who love to watch.

    Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shops-they're all within a short walk of the hostel. Pelourinho, the historical heart of Salvador and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is 15 minutes away by bus which stops in front of the hotel.

    Visiting Salvador during its spectacular Carnival? The hostel's location on Avenue Oceanica means you'll be right in the middle of all the fun and excitement. In fact, Che Lagarto's new sundeck provides a direct view of the Carnival parade, as well as the New Year's Eve fireworks show.

    Before you head to the beach or the city, get ready with a complimentary breakfast buffet. The selection includes breads, cakes, fresh seasonal fruits, cereals, coffee, tea, and juice. Meet new friends in the bar overlooking the sea and the lighthouse. The bar hosts a daily happy hour with 2-for-1 drinks, plus special evening events with music and food. There's also a TV in the lobby and a kitchen that all guests can use. The hostel provides a roundtrip airport shuttle service for an additional cost, and with 48-hours advance notice.

    The 3-story hostel offers a choice of 12 private or dorm-style guestrooms, all with a private bathroom and cable TV. Air conditioning and windows that open keep you cool. Wireless Internet access is available for a surcharge. Daily housekeeping can be provided.
