Lovely place, the room was ample, the bed confortable, located at the heart of the historic center (although that means climbing a few blocks of hills carrying your suitcase). Staff was extremelly friendly and helped finding places to eat late at night and suggesting the best attractions. It got a bit noisy at night, as people spoke loud at the street just outside the bedroom window. The room and the toilet were a bit cold.


This was a superb hostel. We did not expect to have such a warm welcome and satisfying stay at this price. The room was beautiful, clean, and had a nice balcony we spent quite a bit of time on. The view from the hostel is beautiful! They even changed our sheets every day. My only complaint, if any, is that you had to wait about a minute or two for the hot water to come on in the shower.. in other words, I can't complain at all :)


Pessoal 5*, excelente relação preço/qualidade. Muito obrigada pela simpatia e disponibilidade

Great Location, very nice rooms (especially "Genet") and helpful and friendly staff. Well-equipped kitchen, clean showers - the only drawback is the low water pressure in the bathrooms - takes an awful lot of time to wash your hair ;) Altogether a great hostel, we would definitely stay there again!
