This hostel was excellent. We can't speak highly enough of the staff, especially Juana,who went to some trouble to organise ongoing accommodation for us.

Gostei: do lugar na natureza. Para melhorar: a duche tem somente água fria.

Caro Hóspede, Estamos muito satisfeitos por tê-lo tido connosco e esperamos que esteja satisfeito com as nossas instalações e serviços. A sua opinião é muito importante para nós! De facto tivemos problemas com a caldeira nos quartos múltiplos, situação essa que está a ser resolvida. Esperamos por uma próxima visita! Cumprimentos, Joana Mendes (Responsável de Pousada)

It's a quiet and nice place, with gentle people. Not in the town, but no far from interesting destinations.
