Property Description

Almaa Sintra Hostel is a retreat centre and a Eco Hostel located in the heart of the Sintra Mountain Range which cultural landscape is classified by Unesco as a World Heritage Site.

Our house is sited in a property considered one of the oldest in Sintra, dating back to the 12th century.

Our rooms range from 2 bed privates to 3 to 8 (made out of recycled pallets) bed dorms in a heavenly environment.

Sintra is located near the westernmost point of continental Europe, northwest of Lisbon at 600 meters above sea level. Sintra is greatly admired, since it is a freak of nature in that it possesses a climate and vegetation not common in Southern Europe.

Rich in history and tradition, Sintra with its romantic atmosphere has been lauded by many writers, painters and artists who have spread the fame of this Glorious Eden to every corner of the world.

We are located 10 minutes walking from town center and 40 minutes by train from Lisbon Almaa Sintra Hostel is the perfect place to be.

    If you like nature, peace and tranquility, just book your stay. I was one that questioned some reviews that I read, but I had a really great stay at this place. The property is neighboor with Quinta da Regaleira, and surrounded by such an amazing beautiful nature! For nights, there's even a pub next door! Breakfast is simple but enough. Atmosphere could not bring people too much together, but I enjoyed some inner peace,garden,books,cycled.Staff was kind, thanks Cristina, João,volunteers and dog.

    Nice atmosphere, mostly because of the magical place that Sintra is. Toilets need getting used to because some of them don't have doors, but I really felt at home there :)

    We really enjoyed our stay here - lovely staff and a great hostel ethos, in a stunning location. It's a bit difficult to find, but once you're there the views and natural surrounds are well worth it! We did however have a couple of problems with our room - we could padlock it while we were out, but couldn't lock it from the inside and had people accidentally walk in, which isn't great for a private room. The shower also smelled strongly of mildew, and was partly broken.

    Nice location so tranquil but the room we had was very claustrophobic with low ceiling walls and not the best locks on the shared doors. The shared bathroom was tight and cramped with little privacy while showing and using the toilet. The shower floor was slippery and cramped. Maybe there was a better room but our room was not what should be expected for the price.
