WHERE TO STAY IN SALVADOR DA BAHIA
Salvador has so many options that the decision depends on your particular desire. If your major need is to find a young and friendly atmosphere to group up with other travelers then the best place is the hostel or a cheap pousada. On the other hand if privacy is your first feeling it is better to take an apartment. In general Hotels offer more comfort but impersonal service. If your instinct is mixing up with locals to get to know directly the bahian way of living then you have to go after the Favela Republic Project
