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 :)

Very nice staff, but the facilities of the hostel were not very good. The water in the showers started very hot, and suddenly changed to cold. I couldn't take a hot shower entirely.

This hostel is ideally located in Lisbon. But the price for this prime location is high if you decide to take the private room. You will have to accept sleeping in a 9 sqm room, bathroom and toilets included. Intimacy in next to non-existent using toilets. An awful scent of curry appears around 6.00 P.M. (nothing we can do, it's because of the restaurant downstairs, deal with it said the staff). Finally, you'll have to share the room with 8cm long cockroach, and no discount granted.

Great location and really helpful staff with lots of tips. Can be a bit noisy and warm in the rooms but wasn't a big deal.

It could be useful to know, before booking, that the rooms are not provided with closets or places where to put the clothes.

Be nicer to make it clearer when you arrive where the entrance to the hostel is and what floor. Really good location for bars and night life in lisbon... it is on the street where you have 20 bars to choose from. Not good if you are looking for a quiet get away! Very loud, staff are friendly and great place to meet people

Great place, great location, great atmosphere!!! Mostly single travellers, but also nice if you're a couple: there is one double room with a bathroom where we stayed. The staff was very welcoming and so nice! My boyfriend woke up at 6 the last day ta get his plane, and they served breakfas to him- even if its only supposend to start at 8! Then I had to go to the bus station and the lady from the hotel took me there by car as it was on her way! I strongly recommend the place, cosy and central!!!

Unfortunately it was unbearably hot during our stay, over 40degrees but this takes nothing away from Alface. The location is great, busy little strip with some cool bars. Staff were fantastic and the price is something to smile about. Highly recommended!

The hostel is located in the heart of Lisbon!! In the neighborhood with a lot of bars and clubs. So, if you look for a quite hostel, probably you will have problem there!!! But if you want some place near to go out and return walking in the middle of the night, that is the place!!! The staff is very nice and always ready to help you!

The hostel is very well located, in Bairro Alto (a kind of party centre). Friendly staff, clean rooms. Amazing hostel, I wil recommend it to all my friends.

Excellent hostel. Small but well located, helpful staff, nice atmosphere. 3 min walk from the Rossio train station and located within the "nightlife" part of the city. Some of the best restaurants are within 5 min walk. Definitely recommend and would come back with pleasure.

Already gave it a glowing review on Tripadviser. Really enjoyed our stay - staff were friendly and very helpful with advice, facilities, while basic, were clean and more than adequate. Breakfast a bit disappointing and coffee undrinkable but for the price, I am surprised it was provided at all. Lovely atmosphere, comfortable beds and, very thoughtfully, provided with earplugs. Great place.
