Loved my stay. The staff were helpful, the hostal super clean and quiet and in a great location. Lots of room in the dorms, with individual lamps and lockers. The only downside are the push button showers, if only they'd last a bit longer. But overall a great stay.

When I checked in, I rang the bell for a long time and nobody answered. I started panicking thinking that maybe I had misunderstood and the reception wasn't open all day, so I checked online on my phone, and yes, it should have been open. The taxi driver saw me standing by the door with my luggage looking lost and... More

I was looking through many options on where to stay in Lisbon. I chose this one based on its "excellent" reviews. Wow, was I disappointed. I mean the staff is nice, and the location is okay, but other than that, I wasn´t very comfortable there. I wanted to use a towel, they charged me 1€, and when they gave me... More

However, once we reached there, we felt very welcomed & at home! the hostel is located in the heart of Lisbon and its about 5min walk from Baxia/Chiado metro... More

You know in hostels you'll get what you pay for (usually not a 5 star service or place) but this place is fantastic. It's located a few steps from Baixa Chiado (metrostation) and a few steps to the cool places in Bairro Alto (great nightlife), yet it's in a quiet street so you'll be able to sleep. The rooms are...

It's really the best hostel I've ever been so far. Not just because of its location that is perfect, right in the center with every point of interest in a walking distance, but also for the hostel itself. The staff is wonderful, always willing to help, to have a nice conversation or even to have some drinks or party at... More

Thank you for your review and for your nice words about our hostel and location. Just a few points: Basins: they indeed do have warm water, but you may need to wait a little bit it to start. Group: we can understand and are sorry for your discomfort with the situation, but we cannot discriminate or refuse guests for any... More

I've been here twice now and stayed both in a dorm with 8 beds and a private room as well. Its probably the best value for money I've spent on a hostel/hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, willing to help you with anything you might ask. They all seem to be bi or trilingual, meaning that they sometimes can help... More

The location is really excellent, in the center of the city! The staff was nice and helpful, breakfast was good, and even the beds were ok. The reception works 24 hours, which is great thing. The kitchen and the living room are comfy and nice to spend time and relax. Everything was clean and fresh. I would love to come... More
