Located in the heart of Santa Catarina, about 3 minutes walk from the metro station. Rooms and shared spaces are clean, comfortable and well designed, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. You will definitely make friends or at least have some nice conversations there, the kitchen and the garden are really vibrant.

One of the most beautiful hostels in Portugal in the city center with beautiful inside design and friendly owners. Good breakfast is included. Really cool music on reception. I wanted to use Shazam every time downstairs. Bonus! You can always enjoy the view on nice host guy who looks like Lenny Kravitz in youth)

This hostel is perfect if you want somewhere clean, spacious, comfortable, and conveniently located to the metro and walking distance to most things downtown. The back courtyard is truly serene... try bringing your breakfast out there and enjoying the morning sun as the owner steps out to peacefully water the plants. You can certainly make friends here, or simply sit... More

This hostel was really good. The service was great: from the simpathy and helpness of the staff, the quality of the rooms and the facilities in geral. The beds were a surprise, being probably more confortable than the beds of more expensive hotels I've slept in.

The hostel, two times visited in one year, is great in Hospitality but i am afraid getting too popular for the kitchen and livingroom .. It has everything to be happy in a hostel and very ideal close to everything ! The private room is super, the rooms are great. I missed the tomatoes at the included breakfast :) You... More

As I was doing my first "on-m-own-trip" I was very nervous how it's going to be. My first stop was in Garden House Hostel and I could not imagine having a better start than I had here. The rooms are big but also cozy, very clean and the service there is just awesome. The people working there are very helpful... More

Spent one night in this Garden House hostel. It is clean, easily accessible, you get free breakfast, free walking tours, friendly people, free wifi and computers, clean toilets and there is always someone at the reception to help you- it's just perfect :D

Disliked : - Wifi is really bad. For the first 1,5 days it didn't work at... More

Great location, 10 mins walk to Sao Bento train station. Room is very clean with air condition. Hostel is well maintained, kitchen has everything you will need. Can get pretty noisy at night if the staff didn't try to keep the guests' volume down at reception area.
