Booked 4 nights at €26 last year. Told at arrival in new year price reduced to €24, not reflected in actual price i paid because of 5% prepaid at booking. Seems to be serious lack of communication at the booking center with the individual hostels.

I wouldn't recommend this hostel - weren't allowed to use the kitchen to cook food which was not made clear before the food was purchased to the cooked!! Staff are nice but the atmosphere is seriously lacking. Lounge area is very uncomfortable. Bedrooms have got strobe lighting next to bed (not relaxing!) Not close to restuarants / bars - a good walk away and they do not provide a map either of the area so its hit and miss as to whether you find the place you want to go!!! Avoid this dull hostel!!
The Castelo Branco Youth Hostel was totally revamped and is now brand new, waiting to be visited by you and your friends!
Leave your luggage at the hostel and set out on the adventure. There’s so much to see that it is going to be difficult to choose where to start...
After touring around the city it is time to try Rappel, Slide or if you prefer to keep seeing beautiful sights why not choose All Road or a canoe ride!?
And don’t go back home without trying the delicious typical dish of the region followed by arroz doce (sweet rice) or an enormous slice of the best Pão-de-Ló (sponge cake) that you’ve ever eaten!!
Come on, let’s go!!
