Our mission is to reduce the number of strays on the island of Sao Vicente, Cape Verde, thus avoiding poisoning campaigns by the municipality.
Our goal is to help the cats and dogs living on the streets of Sao Vicente, Cape Verde, West Africa, to reduce the number of stray dogs through free castration campaigns, and to increase animal rights awareness in the local community.
At our hostel, you will meet travelers from every part of the world, and you will be able to meet our volunteers and our staff and to visit the project.
The hostel is very near to the beach and to the center of town, so it will be very easy to get the best of your holiday time.
The ferry station to Santo Antao is within walking distance, and we can keep your big luggage if you like to travel lighter only for a few days.
We can provide information about any other island and also reservations of hostels and flights everywhere in Cape Verde.
In a sentence: the best place for a wonderful holiday and discovery travel in Cape Verde!
Vegan food options.
At the hostel, you will be welcomed by our office staff, who is responsible for the check-in of guests as well!

Here are some instructions to reach us from the airport or from the harbor.
If it’s your first time in CV/Sao Vicente, please take a taxi from the airport and tell the driver to take you to SIMABO’s Hostel. All of them know us very well!
Taxi costs 1000 esc. / 10 euros.
If you have already been in Cabo Verde before, and you know how “aluguers” work, you might want to take the minibus coming from San Pedro, but they don’t stop at the airport, so you must go from the airport to the main road on foot and wait there for one passing by. They cost 100esc = 1 Euro/person. Once in town, aluguers stop at the market place (Praça Estrela). From Praça Estrela or from the harbor you can take a taxi to SIMABO’s hostel (150 esc.) or come on foot by walking all the way along the seaside to the beach and from the first roundabout there the only road uphill on the right. You will have to walk along with a very big blue school. If you have a GPS on your phone it won’t be difficult to find us. If you don’t have, just after the long blue school you will find a small square on the right, and a minimarket on the other side of the street, please go about 200 mts further up and turn into the first left, uphill again. You will see in front of you, on the other side of the street, a pink house named CASA COMBA. Side by side to Casa Comba is a green house, with white balconies, no. 13. Please go into the small street to the front side of the green house, and one more door down and you’ll find our hostel!
