It's a bit more expensive but very clean, incredibly central and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We were there over New Year's eve and had a good time. I know Lisbon very well because I studied there and have been to this hostel for the second time because I think it's fantastic value for money.
The hostel was clean and nicely laid out. It was a bit far away from the rest of the city - maybe a 15 min walk which you can't do at night. The atmosphere was backpacker with some more stuck up backpackers but also a couple of nice people. Staff was ok but white staff was really rude. Plus when we asked how much a taxi to Livingston - so just behind the border - would be, nobody had a clue what's going on just 5km away.
Very nice hostel!!!
Great hostel and good location! We got valuable tips on how to see the falls - especially with first going to the Wind of Caves and then to the Maid of Mist. Plus Donatellos for dinner!!!
All good. Convenient location and good rooms. Not super but very recommendable
