The location is the only thing this place has going for it. Room smelled really bad, it was cold, we only saw a staff member once, the beautiful patio they advertise was locked. If we hadn’t run into another guest checking in we wouldn’t have had the code and been able to get in. Lockers were downstairs, luggage storage was a bike lock attached to a wall, no place in the rooms for your belongings, no 24h reception, only a fridge and microwave, no utensils or cups. Lots of false advertising.

Well located for exploring the old town, cafes and fado show. Carlos (on reception) communicated well before and during my stay so that I was able to check in and store my luggage securely. Lack of communal areas meant that this was a ‘quiet’ hostel - I had my dorm room to myself. Great showers and very clean. Perfect for a 1 night stay.

Very good hostel. In the middle of the old city, close to the University, and the two main bridges of the city.
