Property Description

You don't have to be a graduate to visit Coimbra and get to know the students' city, as it is called.

Have a walk around the city and take in the atmosphere of academic traditions, noticing the many student residences (repblicas), the torn academic gowns and the ancient university. Who knows, maybe one day you'll end up studying here! If you enjoy canoeing, then don't miss this opportunity to paddle in the Mondego waters.

But if you are into more alternative sports, then Serra da Lous is the place to practise everything related to mountaineering and adventure. Oh, and don't forget: there are academic parties all year round, with few interruptions.

    Nice quiet place in a neighborhood. Not a lot of space to relax other than your room. Not sure what happened with the water but couldn’t get hot water.

    Nice clean hostel. A bit of a hike up the hill to get there, but had everything that was needed.

    The lady who worked there in the mornings was very nice. Hostel very empty and dead. I found it quite far from the centre. Unlike some other hostels they weren’t open to storing any luggage (I get that this is an extra but it’s so helpful when hostels allow this). Appreciated the breakfast.

    Location is ok, but up long hills walk from centro. Staff is wonderful! No atmosphere, beacause no place to hang out, not lively at all. I would have liked to have access to a kitchen, or at least a microwave, fridge and especially kettle to make tea! Overall I would probably come back but I shortened my stay - two nights max.

    I stayed at this hostel for two nights and I missed the HI vibe. I felt it was a bit gray in general and there are some issues with the toilets/showers (bad smell). A special shout out to the women in charge of the breakfast. They were very friendly. Thank you!

    This hostel was not what we expected. The staff was awesome, all the ladies we met were so sweet, but the place felt run down. My friend and I had a private room and were told we would have a private shower, but we couldn't find it, till we went to the hall bathroom. We walked in and saw urinals and showers with curtains, not stalls, with signs assigning rooms to showers, "private showers". There was not a big community feel here. Also we were nervous to use the space heater in the bedroom

    No lockers for safe keeping of your stuff while out. Bunk beds were very old and unstable, was on the top bunk and there was no where to keep my stuff beside my bed or charge my stuff, (no reading light :( ). Good enough if you just need a spot to stay for a night, but a very dull and Uber atmosphere!

    The hostel really disappointed us with the lack of facilities. The showers looked like they hadn’t been cleaned this century, and not only was there no kitchen, there was no refrigerator either. The staff were nice enough, as was the room, but overall the hostel really let us down; it was clear just from wandering around Coimbra that there are many better places to stay
