No doubt the friendliest place on the island and a joy to stay there. The multilingual owner is a font of knowledge about what to do on the island. Best backpackers hostel at which I have stayed in Europe. He also does a marvellous rum punch


I stayed at Phil's Haven for several days whilst I was preparing to run an ultramarathon in Madeira and I had a great time there! The hostel is clean, fun friendly and the owners are just fantastic. Phil and his partner Anna take a real interest in their guests and go out of their way to try and help you. I would really recommend this hostel to anyone that is travelling to Madeira - and I will be back again :)
