The hostel is very clean, cozy and well decorated. The staff is really helpful, advising you to the best things to see in the city. The beds are so comfortable! And you are at 5 minutes walking to the center! Really worth the visit!

The owner saw my hand washed clothes on the clothesline and yelled and screamed at me for using her washing machine, which I did not. Her hostility continued throughout my stay and made my time there very uncomfortable. Cold showers, inconvenient location, smells like a litter box.

It's very easy to write here a lot of lies and ruin the work that two persons make for 5 years. We love our guests and want them to have a nice rest and stay with us! That's why we will not allow some people to scream, turn everything up in the living room, kitchen, bathroom and other common areas....

I just spent one night in the hostel, but I found it really great. Staff was very kind and ready to help. I booked a bed in a dorm, and fortunately that night no one else reserved in that dorm. The building is in a residential location, but very near to the University and the main square. It has a...

As for me, the place has no atmosphere. No travel gossip, no life. It is clean (and this might be the only advantage), although the bathroom sure needs some changes: one toilet and one shower, none of them can be locked. Beware of the "breakfast included" - there is nearly nothing to eat. You eat exactly two tosts with jam....

I was here for a few days on a trip to visit the university and I thought Dream On was very nice! It was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! They suggested some great places to go (Go Walking tours and the Fado cultural center) and gave me good directions to get to each place. The...

Hello! Thank you very much for your review! It's very important to us to know our guests opinion, so we can improve everyday! December is the month we have less guests, but we have always an employee that sleeps at the hostel! It was bad luck that the air conditioning didn't work and we apologize for that!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The dream of two friends who studied Tourism brought together Dream On Coimbra, a ecological and cozy hostel which values recycling and environmental sustainability practices. To reuse, recycle materials and save energetic resources was the philosophy which boosted the creation and development of our hostel! Decoration proves it, with a wall made of plastic bottles, a sofa made of pallets and an old mattress, a table with decades which was recycled, old drawers which became modern shelf and even an ashtray made of tuna cans. Our rooms honor the city’s tourism offer, with themes such as the Mondegoriver, the gardens of the city, the University, the legend of Pedro and Ines, and Saint Elizabeth, Queen of Portugal. In the living room and the kitchen our dream comes true when we see different nationalities interacting! With a privileged location, near the historical area, Dream On Coimbra Hostel has protocols with several tourism entertainment companies. It’s the perfect place to get to know the city’s cultural, historic, architectonic and environment heritage, which was recently distinguished by UNESCO. And when night falls, lose yourself walking the streets that will lead you to the unique academic nightlife. The hostel is easily achieved by buses or taxis and is also near of services such as hospitals, banks, post offices, shopping centers, restaurants, mini markets, police station among others. We have dorms of 6, 4, 3, twin, double and silgle rooms. The Dream On Coimbra Hostel will offer you: - Free wifi all over the house; - Guest kitchen fully equipped; - Cable TV in common room, - Outdoor area to smoke; - Free linen included; - Free security locker; - Reading lights in all beds; - Male and female bathroom with 24hs hot showers; - No curfew. ... more   less
