The hostel was very well located and the staff was helpful. Unfortunately, the facilities were not very clean. The kitchen was kept in great condition (very clean) but the rooms and the toilets were filthy.

Good location. This hostel is alright by English hostel standards.

They do say in the listing that it gets loud at weekends with a bar/club downstairs - I thought I'd be alright with earplugs but on the second floor the bass still made the bed frame vibrate so just bear that in mind! Could also do with lockers in the rooms but overall a decent hostel.

The location is fine in terms of geographical location - conveniently close to the bus station - but located on top of a bar which made it quite impossible to sleep and the window could not close.

Everything was great, beds were very comfy, the only issue was the internet as it was always very poor, other than that a very good hostel!!

They should have a locker for every bed and a socket for charging electronic devices

Very good overall, but it was a bit difficult to find, due to where the entrance was and the place below being shut later on.

The facilities, kitchen, bar, ping-pong are very good! Atmosphere is nice if you're here to party. But it is strange to have to go all the way out and then in again to enter the bar/club on Saturday night as it doesn't change anything as it's free for us, except having to argue with the young bouncer, who, by the way, seems to be brainless. The rooms are pretty fine but the showers and especially the toilets are very dirty! Otherwise, great place that I would recommend after a few improvements!

One of the best hostels I have stayed in, secure friendly. And axes to the boat to cross the river Tejo could not be any easier just a ferry port across the road. The hostel backs on to one of the main station's and the airport bus is just outside the hostel. When you want to stay at a hostel its a sign of excellence. Many thanks to the friendly staff and customers there for a great 9 days there

There should be a rule, no sprays in the rooms. A small shelf in the showers would be useful.

Excellent.Lovely staff and nice big bright airy 12 bed dorms. Nice big clean kitchen. The showers leave a lot to be desired. I know your making the best with what you have but those tiny toilet and shower combo cubicles are just uncomfortable and impossible to keep clean, you can neither go to the toilet or shower comfortably. Thank you

As a hostel is one of the best I have been, pretty good location. Common areas are always crowed of people so if want to relax you must go out
