    Staying in this hostel for sure made our experience in Coimbra unforgettable. All of the hosts were amazing. Claudia was very patient and listened to what we wanted to see in the city and gave us suggestions based on what we want. She recommended a wonderful restaurant in town that we absolutely loved. This hostel made us feel like we were at home :)

    This hostel wonderful! I felt it was right in the heart of Coimbra - there was a charming festival right outside the morning I left and it is close to the university. My bathroom had a broken air fan that they fixed right away. You will enjoy your stay here!!

    I was here for two nights and enjoyed my stay here. Everything you need to see in Coimbra is within walking distance, but beware of the incline and stairs if you’re lugging around luggage. There’s a little cafe right next to the hostel with outside seating available. The staff are extremely friendly, probably the most friendliest hostel staff members I’ve met during my travels in Portugal. Would definitely recommend!

    This may have been my favorite place I stayed in Portugal. We had private room with a view of the old cathedral. Staff could not have been more helpful in directing us to vegetarian food and to fun activities during our stay as well as calling us a taxi to the train station. The room was charming and clean with comfy beds, great window covering for a dark room for sleep, and air conditioning that worked great. We could walk very easily from here to everything we wanted to do.

    The hostel is very close to the University of Coimbra (around 5 minutes by walking) and it's not hard to reach it from the main bus station of the city. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel's facilities are cosy enough for a short stay. With no doubts, I recommend it.

    It was absolutely beautiful. Quiet and not easy to meet other people but everyone working there is lovely and the place itself is beautiful and close to everything you need.

    I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Coimbra. It's a bit of a hike up to the hostel from the train station, but area is beautiful and the hostel is in a large square with a church in the middle. We stayed in a private room which was exceptionally clean, spacious, and offered more amenities than we had expected. We wish we stayed longer!

    Great stay, nice place! The lockers in the room weren’t big enough for my bag but I felt safe enough regardless.
