The NegaMaluca guesthouse, meaning in Portuguese "The crazy black woman", is located in a colonial house on a quiet residential street leading to the historic neighborhood of Pelourinho.
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 relax, read and socialize are only some of the features the Nega offers.
