    I had an amazing two night stay here! I would have stayed longer if I could and I’m definitely coming back. This hostel is properly clean and especially in off peak times, you have a lot of space and it’s very chill. The only thing I would say is that it might be hard to get work done, because you’re gonna want to join in on all the fun that this hostel has to offer!

    12/10. Nice Way Cascais is amazing, mostly due to the culture and atmosphere created by the staff and management which makes it consistently a great time whenever you go. I've returned a few times and it's a great place to meet people, surf, and base your Lisbon trip if you want to explore surrounding areas. Ensure your stay coincides with Thursday or Saturday (or both) for barbeque and sangria night to get the authentic Nice Way Cascais experience

    I loved that place! I got there and I immediately felt welcome! Such a chilled vibe, I extended 3 more days cause I loved it. The barbecue was fun and lots of food that was a chance to get to know all the other travelers and the staff. The party is great there always something to do. I loved it and I’ll definitely back!

    A beautiful, relaxing, friendly and welcoming hippy commune-esque retreat tucked in the back streets of Cascais. Great atmosphere, kind and helpful staff. No rush, no stress, options to do all sorts of activities if you’re interested and a great pool garden to chill out in if you’re not. Would highly recommend.

    I really enjoyed staying here but was there in a quiet period so didn’t quite get to experience the social side of being here! The rooms were cosy, and had a great view! The staff were INCREDIBLE- so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back in summer!

    It's overall a good hostel. You have to keep in mind it's more of a 'youth' hostel than a hostel where you have facilities to work. They do offer surfing and other activities which is a nice plus. Also the breakfast for 3 euros is a good deal.
