I had a very good experience in this hostel. Very kind staff, a calm and pleasure atmosphere, cool decoration and you can easily feel at home. Breakfast is okay, and the rooms are clean. The location is also good, you are in the center of Braga and near everything you need to visit or see.

The staff is jst so nice and helpful. Location is great, everything is clean and ordered, the breakfast is delicious. Common areas are awesome but not too big. Was there in the offseason so there was not that much going on.

Helena and the rest of the staff are extremely helpful and have amazing suggestions for anything you want to do! The hostel really felt like a home for those few days; breakfast with homemade jams, always a lovely welcome when coming... More

Been there for three nights. Apart from Braga and Viana Do Castello (accessible for a one day trip from here) being my favorite of the 7 cities of Portugal I visited, this hostel specifically has a special atmosphere that made me feel at home.

After sleeping in a tent on some noisy campsites, this hostel felt like coming home in a way. Being among like-minded people, enjoying a layed back evening on the big terrace with a nice view over the city and finally finding sleep at night again... all this was the best that could happen to us.

When I was on holidays with my girlfriend, we ended up in Braga. Unable to find a chouchsurfer to host us, the POP hostel was our crashsite of choice. We haven't regretted going there for a second. The people running the place are really friendly and helpful, and familiar with the surroundings. They don't feel they work in the hostel,... More

The people make the place what it is - warm regards to Helena and her helpers :) To keep it short i can say that I would like to recommend the POP hostel with all my heart. Spent 2 nights there earlier this month - the TAdvis option won't let me choose August 2015 for some reason. Mind you guys,... More

Helena and Margareth have a great hostel running right in the centre of Braga. It is ideal for backpackers and solo travellers and it has the homey atmosphere ideal for meeting other people. The breakfast was delicious and lots of the food was home-made prepared by the owners. The owners take the time and often hang out with the guests... More

First hostel created in the town and I don’t believe there’s a better one in Braga. It’s also helpful that it’s the closest hostel to the bus station. Shouldn’t get lost finding it but I did:-( Best direction is one minute from the front door to the Igrega (Church) do Carmo. It’s also very helpful (to me a Scotsman with... More
