Obrigadinho Filipe, Catarina, Rita & Jose. So friendly & helpful.
Perfect base for my (too short) trip to Aveiro. Facilities you would expect of a great hostel. Comfy beds (no bunks in loft room: a pleasant change). Very clean throughout. Fresh breakfast in a well equipped kitchen. Free computers. Homely common area.
Few fellow guests in rainy February, but my dorm-mate Asel from Karaganda, Kazakhstan: she was nice company.
Alvarium bar across the corner is a great spot for music & camaraderie (thanks Carlos, Fabio & Paulo on that one).
Best day-trip tip? Across the lagoon by ferry to Sao Jacinto, stroll through the pine woods of the nature reserve to the wild Atlantic dunes. (Was expecting excellent birding, but was let down in that respect; but the atmosphere was so soulful it was easy to forgive.) Hostel staff will advise how to get there: a couple of connections, easy to make.More
