The hostel is in a great place in the castle district. Excellent to visit the old part of Lisbon. It has a huge terrace with an awesome view. The staff is extremely friendly and gives very good tips. Not only allowed me to have dinner in a nice typical restaurant and I saved money.

My 5 friends and I were traveling around Europe during our spring break for our study abroad program in the UK last year. I have backpacked all around Europe and this is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It was easy to contact the hostel to tell them that one of my friends will be arriving before us... More

Very nice place to drop in and stay for one or few night. The atmosphere is perfect, the bathroom is clean. There is separetly bathroom for women and men. The breakfest is very tasty. I recommand this hotel and especially the taras and the panorama of the beautiful city.

One word: AMAZING. Super clean and environmentally friendly. The terrace is beautiful and the atmosphere is very quite and relaxed but at the same time everyone is very talkative and friendly. The staff is great as well, very helpful with everything. I totally recomend it to everyone.

This hostel is with out a doubt one of the nicest and most erlaxed hostels I have had the pleasure to stay in! I was just planning on spending a night in Lisbon but due to unforseen circumstances I had to stay longer- and do I regret it? NO! Besides Lisbon being a fascinating town, the hostel has a warm...

We stayed here for three nights as a couple and it was great. Good location for the castle, perhaps a little out of the way for the centre, although there are two free public lifts which make it easier! It was fine for us being young and healthy but just a heads up for anyone who may have problems with... More

All I can say to describe the hostel is: PERFECT. I arrived with my dog, and she was allowed to stay here. Not just allowed, but loved, cuddled, and well cared by the staff. To be proper, by the really-really nice lady and boy. Thank you again for it, you are the best! :) A few words about the hostel... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights and all I could say is the place was phenomenal. Great vibes come from the staff and the fellow travelers. Even though I didn't participate, they had some great activities for their guests. The complementary breakfast has all the essentials one would need. The only reason I don't give this hostel a...

Good location with a great rooftop terrace but rude staff (not all but most) and no atmosphere at all for youths. Little to no events held too. Good facilities but not for the youth id say. Majority old people staying here also, aka no atmosphere!

Hi Travelerdyldo, Unfortunately you didn't leave your name so we could give you a better feedback. Would you be so kind of letting us know which period you stayed here at the Hostel? We always accept feedback, no doubt it's a way of improving the quality of our service. Regarding the lack of atmosphere, we are definitely not a party... More
