The best stay in all of Portugal so far, and that's saying a lot. Superb in all aspects! The hostel is situated in the central plaza of Evora, with all the sights within a few minutes' walk. Also about 10 minutes away from the bus station. The staff are amazingly friendly and passionate and always there to help with anything...

We had a great stay at Evora Terrace Hostel. Since there were 2 of us, we got a private room because it was the same price for both of us to stay in a dorm. The kitchen is spotless - which is a nice change of pace from other hotels in the country - and there is a rooftop with...

I've been travelling for 12 months now and this would have to be the best hostel I have stayed in. Location is superb. Literally in the heart of the old town right on the main square. The 2 guys who own the place are great. Fluent in English and they even help carry your bags up the stairs. There is...

The hostel is located on the main square so location-wise, it's a winner ! Climb up 2 flights of stairs & the friendly owners greet you happily. Hostel is very nicely decorated & has an extremely cozy feeling. The dorm was clean & faces the main square. You get a good view of the square but if some moron/s decides...

I visited Evora a few weeks ago and stayed at this hostel only for one night, in their 6-person dorm. I'll keep it brief: the owners were friendly and helpful, the facilities were clean and adequate, the location couldn't have been any better and the lovely terrace adds so much to it. A great little hostel

This hostel is well placed in the center of Evora. We arrived a bit late (around 21:45) and the tenant waited for us, it was kind. He also advised us a restaurant in some nearby street, it was really good. Our room was clean and well decorated near the kitchen. Kitchen is well equipped and you can cook your own...

Before I went to this place I checked out other highly rated hostels in Evora and was rather disappointed - none of them earned a 4-5* rating IMHO. This one does. The very friendly hosts are amazing, they equipped and decorated the beautiful new hostel (situated in a very old house directly at the main plaza) with an enormous sense...

I arrived in Evora knowing only that the town was a WHO site, but nothing of the region, what to see, or where to stay. I was in my 4th day of 90 days travel without an itinerary. I found this comfortable, friendly, clean lodging when the taxi driver dropped me in front of the tourist office. Home made cake...
