The room was clearly dirty when I arrived. There are no heating or blankets enough during the winter in the room. The bathrooms are disgusting (very dirty) and there is no toilet paper or soap for washing hands. The breakfast is awful. The food ends and the staff do not replace it. We have to ask for everything, since a... More

The experience with this Hostel was simply a nightmare and we decided to stay one day less to not ruin our visit to Lisbon. The bathrooms were unbelievably dirty. There was no toilet paper and the smell was unbearable. The bedrooms were also disgusting and we also realized that the bedding and blankets were not cleaned, as well as the... More

The location of the hostal is perfect. Not exactly in the center, but you have around at least 5 bus stations and trams. It is 2 minutes walking from Jeronimos Monastery, few minutes from the Tajo river, and also close to Discoveries monument and Vasco da Gama monument. Also, on the corner you can find great bakeries with traditional products.... More

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...

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
