We were 3 people staying in a 4 bed dorm and were more than happy with this place. The house is really cool, all the facilities are very clean and you have great chill out areas. The kitchen is also nice and they offer a good breakfast (way better than the average stuff you get in hostels). Dont hesitate, book! :)

Relaxing place, with a garden where you can prepare a barbecue or just enjoy the end of the day in the middle of trees. It is well located, near to the main square of the town and close to the historic center. Nice and helpful staff, you feel like home! Rooms are comfortable and there are also chill out zones to meet people.

This hostel is run in a homely-like way, everything is made so to make one feel at home; the employees are nice and helping people and will gladly share a talk and suggestions about what to do. The place is quite close (but on a lower height) to the university; the view from the hostel is that of the citadel, amazing.

The service is average, with nice staff always ready to help, breakfast is good as well. The rooms are a little bit uncomfortable, and its lacking an extra bathroom. The location is very good, near evrything interesting in Coimbra. If you plan to spend five days or less in Coimbra, I reccomend it!

This hostel is not just a place to spend the night, but is a great place to relax and enjoy Coimbra. The staff were excellent and went beyond the normal hostel staff job description. For example they arranged a lovely home cooked dinner for those interested, which was just perfect. The building is really comfortable with loads of fresh air, free wifi and comfortable common areas. All in all, I highly recommend it for anybody wanting to make the most out of a trip to Coimbra
