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

    Perfectly located, basic free breakfast included. Very nice old and renovated building. Since the area is central it might be a bit noisy at night, but this is expected in the centre of a town. We arrived by car and were totally confused on how to park during the evening rush hour so I called the hostel and the girl at the reception was very helpful :)

    A little pricey perhaps but undoubtedly one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in.

    The Serenata Hostel is located in the very historical centre of the city of Coimbra. Walking distance to the university and the main atractions of Coimbra. The hostel is a beautiful ex maternity hospital house and it is very cozy! I would definetely stay again at Serenata Hostel!

    I only stayed for the night there. Great location near within a 10min walk to the university. Not much social atmosphere, it felt more likely a hotel. The dorm rooms are big and very clean. No elevators so don’t bring a suitcase if you can’t carry it up the stairs!! I made that mistake. Otherwise nice hostel!

    Front desk staff were amazing and helpful, always down to chat and give recommendations. Breakfast was standard eats, from 7-10. But when they say it’s over at 10 it’s really over - you can’t linger in the breakfast room because they kick you out to clean up. Bathrooms were clean. In order to get onto the top bunk you have to climb the notches carved into the frame at the foot end of the beds, which was a bit odd and awkward. Not a super social hostel either, no common area.

    Overall a fine hostel. De vibe wasn’t amazing and the staff wasn’t very friendly. The times in the website app are a bit too optimistic: check-in is at 15 and check-out at 12, which would be fine if they didn’t advertise it as if it was something else. Kitchen isn’t “fully equipped” but it works and the breakfast is good. The place is clean and the location is great. We weren’t blown away, but it was fine.

    I got bit by bed bugs while staying here. The sinks in the men’s bathroom were also a complete joke, nearly impossible to wash your face without making a complete mess and soaking the entire counter, terrible design but quite comic to try and use. Breakfast was nice but staff was hit or miss. Basically what you expect from a big, slightly run down place. I would not stay here again.
