    This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. We were a group of 2 and turned up and had a whole room to ourselves which was amazing. The free breakfast was superb, it was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly. I could not recommend this hostel more :)

    Great but he frequently will tell you that you need to take a different type of room than the one you booked and be convincing. Your alternative is a refund and a recommendation to another hostel.

    Great location inside the old walls. Very close to the center of the city. The AC was nice when it was turned on. On the first night I stayed I didn't have access to the remote to turn it on, and could not find anyone who works there to help me- it made for a hot night.

    Staff was very kind, and they let us leave our stuff there for a day while we went out on a bike tour! They also let us leave the bikes inside the lobby for one night, before we went out on our bike ride. Very accommodating and gracious, great choice and affordable!

    Really cute, homely place. Heating inside the rooms at night which is rare in Portugal and quite necessary in the winters. Comfortable place, and they give you a decent sized locker where you can keep your entire luggage if you travel light. The owner hangs out in the dining area and is very sweet.

    This is a quiet, no frills hostel, but it’s clean, in a great location, and good price. Breakfast is included and is actually pretty extensive. No complaints.

    I had requested/ paid for a private room, as I am elderly. What I got was a room with several bunk beds. Although none of the other beds were occupied as it was not high season it was not what I had in mind. Other than the bunk beds the room had not a piece of furniture.

    The staff and location of this hostel were great, 5 minutes walk and you’re in the centre. However, what Old Évora Hostel don’t tell you is that they have two different buildings. If you’re lucky enough to stay on the main site the hostel seemed nice. We were not so lucky and instead put in the house across the road. This part of the hostel left MUCH to be desired. It was very run down, the kitchen and bathroom were not clean and one of our lockers wouldn’t open. Overall probably a 5/10
