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.

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.

-Schöne Lage - Blick aufs Meer - Zimmer sehr kalt - schlecht isolierte Fenster - keine Heizung - nicht genügend Wolldecken - Das Badezimmer war ok - Das Frühstück war sehr einseitig - Marmelade in Plastik - frisches Obst wäre schön gewesen!! - der Kaffe wurde in einem riesigen Topf zubereitet und dort Tagelang erneut aufgewärmt bis der Topf nach ca 3-5 Tagen leer war. Ekelhaft!! - haben dann im Kaffe im Ort gefrühstückt - Personal war sehr freundlich

Sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal. Allerdings fehlt mindestens ein beheizbarer Aufenthaltsraum, da alle Zimmer ohne Heizung sind. Es ist zwar nie ganz kalt, aber da es teilweise feucht ist braucht man auch intern eine gute Jacke. Die über geleistete Anzahlung wurde nicht akzeptiert.

Mein Aufenthalt war wirklich wunderschön, der Staff super hilfsbereit, das Klostergebäude sehr beeindruckend (dicke Mauern, dadurch sehr ruhig) und der Blick aus dem Fenster PERFEKT.

Beautiful hostel in a lovely location. I would suggest that the hostel promote activities and maybe organise get-togethers with the guests Sometimes it just felt like a hotel.
