Loved my stay! Staff were super kind and since the hostel isn’t that big, it gives off very cozy and social vibes. Kitchen is small but has everything you need. Outdoor terrace is nice and showers/toilets were always clean. Area perfect too. Beds and floors make a lot of noise but that’s not the biggest problem. Would recommend!

Cute old hostel on a popular street in Funchal. Directly above a restaurant, so wear earplugs as it stays noisy until the early morning. Staff were always friendly and helpful, check-in was flexible and parking was free. We loved having our little balcony to let in the cool air at night and dry our clothes off when we got caught in the rain! Men's bathroom always empty, but never a long queue in the women's as there were multiple bathrooms. Fridge was a little bit cramped, but we managed.
