I came to Bahia to do my Phd research. I needed a place to stay for a year, where I could work at home in my thesis and also be near the university campus (UFBA).
For me it was important to have market, bus station, everything near me, in a way that my daily basis was practical and operational.
The neighborhood is quiet, a 5 minute walk from the beach, near the shopping mall that has a lot of facilities in it. Close to a big supermarket, and also have a 24h convenience store just around the corner.
Junior, the hostess, is adorable. Since I was staying for a year, I needed a lot of information regarding services and tips regarding Salvador, and he always helped me immediately. When the washing machine stopped working, he promptly bought a new one and replaced it for me.
What can I say? It was a cozy place, near everything, with a great support (for a student from another city), placed in a very calm spot, but still near everything for a single survival in the city.
Thanks a lot, Junior. For me, it was 5 stars.
