Not in all hostels I enjoy spending time in living room, but the one in this hostel is so welcoming. I really like the design. Also in kitchen you have everything you need and it's cleaan. The room was okay. The view from the hostel is beautiful (avenida da liberdade), and the staff is nice.

This hostel has just been taken over by new owners. They're trying their absolute best to make you feel at home and will be happy to help you with whatever. Doesn't look anything like the hostel on the pictures from before. Opened day and night in the middle of the center. Has a nice lounge area and a kitchen with... More

We found a nice, clean and lovely hostel for our brief visit in Braga. Our room, as well as the rest of the hostel was clean, and fit to the description. Claudio, the tenant, is really friendly and ready to help, in many languages !

This hostel is located on one of the main streets of Braga, the perfect location! The room had a lovely view and was spacious, great value for money. The en-suite was a bit too close to the bed/ open but that wasn't really a problem and we had a great stay here.

I've been in quite some hostels before, but I think this one combined all the weird and crappy things from all of them.... The room reeked of sewer, the whole place is kind of run down, no personnel at the reception when you need them, etc. But the weirdest of it all is that they were in the middle of... More

All your basic needs with perfect locations and very reasonable price. The service was amazing and staff were very helpfull and friendly. They recommended some good restaurants and clubs in the area (not that we could stay up late enough to visit the clubs that one opened at 1am). One lady, Carmen (I think she might be the owner) helped... More

The location is excellent but the hotel itself is getting a bit run down. The Reception area is located on the first floor, up some steep stairs. The lift begins immediately you press the button and has no second safety door so be careful. You are issued with a key by Reception to use the lift to floors occupied by... More
