There was a group of us staying in this hotel in June, two couples and one single person. As it was only listed as 2 star on Lastminute.com we didn't have great expectations and i did start getting quite worried. It was only a place to rest our head so it was absolutely fine for that purpose. As you get... More

As I was travelling with my 10 year old son, I didn't want a hostel. This was advertised as a hotel and wasn't cheap, £300 approx for 2 nights. After finally climbing the stairs to the 4th floor and arriving in room 201, I was far from happy, our booking clearly showed our names and ages, but we were put... More

We have been on the road for 12 months, this was accommodation we would not return to. The location was perfect - right in the heart of the tourist area and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. The reception were friendly and helpful - no problems there. They were genuinely really nice people. The main problem was that for 90 Euros... More

The hostel is very basic, but clean, excellent location, the staff is very friendly and polite, surprisingly with room service, so we had fresh towels every day 😊 The only disadvantage; there was no air condition in our room, so during the night was bit to hot and humid. One more thing if you want to eat any where near... More

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
