I was a solo traveler and I found it perfect: beautiful, clean, staff awesome and very helpful, they also organize lot of nights and tours. Good location, perfectly central, in the heart of the city.
I met lot of people from all over the world in the beautiful living room and the atmosphere was so nice, I really spent hours there. Access to internet is free, there were computers and iPad at your disposal. The rooms are also very nice, with safes under the bed. I appriciated a lot also their breakfast, preatty good and cheap. And... there was always very good music in the living room!

Super friendly and homely, and PRIME location. Easy to get to from the airport (catch the airport bus, and it's like a 2 minute walk from the stop), staff are awesome, really central and close to lots of pretty stuff in the city. Hostel is nice, clean, friendly, and breakfast is awesome (eggs served by super friendly Portuguese ladies). Only room for improvement would be the rooms which got quite hot at night but that's no biggie. I was with a friend but it would also be really nice for solo travelers. Seriously don't stay anywhere else.

I've been lucky enough to travel the world and stayed in some great places and some not so great but i have to say this place is excellent, from the location to the staff and to the hostel itself. I stayed for two nights before me and a group of friends went to Optimus Alive festival. As i said earlier the location is spot on and the staff are very helpful. I'd recommend the bar crawl the hostel does because its great to meet other people and check out the Lisbon nightlife. Lisbon as a city is fantastic.

Room Tip: I had no problem with the room i was in and that was on the 3rd floor over the street outside.

Centrally located, Knowledgeable staff, friendly atmosphere.. can't get much better than that. This hostel is located in the heart of Lisbon, with lots of charm and potential. Breakfast is included and the rates are very reasonable. Definitely worth staying in.

Lovely helpful staff who went out of their way to help- directions to the best places to eat and helping plan day trips to Sintra. Breakfast was a highlight with fresh made scrambled eggs and toast!

This hostel is superb, we were walking distance to train, bars, restaurants and everything we needed. We got collected from the airport (thanks Charles) and even got a mini tour thrown in to the drive back home. Staff were friendly and full of recommendations of what to do and where to go. We did the segway tour that was available, 2 hours for 20 euros and it was the best money we have ever spent! SO much fun and such a better way to tour the city, hopping off to look at the cathedrals and stuff.
Breakfast was also included in the very cheap price, the 3 of us had rented a 4 person room just for privacy. Only scrambled egg or jam etc with toast but pretty good considering the price and the fact it was a hostel! We were told not to make too much noise after a certain time and came back slightly worse for wear but didn't experience anyone telling us to quieten down!
The one downside was the first morning we were woken up by some loud noise going on outside as the windows let in a bit of noise but generally very comfortable and clean. They also had ipads available for if the two computers were in use and travel books, chess sets etc for people wanting just to chill there (though Lisbon has so much to offer we just used it as a base!).
From the looks of some of the negative reviews, people were expecting a 5 star hotel. This is a hostel so don't expect the world but it was a very good one!
