It's a nice place and you're certainly getting a lot for what you pay. Clean beds, decent kitchen, fast wifi, good location in vicinity of the shopping area, beach and historic centre. Above all, however, it's a great place to hang out with friendly staff and beautiful outdoor area.

The hostel is very well located and the rooms are nice. The bathroom is really great and wifi works very well! The only problem was the temperature of the room... Definitely too hot and the fan was making so much noise that is was hard to sleep with! The owner is a nice person!

Just stayed there one night on my way back from Jeri. It's very basic, and it doesn't even offer toilet paper, but you can't beat the price. The location is great, close to Beira Mar and Dragao do Mar, and the hostel is walled, barbwired, and has an electronic lock. It doesn't look nice, but it's required as the city...

I have been to the hostel in july and august just after the World Cup. The hostel took advantage o this event to to renew everything from matresses to a new garden and kitchen. Safety, attention, cleanliness and location are still strong points.

Location perfect, easy to get from the airport by taxi, very very cheap, quite cousy place with a nice internal garden and common place with a telly. It is not for five star travellers but if you are willing to make some compromises then this could be your place. Bring your own lock, your own toilet paper and don't expect...
