There is no security in the rooms. Only 2 trunks in my room were ok, the other were broken. The breakfast is too poor. There is no fruit, no yogurt, no cheese, we had to buy everything. The bath was too small to take a shower and there is only one place to put our clothes. If 4 people go to take shower at the same time there is no place to everybody.

Hi , THIS IS A HOSTEL NOT A HOTEL ... WANT YOGURT AND FRUIT .... FOR 17 EUROS A NIGHT ..... plus linen , free wi-fi, free internet , 24h reception , guest's kitchen .... Alface Hostel is like staying at a friends house , NOT staying in one ..... Any way ...... We offer in our breakfast: bread , jam and butter , milk and chocolate , coffee , tea , cereals ( cornflakes and choco-flakes ) a kitchen for you. If you want more than this .... stay in a hotel best regards Bart


I totally enjoyed my stay in Alface Hostel. The stuff is amazing, the atmosphere is very cozy, the room was clean, the breakfast good, right in the heart of Lisbon. You should go there!


Good value for money, nice staff, located in a very centric area, therefore it can by quite noisy at night: nothing a pair of ear plugs can't take care of!


Loved Alface Hostel. Great vibe, location and staff. Felt at home. Had a great time also at Alface Hall. Hopefully, I'll return. Thanks all for making me enjoy Lisboa even more!!! Cheers

The toilets aren´t so clean and there are no doors. The showers are too small. The staff was really friendly and the kitchen is nice. Location is perfect!


A nice place to stay, if only for a night :)


Our room (1 bed for a couple) has absolutelly NOTHING to do with the pictures. It was small, hot and noisy. There was no door for the bathroom inside, just a wooden separating thing. The cleanliness was VERY POOR, we killed a COCKROACH in the room. There wasn't place enought to everyone do the breakfast at the table. But, the location is perfect if you like to hang out.
