Get to know Aveiro (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Aveiro.

A small, low-key Moorish city in northern Portugal, Aveiro is Portuguese’s cross between Venice and Faro, with canals seeping through its quintessentially quaint Portuguese city and sandy beaches on its periphery.

The locals are very friendly and clubs and small eatery stalls stay open until early morning. The small town feels safe even in the wee hours of the night. Praca do Peixe (which literally translates to Fish Market) is the main square where the clubs and crowds congregate. Walking along the canals is a good way to take in the city’s vintage maritime charms, but if you fancy exploring the city by bike, there is a free bike scheme available, BUGA. Leave an ID with them as your deposit, and collect it before 7 p.m. every evening.

As with all Portuguese cuisine, those enjoying seafood will be most rewarded. Prices are very reasonable, and the local fare has a distinctive Mediterranean flavor –- featuring hints of olives, paprika, and fish. Aveiro is known locally for “Ovos Moles,” a local dessert consisting of a shell-shaped casing filled with egg yolks and sugar. A less-well-known local delicacy worth trying is “Doce de Bolacha/Casa,” a layered dessert of condensed milk and eggs, coffee-soaked biscuits, and fluffy beaten egg whites.

Most hostels in Aveiro are residential, quirky, and very well maintained, with many of them offering water sport activities in the summer. Aveiro is not a large city, and many of the hostels in Aveiro are converted from residential homes. The standard of accommodation is usually very good and well designed for communal living in the quiet atmosphere of this little city.
