My husband and I stayed in one of the private rooms on the top floor and really enjoyed the quirky homey feel of the room. The garden was a great place to hang out during down time and would be especially nice if you have been traveling awhile and need a place to just relax. The staff was friendly and... More

The hostel itself is a quirky place with a large garden where you can chill out on a nice evening or spend relaxing afternoon reading a book. I really liked decoration of the dining room. Breakfast was basic but ok. It is common to have bread, butter, jam, tea & coffee for breakfast at hostels. It can get a bit... More

I stayed in the dorm for two nights and loved it. From the comfortable living room, to the perfect garden its a great place to stay. Staff were nice and helpful too. All in all a very homely experience.

Inspired by numerous generous reviews we booked a room here for two days and were VERY disappointed by following: - found hair on the floor in the room and in the bathroom - the room is not just moist, it's soaking wet; in the morning walls close to the window are covered with water - bathroom is crappy, even nowhere...

Gorgeous hostel. Wonderful inside and out. I could live here. Was sad we only spent one night for sure. Great price. Stayed with my daughter and a friend. We even took baths! If you are going to Sintra, you should definitely stay here. Highest recommendations. Seriously, I would go back to Sintra again just to stay in this Palace :... More

Nice Way Sintra Palace is strategically located 3-4 minutes away by walk from Sintra's historical centre yet tucked away from the hustle and bustle of more touristy parts of town. Housed in a palace like-old house (hence the name!) renovated and decorated with a taste for colour and space, Nice Way is pleasing to the eye and warming to the... More

Long overdue review as we stayed in mid November, but still valid. We arrived late and sodden one night and they sorted us right out. So much stuff in that you'd never expect to find in a hostel - free towels, fresh coffee etc. the garden was so cool too! Allan was beyond helpful, he gave us a map and... More

Big shout out to the staff at Nice Way. Would recommend for travelers who enjoy a relaxed and inviting environment. The guys are great and helpful. Our computer was stolen from our car earlier in the day and they made sure we had enough beer and chill time in the garden, recommended a nice local Portuguese restaurant and lent us... More

As soon as we arrived, a staff member gave us a lot of priceless information about the sights in and around Sintra. He also showed us some excellent hikes in the park. Great location in the city (5 min walk from center). Dorms and bathrooms are clean. The included breakfest is also good (toasts, cereals and coffee).
