A great little hostel, we had a double private room which was a good standard for a hostel. The garden was perfect for chilling in in the afternoon with giant beanbags, good tunes and €1 beers!! Also had the BBQ on the Friday night which included loads of sangria and too much food to eat, highly recommended. The staff were... More

I stayed one night in Nice Way Sintra with my boyfriend in April 2015. We didn't expect that much, but Nice Way turned out to be a very pleasent surprise. We had a double room with a private bathroom. The room felt like a nice hotel room, it was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The location was really good and... More

Loved this hostel! Would have liked to stay longer. Best was the garden where you can just chill and hang out. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who gave us some great advice. All the people on the staff were also super nice. The decoration is wonderfully quirky and it has a cosy vibe where it... More

First of all sintra is a must visit place and you do need more than a day here. Nice way sintra is truly the place to stay if you like hostels. The atmosphere is cosy and relaxed and I so wished that we had one or two more nights there. The first impression was perfect. A friendly helpful receptionist showing... More

Beautiful hostel with nice big garden in great location near Sintra's old town. Nicely furnished, clean, friendly staff, great ambiance. Open bar outside. The dinners they offer at times are excellent and worth the price. Overall, great impression.

My stay at "nice way" was easily one of the best I have had in Portugal, out of 17. The staff is friendly, up for a chat, and well-informed. The rooms are clean and spacious although the beds in the dorms creak a bit, nothing serious though. Other facilities are of good standard as well. They serve family dinners for... More

Excellent base to explore Sintra and the surrounding area. I stayed in a twin room in the annexe block. Clean and comfortable. The multinational staff were all friendly helpful and informative. This hostel has a very off beat atmosphere very much in keeping with Sintra. If you do stay the little bar in the garden does excellent Mojitos, with mint... More

Nice Way was a great place to relax after a long day of exploring Sintra. I stayed in a 4-bed dorm with comfortable bunks and a beautiful view. There were lockers in the room, though I didn't use them myself. The second floor shared bathroom is a tight space with two standing stalls and two toilets, but there's also a... More

The location is perfect. The staff is even more perfect. I stayed there several times over a 2 month period coming and going from the area and every time I was treated well and felt instantly like family. The staff went out of their way to accommodate any wish I had. The town itself is one of my favorite places... More

This little gem is a perfect backpackers located within 5 minutes (uphill for those of you not keen on hills) from the historic centre of Sintra. It may not appear much from the outside but it is a very cosy place to stay. Breakfast (of cereal and toast) is provided and if it's a nice day there is a backyard... More
