    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.

    This hostel is pretty damn awesome. It feels like you live in a house with a bunch of friends as soon as you check in. Amazing staff that help you out with everything you need. The hostel is close to the city madness, but the street itself is quite and peaceful. Definitely a place to checkout!

    I don't give perfect scores but Nice Way earned every point! Nice Way is in a converted private home 10-15 minutes walk above downtown giving it the feel of an oasis from the tourist center. The facilities are impeccable - an onsite bar that serves food, nice bathrooms, and many of the rooms have balconies with pool views. But the biggest feature that put this hostel over the top is the staff. Each and every one of them enriched my time there and my life! Beautiful people inside and out! TY!

    This hostel is simply wonderful! The rooms are nice and cozy. The vibe is amazing - relaxed yet full of life. I will go back several times. Also, totally worth signing up for surfing lessons.

    Very happy with this hostel. Myself and my Fiancee were there. We came from a hostel in a small town/big village further north which had nobody, and then one in Lisbon, to this which was amazing in comparison. Great atmosphere, good value food and drink, and people were very friendly and chatty with group meals. The place was clean, had a lovely pool and little things like balance rope to do, and staff were great. We availed of SUP, surf and yoga while here too. The place was very safe too.

    Unfortunately the bathrooms were super dirty, in 2 showers ran around ants, the sinks were constantly dirty (toothpaste, various hair, soap residue, etc.) also there are no clothes hooks in the shower, which was super annoying (shout-out to the dirty sinks) The curtain or door was missing in one shower. In addition, there is no hand shower in all showers so showering is not great either. And the toilet cabins are extremely tight, have fun when u taller than 160cm. The rest was ok.
