Located within a traditional and historical building in Funchal old town, Santa Maria Hostel is a boutique hostel featuring a vintage-style décor. The hostel offers a restaurant with an excellent variety of both international and local cuisine. Ranging from dorms to private accommodation, each unit at the Santa Maria is decorated with attention to detail in a very colorful way. Dorm rooms have lockers, individual reading lights and access to shared bathroom facilities. Extra bed is necessary to request to the Hostel. Guests can use a fully equipped kitchen to prepare their meals. The restaurant on the ground floor serves a variety of meals based on fish, from sushi to the freshly caught fish. A mezzanine floor encloses the lounge area, with a reading nook, a flat-screen TV and sofas. There is also an outdoor seating area, where guests are welcome to relax. The central location of Santa Maria means guests are a few steps from the lively bar street, and a cable car can also be found within walking distance. Santa Maria Hostel is 17 km from Madeira International Airport, and a chargeable airport shuttle is available. The Funchal Sé Cathedral is within 10 minutes’ walking.

    The location was excellent, just above one of the main streets. Although they dont have car parking there is an abundance within 5/10 minute walk, rooms were fresh and light and the staff were really helpful.

    Fantastic location in the centre of old town Funchal. I stayed in a 8 bed dorm - each bed had its own locker, lamp and sockets. Shared bathroom were always clean and good shower (important after a day's hiking)
