Breakfast, cleen room and shared space, nice and helpful staff and location.
Close to everything in the old town center, huge (paid) parking lot next to the cable car terminal was big help, it was also very easy to get inside even though we arrived very late. Location is on the busy Santa Maria Street - so it's like good and bad at the same time :D
Noise, even through closed window I could hear everything what was happening outside on the busy street. First night (it was friday) I didn't sleep at all. I had to ask for earplugs at the reception, which is not open during a night so I waited till the morning. Floors are wooden, so if someone walked in shoes in the hall or in the next room, I felt like there's earthquake. I heard every step and also felt like my bed is moving. Even earplugs are not helping in case like this. We also went very soon for o trip (sunrise at Pico Arieiro) and there was no possibility to prepare something for us, instead of breakfast we could get that morning. I really didn't understand why. For 1 night, it's OK, but I don't recommend to stay longer.
I like location and spirit of the hostel. Breakfast is really decent like for a hostel and common zone is great. Reception is very friendly.
It would be great that rooms are from garden side not noisy street.
The eggs were fluffy and the staff were smiley and helpful.
Very good location, nice and friendly staff, not overcrowded, good breakfast, very clean, nice historical building.
