I had a super nice stay - and it really was a little bit like "coming home" in the evenings :-) Great atmoshere - and a lot of solo travelers to talk to (when I was here). The owner, Phil, also arranged a barbecue for everybody one night - nice!
The staff of the hostel was super nice! (Edgar, if i remember right, sorry if its not correct). The hostel is a bit far if you decide to walk there but a bus stop (n.40) is just in front of. The facilities are highly sufficient. Definitely recommend :)
I liked very much the welcome and the whole staff. Phil and his colleague Edgar, as well as the other volunteers were particularly nice, organizing diners and outings and giving very usefull advices about Madeira in general. All the facilities and the bed linen were very clean. The only minus point for me was the location, a bit far from the city center, but finnaly I got used to it and I appreciated the walk: the area is nice, because you can see the "real" people of Funchal living there :)
