    Went as Portugals hospitality sector was opening back up after the pandemic, the place was very clean and I observed them disinfecting every surface. The pool was lovely, warm from sun most of the day and clean. The view from the balcony is amazing and can see right to the bay. Staff where very helpful and kind, 10/10 experience

    Nice Way is the perfect hostel for anyone looking to spend some time exploring Cascais. It is a short walk from the main train station and well positioned to reach beach, bars, supermarkets on foot too. Nice Way hostel is big and clean with comfy beds and curtains for privacy, the facilities are all very clean and feel more luxurious than a hostel especially for the price. All the staff I met were friendly and very helpful, I could have stayed weeks here!

    Nice building very near the downtown area. Electronic door locks were state of the art and gave a sense of safety and security. The grounds were spacious with an inviting pool and deck area that has a bar with 1/2 price happy hour. Plenty of space to store surfboards and they have bike rentals available too. Hosts gave great advice on local restaurants and directed me towards the weekly Saturday market that is very lively and interested (make sure you check out the restaurants on the 2nd floor.

    Great location and facilities, bar, pool, bikes to rent and they organised surf lessons nearby which was great. Has a slackline and balance trainer, seems like a pretty serious surf hostel. Not many were staying there given the current situation, most were Portuguese speakers living there long-term so not quite the international hostel atmosphere you'd expect, but was still fun.

    The hostel is in an excellent location near city center, a pool and a modest breakfast for a reasonable price. The beds are very comfortable and the showers have great water pressure. We arrived late and the night staff placed us in an odd room, but the next morning Mónica was very kind and helpful to move us to a room with a balcony and gave us lots of tips on what to do around Cascais! We ended up renting bikes for 10 euros and exploring the coast line trying all her food recommendations.

    Awesome hostel, unfortunately we arrived at a time when the global pandemic was ramping up and so had to cut our stay short and also not enjoy additional options they would usually have available (like breakfast, towels, bed curtains etc.) Staff were super pleasant and helpful especially when it came to refunding us the nights we could not stay and giving advice on beaches to visit and places to eat. Rooms and bathroom were very clean. Kitchen could have clean cloths.
