  • Hi there! This looks like an ideal place for a solo traveller passing by. I just want to ask if there are lockers in the hostel to put valuables and how big they are. I travel with an instrument that I need to be sure will be safe the moments I am out and about. Please let me know and thank you!

    Olá, Thank you very much for your interest. Yes we do have, all beds have their private draw and we have padlocks at the reception. If your instrument doesn't fit in the draw we can store it in our private room, safely. Kind Regards
