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.

We loved our stay here! This is such a great hostel with amazing staff and owners and such an important mission! We loved hanging out with the cats and dogs. The rooms are spacious and the shared space is really nice and communal. Thanks Simabo!

Simabo's backpackers hostel in Mindelo is a great place to stay with its friendly, welcoming Italian couple who work so hard to look after both guests and stray animals. Sylvia and Paulo are helpful with all enquiries, easy to approach and have suggestions for what to do whilst in Mindelo. Each guest's stay is helping to assist their project to raise awareness on animal welfare and thus an added bonus.
