Info & Description

The Nega Maluca (Portuguese for the crazy black woman) is actually not a guesthouse. We prefer to call it a family house because here we have no guests. We are all family - the traveller’s family.

The Nega is owned and run by long time travellers for the sole benefit of our other tribe members. It is more a philosophy and a way of life then a business. (You can read the “we believe” part on our internet site). We have tried to put all the experience we have gathered from many years of travelling and sleeping in thousands of guesthouses all around the world, in our home. (The truth is that we mainly learned what not to do). A few little examples of this experience is a personal light for every dorm bed as not to disturb others at night, a personal electricity socket, a shelf for the top bunk beds, enough hangers for your cloths and towel in the room and especially in the showers and of course hot water, with strong pressure, 24 hours a day.

We are located in the Historic centre of Salvador with its cobbled streets and beautifully preserved and painted colonial houses. Our house is on a quite residential street, where locals still sit outside as the evening falls and talk about their neighbour’s life :-))) . We are only 3 min. walk away from the centre of the action where live music and percussion bands play daily, for free, but far enough to enjoy some peace and quite when the party is over and have a good night of sleep. We are a few min. walk from the only supermarket in the area, museums, travel agencies and basically everything you will need for your stay in Salvador

Well, we can sit here and write words and more words but best of all will be just to take a look at what other travellers think about us..

We really hope to host you in our home and for you to become part of our family.
