Coimbra's Youth Hostel Reviews
A nice enough hostel Dec 25, 2010
The price of the hostel was around 11-12 Euros for a dorm room, which is very cheap. However, they do charge you a couple of euros extra if you're not affiliated with their hostel network or some other European one.
Free breakfast is included for the price; consisting of juice, tea/coffee/hot chocolate, bread, chesee, ham and yoghurt.
Location is average - just five minutes away from the university area but you need a good eye on your map. Although I found the street ok, keep an eye out for the Youth Hostelling International logo on the wall too, or you'll walk right past the place!
The dorm rooms are very clean. The showers and toilets are fine too, with good warm water and a decent water pressure within the shower. The communal kitchen has a basic range of utensils but is nice and clean. There is a seating area too.
Safety is fine. The reception is manned constantly, so no worries about being let in. The dorm rooms have keys. While the rooms have these locker-style small cupboards for your blanket, these aren't lockers that you can lock!
The bed was fine.
The dorm rooms are very spacious and you can meet some nice people in your room like at any place if you are lucky. I wouldn't class this as a party hostel though, or one which feels like a second home.
In general, if you are after a cheap but good quality bed, with a decent breakfast in the morning, this is for you!
