Nelson is a great peerson and was very helpfull and servicial in everything we needed. The hostel was perfect and we had a great time in evora. The location was also amazing!!


Thanks to the friendly host for good advice and service.


Absolutely amazing hostel in a must see city! Everything in the hostel is impecably taken care by the owner, who is always willing to help the visitors. Don't miss the fabulous sunset view from the terrace, and, only if you're very fit, visit the megalits by bike.


Super clean and super location. The hostel is in the main square of Evora and all the main spots are easily accessable from the hostel. Plus, the owner, Nelson, is very friendly and welcoming.


Location of the hostel is in the square next to everything, which is awesome. The place looked new and was very clean. Plus the owner was really kind and helpful. Only down side if you go during low season, there isn't a lot of people so the atmosphere is really quiet.


Excellent location, nice friendly and helpful owner.


Wonderful place to stay! Excellent location just on the main square. Very clean! Very helpful staff! I would stay there again.

Right in the middle of the old town, close to all the sights, plus a rooftop with gorgeous view over the piazza at night. The owner is lovely and really helpful. Atmosphere is moderately social - not a party hostel, but you'll make friends. Laid-back. WIFI, hot water, breakfast of tea, coffee, breads & spreads and cookies. Would recommend for backpackers.


Probably the best place to stay in Evora ... Absolutely in the center of the old city ... All places are less than 10 minutes walking ... Staff is the best we meet in Portugal, He say to us where to go to see, visit, taste, eat and drink ... Each are fantastic places to eat really good and local for less than 10€, to discover places like Monsaraz, or to drink like the bar just near the hostel in a museum ... We highly recommend this hostel ... The breakfast is extra and the rooms are quiet


The hostel owner Nelson was very knowledgeable about the area and its history and gives you a rundown on the town on your arrival. He is also able to help you book anything in and around the town, including working out which buses you need to catch to them! He goes above and beyond to make your stay positive. The hostel itself was very clean and quiet and very comfy. The terrace is amazing to sit on and eat your dinner and watch the sun go down. I would definitely stay here again.


Couldn't use water at all in the morning somehow. (Only on one of the days we stayed there) located in very centre and easy to do sightseeing

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, Sorry for the inconvenience. The reason was because there was a general cut in supplies to the city, to which the hostel is oblivious.


Couldn't get a better located hostel in Evora. Walking distance from train/bus stations and right on the main square. Nelson was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed including the latest bus times to our next destination. Our private room was simple, clean and quiet. All round great value hostel! Thanks!


Excellent location right on the main square of the city and the owner really knows its town. The hostel is clean and have a good kitchen that's also really clean. The only thing is that it could use an other bathroom but you forget that when you look at the view from the rooftop terrace!


Very nice stuff, perfect location.
