It was great to stay in POP hostel. The location, staff, food , bed ~ and other traveler , All of thing was nice.


Very cool and homely hostel. The design of everything in the hostel is very unique and creative, and the owner even painted the cups in the kitchen herself. A nice chilled atmosphere and a good location. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone going to Braga.

Everything is simply magic in Braga Pop hostel, just advice - if you wanna sleep from 12pm on, do not take a room near the terrace. Other rooms are at the best location with silence.


Pretty great hostel, clean rooms &bathrooms. Only the communal kitchen was dirt, but that's pretty understandable. The location was right on, and if anything was too far the staff would help you find a way there. Only downside was the atmosphere here, it wasn't very friendly or even welcoming. Maybe just the people at the time we went?


The bathroom is way too small (just two showers which u can close only with a curtain) + toilets are very close to it which is annoying The terrace is pleasant great view and the hostel is well located and easy to reach Helena (the owner) is what makes the hostel cool, she is easy going nice positive and helpful The hostel is clean in general but the kitchen is not that clean Breakfast rocks!!


Easy to find and very well located. A 10 minute walk from the train station and almost right in the middle of the city centre. The place is cosy and clean and offers everything you can possibly ask from a hostel. The kitchen and the outside terrace where you can enjoy the simple but good breakfast are very beautiful. The shared bathroom has all you need. The common room has a big tv and the WiFi-connection is perfect. Easy to use lockers available. Super friendly & helpfull staff! Recommended!


At this place you feel like you're at home. I came alone and made friends after 5 minutes. The staff is great!!!! I already recommended it to friends!


Great location for the city. It was a great place to chill out.


Great little hostel ! Friendly staff and guests ! Perfect addition to our weekend! Many thanks


This hostel definitely has my recommendations and my sympathy. It has everything a good hostel should have, well organized house, enough bathrooms/showers, well equipped kitchen, lockers in the dorms. Everything is rather basic, this is no luxury hostel, but it is still perfect for an unspoilt traveler. The staff are sooo relaxed that they will make You feel everything is perfect even if You wake up with bad mood :). Thanks, I had a great stay with You.


We had such a lovely stay with our little 2 years and a half boy. He was so happy and excited to meet so many new people! Helena was so friendly and helpfull to get informations to organise our trip in Braga. We had lot of fun with staff and travellers. Do not miss this adress if you go to Braga!!


Excellent hostel...one of the best.


Good place to spend for couple of days. I loved the staff, they are realy helpful and nice people. Great breakfest, good wifi and nice balcony to chill.


Good accommodation for little money, central location, very helpful staff.


Lovely hostel. Could not fault it. Friendly staff, well located, clean.... great place to stay so highly recommended.


Great and helpful staff, great location (a few meters from the bus station and almost inside the touristic attractions). Breakfast is enough (though in the second day there was basically nothing apart from cereals) and the rooms and beds are clean and good. The problems are just about the bathroom (which is shared, small and uncomfortable), the 53 stairs u need to go through in order to get to the hostel (it's on the 3rd floor, no lift) and the kitchen isn't the best in terms of appearance.


It was a great experience, really enjoyed it, if i gave to vack to braga i would defenetly stay here.

The friendliest & most welcome Staff I ever meet in Portugal. Really good recommendations for food & Sightseeing. The bed was super comfy had difficult to get up it was so peaceful. Really loved the decor at the reception & living room. It has been fab wished I had a few more days here. The only thing I would say is the Kitchen and the Breakfast section looks a bit outdated jut need a bit of TLC, Just looks a little disconnected to the other rooms. Apart from that it was FAB!


Really good hostel, you feel at home there :) nice common room with sofas, movies, board games...there's also a big terrace :) everything is clean and staff are nice, they explain you everything you ask for :)
