    Amazing hostel! Great location, superb staff and the breakfast is top notch. Not your ordinary breakfast- I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious and how every day it was something different from eggs benny to mushroom on toast and the pancakes .. yummy! Adrian from reception is lovely and helpful! Nuno the chef is friendly and makes amazing food. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily so big plus! The garden is huge and has a great feel! Would stay here again and highly recommend!!

    This by far was the best experience I have ever had in a hostel, hotel, or even staying with a family member! The Out-of-the-blue staff are more than welcoming and this is every-single-one-of-them! They made my trip a complete delight with their immense knowledge, attentiveness, magnificent tours, gourmet breakfast, dinner gatherings, willingness to help or just having a conversation. I felt like family right away and I feel that I could spend my whole life living in such a beautiful place.

    Great place! Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms were really clean during our stay. The breakfast and the foods were also varied and tasty. +1 for the garden. It has hammocks in which to chill by yourself. A place for campfires to socialize in the evenings. There's a nice pool and a big table outside to socialize with the other residents. 10/10 would book again

    I had an absolutely fantastic stay. I spend 9 nights in a 6 person room. The room was spacious and clean, with comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. The staff was attentive, helpful and just generally great people to talk to. The complementary breakfast was delicious every single day and we got to eat it in their stunning garden. You could also stay for dinner in the gardens which i did a couple of times. The food was delicious and so were the cocktails. The atmosphere was lovely as well.

    Rita, Sanda and Adrian were the best receptionists, they were knowledgeable about the Island, kind, proactive and amusing. The hostel itself was the best I've been to and I totally recommend Alcatra for dinner on Thursdays. The poached eggs for breakfast made my days and the pool relieved the burning skin of hiking days. I would live here if I could. 😁😝🤩👌👏

    Out of the Blue is a lovely hostel with a beautiful garden and an adorable resident cat. The hammocks in the garden were very much appreciated, as was the outstanding free breakfast
