Nice Hostel and B&B
We did not stay there but checked out the facility. Location is central and there is a small restaurant.
You can have shared Hostel facilities or B&B with private bath. It could be a bit noisy but no problem if you are young and stay up late! the staff was very helpful.
Unique Quality: /?and B&B in center of Historic Pelourinho
Seemed to be booked and very busy during the Jan/Feb high season. Would recommend booking ahead.

Best in Pelourinho
I wasn't there sleeping but it seemed more comfortable and in a quieter possition than any other in town. it is on top of Pelourinho but not in the Middle of the noisy streets, so its easy to sleep specially on weekends and Tuesdays. If I would be back in Salvador, I defenetly would come here.
Unique Quality: Its recently remodelated, seemed very clean and pleasent also the staff was friendly. you don't have to go uphill or downhill so is easy reaching.
