Say HI to HI Guimarães

07.03.2019

After the Stayokay Vondelpark in Amsterdam, we present our next stop, also member of Hostelling International, a non-profit organisation that manages a federation of non-profit youth hostel associations. The city of Guimarães is also located in Europe and its hostel HI Guimarães welcomes you during your stay.

Why should you go

Guimarães, also called, ‘the birthplace of the Portuguese nationality’ is a must see for those interested in exploring the north of Portugal. A UNESCO World Heritage since 2001, the city is, according to the UN organisation, an ‘exceptionally well-preserved and authentic example of the evolution of a medieval settlement into a modern town’.

Picturesque plazas, ancient palaces and, a 1000-year-old castle are the highlights of an ever-evolving city where history mixes itself with culture and modernity.

Home of one of the biggest universities in the country, Guimarães is an old town with a young spirit, with its students giving vitality to the narrow historic streets. The visitors will have plenty to do besides sightseeing and history. Bars, clubs, concerts, and cultural exhibitions are abundant all days of the week.

The hostel in a nutshell

The youth hostel is located right in the city centre, where the action happens. This long-standing building was recently restored and is thus the perfect place to start feeling the magic that goes through the medieval streets.

With 72 beds, the visitor can stay in a shared room or in a private one with an ensuite bathroom. The breakfast can be enjoyed in the garden. After a tour through the city, the traveller may chill in the hostels’ lounge right in the attic. It’s a perfect place to put the reading and writing up to date.

Furthermore, the hostel has a restaurant for groups (upon request), free wi-fi, lockers, vending machine and a games and TV room.
