We booked our stay for 7 nights. On arrival the staff was very friendly and the room seemed very clean. in the first morning several mosquito-like bites appeared on the skin. On four consecutive days the severity of the bites increased and made me awake early in the morning 5-7 bites per night), my partner had only few bites during... More

Upon arrival we first were a bit sceptical, as the entry area looks quite shabby. But once you're inside, everything looks nice and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We booked a double room and were positively surprised by the size and style of the room. The room looked, and was furnished, to the standard of a mid-priced hotel,... More

We stayed here three nights on our trip to Lisbon. The hostel is situated right next to Rossio square; this means you have all the interesting areas of the town within walking distance. Perfect for a long weekend exploring Lisbon by foot. Staff members were very nice and welcoming and all spoke english. They answered all our questions and gave... More

Great stay. Everything in the guesthouse is new, the rooms are clean and there is lots of light, my room had a shared bathroom with a new shower cabin and a good hot shower, shower cleanliness was ok. Sleep quality was good, the street outside is not too noisy at night even if you choose to open the windows, and... More

My friend booked this hotel for us and I was a little sceptical when it turned out to be a hostel as I've had bad experiences before in super budget accommodation. However, I could not have been more wrong. The hotel is ideally situated in the Rosia district close to a number of pretty squares and restaurants, and not far... More

If you are a budget traveller and planning to be in Lisbon just for few days, I think it's the best choice. It's excellent location, right next Rossio train station (really recommend trip to Sintra) and city centre. There are nice, clean and good looking rooms with possibility of your own bathroom. What I only seemed annoying were too thin... More

I was a little skeptical having had some bad experience in this grade of accomodation before, however this establishment was great. Value for money was wonderful, and it was perfectly located in the heart of downtown Lisbon. Wifi signal was strong and they let us check in early (we dropped off our luggage in the room, the room wasn't actually... More

It's a very nice, super-clean guest house. Location is perfect for site-seeing in Lisbon or trips out of Rossio station, and only a 20-minute cab ride from the airport. The staff were helpful and all spoke good English. The bathrooms and bedrooms were beautiful for the price you pay. This is a really nice place to stay .....you're really close... More

It's a very nice, super-clean hotel and the pricing can't be beat. Service is fantastic -- there was always someone available at the front desk willing to go out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. Nothing about the furnishings or bathrooms was luxurious but everything was well put together. Location is perfect for site-seeing in Lisbon or trips... More

While we were there, this hostel was undergoing renovations. Although they didn’t have a record of our reservation they accommodated us but it seemed like we were the only guests as the other rooms were being renovated. I was worried it would be noisy in the morning with the renovations but we didn't hear a thing. The staff were friendly.... More
