This is the worst hostel I've stayed in Portugal. Not up to the standards of the rest of the country. Guests were loud, it was a climb to get into the hostel, there was mold in the bathgrooms, and the whole place showed lack of care. The only highlight was Paolo who was very kind and helpful. He made the stay much more pleasant
My scoring indicates that this hostel is subpar, but that's not the whole picture. In many ways it was more than fine (ok price in a convenient location with staff who were at least trying if not always succeeding) but the facility was a bit rough around the edges
Nice student hostel ! + one of the girl staff is gorgeous (not relevant but I had to day it...)
A great hostel in a great location. Had a good night out in the city and felt like I was in a very secure Hostel with a good entry system.
Really helpful and friendly staff and a well equipped kitchen. Good location, only 5 minutes walk from the university area of Coimbra. There wasn´t a specific computer for guests to use but the staff let me use the one at the desk for as long as I needed to.
Nice hostel, however they have BED BUGS! If you decide to stay closely inspect your bed before sleeping otherwise you will hundreds of itchy bites the next morning.
Vey nice place, great location, good bathrooms and beds, good vibe ;)
This was one of the best hostels I've ever been to. The house is airy and very beautiful, rooms are very nicely furnished, there is a garden terrace and other nice facilities. The staff is super friendly and they really saved our day by offering a shower, breakfast and a bed to lie down far before the usual check-in time when we arrived after two nights in the train. If you visit Coimbra, choose the Grande Hostel!
It is a very nice atmospheric hostel, in a charming old building. Even though the building was old and the atmosphere was not so sterile, the kitchen, the showers, bathrooms and the dorms were nice and clean. The staff gave us some good advices on places to go. It is located near a nice square where there's quite a lot of party going on. There is a nice terrace in the front garden, where it is nice to sit and have a drink. I would definitely recommend this hostel.
When we arrived we where shocked by the hostel entrance. I couldn't believe it, it was like a house in ruins, but then it was fine inside. Everything was clean. The only thing wasn't good was the garden, they should care more about it. It wasn't cheap for being in a small city with not many things to visit.
Really nice hostel and welcoming,a beautiful portugiese girl did really nice check-in. Great garden and barbecue,grilling fish with nice people from Chile,really nice!! Clean and traditional portuguese building. Should go there!!

Very nice hostel, not far from the city center of Coimbra. It's also nice that there's a kitchen (witch is very clean) and small living room. The atmospere is friendly and we were received very warmly by the young man who only just worked there for one day and was very helpful to us! The garden might need a bit of attention to the plants.
This little hostel was great! really clean! It was quite at night so you could get a great nights rest. The staff especially Nuno was amazing! He was so helpful and kind. Really went out of his way to help me and my friend out!! I would recommend this hostel to anyone It has great facilities and it is in good location! Thanks for the great stay :)
Nice Hostel, friendly staff, very good breakfast, i recommend Grande Hostel to stay in Coimbra
The hostel was in a bad condition. The shower was broken, the door lock was broken, too. But it was a nice atmosphere with a nice place to sit outside.
We felt at home in your hostel. Very kind and friendly people, clean and light room, excellent location. Thank you very much for everything, we'll recommend your hostel!
the staff is really helpful, it s clean and safe, I really recommend it!a
It isn't a bad hostel.. But by it's simplicity, we thought it too expensive! The rooms are HOT AS HELL and it is almost impossible to sleep at night because of it. But points for the shower (no the structure, which is horrible) pressure!
I like this hostel very much! Very nice place. Clean and personal, breakfast was good and room fine. Definitely I can recommend this one!
The rooms were bright and had beautiful high ceilings. The beds were comfy. The breakfast was certainly adequate. The staff were very informative, giving us much help, even telephoning to enquire about activities on our behalf. It was a very restful place to spend a few days, and I´d definitely go back.
