Love the place, very original and cool design. Amazing big beds, I dont give top grade in facilities just because they werent enough showers and most of them where not private at all. Free breakfast is good but you can get tired of pancakes, however for the price is very good. Is located very close to a metro station and not far from historic center, like 15 min walk
The lavatories and showers arent enough or run down. But as we talked, the house is very old...
Overall this was a good hostel! What made it even better were the staff. The owner was amazing! He remembered everyones name that stayed there, went out of his way to help and even cooked us pancakes in the morning! The rooms were big with double size mattresses. The showers were okay but great cooking facilities.
Good atmosphere and facilities, but lack of maintainance. Great staff and location
Great atmosphere, especially the staff is trying their best to make everybody feel at home. So this place is perfect if you are traveling on your own. Plus, there are free pancakes every morning, what more could you want?
I loved this place. You can party here but also chill in the living room and watch movie after movie. The staff is amazing and the pancakes delicous. Def recommend this place. It feels like a home.
Loved the pancake breakfast and the huge beds. Not many showers available for the amount of people at the hostel but other facilities were great. Good atmosphere and very spacious common room area. Had a great stay!
Front door security & keycard access to the room but there wasn't anywhere to look away valuables. Location was excellent - right in the centre & just a short walk to Rossio & the main attractions. The staff were friendly & helpful, free beer on arrival is awesome! Beds are amazing! Double bed bunks! Pancake breakfast was new & original too, though I think I would get sick of pancakes after a couple of mornings. Bathrooms always seemed dirty, & there isn't much privacy when you are showering.
Amazing overall. But seriously lacking in bathroom facilities
An excellent hostel with great staff. Was so happy with it I stayed there a week. Internet worked extremely well - consistently got around 30MPBS. Toilets and showers aren't anything special, but this is something I was told they are soon to address. Pancake breakfast every morning was surprisingly good, even though they often ran out of condiments.
Excellent atmosphere, one of the most social hostels ever stayed in. Could do with some extra tweaks to the rooms like more sockets, reading lights but we coped no problem. They've only been going a few months. Exceptional hosts!
If you like to party this is the place! very helpful staff!!!
The hostel has a boozy community feel to it. The bathrooms were quite poor, very little privacy and not much space. The hostel didn't feel very inclusive of the city it was based. Good if you want to party every night.
This is a party hostel. If you're not a partier you can still avoid this though. Great atmosphere. The lockers don't always shut properly. Overall great stay! I recommend the free walking your by Kate

By far the best hostel I've stayed in. Free pancakes for breakfast and double beds, loved the 5 euro family dinners every night. The hostel itself is very clean with good facilities, but it was the staff that really made this place stand out- everyone was so friendly and went out of their way to create a fun and welcoming atmosphere, resulting in almost the entire hostel hanging out together.
Guys I had a fantastic time there, it was really great to meet you all and hang out with you guys. Will you are doing a great job with this hostel, keep doing your thing!

I liked my stay at urban garden! It's a great place to meet people and the staff were really friendly. Double beds in all the dorms, and pancakes for breakfast! The bathrooms suck though, basically no privacy, they really need an upgrade.
Fantastic hostel I would highly recommend
This is an incredible hostel, full marks across the board, but an extra special tip of the hat to the staff, who were some of the nicest hostel-working folk I've ever met. Cheers guys! x
Such a fantastic hostel! The staff all go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome- pancake breakfast and family dinners are a must. Would definitely recommend.
