Clearly THE place to stay in Coimbra!


Extremely friendly staff and very good installations!


Great old building and I loved the various areas you could go and chill. The terrace is also a excellent place to relax. Also close to the centre. It fitted the ambiance of Coimbra.


Really great hostel in a perfect location. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were a stand out. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others.


This hostel was very friendly which helped our stay in coimbra become a memorable and positive experience! A simple place but with a little spunk and a nice younger crowd vibe. Easy access to the university.


I had a very pleasent stay at the Grande Hostel de Coimbra. It is closely to the Praça da Républica in the heart of the city. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the house is wonderfull with a great sight at the University of Coimbra. I had a great time there and can just recommend it to everyone who wants to visit Coimbra!

Very good hostel, but clean the fridge!


Very chill, very accommodating folks. The only hostel I stayed at that actually had sufficient lockers. Very enjoyable!


Loved it so much we went back at the end of our trip. The staff is awesome, breakfast is better than usual hostels. Located in a quiet street but still near everything. Coimbra is a really nice city with cheap place to eat, a lot to see and a lot of party place. Would recommend this hostel over any other place we visited during the trip. The outside area is a really nice place to hang for an relax evening. Staff is always there to recommend you something or somewhere to go.


Beautiful rooms, friendly staff, good location. The breakfast was basic, but ok. The toilet and shower are in the same room so when someone is showering you can't go to the toilet...

Owner Comment (Hide)
...at this floor (where are 2 double rooms). In the other floor, there are four showers and three toilets in separated areas. Might have been some misinformation in the check-in, for what we apologize.


Tank you very very much for all your sympathy! Loved the place, the city and the staff.. It's certainly a must comeback, and i will. Special thanks to the owners and the staff!
