To start with, they have a very poor booking system, so be careful - we have booked double room for 6 nights and had to change the room three times during our stay, because of some mysterious problem with overbooking?! Fotunately we paid less for that inconvenience but it was annoying.
The biggest disadvantages of the hostel are its location and the lack of an air condition system. It takes 15 minutes by bus (line number 4, linha turquesa) or 25 minutes walk to get to the centre. To get to the beach it is about 40 minutes by bus. Each fare costs 1,5 euro.
The rest is quite okay - hostel is clean, rooms are small, but comfortable. The hostel offers lunch and dinner for 6 euros, which is very cheap, but we haven't checked it. There is a big shopping mall in the neighbourhood, where you can eat or buy food and cook yourself.
It is not the highest hostel quality, but a decent value for money paid.
