                The hostel is clean and light and situated 10 minutes walk from the centre of Lisbon. The staff were very helpful and the kitchen is well equipped.

                All credits go to Hostel lady who welcomed us,helped us to accomodate,even assisted us with free dinner and held 4 luggage pieces for 6-7 hours in her room free of charge until we returned from our Lisbon trip.Many thanks!

                Other that that,this hostel was one of our most horrible experiences.Not even a sign to show that it exists outside,very uncomfortable bed and pillows,veeeeery basic breakfast,almost empty room stinking of mould,toilet was 40 m away.We have slept 2 hours in total,barely enough to be able to visit Lisbon the next day.Will never return there!

                Its location is convenient. The room was clean. The double bed was comfortable. The rate is affordable for budget travellers.

                There is no private bathroom even I'm willing to pay more. But then again, it is a hostel.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                The staff was very nice and helpful. This can be recommended as a cheap sleeping place in the big city - for tourists who want to spend the day outdoors and only need a bed to sleep. Free Internet in the hostel.

                During the night a man tried to get into the room next door, since nobody was letting him in, he spent half an hour banging on the door with his fists and feet and shouting, making a lot of noise. Also the air conditioning from the opposite building was loud.

                Kind reception, close from the metro, free internet and T.v, very cheap price.

                Very good for a traveller and a short stay but noisy area and some problems which should be fixed like the bolt of the toilets!

              • Single

                I appreciated the location of the hostel.

                Being situated in an old building, the hostel has a nice atmosphere, but some door locks definitely need to be changed.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                Absolutely amazing and friendly staff who answered all our questions, who was extreamly friendly - and was great with my 4 year old son. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hostel. It was clean , great location very close to Marques de Pombal (like 2 minute walk), breakfast is simple but for the price we pay it was perfect.

                People were very nice! It is very near to an important Metro-Station and also to one of the beautiful Lisbon parks. Everything is easily accessible. The room (queen-size bedroom) was cozy and nice.There is a restaurant and a café next to hotel.

                very nice staff, only 10 min on foot to city center. As I didnt expect much for that price, the hostel was ok.

                that hostel claims to have breakfast included... I would say it is almost a lie, as there were only cheapest butter, jam and toast bread on the table of a really small kitchen with only 2 chairs.. We had to have breakfast in the city. Another thing- if one is travelling with a car, it will cost about 15 euros a day in the parkhouse near the hostel. I would advise to pay a bit more and find a hotel with normal breakfast and parkplace, cause it will cost the same.

                The recepcionist is a very friendly person and she speaks English very well

                The hostel is little bit noisy and the walls are not sound proof. If you have a bad luck you can get a snoring person next your door and your night can be a nightmare...

                Situation, very close to underground and bus station to Airport

                Hostel was not clean. No heating in the rooms! In the breakfast you must to wash your own dirty dishes!!!!

                9.2

                Very helpful English and Spanish-speaking hostess, she could provide us with all the information - where to eat,how to get around etc. There is a kitchen with all the equipment needed: grill.microwave,oven,coffemaker,tea-pot,fridge.There is a TV with tons of channels (incl. americal films and shows,music,sports).Hostal is just in 2 minutes walking from metro and cheap supermarket,there is a good portuguese restaurant next door,historical center and Gulbenkian museum can be reached by foot, there is a bus line from the hostal to Belem (727) and to the airport (22 or 44). And you can meet a lot of young people from all over the world there.

                No towels, breakfast is very simple: cacao/tea/coffee/chicory, bread,butter,jam,cereal.

                This was a great place to stay at while we were passing through Lisbon. The lady that runs the joint is very welcoming and helpful, and she made us feel right at home while we were staying there. She even did our washing for us for a reasonable price :) The rooms are super clean, the building is secure, and it's in a fantastic location, literally right next to a metro station, so getting around is simple. :D

                There's not many negative things to say about this place. We had a fantastic time while we were there, and we'd recommend it to all our friends going to Lisbon that need somewhere to stay.
