Grande Hostel de Coimbra
Ranked #20 of 37 Specialty Lodging in Coimbra
Reviewed October 8, 2011

No locks on showers and toilets; poor to awful service; nondescript breakfast and poor facilities, in addition to an infestation of ants meant this was most certainly the worst hostel in which I've stayed in Portugal, which generally has very good hostels countrywide. The location is great however and the Wifi super speedy. Still doesn't make up for it though!

Coimbra is a beautiful city to visit and Grande Hostel de Coimbra is up to it. The space and decoration are wonderful, the staff makes you feel at home and the prices are fair. I'd recommend it to everyone and I hope to come back! 10 stars!

Room Tip: O "quarto" do piso superior é o sótão. É terrivel.
