Very clean and beautiful. You wouldn't think you are in a hostel at first glance! Lots of nice communal areas. Dead in the centre of town. Walk to everything (up and down the step hill of the city). Very close to the university. Amazingly helpful staff, gave me a map and pointed out everything I might want to see, answered all my questions, and let me store my bag for hours both before and after my stay. Highly recommend.


I recommend this hostel not only to Portuguese who want to visit and enjoy Coimbra but also to Visitors from all around the World, you have nice and tidy accommodations, inside an historical and renewed building just in middle of Coimbra, and all accessible to low budget travellers! Best regards!


Terrific hostel. A little loud in the streets outside at night, but sound proof Windows do a good job of keeping it quiet. A truly unique and awesome building.


We werd really impressed about the building. The renovation is done very beautifully andere the rooms are very impressive. The showers and toilets are comparable to a 4 star hotel!


Excellent location, excellent staff. Would stay there again.


A decent hostel in a beautiful building next to the old cathedral in Coimbra. The hostel is within walking distance of all of the attractions of Coimbra. Breakfast was average, but facilities were good and staff were friendly.


The room was clean and the building is magnifienctly decorated. However, I got really ill one night and the personal didn't help me at all, even when I asked for translations to go to a pharmacy.


This hostel is simply amazing! It looked likuile a 5 star HOTEL! The interior is extremelly well decorated and the building has lots of facilities. If I'm coming back to Coimbra I'll have no doubt about where to stay!


Beautiful hostel in a beautiful spot! Loads of common areas and helpful, friendly staff.


Really nice hostel in a great location for exploring Coimbra. There was a slight smell of drains in our room but I realised that this was coming from up the road and is probably out of the hostel's control and it wasn't too bad. Staff were friendly and efficient and the hostel had everything you need.


Excellent hostel with comfortable bed and bathroom. Situated just next to the main spots. One thing is that the staff was not so welcoming...


Excellent Hostel. The best one I've been so far.


Great hostel, I would stay there again anytime.


The hostel is literally in the top of a hill so its really tiring getting there. Wifi works just ok. Staff dont care much about the guests. The showers are awful, cause when someone is showering, all the water flows from below the door to all the bathroom. So if someone is using the toilet or brushing teeth/etc. will get their feet wet. Beds are cool. Breakfast is good.


Everything's great. I specially loved those warm breads for breakfast.


Bathroom's doors are hard to open. Toothbrush, shampoo, ... are not provided. Chairs in the computer room are not comfortable.


Great location
