This hostel has the most friendly staff and is very cosy. The rooms are very clean and lovely decorated. And breakfast is awesome! In the summer it gets really warm (maybe a bit too warm). And although you can book a double bed, they often don't have one. So they keep moving people around to get everyone in the right... More

My friend and I stayed here for 1 night last week, the hostel itself is really difficult to find - there was no sign outside to say we were at the right place, we just happened to notice on the buzzer that it said Smile which you would miss if you werent looking. The hostel itself is then on the... More

We stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. As it's off the beaten track it was a little hard to find, but that is the only drawback. Our stay was excellent value for money, great breakfast and the staff were outstandingly helpful. Lovely atmosphere, great rooms and clean bathrooms. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We had a reservation here, arrived to the hostel at 8 pm from the airport and no one was there. The hostel is poorly marked in the first place, but after we thought we had figured out which buzzer it was at the address, no one answered. Someone from another apartment let us in, and showed us which door was... More

Situated close to the beach and downtown Lisbon. The breakfast was great and until 11am which you don't find often plus fresh towels everyday. Most of the staff were helpful but one spoke very poor english and there was difficulty communicating with her when we tried to check-in. Our room was next to the road traffic outside so it was...

This hotel is very well situated to access downtown Lisbon. The is a secured paying parking about 300 meters from the hostel. Room and bathroom was clean. Excellent breakfast. The only drawback was the specific location of the double bed private room which is next to the common room and kitchen. Noisy.

I only went there because the internet says there is a launderette or in the same street. There are no launderettes in Lisbon and hardly any in portugal. They have a washing machine and charge 5 euros a half load and 10 for a full load 7kg. There is no dryer and you must wait a while for the sun... More
