SIMABO is an association for the protection of animals that was recognized as a charity of public utility by the Capeverdean government in 2013. 'Sima bo' is a Creole expression that means 'like you'. Our main objective is to spay/neuter as many animals as possible on the island, to avoid poisoning campaigns and other cruel and useless means used by the local authorities against street dogs and cats. Our project, based on the three pillars of castration, deworming and adoption, is the first and only one of this kind that received a EU-grant worldwide to date. SIMABO employ 12 workers, all Capeverdeans, whose salary derives from the hostel's revenues. Any sensible traveller will be able to assess how sweet and innocent these animals are, and will have the possibility to visit our shelter and clinic to have a glimpse our daily work! By visiting Mindelo and Sao Vicente with us, or by staying at our Hostel, you will contribute directly to our cause and to the salaries of our workers without additional costs for you.

Please note that we don't have animals at the Hostel, but you can visit our shelters and our clinic at any time during your stay.

Great place to be in Mindelo! Silvia is such a nice and helpful owner! She answers all your emails and questions, can give you advice on everything. She also helped me with belongings I forgot in the room. She really cares about her guests! Rooms are nice and clean, beds are comfortable, comunal rooms are cosy, the kitchen is well equipped, location is very central. Just perfect! I will come back soon!

Simabo's is execellent! It's just fun living there! I stayed 9 nights and Silvia and her team tried to make everything possible. It is very clean, cause really everybody bothers about a tidy kitchen. On top some ladies clean really every day. Best thing: everything earned with the hostel goes straight into rescuing streetanimals. The shelter is worth a visit so you can walk the dogs.

Simabo ist eine sehr gute Wahl, alleine schon aus dem Grund, weil die Einnahmen in die Tierrettungsstation von Silvia fliessen. Das Haus ist sauber und funktional, die Lage nahe von der Fähre und dem Strand. Wer jedoch viele Infos und Unterstützungsleistungen seitens des Hostels benötigt, der sollte an ein anderes Ort gehen und auch mehr bezahlen.
