Yes, you have to climb the stairs to the 4th floor, yes, it's noisy outside, since the street has lots of restaurants and cafes in it, but the location is perfect, and the price is extremely low. Hot water was hot, internet connection was fast, and the staff were friendly and efficient. The only thing we didn't like was that... More

In our trip to portugal we made a reservation in this hotel and when we arrived to the hotel (late at night) the reception man told us that he have cancelled the reservation ... We didn't know about the cancellation and it took us 3 hours to find another hotel at that terrible night..

We stayed here two nights while visiting Portugal and Spain. The hostal is on a pedestrian only street, so you have to park on the street and keep paying every 2 hours, or pay up and put the car in a garage. The staff spoke English and were very friendly and helpful with maps and recommendations. The street is filled... More

This hotel is located slap-bang between Alfama (old town, for the cathedral and castle, and tram route 28) and Bairro Alto (where the narrow streets come alive with bars after midnight!). It's a 10 minute walk to the waterfront, and a 2 minute walk from Rossio train station, tram stops and aerobus stop. Most importantly, it's about a 5 minute... More

We were positively surprised by the extremely cheap price, very central position, cleanliness, close to the best restaurants and shopping areas. Pubs area is around 10 minutes walk. Of course for the price the furniture was ok, only problem: our room was on the street so sometimes it was noisy til 1 or 2 am, which we didnt mind. Staff... More

Nicely located close to Rossio square. My friend and I got a twin room (1 double and 1 single) with bathroom for 17.50 each per night. The street is full of tacky retaurants but it's close to everythig else including the stop for the airport bus. The staff are fine, they don't speak much english, so the encounters are brief.

Arrived in Lisbon from Porto by train and had quit a walk from the train station to the centre of town. The hotel is located near the centre square and is very convenient. We arrived to a very rude concierge and had to pay cash upfront, no Visa or credit card accepted. The room was very old with retro interior... More
