This hostel is located on one of the main streets of Braga, the perfect location! The room had a lovely view and was spacious, great value for money. The en-suite was a bit too close to the bed/ open but that wasn't really a problem and we had a great stay here.

One of the worst place that i have slept. Hostel crepy whit small and dirty rooms, unconfortable beds, near of one church that disturbing you when you are sleeping. And the worst thing is that it is in process of reconstruction, the ground it was uncompleted, i don´t want to talk about wet towels, wifi poor.The only point is that... More

I've been in quite some hostels before, but I think this one combined all the weird and crappy things from all of them.... The room reeked of sewer, the whole place is kind of run down, no personnel at the reception when you need them, etc. But the weirdest of it all is that they were in the middle of... More

All your basic needs with perfect locations and very reasonable price. The service was amazing and staff were very helpfull and friendly. They recommended some good restaurants and clubs in the area (not that we could stay up late enough to visit the clubs that one opened at 1am). One lady, Carmen (I think she might be the owner) helped... More

Hotel is situated in excellent place in the city centre. Staff is good, but ony one lady speaks english. Breakfast is continental. We've booked economy room. The main difference between ordinary and economy room is not air conditioner but place where WC is situated. In our room it was... at balcony. That's very inconvenient. Parking is not far from the...

The location is excellent but the hotel itself is getting a bit run down. The Reception area is located on the first floor, up some steep stairs. The lift begins immediately you press the button and has no second safety door so be careful. You are issued with a key by Reception to use the lift to floors occupied by... More

This is a wonderful, warm, family oriented pension, with 21 rooms, one minute from the Praca de Republica, the focal point in Braga. I have stayed here 3 times, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The family who run in are friendly, helpful, and speak English. Some of the larger rooms are elegant, and the smaller ones are very comfortable.... More
