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

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

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

The price is great for the location and quality. The bed and bathroom were clean as well as the living room. The staff was very polite and available. The breakfast was complete and delicious. There was no air conditioning, but for the price I think it's great.

It's too bad because although there were bed bugs the hostel was really good located and we... More
