We arrive in Sintra after a week around Portugal. Sintra is truly magical. We spent 2 nights here. The hostel is close to the center but in a very quiet location and this has allowed us to relax after the long walk of the day. Pleasant atmosphere in the common areas. Room was spacious and clean, relaxing environment in the... More

Me and my daughter(17) stayed here for 4 nights and was very happy with our choice. The hostel is located near the centre, 5 minutes walk, and the rooms are clean and cosy. We had a private room and shared a bathroom with only one other room. It's an old house so you can hear if people are noisy in... More

This Hostel is gourgeous, glamourous and amazing. The best place to relax and to have some privacy during vacations. The garden is lovely and the perfect spot to lunch or to relax. The team that works there is fantastic and ready to help everybody :)

We visited Sintra so I could celebrate my birthday in the atmospheric grottos the Quinta da Regaleira. to our astonishment, the room we booked actually looked out over the Quinta, and the Pena palace was in sight as well among the wooded hillside views. The hostel itself is a quaint little mansion we could spot looking back across the valley... More

I cannot recommend this hostel more highly! It is beautiful, clean and the staff is ridiculously awesome. They were so gracious, accommodating and inclusive. They made a bonfire at night and everyone in the hostel hung out around the fire, drinking port wine and getting to know one another. We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed... More

This hostel is great value in a great location just a stones throw away from the heart of the old centre. The staff went went of their way to help us, Pedro, who first checked us in could not have been more helpful in his advice about where to go and best places to eat. The hostel has a great... More

This is a great hostel. It is clean, affordable, and run by people who genuinely care about their job and their guests. The gardens are a great place to relax, read a book, listen to music, or chat with others. There is a full kitchen to for everyone to use or the staff prepares a dinner almost every night for...

Just an amazing hostel! The staff is superfriendly, and there is a relaxing vibe around the hostel and the people that you'll rarely find. The beautiful garden definitely contributes to the general level of coziness; it is wonderful.

This is a very beautiful old building, with a fabulous garden and gorgeous views. As with all of Sintra, it is on a pretty terrifying hill. I learned to drive stick-shift while we were in Portugal, so I was a little freaked out! But the good thing is, we found street parking right outside the hostel. The location is fine.... More

My husband and I started staying in NiceWay when they were just starting out, at a different location. They so love what they do that it a joy to be around them. They speak English well, so don't hesitate to call them to ask about rooms. They have several kinds of rooms, but not a lot of them, so be... More
