The rooms and very old and you wake up early because of the noise and sunlight. The curtains do not cover the Windows!! The Breakfast is a joke... You have to buy ham and cheese, because you only get butter and jam

We stayed a night in this youth hostel (double bedroom). It is clean and service is ok, but the building needs to be renovated (especially the bath/showers), which made the stay not 100% satisfactory... Its located directly downtown which makes it a good place to discouver Ponta Delgada.

The hostel desperately needs its sanitary equipment renewed (especially showers), even by hostel standards. The location is quite nice, but not that central. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. WiFi is not available in the rooms or at breakfast, only in the common room.

I have been there at the end of March and I agree: Cold and wet. But I did expect that up to a certain degree in such a humid area. My main problem was the light at night. On the second floor the lights were on the whole night long. And because of the windows above the doors, it was... More

I went there with my class (we were on a field trip) and I was surprised. It was better than what I expected. For the cost it the best option on that área. I only didn't like the breakfast even though there was very diversified.

We were here at the end of March and the temperature outside in Ponta Delgada was around 16. The temperature inside the hostel seemed much cooler than outside. The first night I slept with four quilts to keep me warm enough. In the morning there was no hot water. We mentioned this to the staff and they told us to... More

We stayed in a double bedroom with en suite bathroom and breakfast was included. The price was very good and it is possible to use the kitchen to cook your meals and to use a small shared fridge. It was clean although a bit worn. Breakfast was ok and you can also prepare your own breakfast if you have to... More

We were 15 young people staying at this place for a week, and of course for small money you cannot expect very much, so that is why my rating is average. You pay small money and you get what you pay for. First of all the staff are very nice and friendly, excellent service, the house looks gorgeous, good location... More

I believe the hostel is part of HI (Hosteling International). This place was very easy to find! Right next to the Antonio Borges Garden where there is a very tall tree making it easy to locate the hostel from far away in town. the parking was free. Our party (2 f in early 30's) stayed at this hostel in June.... More

This hostel is part of the Hostelling International (Portuguese Pousada da Juventude network) and is certainly the cheapest way to spend a comfortable (to budget standards, of course!) night in Ponta Delgada. [It was the cheapest part of my whole trip in fact!] It is located toward the back of the city and up the hill a bit. Such a... More
