Came here for a stag weekend. Most of the staff were extremely accommodating to us and had any information that we needed. Beds nice and clean for the price and location. My only comments for improvement is to give the building some care as some wall units were movable and unsafe

Good location in barrio alto, easy walk to train station. Good value with breakfast included. Can be noisy at weekend due to nightlife on street. 24 hour reception and were able to store our luggage on last day and return later to collect. Staff helpful

Says, a hostel that me and my southern pals would describe as "top drawer". Absolutely perfect location, right in the heart of Bairro Alto and surrounded by great bars and views overhanging the city.

Says I can't fault the hostel, the staff were exceptional, the location was even better. I really enjoyed the fact that I could walk out of the front door and there would be a bar less than five meters away.Just want to give a mention to Bruno the Porto fan, who shared his experiences of the many crazy football derbies...

Convenient location. Cheap and includes breakfast (nothing fancy, but sufficient). Bed comfortable, bathrooms clean. Main problem was the noise. Unbeknownst to us the hostel is located in the nightclub district and there is quite a noisy nightclub right on that street. Fortunately there is air-conditioning in the room so you can close the double-glazed windows (which also have blinds to... More

The hostel is well localizated, the breakfast is good, what I disliked is that we booked a private room according to photos, because it looked nice, but we clearly weren't given that room, the one we had was just a dorm room, not very clean, very noisy at night and beds aren't too comfy!

I went to Lisbon for the weekend and I got a private room as I needed to rest well for driving back home in Spain. I stayed on the Friday and Saturday, and the street where the hostel is is one of the busiest places at night. It was extremely noisy, it looked like the party was inside the building...... More
