    Beautiful hostel five minutes walk from the bus station and shopping centre. Add another 10 minutes to the railway station. The main square is 2 minutes walk away with a load of bars / restaurants etc... The staff were extremely helpful and the building is absolutely spotless. Huge kitchen and lounge area for cooking, using the internet , chilling etc.....I was there for 4 nights in June 2019 for the two England football matches . Really glad I chose this hostel.

    The hostel is run by a family. They are SUPER SUPER SUPER NICE and very informative. They are very excited about their city and they are a wealth of information about their city and their country. The hostel kitchen is extremely well equipped and it is very clean. Great value for money. It is close to the bus station and historic center. Both are an easy walk. The only downside (maybe) is that the room was a bit hot. They could use a few working fans in the summer. Other than that, I LOVE it!

    The location was very good and the room and bathroom was very clean. The staff was available by phone when we were there, they had just experienced a very busy month with full bookings, so I understand the lack of service. I do recommend this hostel for a visit to Guimaraes.

    It said that the reception would open at 10am, but at 1:30pm when we left it was still closed, quite unprofessional. Other than that it's an acceptable hostel for the price, centrally located and clean enough. There are no plugs easily accesible from the top bunks, and at night the interior feels kind of creepy for some reason.
