Great stay


Great location near Praça da Republica, friendly staff, clean rooms and a nice garden.


Great place and great atmospheare. Not a fancy place but a real hostel!


Location not too bad, included breakfast was the usual toast and cereal, staff were friendly, but unlike some hostels, they dont really suggest things to do or see around the town. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were good, would stay here again if i was passing through Coimbra again


Very friendly, accommodating staff. Great location - very central and lots of atmosphere, nice bars, etc. nearby. Clean, comfortable rooms and well-equipped kitchen. The only downer was the noise. I'm not sure if there was a one-off party going on, but the hostel is so near bars and restaurants that there is quite a lot of noise throughout the night, but that's to be expected with such a central location. Would stay here again.

One thing you should fix: the lockers. They are pretty useful in any case.


Good: Nice outdoor spaces, nice kitchen, nice lounge. Could improve: Ban smoking in more areas. It was quite hard to get away from the smoke, and some staff seemed to be allowing drugs to be smoked on the premises. One member of staff even told some guests they could smoke on the tiny balcony on the first floor, from where smoke inevitably blows straight in to dorm rooms. Also, security was pretty poor during the day. The front gate always open, the front door generally open. More could be done


Fantastic place and fantastic staf in hostel. Hope ill get back one day :-)


Good hostel to stay for one night. Andre is a nice and helpfull guy.


I loved it! Very nice and chill place.


Very cool hostel. Lovely staff. And it has lots of places to sit outside and enjoy the sun.


The staff was super friendly and helpful and really made me feel welcome. The common area was great and the kitchen facility was very nice. The bathrooms were also nice and clean and I really enjoyed my stay here. This was my favorite hostel that I stayed at in Portugal!


Nice hostel. Very quiet when I was there


It was a nice old styled hostel. great location being near the city and high up on a hill


Nice hostel with a wide setup dorm. It was really quiet so as for a solo traveller in low season not the best option. No breakfast (or late breakfast?) on weekends which was a pity, since I had counted on it before setting off again. But overall a nice hostel with clean facilities.


this is more like a house with big bedrooms upstairs. the guy working here was quite rude at times and some guy who lives here just takes over the common room all day everyday until he goes back to bed


An awesome hostel, in a great location with really good facilities. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.


Bizarre yet lovely staff! Cute hippy vibe with nice wall murals and a generous breakfast.


Charming little place, with very friendly staff. Double room was spacious and comfortable and quite cheap. Location is a bit of a walk from the train station, but otherwise fairly close to the sights. Not the best place to meet people, but was fine for us.


Not a bad hostel. Spacious private room - although a fair bit of a walk from the main sights and restaurants etc.
