    Absolutely stunning! I wish I stayed here longer. Great location for nightlife and more authentic Portuguese food and shops. The hotel/hostel was beautiful and had a rooftop bar with amazing views. It was clean and very stylish. Staff was very kind and accommodating. Out of my 3 weeks of travelling, this was definitely one of my favourite stays. I would 100% stay here again when I come back to Lisbon.

    This hostel was great! Great location, great staff, great free breakfast. Practically staying in a hotel. Such a great location, 20 minute walks to everything you will want to see, whilst also being in the heart of the food/ bar area. The only issue was being on the top level of a 3 story rocky bunk bed….other than that 10/10 for me!

    I would give this location a 10/10 but the bathrooms are a bit crowded. I understand that is not something that is really easy to change so its not that huge of a deal. Everything was very clean and there was a ton of attention to detail. You can rent towels for 2 euros and there is breakfast that is great included. This was my first stay in a hostel and it was honestly like a hotel level cleanliness and staff. It very much went better than expected and an amazing deal for the price.

    The staff were more than accommodating, and the scenery was immaculate, just struggled with how high and structured the stairs were to get to the 3rd top bunk

    Honestly thought I was in the wrong place, this is definitely the fanciest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The house is beautiful and the view to the square too. The breakfast buffet is also really amazing. I’ve found it very social as well and met lots of solo travelers. Only thing missing: more hooks and shelfs in the bathrooms and dorms!! It’s quite funny too that everything is so fancy but then there’s only curtains instead of doors in the showers. I didn’t mind though.

    This was my first ever hostel stay, and it was lovely! It was very safe, my items were very secure, and it wasn’t too hot at night. The staff were very friendly and the facilities were very clean as well. Only thing is the other travelers were not social whatsoever. There was no bar crawl and my female dorm was completely silent the entire time I stayed here.

    Got a private room, felt more like a hotel than a hostel! Beautiful interiors, even leading up to the room, generous breakfast, kind staff! Amazing Location- literally close to the nightlife! Not as social as usual hostels, but i didn’t really mind.
