A good hostel for solo travellers and backpackers.
Residencial Zarco is located in the heart of Funchal's historic area. It has a nice view of the ocean and is near many of the town's top sights including museums, shops, and restaurants. There are plenty of activities nearby and the main bus station is also close by. From there you can catch buses that go all over the island. This is an affordable hostel in an excellent location, but the rooms can seem a bit dark and small. The staff are friendly and helpful though, and they'll do their best to ensure that your stay goes as smoothly as possible.
The hostel has 21 rooms that each have their own private bathroom, a direct dial telephone, and cable television. There's a reception desk that's open 24 hours a day and the rooms are cleaned daily. Breakfast is served every morning for a small fee and there is laundry service available.
The hostel has single, twin, double, and three bed private rooms.
