When you think of Portugal near-tropical beach scenes are likely to flood the mind—that, or images of futbol star Cristiano Ronaldo—but the Movijovem Youth Hostel by ComA Architecture and Design show a rustic, snow-filled landscape. Located in Penhas da Saúde, Serra da Estrela, Portugal, this hostel offers an affordable mountain getaway.

The design is actually an extension of the old youth hostel. Boasting 20 rooms, a living room and other amenities the Movijovem Youth Hostel by ComA mostly serves young patrons. The new design maximizes natural light and creates open, welcoming spaces while maintaining the heritage of the barn-like existing building.
