Welcome to our hostel

Located in the town of São Roque do Pico, this youth hostel lodges its guests in the XVII century Saint Peter of Alcantara. Become a discoverer, sail to the island of Pico and stay in our Youth Hostel in the town of São Roque. From here you will set forth to discover the island's magnificent history., If you enjoy being one with nature, you will be happy to know that this town has much to offer in outdoor activities, such as nature walks, bike riding, swimming, fishing (angling or underwater fishing), hunting, camping... São Roque has the essential attractions in order for you to spend unforgettable days. Underwater fishing is very appealing due to the richness of our ocean's fauna and flora and it's interesting rock formations. The observation of these species is also a great activity. As an alternative to underwater observation, you can turn to the Whale Watching companies and spend some time with these magnificent mammals (as with the dolphins). For those whom enjoy hunting: rabbit hunting season is open throughout the year and if you purchase a license, you may also hunt for woodcock, perdizes and quail.

The weather is known to be a bit unstable, but it is mild enough to create the perfect ecosystem, which in it's turn allows the production of tasty delicacies such as the well known island cheese.

Can you imagine a holiday like this?! Those whom visit this island are guarantied days of unforgettable pleasure and relaxation.

sao roque do pico is small so hostel was close to town. comfortable, but can be 'echo-ey' in hallways at night. definitely need car to explore island, esp. mt. pico. purchase meals or better be creative at cooking.

Vera (reception) and the morning lady were very helpful. The kitchen was good (clean and well appointed) but not enough smaller pots for indivdual sized cooking!

They did not accept the deposit, which was debited during the booking process via your web-site, so I had to pay it twice. Because we are member of the german YHF (DJH) since many years I expected that I should pay the fees with 10% discount for members and that they accept that I have already payed 6% deposit during the booking process. I sent a complaint to YHF, they did answer, but the portuguese YHF section did not answer nor payed back the 6% until today.
