I wrote this letter to the owner and received NO response at all. Clearly they are not even concerned about their reviewing base customers. "Dear Sir/Madam, As I have just been prompted to write a review of my stay at your hostel (from March 25th-31st), I wanted to communicate some issues I had with your hostel with you first. I... More

This hostel is in a perfect location: not too close or too far from the city. Nearby towns and great surf spots are easily accessible via the train, metro and bus lines. The guys behind the desk are very friendly and always willing to help however they can. The kitchen wasn't great but when one considers the price I really... More

Enjoyable stay in the Belem area with museums close by. Bus and Trolley a few steps away. Nice quite rooms in the back of building, good breakfast in the morning. Even a laundry service for a few euros.

Unfortunately the room's floors and toilets facilities was very dirty. Also there were so many noises during the night. I complained in the reception, even thought nobody cared about it. They should have a silence time rule for all the guests.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!!! Clean, quiet, nice breakfast, warm welcome and service! Andre (I might have spelled it wrong, sorry if I have) went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. I seriously haven't got anything negative to think of about that place! Sintra is beautiful and quite different for what one might think of when speaking about Portugal! Lovely... More

For my first hostel experience, I couldn't have asked for anything more. the staff was amazing and the atmosphere was great. The hostel is a 15 min bus ride to the center of Lisbon but is still located in a beautiful and historic area. The food nearby is so good too! Fantastic hostel.

Staff was really friendly and atmosphere was great. Breakfast is included, too. Really great value for money. It's little far from main train station, but location is pretty nice. St. Jeronimos monastery and Torre de Belem are nearby and I recommend visiting them. I didn't really like bathrooms: cabins are small and doors are almost transparent, but they were actually... More

We stayed one night here on or way to Ericeira and found the area was good and the hostel has nice new decor and is quite clean. The downside is that the beds were very uncomfortable and noisy and the service was very slow and unreliable.

Bad: - Small... More

I choose this hostel due to its location (I have to attend a conference nearby). With the hot weather of Lisbon, this hostel only provides 2 shower rooms for 4-5 dorms! The shower always in traffic in the morning and dirty after. Lucky (or poorly) the cleaning lady is very clean freak. She does a very good job in cleaning... More
