Nice hostel in Madeira. Kitchen super nice and it’s awesome that the have a water filter. Showers decent. I was a little confused when staff seemed to get frustrated with me for thinking checkout was at 12 because it said that on o a poster next to the bathrooms. They put new signs in the room as I was packing up which seemed a little passive aggressive but whatever. Overall a good time

The location of the hostel is great, I really enjoyed my time here. But bring earplugs if you sleep in a dorm room because everything makes noise, from beds to the floors. Also there is something strange with the showers, there is no where to keep your stuff dry so you have to get out of the shower ( in the public space) to get dressed. Other than that I loved it, nice fully equipped kitchen and the chill areas are also great.

Very Good

The Hostel location is indeed excellent for down town Funchal however it is extremely noisy in the Female dorm..restaurants directly under the window and glass door. Difficult to sleep. It's more of a Pension than a Hostel. Areas to hang out are rather dated. Kitchen is on the second floor. Very clean and well managed. Be careful to use lockers at all times. Beds adequate no curtains and light mattresses. Over all location 5 star but draw backs due to that.
