“Such a cool hostel”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

New building and a cool hostel owner, Pedro. What do u need more?
The rooms are nice, the shared bathrooms clean, the kitchen is big and full of all the necessary you need for breakfast (included) and for cooking by your self (if you want).
During the night, Pedro showed me the city, suggesting the best bars and pubs and the restaurants.
Such a great holiday in Figueira da Foz!

Great staying in this hostel!!!
The hostel is perfect, it seems to feel at home.
Breakfast is very good, all the rooms are very clean and everything is comfortable.
Pedro, the owner, is one of the most nice and gentle person I've ever met!
He is very helpfull for everything, he's your friend!
He brings you by car to surf, he makes parties with you and invents new accomodations for everyone, also in unexpected situations.

I stayed a couple of nights with friends at Puzzle Hostel. IMO, it is one of the best hostels I ever been to. Great service, hospitable owner, who is willing to show you surroundings and help you with everything. Perfect location.
I highly recommend this hostel for friends and couples (suites looked amazing)!
What distinguishes this hostel from others (incl hotels) is Pedro's friendliness and help! You won't experience such a service in a chain hotel.
And don't forget to try a Vintage Mojito in Pedro's bar. By far the best Mojito :)

If you need a place to stay, choose this hostel, you will not regret it!
Puzzle is nice, quiet and confortable. We only spent one night there but Pedro offred us a tour of the city, showed us restaurants and bars. We arrived late and had to leave early but he made our short stay an unforgettable moment!

The stay in Puzzle Hostel was the best stay in a hostel we ever had. The hostel is a small place with double and dorm rooms, which are lovely decorated and very clean. There is a clean and new kitchen with everything you need for cooking, or you can also ask Pedro for local restaurants and he is very pleased to show you around in Figueira. Pedro,the owner of the hostel, is so welcoming that you just have to enjoy your stay there. Location is perfect:2 minutes to the beach and just in centre.
We are allready planning to come back!

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!
