Excellent hostel in Coimbra Nov 29, 2010
This is one of the cheapest hostels in Coimbra. Priced at 10-14 Euros per night, you get free internet access, free lockers in your room and breakfast in the morning.
The location is not far from the university and if you have a map, this hostel is not hard to find at all. I have given it an average mark for location because of the lack of signage. You find the road and the address ok, but the lack of a big sign which is easy to see makes you think you are walking up the stairs of someone's house!
The rooms, kitchens and washing areas are very clean. The showers and toilets are very private and there is wonderful piping hot water in the showers. The bathroom sinks have cold water, and this might be an issue for guys wanting a shave! There is a washing machine downstairs if required and somewhere to hand wet clothes outside. The kitchen has an extensive range of utensils.
The hostel is very safe indeed. Locks on the dorm rooms, and lockers are available near your bed for free. The main entrance is locked and can only be opened by the reception staff or if you have your swipe key with you.
The bed is comfortable and clean, and sheets and blankets are provided.
I was visiting during low season, so there weren't many people too speak with. However, I imagine this would be an even better place with more people around.
A very cool hostel, with excellent staff. Highly recommended.
