What can I say that hasn't been said by the reviewers before me? This is definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at and at 20 euro a night including breakfast, probably the best value for money I've ever found. The place is impeccably clean and has a great vibe. We had fun getting to know our fellow travelers.
The staff are lovely and went out of their way to help us. Since we were a couple traveling together they even managed to give us the Blue Room with a View to ourselves for two of the three nights we spent with them. (The loft space is the best....the view of the church across the street alone was worth the 20 euros)
The location can't be beat either - close to the train station, the market, Alfama, the Cathedral, and the bus to the airport and walking distance to everything we wanted to see.
My only caveat is this: be sure to take the hostel's address with you because there are no signs on the door or buzzer. We had a map and we knew the street name but not the number and ended up wandering around for an hour. Also - be sure to ask the hostel which buzzer you should press (I think it was 3D) or you might buzz one of their neighbours by mistake.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Part of a 250 year old building we're all about fit to size. Standard isn't our thing, so you can sleep in huge tailor-made wooden bunkbeds or raised sleeping platforms. In the heart of the old city, we're few minutes walking distance from everywhere. Be our guest ... more less
