I really enjoyed staying at CSI. the room was comfortable and gave me a lot of privacy. The walk to the university was not too long, I got used to it and enjoyed it. The kitchen and toilets are in good condition. Internet works perfectly. I'm even thinking about staying there again soon because of the quality/price ratio. Thank you :)

Arriving at the Coimbra Students International hostel (CSI) was a special experience. Both Alvaro and Rafael were nowhere to be seen, but they have their business well organised. At first, I parked my car in front of the gate, at the parking reserved for the neighbours. Please note that you can enter immediately; Just open the 3 parts of the gate from the inside and park your car inside the garden court, behind the wall. Please leave space for other cars to park and pass, even if your car is the only one. Alvaro and Rafael appreciate social behaviour. :-) After parking in backwards, paying attention not to burn my clutch on the steep slope, I walked into the hostel through the wrong door, so I did feel lost at first. I just asked one of the other students and they showed me the entrance where the keys were. After I had found my room and unloaded my car, I could appreciate the architecture of this former convent. The room itself has yellow walls, a colour I happen to like. The house and room look rather basic, but anything you might need can be found in the house. I booked through AirBNB, for only 14 Euros - normally €16. When taking a shower, please don't give up on hot water: it may take 3 full minutes, but hot water will arrive in your shower cabin. Please note that Portuguese often mix up red and blue, for hot and cold. In Coimbra, it's even harder: F is for frio (cold) en Q is for quente (hot), painted on the water tap in a monumental writing hard to decipher. I did not see Alvaro nor Rafael throughout the whole weekend, but I did see the university of Coimbra, which is Portugal's oldest university and a must-see, even with the chapel being in the process of restauration. During the weekends the bus service is not very frequent. It took me about half an hour to walk to town. Since the hostel is up the hill and Coimbra is, just like many other cities in Portugal, a city where streets are paved with cobblestones and rarely lay flat, you really need to buy a decent pair of hiking shoes before you go to Portugal! Oh, start walking in your hiking shoes some weeks before you leave, to get used to your shoes, or otherwise your feet maight develop painfull blisters. On the day I left, Alvaro and Rafael were very friendly and helpfull. They helped me carry some luggage (I think I should carry it all myself, as a matter of assuming my responsability, but help is of course welcome and makes life easier). Alvaro and Rafael also came up with a possible solution for another night, but in the end I did not need to use their special offer. If you consider yourself old enough to look after yourself, then I would recommend you to stay at this hostel and enjoy visiting Coimbra.

It wasn't a welcome to us, we never saw Alvaro. Fotunately a portoguese woman took us to the house otherwise we would have never been found the place. For me it was very disquieting, but there were all the facilities. The bathrooms were dirty. The location was a bit far from the centre.

This place was great. Although really a simple dormitory room, everything was spotlessly clean, the place has charm and stule, and even during the week of student celebration it was very comfortably quiet.

I have found myself very at ease. Rooms aren't small and mine was very cosy and with all the necessary. I asked for an extra (hairdryer and Alvaro provided me one). Heating is functioning which means that once the temperature goes down guests won't have to worry. I stayed 8 nights (I was in Coimbra for work) and I think I will go back to it if necessary. Gaia

We loved the place so much!!!clean, colorful, original! the Organization was perfect, although we were not able to meet Rafael and Alvaro. However, they managed to make us feel at home! only the location was not so good because it is far from the Centre: with buses, however, we can reach it quite easily

Response from Guest House:
:-) Thank you Chiara. It was really a pity not to have meet you in person. Coimbra is a small city and a 10 min walking promenade down the street feeling the morning it´s a good way to begin the journey! :-) Hope to see you next time. Álvaro
