    I stayed here for a week and it was perfect for my needs. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, a selection of breads, cheese, jams, cereals and fruit. Location was super and close to everything. I loved having the curtain beds which gave you privacy. The island is just stunning. One of my favourite weeks :-)

    We loved our stay at A Bica - great location, free spots for parking, breakfast, wi-fi, etc. Ana was such a great help and let us know what to see/where to go. She also let us drop off our bags when we arrived before check-in and was extremely accommodating throughout the weekend. The space is beautiful and clean, and you feel completely safe, both with the staff and the fellow travelers. The bathrooms and security lockers are also top-notch. I would definitely stay here again.

    The hostel was cozy and roomy. It was always clean and we felt at home. The best part was the staff, though. They let us into our room early when we arrived and let us pack up some breakfast food when we left. They always helped us call taxis and make arrangements. This was such a great hostel.

    We had a very nice stay in the triple room with private bathroom — perfect for a family of three. With the private bath, the place felt more like a hotel than a hostel. The room even has a balcony and view of the water. Very stylish and clean/minimalist design throughout the hotel. Bed was pretty comfortable — could use a fluffier pillow. Bathroom was small but well-designed and had nice bath products, towels, and hair dryer. Staff was great, and even arranged an early morning taxi to airport.

    A beautiful hostel that is for those who appreciate and are looking for a more luxury stay. Not for party people or those looking to connect and make friends. It is quiet and super clean, to the point of almost being too sterile! But it is beautiful and you can tell how much care has been put into renovating the building. Beds are comfy and there is good storage underneath. Location is spot on, and the breakfast is fine. Coffee is truly awful though so suggest you bring your own, or go out :-)
