The Hostel and their rooms are great and specious. Everything perfect for our stay. Evething we needed was there. The place was clean and very confortable.. Very short walk to the centre and historic town. Near here, uou can take public transports to everywhere. Nice breakfast! The terrace is a lovely added bonus!!

This place was actually really nice, the facilities were top standard and toilets/showers were accessible enough. The only problem was that it had little to no atmosphere as it was a tall but squished in building. The hike every time to the hostel up a hill wasn't particularly enjoyable either. However the location was very central! The staff were also weirdly reluctant to give us maps or help, just kind of vague directions which were annoying.

Hey, thank you for sharing your impressions. Lisbon like other old European cities is built on many hills (most people say 7 but you end up losing count) we tend to think it is part of the charm of the city but understand the walking can be challenging for some visitors. Next to the 'reception' and also on the mezzanine level, by the coffee machine there are always plenty of free city maps that the guests are welcome to take - we'll look into ways of making them more obvious. Happy travels!


One of the best hostels we have ever stayed at. Very new and even stylish, however the staff were what really made it! They would go above and beyond to cater to our needs, giving out maps, recommendations and even shampoo! We would definitely stay here again!
