The location was very good for someone who is visiting Ponta Delgada city center
Some of the staff were very forceful when explaining the policy for the lodging. The overall environment was very noisy. It was common to hear people talking in the corridor.
All in all I liked the hostel. It’s a nice and old building, the accommodation is clean and the location is good. There are a few flaws though: the breakfast is from 8-10 but the highly motivated cleaning ladies start tidying up the dining hall already about 15 mins before the breakfast should end, so for long sleepers this is not the most relaxed atmosphere for eating one can imagine. Besides that the cleaning staff is very friendly, actually far more friendly than the reception staff. Besides that there is no soap in the bathroom, so make sure to take your own, also be aware that towels are not included in the price. In case you sleep in a dorm, I would recommend to take the lower bed of the bunk beds as these rooms have a smoke detector which is blinking very strongly throughout the whole night and can irritate sleep.
Excellent newly refurbished hostel, spotlessly clean, lots of public space to sit and relax. Location was great for the airport bus, short walk to center of town and a couple of minutes walk to the largest shopping centre on the island with a good supermarket. Best value for money on the island.
Could have had more choice at breakfast like yogurt and fruit but it was basically adequate.
The location was right in the middle of the city. It was very near to the biggest and best mall on the island. Furthermore, it was in the center which made it very easy to go to all the places and attractions in very reasonable time. The staff of the hostel were extremely nice, helpful and friendly. The place is also very spacious and special. It had a mix of modern design with a few touches of ancient buildings such as the stairs and the window arches. I really enjoyed my stay there.
The breakfast was a bit too basic and not serving healthier options such as fruit, yoghurt or oats. But overall it was satisfactory.
Very poorly equipped kitchen and dirty furniture.
