Newly renovated guesthouse with a long history in a superb location - ocean view from the balcony! Small but clean rooms with private bathrooms. Jose & Gi gave us a warm welcome and apologized many times for the kitchen that arrived one day delayed. Being scientists ourselves we highly recommend joining Jose & Gi for a tour with (URL HIDDEN)

Nice little hostel, very cute and in an amazing location ! Only minutes away from the centre, but also super close from the beach. The area of Porto Pim is so so nice, I love the atmosphere. You can find there the best restaurants, the best café/snack/bar and the best bakery in town !

Jose and Gi were very friendly hosts, she picked us up from the port, brought our stuff to the hostel and drove us to the hospital, as Stella was quite sick. Afterwards she even came again to the hospital to drive us to a pharmacy before taking us home. So nice! During our stay she always asked if we are alright. Jose was in the shop meanwhile. We had a nightbirds watch with him, which was very interesting and adventurous :). The hostel itself was very good situated, right next to the beautiful beach. It was also very clean. All in all Jose and Gi were very careful hosts and we would recommend staying with them and joining them in one of their tours. It is the best place and company to truly enjoy the island. Best Stella+Miguel

We were nicely welcomed in José and Gi's place and enjoyed our stay there. Lovely neighbourhood in Horta s centertown but quiet street. Porto Pim Bay is a charming area down the stairs. Too bad there was not a double bed as expected when we booked the room, but the place was clean and homy. Good quality-price in Horta. Naturalist base is a very nice and eco friendly place to discover the island with nature lovers and specialists.
