Friendly, helpful staff, good breakfast, free internet, great location and excellent value for money.


I had a nice stay here. It was over Christmas so there weren't many other travelers there but I felt comfortable and at home in the hostel. The guys working at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds, each one had a curtain, light, plug, which is always nice. Lockers in rooms to put your bags. The showers were cool (red, green, blue lights flashing on the nozzle) and warm with good pressure. Perfect location, in the middle of all the attractions.


Nicely located, very clean and nice free breakfast. Only negative was the staff were not that friendly and welcoming


Sort out your bed bug problem. Have someone serving at the bar at the stated times and all the staff need a personality transplant.

Many thanks for your comments which will help us to improve ourselves. Problem with BB is solved, altough was brougth by clients. Staff changes and daily training on the job doing will makes much better. Due to Low Season the Bar is Open but with some time working restrictions. Best regards A.Alves GM


Great location and awesome atmosphere! The bar is nice for a couple of drinks before going out, and there are computers and wifi available. Great place!


Perfect stay is Lisbon! Thank you!

Perfect location and facilities! One small thing for safety to add, a barrier for upper decker bed could prevent unknown falling object during the night.


This hostel is terrible. The place itself is OK, alright location, common area etc but the staff are unhelpful, cleaners extremely rude. This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Also I arrived at 12:30pm to check in at 1 pm but was still waiting at 6pm as the room had not been cleaned. Horrible place!

This hostel is the best.


Had a great experience, rooms were nice and beds within dorm rooms were private and well thought-out. Great location and owners were awesome
