Amazing location and fab staff. They gave us great tips about where to park the car for free and where to eat great and cheap food. The room and toilets where spotless and the outdoor seating a great place to chill after a beach day. The only let down was the breakfast - a slice of bread with jam and butter and a not very good coffee. Other than that I would definitely stay here again.
The woman working at reception was really nice and helpful when we had to rush to the train. Room was nice and clean, and there was a big and nice patio out front overlooking the water. We only stayed for one night, and I REALLY wish we could have stayed longer. Seems like an awesome town and a great hoste.

Excellent central location, with the best equipped kitchen you'll ever come across in a hostel.
The place is nice and in the very center of Cascais on the main street with some bars and restaurants. You can walk to the beach and also to Estoril if you are looking for the casino or the only two nightclubs in town. We had our own room as we were 4 but it looked like we were alone there, nobody to meet and chat with. Staff is helpful and speaks good english
Found the room was not clean enough, mildew on the curtain and rug was not clean. Staff were disrespectful with regards noise, our room was outside the reception area and the receptionist spoke extremely loudly from 8.30 on wards. We left without staying our final night. When we expressed our concerns the staff were not apologetic but rather accused us. I sent an email to the hostel to explain our experience and received a rather rude response. Would not recommend at all based on this.

really great hostel in the best location of cascaish, right near all the good restaurants in the square yet not noisy. 2 showers/toilets were spotless but not enough for a fairly busy hostel. Nice balcony, friendly staff although no-one to man reception in the night. I would stay here again (just maybe not in a mixed dorm.....slightly strange couple but this is no bad reflection on the hostel)
Grade-A hostel at the top notch center of town. The hostels small size made it very snug and homey, and the terrace views were great. Clean rooms, best toilets out of ALL hostels I've ever been in and the breakfast was nice. Staff was friendly and informative.
The hostel was in a great location! Minutes from the beach and right in the town center- The staff were helpful and kind. I loved the deck that overlooked Cascais. I will definitely be booking here again.
This hostel was a lovely, clean and well located place to stay for a short period of time. It was very small-only four rooms and as it was low season, atmosphere was not the best. However this would probably improve in the high season with more guests. Facilities were good, and the balcony overlooking the water was a lovely addition. A great place for a quiet stay is cascais
