Been there for three nights. Apart from Braga and Viana Do Castello (accessible for a one day trip from here) being my favorite of the 7 cities of Portugal I visited, this hostel specifically has a special atmosphere that made me feel at home. Pedro and Helena know how to do their job, they are more than willing to help... More

After sleeping in a tent on some noisy campsites, this hostel felt like coming home in a way. Being among like-minded people, enjoying a layed back evening on the big terrace with a nice view over the city and finally finding sleep at night again... all this was the best that could happen to us. The place is full of... More

When I was on holidays with my girlfriend, we ended up in Braga. Unable to find a chouchsurfer to host us, the POP hostel was our crashsite of choice. We haven't regretted going there for a second. The people running the place are really friendly and helpful, and familiar with the surroundings. They don't feel they work in the hostel,... More

The people make the place what it is - warm regards to Helena and her helpers :) To keep it short i can say that I would like to recommend the POP hostel with all my heart. Spent 2 nights there earlier this month - the TAdvis option won't let me choose August 2015 for some reason. Mind you guys,... More

Helena and Margareth have a great hostel running right in the centre of Braga. It is ideal for backpackers and solo travellers and it has the homey atmosphere ideal for meeting other people. The breakfast was delicious and lots of the food was home-made prepared by the owners. The owners take the time and often hang out with the guests... More

First hostel created in the town and I don’t believe there’s a better one in Braga. It’s also helpful that it’s the closest hostel to the bus station. Shouldn’t get lost finding it but I did:-( Best direction is one minute from the front door to the Igrega (Church) do Carmo. It’s also very helpful (to me a Scotsman with... More

We were expecting a noisier room but were pleasently surprised. The breakfast was more than adequate. The rooms were clean and the student / traveler environement was non-threatening. Bright colors in an upbeat setting,

We had a very nice stay in a two persons bedroom, the door was on a common balcony but because the hostel is small and there were few people we almost had a private balcony. The staff were friendly and gave some good advice on were to go. The staff is always ready to help and they know were you... More

The POP Hostel is amazing! very friendly, welcoming and helpful in any aspect. Great facilities and in general a very relaxed and romantic ambience. I'd definitely recommend it for a stay in the beautiful city of Braga.
