Property Description

The Jaca Hostel is a small Hostel in the heart of Funchal city on Madeira Island. Before, it was a family home, coming from the nineteenth century, which after being remodelled became a cosy place that mixes the blue of the sea, the culture of the city surrounded by the green of the mountains, the trails and the levadas. The name Jaca is original of a regionalism of the island of Madeira that means small crab.

This property is 1 minute walk from the city hall. Located in Funchal, Jaca Hostel offers a inner yard, kitchen and balcony. Free Wi-Fi is included.

Honestly one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. I stayed in both locations in Madeira (Funchal). So friendly and welcoming. I saw a lot of reviews saying it isn’t a social hostel where they don’t put on organized outings but that’s just a part of travelling. Sometimes you have to go be social on your own. I met some incredibly lovely people at both locations and turned out to be one of my favourite parts of my trip! I will stay with Jaca when I’m back! 🩷🩷

The atmosphere was chilled, though it was a shame they didn't organise anything. The beddings and towels were also nice, though there was no hair dryer in some rooms. Overall I really liked the design. Location was also very good.

The hostel is in a great location, very close to many restaurants. The room was very bright and beds were comfortable. However, if your travelling solo there wasn’t any social activities/isn’t a social hostel.
