The Nega Maluca guesthouse, meaning in Portuguese "The crazy black woman", is actually not a guesthouse. We prefer to call it a family house because here we don't have guests - only family members. The traveler's family.
Owned and run by travelers, we have tried to put into our home all the experience we have gathered through the years of traveling and sleeping in thousands of guesthouses all around the world. Each bed in the dormitory, for example, has its own night light so reading at night doesn't bother others, personal safe boxes in the room, free filtered drinking water and a beautiful recreation area, including a balcony with plants and hammocks, were people can read and socialize are only some of the features the Nega offers.
We have also tried to eliminate the little annoying things many places have like charging for linen, charging for receiving phone calls, curfews, no place to hang towels in the rooms and showers and many others.
Located in a colonial house on a quiet residential street leading to the historic neighborhood of Pelourinho, the Nega Maluca offers mainly dormitory rooms but has also doubles and a single. A fully equipped kitchen caters to all our family member's needs.
Each dormitory room consist of 6-10 beds each. All the dorms are mixed except one that is exclusively reserved for women. Each room has a designed wall painted in a unique color and this is also how the rooms get their names. The purple room, peach, orange etc.
Your security is very important to us. We have double front doors, the external made from Metal, Security camera over the front door, a guard during the busy season, metal bars on lower windows, personal safe boxes in the rooms and we even trained Stomp the cat as a guard cat…..;-)))
Going from one place to another of Salvador is very easy, since we are located very close to a bus station with buses going everywhere. Taxis are found just walking out the door.
This way you can be in just a few minutes almost anywhere in the modern part of the city, shopping centers, and the beautiful beaches of Salvador and its surroundings.
Well, we can sit here and write words and more words but there is nothing like taking a look. That is why we guarantee that if you don't like our home we will take you, free, to any other place of your choice in the area.
We really hope to host you in our home and for you to be part of our family.
