Different kind of hostel, more like a hotel. But still it was a nice place to stay, the people I've met where great and I had a great time. Nice city, friendly people, enough to see. The wifi connection in the hostel is not good, I had to enter the code again and again.

Thanks for the kind words Bartsje :) The problem with the wifi connection is already resolved. We wish you safe travels!


Great hostel, super cheap, location perfect. Atmosphere was not great, but we were there out of season so it was pretty much just us.

Thanks for the kind words Bernd :D During low season the atmosphere is a little bit down in here, but it changes completely during Queima das Fitas or Summer season. You've to come back and experience it! Safe travels!


Good hostel. Nothing special about it. No activities. But good and clean place.

Thank you for your kind words Santiago! Hope to see you soon! Safe travels :)


You really couldn't wish for a better location right in the center of Coimbra. It's a very beautiful monumental building which is well kept. The breakfast is quite decent and the sanitary facilities look quite good, though they weren't always very clean. The main gripe I had was that it was very quit. Nothing of note was going on and interacting with other guests didn't go very well. Also, there was little social interaction with the staff. Maybe it was the time of the year though.

Thank you for your words Meindert. During the low season we are not so busy and we understand your point. Come back during the Summer and you will experience a completely different atmosphere :) Safe travels :)


Very secure, great breakfast, its close to everything, although it was at the highest place of the city, so you have to walk up the hill a lot before getting there. But the staff at late afternoon/night wasn't friendly at all, and the internet wireless was very weak.

Thanks for your review Karine :) As you saw, Coimbra is the city of the hills! The internet conexion is already working in his maximum power. Safe travels!
