“Simple, but clean and friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

I was here for a few days on a trip to visit the university and I thought Dream On was very nice! It was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! They suggested some great places to go (Go Walking tours and the Fado cultural center) and gave me good directions to get to each place. The rooms themselves were a little cold but were cheerful, and I think it was unusually cold during my visit. If you are going to the university the location is very good, as it is only about a 10 minute walk! The price was also good. :)

December is the month we have less guests, but we have always an employee that sleeps at the hostel!
It was bad luck that the air conditioning didn't work and we apologize for that!

We are waiting for your next visit!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The dream of two friends who studied Tourism brought together Dream On Coimbra, a ecological and cozy hostel which values recycling and environmental sustainability practices. To reuse, recycle materials and save energetic resources was the philosophy which boosted the creation and development of our hostel! Decoration proves it, with a wall made of plastic bottles, a sofa made of pallets and an old mattress, a table with decades which was recycled, old drawers which became modern shelf and even an ashtray made of tuna cans. Our rooms honor the city’s tourism offer, with themes such as the Mondegoriver, the gardens of the city, the University, the legend of Pedro and Ines, and Saint Elizabeth, Queen of Portugal. In the living room and the kitchen our dream comes true when we see different nationalities interacting! With a privileged location, near the historical area, Dream On Coimbra Hostel has protocols with several tourism entertainment companies. It’s the perfect place to get to know the city’s cultural, historic, architectonic and environment heritage, which was recently distinguished by UNESCO. And when night falls, lose yourself walking the streets that will lead you to the unique academic nightlife. The hostel is easily achieved by buses or taxis and is also near of services such as hospitals, banks, post offices, shopping centers, restaurants, mini markets, police station among others. We have dorms of 6, 4, 3, twin, double and silgle rooms. The Dream On Coimbra Hostel will offer you: - Free wifi all over the house; - Guest kitchen fully equipped; - Cable TV in common room, - Outdoor area to smoke; - Free linen included; - Free security locker; - Reading lights in all beds; - Male and female bathroom with 24hs hot showers; - No curfew. ... more   less
