the double room was a litle weird, like not suppose to be a room but some plavce to store stuf. The staff was almost not visible so couldnt make too many questions about the city and when we did they didnt know how to help. Is very clean hostel and toilets are fine, even though the glass doors makes you feel a litlle unconfortable. Good breakfast.


The place is well situated and the facilities are nice. But i guess since it was low season it was really calm, so no atmosphere, no bar (even if they publish it...). And sadly all around the buulding is just construction...


I could not believe how nice this gem is! Excellent rooms and bathrooms! Beautiful building!


The suites are in a diferent building than the rest of the dormitories. They are humid and smell bad since the bathroom is too close... Location is good, the old catedral is just outside, but if you have a suitcase with wheels or heavy prepare your self to carry it up in a steep slope and stairs.


I want to come back in Serenata Hostel ! ! !


This place is too nice to be a hostel. Was Amazed by how nice it was. Definitely nicest hostel I have been too in Europe. I would definitely stay again. It was end of season so not many people there which also made it perfect. Has everything you need Dorm Rooms have single beds with lots of room its spacious everywhere even the stairs. Excellent wifi and an adequate breakfast. Would have liked to stay longer.


Hostel itself is impressive, liked the 4 shared bedroom with seperate beds nice breakfast, clean & spacious showercabins close to university; walking & steep climbing took 25 minutes from busstation


Luiz was super friendly and helpful. The bathroom looks very nice but the stylish sink makes it hard to wash your face without splashing water everywhere.


Really good hostel! It's just a little annoying that the front desk stays unattended most of the time.


Absolutely gorgeous hostel, great location right in the centre of the old city, friendly staff, strong WIFI, good breakfast spread, comfy beds. Would definitely recommend.


My room was really comfortable, only with 4 beds and no berth Banks! Every bed has a Switch and a lamp. Lockers inside of the room. Bathroom and kitchen are really clean! Friendly staff and very nice Location! The wooden stairs shine unbelievably well!


This is the best looking hostel ever! So nice! Perfect location, however students sometimes party just outside hostel and may get to noisy for some persons.


Kitchen definitely lacks in organization and supplies. The bunk beds are extra large and pretty comfy. Location is far from the bus station, but close to the University and cathedral. The bus station in itself is outside the city walls and at the bottom of the hill. I recommend taking a taxi upon arrival and then just walking to the bus station when you leave. About 5 euros to get there I think. Very clean, good # of toilets/showers. Didn't get a chance to try the walking tour.


As everyone says, this hostel is a modern and even luxurious one, renovated from a historical relics with modern and brand new facilities, so it's great value for money. Location is perfect, if you don't mind exercise a bit on the stairs everyday, but then you've got the view of the Cathedral. The only small issue is a bit lack of atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful, though more in a way of running business, but I wouldn't mind that much given all the benefits of this place.


Nice hostel. Maybe a bit too big for the number of people who stay? So many common areas it's hard to fill them. But good facilities, great location and staff. I would return.


Great hostel! Liked the interior very much, cozy beds with some privacy, plug and bed light! Nicest bathrooms I have seen in a hostel.


This is a really excellent hostel. I was so impressed with everything. Style, facilities, cleanliness, everything.


pretty basic hostel, nothing worthy of mentioning other than the odd choice of frosted glass cubicles (for showers and toilets) in the unisex bathroom.


it's perfect form every point of view. from the atmosphere to the guys that work there. Just come here


The perfect place to spent few days in Coimbra. A beautiful place in the center of the city very clean, equipped!
