We've arrived before the check in starts but young lady who works there immediately accommodated us! Our twin room was very clean and spacious with little balcony. Breakfast was also very good compared the price you are paying for. Location is amazing, just couple of minutes from Lisbon very city centre. Great value for money. I recommend 100%

I was with a group with 7 people. Location of this hostel is very good, close to most tourist attaractions and sights in Lisboa. Metro is close as well as city center, and there is a market that works until 21:00h where you can buy food (200m from hostel) Comparing to other similar hotels nearby they are cheaper, and yet...

I've stayed in the Stay cool hostel in september 2014. Most of the time the hostel appeared clean and tidy, except for one day, where the girl who runned the reception in the morning was missing. A young, very flamboyant guy, who usually worked in the afternoon, was in charge of the hostel. The toilet paper run out on all... More

The hostel is close to everything you want to... More

The receptionists - especially Aline and Florentina - are nice and helpful, but the living conditions are awful. The room was not like in the description from Booking and I had to talk with the owner about it. They offered us 10% discount for the discrepancy between reality and description. However, I would have leaved if my husband wasn’t with... More

The hostel is located near the city center, everything that is required is in walking distance. We've arrived to Lisbon late evening, but the hostes waited for us so we could check-in at midnight (this was discussed via e-mail). The staff is very nice and helpful in providing information about the city. We had the room for two with one... More

The bed was wobbly and noisy, the doors are thin but we were lucky with all the other... More
