National Youth Hostels of Portugal: "Youth Hostel" Portugal Hotel Tip by Martin_S.

Portugal Hotels: 188 reviews and 210 photos

We stayed in the youth hostel at Foz Coa in the north and we were surprised and pleased by the place. It is situated a little out of town so would be inconvenient for anyone without a car, but for a twin room we paid only 26 Euro a night, an excellent price. Some of the facilities have only shared bathrooms and showers, we opted for the en suite (in the room), which costs more.
They also gave us a simple and sparse breakfast, but it was sufficient to begin the day. They also have washing machines which is a plus for travelers.

In Portugal there is a system of 46 hostels spread across the country and another 8 in the islands.
