In the end i... More

I say probably not because I have been to all others, but because I believe it very hard to top. Super clean well located and cozy, very interesting places nearby, staff is warm, view is inspiring, food is traditional and the owners are super nice people. It is not a place to party, it is a place to enjoy and... More

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
