The best hostel experience I've had by a country mile - it definitely deserves its good reputation. You know you're luck is in as soon as you arrive, with amazing views across the city and a few minutes walk away from all the fun craziness of Barrio Alto. The hostel itself is as good as the photos suggest, great modern design in an old atmospheric building. But the people really made it. You get the feeling that everyone who works there wants to be there as much as you do. There's a laid back friendly atmosphere that makes you feel at home before you've even got to your room. But don't mistake that for unprofessionalism, these guys know what they're doing and you can trust that they'll do whatever they can to make sure you have a great stay. It made my trip to Lisbon, thanks x
