We stayed at this hostel as it appeared to be good value for money, but it really was very basic, and we could hear the comings and goings of all the residents, plus the road noise, meant that we got almost no sleep. If you are very young, and will be coming back late at night, and making noise, then... More

The location of this hostel is pretty bad. The nearest metro is about 10-15 minutes away. The rooms are relatively small (for 2 people) AND what ticked me off the most is I got accused and charged 20 euros for damaging their mattress. When they told me I had to pay up the receptionist was not able to show me... More

Had a pleasant 5 night stay at this hotel. The room was comfortable and clean but had no kettle or hairdryer, i had e mailed in advance to ask about the facilities and was told that there was an area that we could use a kettle and hairdryers were available at the reception desk. We decided to take a kettle... More

The hotel/hostel was basic but had all you needed, it was clean, comfy, good sized bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location within 15mins walk of the old centre of Lisbon and the same to the new district. There was a steep incline back from the old town. The nearest metro station was 5 mins walk away, also there... More

I booked the room and paid a deposit the day before our arrival. Confirmation arrived and everything seemed OK. We traveled the whole day (= no internet) to Lisbon and happily arrived at about 8 PM to the hostel. But when we wanted to check-in the receptionist said that our reservation had been cancelled. I asked her why, but she... More

Lady who greeted us was the biggest grump. Looked like she hated her job, and did not want to be there. We asked her for help for what to do in Lisbon and just gave us a pamphlet. Accidently spilt a little bit of water on the front desk and she went mental. Room had awesome aircon and blacked out... More

We stayed in the room 203,it was good but a little bit small for three person but the bathroom is very big and has a window. The room was not very soundproof. The receptionists were kind. When I made the booking they wrote that in the room will be the kettle and the hair dryer. It was good for us... More

Booked a cuadruple room for 35euros/night. The room was very spacious with air conditioning and high speed free wifi. The cleanliness was ok . The problem: we hadn't a bath towel for each of us. If you want a very cheap room to rest and visit Lisbon on foot, this is your place.
