The hostel is well located. Good breakfast and good atmosphere. But the bathroom was out of services in our floor but we could use other on the second floor, not so bad. Just if you want to go out and back after midninght is compulsory to call using your cell phone. not easy.

This was a great hostel, it's situated on a very old and beautiful property close to everything in the town center yet secluded enough that it's quiet and peaceful. We loved it. Breakfast was great! And the staff were so sweet and helpful! The only thing we didn't like were the co-ed shower rooms... Also, be sure to use the directions they give you to the hostel, as google maps will send you the long way around...

My sister and i had a wonderful stay at this special hostel. Probably one of the best i've stayed at. Very relaxing atmosphere and the place is really warmly and creatively decorated. In the evening the chilling area is filled with the scent of insence and candles are burning everywhere. The rooms are very nice too. Breakfast was really good, showers were really nice. There was even a guitar i could play on every now and then while reclining on one of the very comfortable beanbags.

Had a wonderful stay at Almaa, Sintra. Friendly, helpful, kind, attentive but very chilled and accommodating staff. Very relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. Around the corner from one of the most fascinating palaces and a nice easy stroll to the center. The vibe was mello and the other guests were great company as a result of the friendly atmosphere and willingness to enjoy the serenity of the hostel.

A very basic hostel. While some will be attracted by its quirky charm others may feel that it is too basic. Having stayed in many hostels over the years I felt this one lacked any investment. Pretty much everything was upcycled which is novel, but it was too basic by most standards. However, I accept for some it may be quite charming.

This hostel is such a dream. As soon as I arrived, I loved it! Such a beautiful place, very easy to chill there and enjoy being in the mountains, and also not far walking to the center if you enjoy a good walk. Such good vibes in this hostel, and I would definitely go back!

I loved staying at the Almaa Sintra Hostel. The location is excellent: the hostel is surrounded by a beautiful garden and is very peaceful, although it's just a 10 minute walk to the city centre. The day trip offered to Cabo da Roca was amazing, as well as the breakfast: fresh fruit and soy milk are my favorites! I would live at the Almaa Sintra if I could ;)

This was one of the best hostels I've stayed at - felt like being in a quaint country barn, but in relative luxury. Very beautifully, peaceful and relaxing.

Beautiful hostel in an old farmhouse - surrounded by a very large peaceful garden. An easy walk to the palaces of Sintra.

Fantastic place that is very well run. Nice to find a place that is relaxed and social but not the dreaded "party hostel". A place to have a holiday from the more intense travelling in the cities. 3 bed dorm really spacious and light.

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in, it has a very relaxed atmosphere. People of all ages, all nationalities. Lots of information about the site and things to do in and around Sintra. The beds are sooo comfy!

A nice place, clean with a cool set up, the place is set in nature, I could see the meditaranian from my window. Only suggestion for improvement is to improve the wifi, its in one room only. Other than that, great place

I loved the location removed from the town, but other people might prefer to be closer. The kitchen was great for when there are not very many people cooking. Deep wide bathtub sink, gas stove, good amount of equipment available. Breakfast of fresh bread with jam and museli was great. Loved that there was soy milk. Beds were very comfortable. Really enjoyed the candles and fire at night time.
