Could not have asked for a better stay. Went in the off season, so it was relatively empty, but the rooms were clear (we liked it so much we checked in twice the same week in different rooms) and the bathrooms were well maintained, and felt like luxury compared to other hostels around Portugal. More than the location and quality...

This is a wonderful hostel in the best possible location with friendly staff and great breakfast. Sometimes the wifi was spotty, but overall it was good enough to get by. The other facilities are, howerver, outstanding and very modern.

The Serenata Hostel is also a high quality hotel, situated in an historic building, right next to the old cathedral right in the centre of the old town. The location is perfect, the hotel - a converted maternity hospital - is full of character, and the quality standards (both the hotel and hostel side) are very high. We particularly loved...

The hostel was very clean, comfortable and our room spacious. We like the themed approach to the decor. Staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast provided a good and varied selection of breakfast options and made this hostel good value. Convenient location for exploring the city, with bars and cafes close by.

Where do I start?!! If you go here, know that you will not be able to sleep at night. The little open space/square in front of the hostel is where University of Coimbra students party. The parties start around 10PM and go all the way to 6-7AM. The rooms are not noise proof at all and the students make the...

The Serenata hostel is a very clean hostel that is kept in good condition. It's also very well situated in Coimbra (just 5 minutes walk from the university and related museums), which is its most positive attribute in my opinion, and makes it an option to consider. However, the hostel feels a bit... sterile. There is not much going on,...

A beautiful old building with modern amenities. Very nice indoor common room, outdoor common area could use some sprucing up. Bathrooms are good and mostly clean. Internet has slow to regular speed. The beds are comfortable, breakfast is good, no vegan option though. Kitchen and fridge are available which is great for cooking a meal for yourself. Staff is friendly...
