    Comfortable spacious dorms, great kitchen and dining space. Well located as well relative to supermarkets and station and historical centre. Lovely breakfast - fresh coffee, soya milk, fruit, muesli, fresh bread. Bathroom facilities could be a tad better. Ie. Toilet door that locks, perhaps a door that sections off the shower area from dorm. But otherwise, lovely little place!

    Very nice hosts and a pretty good spot to see Sintra from. I enjoyed my stay here, but if you are looking for a social hostel I don't think this place is your cup of tea. But thanks for the stay!

    BED BUGS. From reviews below, this is clearly an ongoing issue. While the hostel moved us & cleaned affected beds, there was no fumigation or action taken to properly treat the issue and prevent reoccurrence. Staff lacked sympathy for the distress caused and refused to take any responsibility. ALSO: laundry in the area is very expensive and there was no offer of reimbursement. For reference, it cost 2 of us 25€ to clean and dry everything. Overall, VERY disappointed with the hostel’s response.

    The hostel is well located for transport and easy to find. Breakfast was good. The staff were really helpful on check in. However there were bed bugs- I had multiple bites and caught several bugs. I spoke to staff multiple times and consistently was told it must be mosquitoes even though I had the squashed bugs. They said never had an issue before, yet there were bug shells on curtains and bed frames. One night we had armed police walk in the room- the hostel door is left open to the street

    This hostel was below average. The showers and bathrooms don’t lock and one of the showers was broken when we were there. The kitchen smells bad and the fridge was broken. There are not enough ladders for the beds and someone stole my ladder from my bed when I was sleeping so I couldn’t get down. The location and staff are good, the breakfast is good but the hostel is not very nice and the rooms are dark and the beds uncomfortable. They also don’t give you towels. Wouldn’t recommend.
