Santa Maria Hostel is a unique option in Funchal because it's actually located in what was once an elementary school. The building has been fully renovated but it still has some interesting characteristics such as tall walls and wooden floors. The hostel has a large common area that is furnished with large sofas, armchairs, and a television. This is a nice place to relax and meet other travelers. If you want a quiet place to hang out, there's a mezzanine and reading area upstairs. There's also free wi-fi available throughout the building. Behind the hostel there is a nice outdoor space with lounge furniture. This is the perfect space to enjoy the island's pleasant climate.
The hostel has a variety of amenities available for guests including a fully kitchen and dining area. Breakfast is served every morning and included in the price of the room. There's also an on-site restaurant and bar that is quite good.
The staff at the hostel are wonderful and friendly. They can help you with any travel information that you might need. The hostel has private twin rooms as well as dorms that sleep four or eight people. The bathrooms are large and modern and hot water is available all day. Dorms have bunk beds, security lockers, reading lights, and power outlets.
