    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.

    I can't thank enough for this great stay, just very glad I had chose to spend some time in Cascais before continue cycling to Sintra. Staff at this hostel is amazing helpfull and nice, special thanks for Mônica that gave me some cool tips and a museum pass, and Alex for the barbecue cook. The hostel is in a great location, up a hill, but walkable distance to the charming city center and beaches. Barbecue was amazing and great atmosphere and great people! Had a blast and want to go back! Thanks!

    By far one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in! Such a friendly and relaxed vibe, I was able to fully relax by myself yet make some amazing friends when I felt like socialising and didn’t feel the pressure to drink, but had the option of you felt like going out. The themed dinners are great, especially if you’re solo: great food and really welcoming environment. Highly recommend!

    Amazing hostel! I stayed here for 5 nights and easily could have extended my stay. The hostel is a great place to meet people, so good for solo travellers. The pool/bar area is great and the hostel dinners are definitely a must - best way to meet everyone and the food is amazing! Great, chill atmosphere here. Facilities were clean and nice. One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in.

    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.
