    Beautiful quiet house not far from Sintra historical center. Felipe and Vera were kind of patient. All the guests were kind and quiet and the views from the terrace were great, would stay again!

    I had a really wonderful time staying at the Five House, it felt like staying at a friend's. The prepared breakfast was the perfect start to the day and Filipe and Vera were the sweetest and most helpful hosts you could wish for. The house itself was immaculately clean and filled with interesting books and pictures. It's located a short, scenic walk from most attractions in Sintra and made for a lovely temporary home. I hope to visit again soon!

    Beautiful house, in a peaceful location with the bonus of a real fire for cooler evenings. The hosts are very helpful, and put on a fantastic breakfast and throughout the day there is tea (EarlGrey as well), coffee and cake available (if other guests haven’t finished it). The beds are comfy with good quality linen, and towels are also supplied. I adored it so don’t hesitate please book it!

    Had a wonderful time staying at the five house, Very calm and quiet vibe, perfect for relaxation. The staff is very friendly and happy to help with every problem. They even agreed to keep our bags safe at the hostel after the check out, allowing us to go for one last walk in Sintra. Overall beautiful, clean and lovely hostel, Would recommend everyone looking for a peaceful time in Sintra to stay There.

    Everything was top notch. The only thing small thing I could comment on is the room smells a bit damp and old, but the building itself is older so I don't think that smell can be escaped. Everything was extremely clean, even for someone as picky as me! The hosts were all very friendly, they come by and check in several times throughout the day and were responsive through Whatsapp. I can tell that they really love this home and want to provide the best experience possible. Great location, a gem.

    Really nice and clean, the people that run the place are wonderful (they also speak English). They don't live in the hostel so they email and text you the instructions on how to get in, it's not a big deal but if your not expecting it you might get stuck outside for a while. They have small lockers anything bigger than a backpack won't fit. I kept my bag in the floor with a lock on it. All in all it was a very pleasant experience, would book again.

    It was lovely- a little off the beaten path. But that added to the calm atmosphere. There were lots of added details which made it the nicest hostel that have stayed at in Portugal.

    The attic rooms had low ceilings so I would not recommend it for any tall person. The beds might be too short as well.
