“Great hostel. Just great.”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

I spent one night in the POP hostel in Braga in December 2013. The colourful design of the whole appartment, the painting wall in the cosy dining room and, last but not least, the neat dormitories are all things which instantly jump to your eye. The hostel owner Helena is a hospituous and inspiring person - plus, she knows the city quite well :-)
Breakfast is basic, concerning bread and toppings, but there are also fruits and selfmade French Press coffee at your disposal.
The hostel is in a central position, too.
All in all, absolutely no reason not to stay here.

really friendly stuff, everything is clean and functioning. well located, near the bus station and two minutes walking from the city centre..(if you are travelling around you'll find a shop with camping articles nearby!). The balcony is awesome if you want to enjoy braga's sunsets...and breakfasts with helena's homemade marmelades it's something to try:)

Braga POP Hostel is like home. The small staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the place is always clean, everything is cosy. The kitchen is also really good as well as the breakfast provided. The location is also really good because it is in middle way between train station and bus station, and also next door to city center!

I've stayed some days during the Encontros da Imagem Photo Festival and it was a great place to stay. Calm, very clean, good ambience and nice people around. Helena is a sweet person and makes everything for you to fell home in the hostel and in the city. I really suggest Braga POP hostel as a place to stay!

arriving in braga only expecting to see one thing but ended up being occupied for 3 days - all thanks to braga pop's helena and jonison. ever so helpful, they are what all hostel staff should be - they really look after you. suggesting places before you ask and passionate about their city too. lots of tips on where to eat and see and go. always up for a chat and coffee on their sunny balcony or the homely kitchen. it's a neat little hostel, clean and bright, and they're doing a wonderful job. don't forget to pick up the nice map put together by locals who actually knows what's going on - combined with the knowledge of the staff there, your braga experience will be unforgettable.

Room Tip: the 4 people dorm is a little roomier, with desk and places to sit, and have a nice little balcony.
