I came straight from the incredible youth hostel in Calheta, so it was a bit a culture shock. The, what some here call a historical, building is really old style. The hallways are noisy like hell, the bathrooms look like an army bunck and the whole place looks like you went a few generations back in time. Combined with a... More

The good points: - Nice old atmospheric building from the outside - Great location overlooking the town (and the sea in the distance) - Within walking distance from the centre and a 10-minute bus ride from the airport - Beautiful gardens - Spacious private double rooms with a balcony overlooking a succulent garden - Room very clean - Friendly staff...

The rooms very nasty, bathrooms were dirty and furthermore the wifi does not arrive in the room. The common room is nice. I would not recommend it because it was not a good experience. The position was good

The pousada is more charming than most youth hostels international establishments. Basic stuff, it's big, it's clean, you can sleep here. The staff was very nice and there's free internet and the possibility to print documents.There are several hostels in Ponta Delgada that are cheaper, smaller, more centrally located and a lot more characterful - but this is a decent...

As some other reviewers have noticed, it is an old hostel, which could definitely use some modernizing. Nevertheless, I think that the old, crooked feeling is really fitting for a place like this. It just adds to the overall atmosphere. Beds are decent, as are the showers. Breakfast is a little basic, but the staff is incredibly helpful and the... More

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
