"When I went to the Douro Valley, I accidentally found myself in this hostel and it was lovely. Whoever goes to this beautiful valley should stay overnight or longer in Pinhao at this hostel. It’s brand new, super clean, nicely decorated and has a wonderful terrace and garden where you can relax peacefully surrounded by the hills and nature during the day or chat with other guests and the owner in the evening. Because the highlight of this hostel is not the terrace or the garden, but Pedro, the owner and a local. He loves his job, is great with the guests and is always present to help with anything and for a good chat or a nice evening in the terrace with his guests. So this place is more than a hostel and I highly recommend it to whoever is visiting the area. It’s not just a backpackers’ place, because apart from the dorms there are also double and single rooms with private bathrooms. So it is suitable for anyone: solo travellers, couples, friends and families. Go there and enjoy the valley, the terrace, the garden and Pedro’s company. I will definitely go back one day!…"
"Pedro is a backpacker and an experienced traveler and just opened his hostel in the very authentic village of Pinhão in the heart of the Douro Valley. This is not your average hostel. We booked the private room and bathroom and totally enjoyed the hostel experience. Pedros moms flan cake with wine and port after dinner on the rooftop terrace with an amazing view and Pedro and other guests was fantastic after the authentic Portuguese dinner at a restaurant Pedro recommended. And caped off the day and night in this great town. If you don’t think you can stay in a hostel you should consider Pedros."
"Edifício renovado, interior com aspeto moderno, espaço muito limpo e bastante acolhedor. Fui recebido pelo Pedro melhor que em casa de alguns familiares. Decerto voltarei e recomendo"

"Esse hostel é uma excelente opção na região do douro. Nem pense duas vezes! A sua localização é muito boa, o hostel está novinho (recém inaugurado). Tudo é muito confortável, organizado e limpo. A atenção que o dono, Pedro, dá ao hóspede, merece nota 10 também! Os quartos são amplos, tem ar condicionado, secador de cabelo, blackout nas janelas. O Pedro disponibiliza frutas, limonada, água e outras opções na recepção e você pode se servir livremente! Foi uma grande surpresa, voltarei com certeza!"
"Brand new hostel in a great location close to the train and all the sites around Pinhao. Pedro was so welcoming and gave us a great run down on everything to see and do. We stayed 4 nights and it was perfect to slow down and take time to really see everything, from the people to the food to the wine and port this was a perfect place to experience it all. We stayed in the double room with en-suite and it was perfect. Congrats Pedro on such a great hostel!"
