Easy to get to by bus from the stations to Praca Republica: just a couple of mins up the diagonal. Lots of quirky studenty bars round about. The university area is not too bad a climb from here, and it's an easy stroll down into town. Andre at reception did his best with onward info. Comfy dorm bed really well...

A good hostel with average bathroom/kitchen facilities etc. The location is really good, on a hill so the views are great. The attic room is the largest mixed dorm (which makes it the cheapest!) and its really full of character! loved it.

Location is good. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I was in a hurry to book a private room in Coimbra and I came across this hostel. The rooms looked OK in photos. When I arrived there the room really was depressing; looking to old twin bed with Cracked walls and yellowish white color. Toilette down stairs was not really...

The location is very close to the center and the hostel is a nice old building. The furniture are very particular and give to the house a vintage touch. The guys who run the hostel are very helpful and friendly. Just one bad spot it should be cleaner, specially the bathrooms.

The location is nice for the city, the hostel is cozy and really cool, with paid parking in the front and free parking around back. There's a nice terrace to have a beer too. We spent some time with Andrés and he can help you out with anything.

very nice hostel, we were in a room of four person, wood floor, two bunk beds, we have single lockers inside the room. The bathroom in our floor were unisex and maybe the toilet space a bit small (few intimacy), although this, in the ground floor there was a single toilet. The breakfast was simple but effective, self-service with mermelade,...

It was the first time I stayed at a hostel in Portugal, but I loved this experience! The rooms were very clean, the breakfast was nice and the staff pretty cool. The living room is comfortable and the kitchen well equipped, perfect to cook your own meal! I totally recommend this hostel: cheap, well located and nice people!
