Welcome to our hostel

It is said that King Afonso Henriques was born in Guimaraes and also that it was where Portugal first became an independent nation, after the Battle of St Mamas in 1128.

This town is also the birthplace of the modern and comfortable Youth Hostel which is right next to the historic centre of Guimaraes - considered World Heritage since 2001. Our hostel has a self-catering kitchen, common room, laundry facilities, TV and games room.

Once you're all settled in your room, climb the hill to the castle, then walk down toward the Dukes' Palace, and finally sit comfortably at one of the outdoor cafes in Largo da Oliveira.

Les douches fonctionnent mal et la cuisine est peu accueillante. Le personnel très sympathique et les chambres magnifiques

Le petit déjeuner n'est vraiment pas terrible, une petit tasse d'eau chaude pour un thé et le pain est industriel, dommage de ne pas faire travailler un boulanger local. L'auberge est bien située à l'entrée de la vieille ville.

This is one of my favouite hostels in a really interesting town. The hostel is near the centre and can be walked to from the train station. There is plenty of good sized rooms a good breqkfast and a very reasonable price especially in the low season.
