Very cool place - right near the beach and with a great terrace to sunbathe on and watch the surfers :) staff was amazing- very helpful with everything and gave us extra information about Sintra and Lisbon!! Also they put us in a nice 4-bed dorm instead of 12, and it was super clean and comfy. Great place definitely recommend!


STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!!! The hotstel is one hour walk to Cascais, but from outside the hostel to Cascais ALL ALONG is the great view of beach~ It is really enjoy walking along the way and enjoy the sunshine, the ocean and the warmth. The personal there are quite nice. Actually it is not a REAL hostel, instead it belongs to a charity society and this hostel is in a charity school. You will eat in the canteen with the children but live apart from them. Personals are sooooo nice and helpful!!

Ricardo and his 2 associates made this a wonderful experience. They went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and comfortable and well-oriented to the town. Rooms were cozy, clean and bright. Free towels! The prepared breakfasts were wonderful and the chef / kitchen staff are very kind to people with special diets / requests. It's a hotel experience more than a hostel experience - some rooms have TVs! But there's no access to the kitchen to cook your own food nor personal lockers.


One of the best Hostels I've ever been. Nearly an hotel. Great value for money. Great institution. Has all the necessary facilities for a great stay, near the beach. Great staff.


I understand that the Foundation is primarily a place for orphaned children, and not a hostel. The businesses should be run separately and not through the same reception desk.


This was a wonderful experience ! The personnel is helpful and friendly. The breakfast was simple but good ! For the rooms, were tidy, clean and bright, overlooking the cozy terrace and the ocean. I recommend without hesitation the Foundation and I strongly encourage projects.
