“Last piece of the Puzzle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

What I mean is Puzzle Hostel made my trip complete!

I spent a week in Portugal travelling from Porto down to Lisbon. I stopped off in Figueira da Foz for one night which quickly turned into two!

Puzzle is fantastic! It's clean and tidy and really has a homely feel about it! Even better If you turn right out of the front door you'll be on the beach in 30 seconds! However, if you turn left you'll be in the centre of the town within two minutes where you'll find some lovely bars and restaurants! The best of the lot has to be Vintage which is actually owned by Pedro who also owns the Hostel. To meet Pedro is an absolute pleasure in itself, this gentleman is an absolute credit to his country, simply you could not wish to meet a nicer man!

You can also rent a bike at the hostel which can be used to explore the beautiful forestry and mountainous like areas around Figueira!

Also you'll be provided with a lovely breakfast each morning and the washing facilities are simply fantastic!

The saddest day of my trip was to leave Puzzle! I will most certainly be returning in the future! You simply have to visit Figueira and whilst you're there Puzzle is the ideal place to stay! I really don't think you'll find a better Hostel in the World!

We spent several nights at Puzzle Hostel. The manager is really nice and helpful.
It's just a few minutes walk to the beach and the city centre of Figuera da Foz is also quite near.
The prices are totally fair and the overall quality is great.
