Great place to stay, you get more then what you pay for, outstanding staff, not that much of an atmosphere, but it was just the time of the year. Would recommend.


Womderful helping staff! Thanks for everything :)


I loved this hostel for its location, and staff! Very central within walking distance to many local haunts and the central square. Very helpful staff and pouts too. Special thanks to Yolanda for voluntarily marking spots of interest when I indicated I was going to talk a walk around. Highly recommended!


Very nice hostel, staff is very friendly, definitely a big reccomendation.


The directions Form trinade Station could be explained a little better. We had a room facing the square in front and we did not have one quiete night it was very noisy until early in the morning. I guess for those who like to party a lot this is perfect. Other than that the hostel is good.


Excellent location and friendly staff.


Located really close to the center just few steps away and nice staff :)


I know it may be for hygiene, but it would be nice to have soap and shampoo on the showers instead of having to carry your own all the way to the hostel.


Very nice hostel. A bit hard to find, but very well located in the city, we did everything by walking! The atmosphere is great, very friendly, they have a nice common area with couch, guitars and games. They have activities organised such as walkng tours (that I totally recommend) and pubcrawls (I recommend also if you're up for a little partying). And even with the pubcrawl and the location it is very quiet at night. Perfect place to stay. The staff is also very friendly and helpful!


Really good hostel, with a nice atmosphere!! Owners help you to find best places in the city, free tours, night life... etc It was an amazing experience :)


The wifi was quite slow and the signal was non-existant in the upper-floors (2nd). However, the hostel has incredible location and facilities, even offering a free breakfast and free guided tours starting there. Right in the party area, perfect at night. We will probably come back, thanks!


Impossible to sleep, good for partying


Really nice atmosphere and friendly staff! The room was spacy enough and had a good view from the balcony. When our booking had already ended, we were allowed to keep our suitcases secured in the hostel while spending the day out in the city. A very friendly and relaxing hostel to stay! And definitely value for money. Thank you! :)

This is one of the best hostel that I have been lived in. Cheap price with a high quality breakfast, clean places and convenient location. However, the place may be too noisy even in the midnight because there are many bars just siutated in the opposite side.


The staff that works the day time struggled with English, so it was hard to get recommendations for what we were looking for specifically. The kitchen area was great and clean, but the showers were not. There was like black mold in the grout and on the ceilings. The drains are clogged. There are lamps on all of the beds for show, but ours didn't work. Didn't keep soap dispensers full for two days and when it had soap, it was watered down. Towels they provided were crunchy. Wifi extremely spotty


It's a too simple Hostel to a "Hostelworld Recommendation". But good location and it is clean enough to a good stay.


It is really worth going. Very cheap and good facilities! Location is great.


The location is great and the stuff is really helpful


Great hostel. The staff is very friendly. Location is excellent and close to bus stop for airport. Only con for me was that the hostel is smack in the middle of downtown and I was on ground floor, which means it was not quiet in the dorm, especially because Portuguese people love to party until 5am. Falling asleep if you are trying to catch an early bus/train could be challenging.
