My friend and I stayed at the hostel for nine nights, (originally four but we loved it so much we added five nights to our stay). We found the hostel staff to be friendly, helpful, and very good at recommending local things. We became quick friends with a few members of the staff, barbara in particular who took us out and showed us where things were a couple of times, and helped us with anything we could possibly have wanted. We appreciated the diversity, fun, conversation, and atmosphere here.
This hostel, like Lisbon itself, seemed to have two sides. The bad parts were my loud fellow guests, doors that were either difficult to close or difficult to open, its proximity to few of the major sites, and the fact that I was only barely able to shower in privacy. The staff were a positive, they let me come early, answered a barrage of questions ranging from touristic to linguistic, and were quite accommodating. the breakfast was nice, and sitting drinking hot chocolate over Lisbon was fun
Really good place, great location, realy great staff !! Would recommend for sure !
The staff is really nice and helpful, they gave me the best advices for places to see
The hostel went out of its way to make you feel comfortable / have eveything you needed. For the price of this hostel what you get it unreal. The location is just a 15 minute walk or less to the center. Felt at home here and had no complaints at all.
Friendly staffs nice and cozy atomosphere. Staffs speak quite good English which was easy to understand. Value for money free wifi and brekkie are cool as
Great hostel, nice and spacious with great chillout area downstairs with TV, sofas etc. as well as a stunning view from the balcony/veranda upstairs where you can sit and have a beer or whatever. Also amazing friendly helpful staff who know the area well. Its neat to the metro and you can walk into the centre no problem. Safe area, clean rooms, nice kitchens if you want to make your own food, clean (if a bit tight for space) bathrooms, all great!
love the hostel. Great back garden lots of fun with the other people. Spent most my time on the balconies though.. Great view of central Lisbon and great location. Staff were the best. Chana and Alexandre on the staff were cool to hang out with and told me good places to go. Thanks guys. Love Lisbon love the beach. Hostel was clean. Good value. Will be back someday.

Hostel was very calm too calm for me not much going on, the staff was pretty cool. Kitchen on every floor. Breakfast is just toast and cereal. The roof top was nice to hangout on. Location is basic but I found it hard to find everytime I wanted to come back. It was okay, wasn't a great experience.
The staff were very friendly and helpful during my stay. For instance, my reservation wasn't showing up in the system, but they still worked with me to make sure I would have a room. I would say that my only issue with the place would have to be the bathrooms; it took a lot of effort to slide open the door to the men's bathroom on the second floor and the bathrooms in general were very narrow and offered little privacy. I would have liked to seen a sign that said to not close the bathroom door.
Had a great stay with extremely friendly staffs. I didn't expect a lot since the price was so cheap, but it was way much better than I expected. There is also a nice restaurant with cheap price right next to the hostel, where I've gone 4times.
I had a great time. The staff was lovely and recommended lots of things for me to do. They also gave easy directions to get to the hostel from the airport. The other guests were pretty cool as well and it was nice to just "chill out." Bathrooms were a little tiny and the walls were pretty thin, but if you stay in a hostel you aren't really looking for an upscale place to spend the night anyways.

Pros: Very friendly staff, pretty rooms with big enough lockers, access to room with a keycard, well equiped kitchen Cons: Lots of mould everywhere, small bathroom
the hostel was a little "too" chill. I booked a female dorm (and paid more for it)& they tried to stick 2 boys in the room with me. when I was offended, the staff acted like it was my fault but eventually moved the boys to a private room. the rooms were nice& as described. the wifi is poor in the rooms& really only works downstairs. there is major construction going on and it's early in the AM. I booked a surfing lesson with the hostel and was stood up by the guide. only 1 bathroom for girls.
The staff is extremely helpful and honestly one of the only reasons I liked the place. Also, the breakfast is good. The location is decent. Not the most central but in the city centre anyway. Easily accessible if you are using the metro. Two things which I strongly advise: 1. I got a room on the first floor which is adjacent to the kitchen. Either they need to have a time to close the kitchen or ask them to give you another room. 2. Bathrooms NEED to be redesigned and renovated too!
Very friendly staff, free breakfast, clean and nice rooms, wifi... It was a great stay and all at a very reasonable price. At a walking distance from Lisboa center, but plan 30 minutes to get there from the hostel. Another option is taking the metro, which is at maybe 10 minutes from the hostel. Don't hesitate to book a room there if you have the chance.

nice hostel in a good location. but parties every evening/night. mostly teenagers. toilets and shower were to small and always wet on the floor.
The girl's bathroom on first floor is just too small (plus people don't know how to not get eveything wet). Breakfast was ok. Noisy bunk beds...
I dont know about the other people, but Ive had a bad stayed in this hostel. An advice: dont take any room in the 1st floor... it is SO NOISY!! Before midnight is impossible to sleep, a lot of people talking on the aisle, the rooms are near by living room, and people plays foosball at night and again, is impossible to sleep... ANYWAY, just if you want rest early... The other problem is about the bedroom and the bathroom, both are SO TIGHT!!! It is really hard to change clothes, dont have space..
the hostel is ok. the location is not really central and you can´t cook in the kitchens as there are no stoves, but the house is really nice and the view from the top balcony is as well. its cheap and chilled-out :)
