Property Description

The Serenata Hostel introduces a new standard of quality for Hostels!

Come experience the quality of an Hotel with prices of an Hostel.

Dating from the early 20TH century, the building where today is Serenata Hostel, was once the Bissaya Barreto’s maternity and subsequently the Music Conservatory of Coimbra. However, the building was completely restored and ready to receive you.

We couldn't have asked for a better combination: Life and music!

Meet people from all corners of the world, leveraging our social dinners and the pubcrawl.

We are located in the heart of Coimbra, at Largo da Sé Velha (UNESCO World Heritage), close to all the attractions of our city. Our location allows our guests to move around without needing to resort to public transportation.

We are 5 and 10 minutes of train and bus stations, respectively, one minute from the University of Coimbra, UNESCO World Heritage , and literally next to the biggest historical attraction of Coimbra, the old catedral, Sé Velha. You can wake up, open the window and admire this magnificent architectural masterpiece!

We have different types of rooms to choose from: from bedrooms, double and twin rooms, to suites.

A traditional breakfast is served in our dining room. You can save money by preparing your meals in our fully equipped kitchen.

Our guests can take advantage of our bar and also use our two common living rooms equipped with flat-screen TVs, karaoke and games. Enjoy and relax in our disposal 2 terraces: one covered and the other outdoors.

So you can relax and enjoy the most academic city of Portugal, one of the cities most identified by Fado, full of history and tradition.

Love music, live life! View House Rules

    Beautiful hostel, the location is on the center of old Coimbra, near the university - that is good because it's close to points of interest, but is bad because there are too many bells so it's hard to sleep Also, the room is great, bed is comfortable, but you need to leave a key card on the holder near the door to electricity, which is somewhat annoying, and the pillow could be better too

    Atmosphere was very quiet, but quite fitting with Coimbra - bit off the beaten track, and encourages you to get out and socialise with the local uni students. Set just below the university on a hill overlooking the river, on a sunny day the area and its view are spectacular. The building itself was also a hugely pleasant surprise.

    Rooms are very beautiful with own plugs and nightlight, good breakfast and friendly people. Location is very good as well, just near the old cathedral en close to the university. There weren’t a lot of guests when I was there because of low season, but I’m sure it’s a good hostel to meet people when travelling solo at other times of the year since there’s a big terrace and also chill out places in the rooms. Very good price and value :)

    I visited the Seranata Hostel this spring. It is located close the the university. I would say the location is perfect as you have easy access the top locations int the city near the hill with the university and the botanical garden. The doorms could use an upgrade as they felt old and not all that clean, but the facilities like bathrooms/toilets are at top level as they newly renovated. The atmosphere was not as expected but that is how it is when you are traveling out of season.

    DON’T COME HERE IF YOUR A SOLO TRAVELLER. The pub crawl doesn’t exist (?!), the picture with people is misleading, the reception people DON’T EXPLAIN ANYTHING and they don’t help at all! I had to figure everything out myself and come up with solutions myself! Only good thing is the cleaniness
