This is an awesome Hostel. The staff is the best. They help you and tell you what you can do in the city, and how. They are always very welcoming and approachable and go above their way for you. The Hostel is clean and safe.

I don't know where to start, I LOVE THIS HOSTEL! It's truly amazing.

First off, the location is perfect. Right in the city center on Rua Augusta, a very famous pedestrian street filled with shops, restaurants, and all the other good stuff. Most main attractions are walking distance, and the trams are all around.

It's also really nicely decorated, there's a lounge with a couch and bean bag chairs, a bookshelf with lots of travel guides, and music. They have a room with 3 computers, and free wifi throughout the hostel. There's a tv room and they have a selection of dvds. Then there's this sort of eating area room with tables and couches where you can hang out. In the morning, each table there is set up with jams and utensils for breakfast. There are two women cooking eggs for you in the kitchen (awesome), toast, jam, cereals, and they have free tea & coffee all day. There's also a fridge where you can store your food.

Next, the staff are so amazing, nice, and helpful! If you don't know what you're doing for the day, just ask them for suggestions and they will gladly sit with you and draw out an entire map. Loved them! Every night the hostel has activities which are usually around 6 euro and include drinks. They have cookouts in the lounge, take you out on pub crawls, to hear fado music, etc. It's a great way to meet other people in the hostel, and good if you're alone. They really make it easy for you to have a fun night. They also do tours during the day, one to Sintra (which is worth seeing) and some other towns outside of Lisbon.

This place is also super clean! My room for four was spotless, spacious, and had a balcony overlooking Rua Augusta where you could hear all the music and liveliness coming from the street (which is a good thing in my opinion). There is a pretty big locker under the bed which has a safe and enough room for probably a medium size suitcase, maybe bigger. The bathrooms are also super clean, there's one for girls and one for guys for each floor. About two showers per bathroom which was never a problem.

Overall this is the best hostel I've ever seen and I really loved my stay there. I obviously reccomend it to anyone staying in Lisbon (which is an amazing city btw). Do yourself a favor, and book your room here asap :)

This place is nice. I never ended up actually staying there because I went out of town and got stuck out of town before I could actually check in. However, they help my luggage for me which was entirely safe. I did still have to pay for my night’s stay because it was too late to cancel my reservation, but the safe luggage storage and elaborate directions to the town of Sintra and map printed and suggestions offered by staff was very helpful. One nice thing here is that you don’t have to do your own dishes, they have free WIFI, free ipads for use if needed, you can rent Segways for 1 hour for only $5, and they are located right on the main strip downtown where right out the door you’ll find cafes and street performers. Only downfall is that while cozy, it is kinda small. During the afternoon when everyone has woken up and sitting in the main lounging areas, it felt a bit claustrophobic to me. Nice place overall though. Very helpful English speaking staff.

it is centrally located. Sea and other tourist attractions are just walking distance away.Very friendly staff. The living room is the most buzzing place. Free wifi in ur rooms, they have iPads, mac for your use for free. They organised daily tours to Sinatra and nightly tours around Lisbon. Mr Gee knows the area in and out. He gives u excellent suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. The pub crawl and peri peri chicken nights were awesome. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean and seldom busy.

This was the best hostel ive ever been to. Spent two nights there and they were the best nights in lisbon. The stuff organises great Events every night. I saw fado in the best place i could have eer asked for. In a very autentic local place where they usually dont even want tourists. The liing room in the hostel is very nice, so are the rooms. Nothing bad to say...go there if you happen to be in lisbon
