    i just loved this hostel. The staff is lovely, the view on Funchal is breathtaking, the property is clean and has all facilities needed and the atmosphere is chilled and friendly. It is located 2 minutes walking to a bus stop which makes it easy for guests to get to Funchal city center. Breakfast is delicious. I can’t think about a better place to stay in Madeira, I will definitely be back!

    Awesome place, attentive staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, and amazing views! It'd be hard to stay here if you don't rent a car though.

    Best hostel experience so far!!!!! Great staff, super friendly, beautiful views, awesome guests, really cool layout of the building. Couldn't have picked a better location to check out Madeira. Just outside of the bustle of town but easy to get around. Close to the major hikes. Definitely will stay here again when I visit the island in the future.

    Outstanding views both from the common area and dormitory. Very clean and a pretty good breakfast. The beds are very comfortable and clean and the bathroom and shower also pretty good. You have to get used to the steep roads to the hostel and bus timetable but otherwise a great location!!

    Edgar is the most genuine and caring hostel host. I am honestly privileged to have stayed at Maderia Happy Hostel. Everyday Edgar is more than happy to provide you with recommendations to explore different parts of the island and really take in all the beauty Maderia has to offer. Maderia Happy Hostel has the best views of all downtown Funchal and is a 10 min bus ride from the city centre, I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to take a trip to Maderia!

    Elisabeth and her partner (Kevin) are great. They waited for me to arrive, were kind enough to give full explanation on the things I should do and provided terrific breakfast. In Funchal its defenetly a place to stay in. The beds are comfy, the linen are very clean, and the kitchen is fully equipped if you choose to cook your own meals (although breakfast is included). The hostel currently has 10 beds so don't expect a major party venue. Yet, the view cannot be beaten!!

    Highs: view is incredible, breakfast is nice (a slice of meat & cheese, a bread roll, yogurt, juice, & coffee or tea), bus stop near by, Edgar is very nice, & atmosphere is good Lows: difficult to get to without a car, bus only runs to & from the city center a few times/day, FREEZING at night (I stayed in January & wore three layers, a jacket, & mittens & was still cold even with an extra blanket. Other guests had the same experience as me), & no security to get into the hostel or lockers

    The hostel is nicely tucked into the hills with a great view of Funchal. This implies that you should get a car, otherwise you depend on a scarcely operated local bus, which is not ideal. The hostel itself is nice and clean, but there is definitely room for improvement - for example having lockers would be great. Additionally, communication could have been better, such as letting the guests know when exactly the breakfast is (the times were inconsistent), having a better key system, etc.

    The 6-dorm looked like something you don't have to pay for and I had to share it with 5 violent old men. I chose this place for the rave reviews and the vibe, but what vibe? Who were the staff and where were they? No one ever introduced themselves and I take it they were at the terrace the entire time. The girl who checked me in didn't speak a letter English and wasn't more than:here key, here room! Had to discover just about everything else myself. Would be a lie if I gave this a higher rating
