“Nice Way Sintra Palace is the BEST hostel Ever! Can´t get much cooler than an old Palace!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

Sintra Palace is an incredible place and the nicest hostel I have been to. It has modern decore in an renovated Palace, extremely friendly and helpful staff who are from the area and provide excellent advice, top standard of cleanliness, and is in a great location! I would recommend this hostel to anyone from a young person hoping to have fun to an older couple to stay in one of thier private rooms. Sintra Palace is the BEST place to stay in Sintra!! Thank you!

Room Tip: for cheap - shared room, more $ - private!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Nice Way Hostel for one night - we were a little bit hesitant as we knew it catered for a younger clientele as they have a number of dorms, but were pleasantly surprised. The staff are very friendly, and extremely helpful - providing extensive advice and recommendations for Sintra. The room itself was a decent size - basic (no TV or ensuites) but all you need for one nights stay. The location is in the newer section of Sintra, so its a 10 minute walk down to the main tourist area. It wasn't that noisy at night - it was a Sunday - except for a couple of visitors to the hostel at 3.30am - possibly checking in - but despite that a good nights sleep. My only negatives would be that the shared toilet lock was broken, and that it is quite a small hostel so is quite cosy. I imagine it would be a great place to stay if travelling alone.

I was expecting a lot more out of this place, as the reviews were excellent. The staff was accommodating and helpful but our room was teeny tiny. And there was a minor insect problem. I also felt like they cater to younger travelers (20s). Not a great value but decent location.

I absolutely loved staying here, I have never felt so at home in a hostel. The owners were really warm and welcoming they had lots of tips on what to see and where to eat. It was pretty cheap considering the room included free internet, a full kitchen, all the homegrown fruit you can eat and breakfast all morning. Sintra is beautiful and Nice Way Hostel is a great way to experience it.
