“Basic, sterile, good value.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a hostel devoid of personality and character but it's clean and simple and inexpensive. If you're looking for a budget place to stay then Unreal hostel is a good choice. Staff are friendly enough and although not easily accessible from the city centre on foot it's close to Metro stops. There's not much to do within walking distance of the hostel so use it as a base to go exploring.Would recommend...

This hostel was great! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room (dorm) was thoroughly cleaned everyday, the showers were hot, the kitchen area was nice, and it is located on an airport bus line as well as a metro line. You also get free breakfast, free internet, and free towels! For the price, this place couldn't be beat!

Booked this place just two nights before we arrived for 36 euros, two people, two nights and for that price we really weren't expecting much. It was all very new and very modern. Our room was on the fifth floor (the top one for rooms) which was fine as they had two elevators. Our room was for 8 people but it was really nice and spacious. Lockers included in the rooms and a massive balcony which was really nice to sit on and have a few drinks. Only problem with the room was that there was only one power socket in it. We had a bathroom on our floor which was really nice and clean, had about 4-6 showers and three cubicles. Only problem in there was that two of the cubicles didn't have locks on them and the soap ran out at the two sinks. On the sixth floor is the kitchen and eating area. Really clean, spacious and with full cooking utensils. Had a big TV in there and it was really good to meet people and predrink in the evenings before going out. On the first floor there was a small living room area/ study area with a balcony and a big TV again but we didn't realise that it was there until we were checking out. Some of the staff weren't all that friendly but we met a guy called Ricardo on our last night there who was only on his second shift and he was such a nice guy to us. It is in a pretty good location with a supermarket just round the corner and the metro station about a five minute walk away. We walked into town mostly because it really wasn't too far - probably about a 15-20 minute walk. Great place for a cheap stay!

We were a group of 34 and needed a last minute hostel in the centre of Lisbon. We found this hostel through hostelworld and the service was excellent, especially at such short notice. The rooms were clean, the facilities excellent, and everything was within walking distance of the main attractions. Would definitely recommend this hostel

Room Tip: Rooms are a bit hot - check whether you can get Air Conditioning

Very nice hostel, we took a four beds room with a private bathroom which was perfect for us.
We were out and about whole days so basically just stayed in the Hostel to sleep.
The people working there are very nice, the hostel is clean and breakfast is good.

we went by car so we were a bit scared of having troubles with leaving the car but at the end there was no problem we had a place in front of the hostel- to move around we chose metro.

I stayed here for two months (april and may 2012) in a private room. It was a nice experience. My room was cleaned everyday, I used to left my belongings over my table and nothing disappeared. Room with heater, hot water. Reception function 24h. Safe place. The hostel is near metro and bus stops with direct buses to the airport.

I stayed in this hostel when i was on a trip with school.
We slept in a room for 10 people. Everyone had their own locker and we had our own bathroom. There was enough space, since we didn't do anything but sleep there. The mattresses were poor, very thin and not comfortable at all. Too bad there were only 2 power plugs for ten people.
The hostel was very clean and quiet enough at night.
The breakfast was basic but good. There was toast (fresh, warm toast!), cheese, jam, tea, water, coffee and breakfast cereals. There was always enough place to sit. During the day, you could use the kitchen. There was cutlery, pots and pans, mugs,... So you could make a sleep tea at night :)
The chill out room was nice! Comfortable couches, beanbags,... Too bad we had to leave and be quiet after 10 PM.
There are 2 metro station very close to the hostel. (hint : take a taxi, they are really cheap and EVERYWHERE)
Over all i enjoyed my stay at this hostel and I would come back here.

Room Tip: Not every room has a balcony. Maybe you can ask to sleep on a floor where there are no groups of s...
