Location is absolutely superb. Just off a main square. Perfect base for exploring the landmarks and great for going out for food and drinks in the Bairro Alto. Breakfast is adequate and views from rooms are great. Friendly staff etc. would probably suit groups better than couples. Only down side I would say is having a shared bathroom (although the...

My friend and I stayed here 7 nights and the staff were mostly lovely(except night time guy), breakfast was very passable. Just had a few issues like with the WiFi; we didn't care that it didn't reach our room but every night at about 9pm the password would change and then inexplicably change back the next morning. Got sick of... More

Although location is perfect, there are some aspects that should be consider while choosing this establishment. Most of the stuff in hostel is lite bit worn out. Walls are VERY thin. Breakfast is out around 9:30, even though it should be there to at least 11. Cleanliness of bathrooms should be improved. Last thing is that there is no heating... More

Very central in the heart of Lisboa, close to all main monuments and with a great connection to airport. The room was good and clean and the breakfast is included in the price. The best thing is the very affordable price for such a great location!

I usually stay in budget hotels booked by my travel agent but this time I decided to try something different for a short city break. I liked a lot of this place, for half of the price that I usually pay at a hotel, I got a premium location, a good breakfast, clean facilities and a very welcoming staff. I... More

I stayed there on this loast weekend and I am very satisfied with the place. It is right in the center of the city, close to metro, buses and trams to everywhere. The staff was also great! I had to leave really early today and they prepared breakfast for me at 5:30! Where can you find this kind of service!?... More

We spent three nights here and enjoyed being close to all the action in Baxio-Chaido. Excellent location in Rossio square and close to the train and metro station. Best location to get to Sintra. Three floors up so the view is incredible. Staff are friendly and helpful. The shared bathrooms are very clean. A hot breakfast is included. Very good... More

I spent a single night there after having been recommended the place by my former hotel's crew. It's really ideally located specially if you're to arrive or leave from/to the Sintra train or connectto the airport. I didn't bother much about the slightly filthy side road entrance either. Staff was friendly at first. They didn't seem to care for the... More
