i just booked the hostel for one night because i had an early train to catch. it is very welllocated for the train station and the bus terminal. the airport bus also stops just outside. i arrived late at night and i was very hungry.the check in was very nice and i coul join the hostel dinner straight away which made my day.when i got it right the hostel owners mum had cooked a portuguese speciality - a cornflower dish with shellfish and shrimps - very nice! There was also wine and watermelon to go with it and all of it for just 6 €. There was a nice crowd of people around the table and we had a good talk. The bathrooms were very spacious and clean. The beds where very well made and clea as well. Overall very good!
The only advice for people who have problems with sleeping is to bring ear plugs. the dorm has three windows to the street and it was a little noisy.
