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

I loved the homely feel of this small, charming, character hostel so much I didn't want to leave! Great location just down the road from the main touristy area (although it is a 30min walk to the nearest supermarket), well equipped, clean kitchen (with a dishwasher, which was a bonus), beautiful garden to relax in, very comfortable bed (we stayed...

Nice Way Sintra is nice. Very nice. Chilled, quirky and happy to help staff will tempt you into staying longer... obviously the area of Sintra is simply beautiful!!! That of course helps! The staff are really enthusiastic and adore where they work which is so refreshing. The included breakfasts are a little bland, bread & cereals but otherwise I couldnt... More

Nice way is a fantastic hostel with a lovely garden, but the best part is the really friendly staff. They will help you with whatever you need and give you great recommendations where to eat and what to see. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm, a big clean room with a fantastic view.
