“Feels more like a nice hotel - but at hostel prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

It cost me 27 euro for three nights here, including wifi, a full continental breakfast so big I ended up making a sandwich for lunch too, and a very chic and luxurious lounge area full of things to do and free teas, coffees, and fruit. The place was impeccably clean, and perfectly located. Seriously, just stay here any time you are in Lisbon.

I stayed here twice in February, its a great hostel perfectly located in Bairro Alto, easy to get to from metro station Baixa-Chiado. Its very clean and chic and looks more like an arty hotel than a normal hostel. The showers are great which is unusual for a hostel and the bathrooms have plugs for hairdryers etc which is helpful. Each bed has its own little lamp so you can come in later/get up early without wakening everyone up! I will definitely return.

A great spot in Lisbon, easy to catch the bus from the airport. The bus stops at the bottom of the hill, so a bit of a walk up, There's also the trams 'elevators' but they cost 3.60€
We stayed in a dorm room, beautiful view. Big spacious, light rooms.
Everything was clean and well thought out. So much to do also, although it was low season there weren't so many people around. Friendly staff, breakfast included, simple, but really all you need. Even if you wanted more it didn't cost much.
Great place, Lisbon is amazing!!

the hostel locates in a great high spot in the city, which makes it possible to see the st george castle from the rooms. and also it is close to one of the famous elevators and Rossio station, which is convenient very much. the room is big, with a sitting room where people can talk, play games and cook in the second floor. and computers in the corridor, two ladies rooms really lovely. and also good service. like there is a fado night every tuesday, the staff will take us to one of the truly authentic place to enjoy the fado, and without charge at all! the help they offered is really detailed and lovely! i strongly recommend this place to everyone who is going to lisboa!

I stayed by myself in this hostel for 3 nights. Stuff are super friendly, the hostel cannot be in a more perfect location. Breakfast is a great start to wake u up. Organised sightseeing tours. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly. Lockers in room.
Maybe the only negative thing is that the walls are quite thin, so make sure you have an earplug if you would like to sleep properly. In the bathroom the doors made me feel unfcomfortable, becuase you can easily see in as they are very short. Anyway great job stuff! Highly reccomended place to stay!

Great good value place to stay. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff at the reception. Excellent location for stay, meeting people and to have a few drinks. Our room was a great mix of nationalities, genders and ages. We all got along brilliantly. I will be back!!

Clean, comfy rooms, good location, great lounge room, free breakfast, WiFi and tea. The staff go out of their way to help and advice - what more could any traveller need.
Stayed with a group of friends and the experience could not have been any sweeter! 11/10!
