Maybe the best hostel I've stayed in, a real home from home. Spotless, comfortable rooms and a fantastic welcome from the very helpful Cristiana. The location is less central than some other hostels, but I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! The woman running the place, Cristiana is so warm and welcoming and the property itself is fantastic - it's spacious, clean has good beds and excellent bathrooms. The kitchen is also very good, especially if you want to save a bit of money and make some meals at the guest house. It's best to get a taxi from the Cascais bus stop, only 3.50 euros and avoids walking uphill with your bags.

The host, Cristiana is sooo warm and lovely, she made us feel at home, very hospitable and friendly. Had a few nice chats with her, she's just so personable. You dont even need to do research as she has a map of Cascais and will show you all the places to go to.
The house itself is wonderfully decorated and can really see Cristiana's creative personality through her tasteful choices of furniture and displays. The bed is also nicely put together with a very comfortable bed and duck down pillows and duvet. Our room was a double room with a cute balcony. The place is about 10mins walk to the town centre and bus/train station or 3mins drive, very accessible.

I will definitely stay here again, no doubt about it. We were so sad when we left, I just wished we stayed here longer!

Decided to spend 3 nights in Cascais after the Lisbon festival of San Antonio In Lisbon and so glad that I did. Agarre o momento which means seize the day or carpe diem for those who are fond of Latin is run by Christiana who is a hostess with the mostest. Cascais is an oasis of calm and culture and Christiana provides the personal touch. In addition, she recommended a wonderful local fish restaurant (not a tourist in sight apart from myself!) called Pateo do Pedisco just up the road from the guest house. Wish I had planned to stay for longer!

Very nice and lovely guesthouse with a lot of charme and a wonderful hostess. The bathroom and also the other parts of the hostel are cleaned every day. The hostess is very friendly and works hard each and every guest.
I've spent in a very loving atmosphere wonderful days and hope to eventually once again.

Only at 10 min walking distance of what there is to see and to do in Cascais, this nice guest house is run by Cristiana mother of Vasco 7. A caring owner with whom I had lots of nice conversations and cafes. Confortable place, clean, quiet, you have access to a very well equiped kitchen, a cozy living room with stereo system, television with cable, free Wi-FI and a good provision of drinks with or without alchool. If you go there to see Cascais and the surroundings such as Sintra, Guincho or Cabo da Roca, this guest house is a MUST. I stayed there for 2 weeks. I really enjoyed it.

Cute little guest house in Cascais - about 3 mins from the town's centre. Extremely clean and great location. Most impressive was the service! Owner and manager was amazing - so friendly and kind. Made us feel so comfortable and like we were right at home. We were almost sad to leave! Will definitely come back one day, and will also recommend to others. Definitely worth a stay!!
