Beautiful hostel extremely well situated. Brand new showers. Low price. One good thing to know: beware if you come with a car, you'll need to park quite far away.


Very nice hostels, comfortable beds and bathrooms. People are very friendly. No lift in the building, but ask reception man Pedro to take your luggage upstairs and he will do free of charge ;-) Will come back in case of returning to Coimbra!


A great Hostel in a beautiful building. Nice and central location. Not many people were at the hostel when I was there so that's why I'm rating the atmosphere as average. The staff were helpful and friendly


Nicest hostel I have ever seen and it's right in the same square as the cathedral. Very spacious dorm room and the whole hotel is new and renovated with every detail showing the quality of a nice hotel. Breakfast was way better than any other hostel I stayed in as well. Most of the rooms are private like a normal hotel and I saw room prices for 60 and 80 euros. Incredible value for this accommodation I think I paid only 16 euros.


Very quite, Very big almost a luxury hostel really. Felt like a hote,. Some annoying things like you had to put your key in the slot for the electricity to work so you can;t charge things whilst you are out of the room. The kitchen is more for show than practical use. The bathrooms are a bit strange. I would stay again but just don't expect any great lively events in this hostel despite how clean cut and nice it is.


When my friend and I first got to this hostel, we thought we were at the wrong place. It looks like a luxurious hotel… it is very nice, but it is definitely not a hostel atmosphere. Showers were great, breakfast was good (but the kitchen is tiny compared to the rest of the hostel). People were a little older too; so there was no loud music during the night or anything. The hostel couldn't be located at a better spot tho, so that was really great. If I were on a romantic getaway, I would go back.


Very clean hostel, and good bed, I enjoyed my stay there!


Serenata was a great hostel. Really good breakfast and good bunks with personal lights and outlets. Prime location but loud at night it's right next to a few bars


A beautiful hostel. perfect for if you want to relax. There wasnt much of an atmosphere when i was there as the hostel was quite empty. The staff are also very nice and helpful but a little shy. If they were more outgoing the atmosphere might be better?


The guy in the room next to us who shared our bathroom kept peeing on the floor in the shared bathroom and the sink did not work very well.


Best location in town and the hostel is super clean! Also they have a good free breakfast and huge rooms...Definetly would recommend it


The hostel was awesome - beautiful building, great rooms, I had an amazing view from my little balcony. Very clean. Huge common rooms, a nice terrace. The kitchen was too small though, only one pot and pan so you had to wait if anyone else was cooking. I was travelling alone, off-season, and it was hard to meet other travellers, no one seemed too communicative. Staff was very helpful though. If you're travelling in a group I would totally recommend this place.


Most amazing shower I've ever had at a hostel! The beds were comfortable and I really liked how the rooms were decorated with character! Breakfast was good but crowded. This hostel has everything you need and more! Would definitely stay here again if I return to Coimbra.


Fantastic thank you very nice place...


Stunning hostel in a superbly refurbished old building. Beautiful dorms equipped with everything you need as a traveller. A superb place to stay with extremely friendly staff. Highly highly recommended.


The staff were fun to talk to and knew great places to recommend. The location was near the old sites although a bit far from the bus station (although the taxi wasn't too expensive). The breakfast was included in the morning, which is always a good thing!


The hostel is located next to the square where the students party, so bring earplugs. The hostel has the best showers I ever experienced (including my home and 4* hotels) and it is very clean. Nice breakfast also. When I visited there were few guests, so no special atmosphere and hard to judge on.


Incredible, it's a hotel for the price of a hostel and at the best location possible, you get to see the cathedral every morning when you open the window. Staff is great too.


Beautiful arranged (the original even much is better than the online pictures!) with terraces and nice views in the city! Very clean! And the young receptionist was really helpful! Also the breakfast at the terrace was quite huge (marmalades, cornflakes, cheese, ham, honey, tee, coffee, juices, different sorts of beard). All in all we had a wonderful stay, I'd choose it always again!


The facilities of the hostel plus its breakfast are unbelievable for the price!! The facilities are in my top 3 of the whole hostels that I've stayed. It's the best location to go partying! Tuesdays and thursdays are the best days to go out at night! =)
