This hostel will rock your socks off if you are accustomed to sterile, questionably clean dorm rooms that cover Europe. The hostel has literally in the best location in Coimbra (though beware you will be dragging your bags/backpacks up several flights of cobblestone stairs)- next to Universidade, cute bars and shops. The reception is there for business hours and is only a phone call away otherwise. They also will explain everything right when you arrive so you feel safe and comfortable. Dorm rooms provide necessary privacy and comfort (lockers are provided, big bunk beds, electrical outlets on each bed, keys to rooms). Bathrooms are cleaned regularly though still shared by lots of people so bring necessary shower shoes. Ample common room space. As far as your average European hostel goes, I really, really enjoyed this hostel.
