The hostel looks nice and is clean, although there was some dust behind the beds. It is nicely decorated, however the money could have been spend better. Because: the beds were horriblle. I slept on 2 different ones and both were bad. They have the cheapest IKEA matresses, which have metal springs. However so few that you can feel each of them. If you don't sleep on your back, it simplu hurts. Therefore, no points for facilities.

Dear guest, thank you for spending time leaving your comments. Luckily, we dont have IKEA mattresses, and all our mattresses are not older than 2 years, and definitely not cheap. You could have told us personally, but we will double check all of them, sometimes this things happen immediately without us noticing it. Best regards, Poets Hostel


Location was right smack in the middle of the city. Beds were comfortable and clean. Living room was extremely cosy and a great place to chill/hang out. Hot water was amazing and showers were v strong.

Hello! Thank you for your kind review! All the team appreciates it very much! We hope to see you again, maybe in the summer who know?! :D Best wishes from all the Poetic staff


Without a doubt one of the best hostels I've stayed at. Great staff, clean rooms, huge common area with almost enough bean bags for every guest. And the location is perfect. Incredibly central and spot on for sight seeing in this amazing city.

Thanks for the review! You´re right! our location is one of the best and we are very proud of it! :D All the staff appreciated your words. Hope to see you again Best wishes from all the team


Great location, close to metro station and Bairro Alto. Very helpful staff, great atmosphere and chilled common area. Modern and clean facilities. Only thing is that the showers / toilets were not attached to the rooms. This needs to be made obvious in the hostel information- but the showers were good-especially for a hostel!

Thanks for your review! Hope you enjoyed staying with us, we are already following your advice ;) Best wishes from all the team! hope you come back (summer maybe?)


Best hostel I've ever stayed at! The staff are amazing! They make home cooked meals and take you out to the best bars and clubs at night, not to mention they're super fun! The lounge area is amazing and so nicely decorated and the rooms are new and clean. Just make sure you don't miss the sign when looking for it, it's 5 storeys up!


Amazing experience. Easily the most beautiful hostel I have ever stayed in!

This is a great place to stay if you are looking to meet new people during your travels! The staff, in addition to being fluent in several languages, organize group outings every night. The facilities are very clean, but it can get a bit noisy, sometimes late into the night.
