    Location was great - walking distance from most places and opposite an amazing view. Staff were so helpful. Rooms were nice and everyone gets given a lock to keep their stuff safe. Bathrooms are single gender and usually pretty clean, and there was a hairdryer to use for free. In high season i think it would be a great place for solo travellers. 1 bad thing was the lack of overhead light in rooms, I get the concept as everyone has their own light, but made evenings before dinner awkward&difficult

    I enjoyed my stay. Modern, triple bunk beds in the room I stayed in, with a creative wooden step approach to allow for easy access to the upper bunks. Good security. When I was there they were in the process of reconstructing their lobby and reception areas, so those were a work in progress. Great location.

    We were originally placed in a room right above the restaurant and we couldn’t sleep well with music playing from 07:30 until 00:00. The staff were super helpful and amazing and allowed us to change rooms to another floor. I would easily go stay there again. Very clean and a central location in Lisboa.

    Its a beautiful hostel but there are no ceiling lights in the dorm rooms. The beds were comfy and there are a lot of bathrooms which is a plus. The social area is pretty dead due to the lack of lights, so it gets dim in the evenings and no one wants to hang out. Breakfast was alright, but they should cover the milk cuz I found dead flies two days in a row, and yes the staff were informed. Also, the bathroom stall doors have dried period stains on them, dunno how long theyve been there for.

    I’ve stayed in hostels all over the world, I wear a sleep mask & earbuds to bed—I know how to sleep in less than ideal conditions. This place defeated me. 6 nights, not 1 good sleep. Room was directly above the restaurant, which blasts music past midnight & starts again before 8AM. The bass vibrates up the bed into the mattress. & the 3-level beds shudder & sway whenever someone walks by. Other guests had terrible hostel etiquette, noisy & cagey. Staff were sweet, location great. But no sleep.
