Really nice place. On a quiet street but central. Big lounge room with TV and also with a lot of books and magazines. Kitchen was always clean and there is a big balcony that has fabulous views of Braga. Helena is always willing to offer tips about Braga and was very cheerful.


I really enjoyed my stay, the staff was so helpful and welcoming. Braga is a beautiful city and my experience was a great one thanks to all the tips I got from the staff. You will love staying at this hostel that feels like you are home with how cozy it is.


The owner is really nice and helpful, and she ,akes you feel at home! Breakfast was simple but really good, with homemade jam and yogurt (miam)! And the hostel is just outside the old town, but still really close to everything and right next to the bus station to the Bom Jesus sanctuary (the church you want to see in Braga, 5km from the town). The only thing was that people didn't clean their stuff in the kitchen and it just pilled up in the sink... but the rest of the facilities were clean!


Very friendly staff !!

Really lovely hostel. Welcoming, clean, friendly staff. Nice facilities and close to the centre of Braga. The rooms are spacious and good quality beds. Would definitely recommend.


The best hostal i've stayed in so far! Great and relaxed atmosphere, really nice people who work there, always helpful in whatever matter. Great location, in the city center and close to the bus station. Has breakfast included which you take on the balcony...also there were jam sessions and chilling out together with other people from the hostal the days I spent there. Highly recomandable!


Excellent hostel. really close to the downtown and bus terminal. Bit far from train station but easily walkable to the staion. The room and living room, terrace, colorful area, nice breakfast were cool. I couldn't feel alone in the hostel. And love Braga, the pops hostel. I would like to stay in the hostel again if i returned to Braga


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.


nice hostel highly recomended

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!!
