Pretty amazing hostel in central location. It's a big hostel and cool for meeting people. I liked the rooms and the key-card locker system. Two negatives. 1) Wifi sucks at peak times. 2) The bar staff were very variable. They made us wait well over one hour until they finished their snooker game, I thought this very annoying. (I appreciate it will take time because of working but it's very selfish!!). Also, one barman was fine to me but very rude to other guests with minor reason in my opinion.

Hi there! Thanks very much for your remarks! Well, to be perfectly blunt: if they prefer to play snooker they need not suffer to work here. I am very sorry about this and we will talk to them immediately! But I'm glad that you had a good time here otherwise. Take it easy!

Perfect hostel. Massive rooms (completely silent at night), clean bathrooms, very friendly staff (seriously, everyone is great), and wifi worked perfectly everywhere. Loved the garden terrace and I think it's a nice layout to the hostel common area. Location is excellent, just by the station and pretty close to several supermarkets & takeaways. Not a party hostel, it's pretty chill with a very cheap bar so great for meeting people!

Good location near the station, friendly staff, good atmosphere for meeting people. Poor wifi (esp. in common area), average rooms, but the bathrooms were nice.

Epic hostel. Amazing staff, great food, nice activities, an unbeatable location at an inexpensive price point! Other positives;really nice bathroom+rainfall shower, decent bed frames+beds (which don't creak), solid WiFi even on fourth floor. If I had one complaint it would be that the pillows are just awful (I find it very hard to sleep on such a thin, single pillow. I had to fold in half to sleep).. but you cannot sway your opinion on this minor point :) Oh well, for me the #1 hostel in Lisbon

Booked as a place to crash for the night. Booked a 12 bed dorm, ended up in a nice 4 bed room. Nice, friendly staff, great location and a good night's sleep- can't ask for more!. Definitely not a party hostel (good, depending on what you want). My only quibble is that at 6'2" I found bunks too small in length. I'd say it was around 1-2" too small. I slept fine, but my knees were a little stiff in the morning. Fine for a night, but if you're booking a week and tall make sure you get a real bed!

Stayed here on several occasions. It's a nice hostel in excellent location. Stayed in a 10 bed dorm this time, and room was pretty comfortable for the night. Nice beers on tap downstairs, friendly staff, and a good night's sleep one minute from the center.

Beside lamp didn't work, heat was extreme so couldn't sleep. Bathroom: Light didn't work and there's no window!! The shower room was *absolutely* disgusting!! and I say this having stayed in pretty awful hostels! Shower covered in empty shower gel packets (15+), toilet roll, hairs, and generally dirty. Seriously, it hadn't been cleaned for days. Rude staff who used tinder whist I tried to check in. Amazing location but I would NEVER stay here again. Honestly, the worst place I've ever stayed!

This is easily one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Facilities, Rooms, Bathrooms, everything is like new, clean and furnished to high standard. I read two main negatives before I booked; staff & location. Personally, I preferred being outside of the village, it's in a peaceful location and I can't fault the hostel for a short stay. All staff were friendly when I was there. If I had one complaint, it would be that it's nice to have breakfast included in an otherwise exceptional hostel.

Cool hostel, central location and nice for meeting people. Rooms are basic but more than adequate (although they get a little warm), bathrooms cleaned regularly. Positives are the breakfast (the hot bagels and muffins are great), wifi works well, friendly staff, nice location for partying, the food is really good for a hostel (esp. the greek salad), nice hostel organised events (day/evening). Would definitely come back here.

Poor hostel with rude staff (with the exception of Tom who was great). The key cards for the room stop working constantly, the staff blame you even though every single person in a room has the same issue! They expect you to collect toilet rolls yourself from reception to refill bathroom; clearly they don't clean everyday. There's a lot of noise from the street. Bad for meeting other travellers and we found the music in the bar too loud to talk when we met people.

Great hostel, friendly staff. Little bit of a walk from the tube station but hostel more than makes up for it. Also, nice to see two showers in a 6 bed dorm- I've hardly seen this in any hostel.

In all my travels this is the one hostel I felt most at home in. Simply the best hostel I've ever been. Hostels are about more than just the room and in this regard this place excels. The staff are what make this place. Made so many good friends here and had many nice times. Thanks :)

Mostly good however a LOT of noise from school groups running around the corridors and screaming until the early morning. I didn't sleep in the two days I was here, that said this is a fault of the guests and not the hostel. Also poor for meeting other travelers. possibly I was unlucky as it's otherwise a good hostel.

Excellent hostel, perhaps lacking some character but made up for in all other aspects. Location is a little distant however public transport is good- both during the day and the night bus. Area surrounding the hostel is not bad for amenities, but don't go flashing your money as there are people which approach asking for use of monies, phone, etc.
