I felt really at home in this hostel. Owners are very attentive to traveler taking time to talk to you, offer you a tea or helping you with the map of the city. I really enjoyed to stay in this hostel. Bathroom and room were very clean and the breakfast for 2 euros in the morning is just perfect !

We didn't like our stay in Prime Hostel Guimaraes. Located near to the city center in a very old building of granite. The owners did choose for black furniture in the livingroom/kitchen. That makes the look and feel very dark. That's setting the atmosphere a little oppressive. The owners are present all the time, they gave me a feeling of... More
