The staff here are lovely. The hostel itself is very centrally located and close to all amenities. I felt very much at home. The only downsides were that I couldn't sit up in the lower bunk beds ( because they're so low) and the lockers aren't big enough for whole suitcases. But they're the only (small) things, everything else was...

Totally recommended..! what can you expect from a hostel when the saying on the reception wall says 'the best way to travel is to feel. Feel everything in every way' Quiet and calm place, spacious room and kind staff. Would definitely go back. Nice vibes :) Obrigada

Very nice place, very friendly staff. I had really good time, the only problem was some noise during the night (due to the lock of the doprs), anyway I recommend it. It's pretty clean, comfortable and near the centre of the city, in a quiet area. You can use the kitchen and a shared area wich are comfortable. Inside it...

I don't know if it was just a bad timing when I was there, but it was totally quiet. When I woke up in the morning I was the only person in the whole hostel. Its all nice, but I thought it was a bit expensive for the facilities they have. Evora gets crazy hot, they did not have any...

Thank you very much for your comment about Namasté. Well....Namasté is a very quiet Hostel with very quiet guests....so, if your idea was to meet people and a crasy atmosphere....no. And it's hot, because we are in Summer time and maybe you did not follow the rules on how cool the room, because we do not have air conditioning as...

I stayed in the 4 bed dorm, and it was the most spacious dorm I've ever come across yet! The hostel is beautiful and well decorated with an adorable little outdoor/patio area.

I enjoyed my short stay at Hostel Namaste. The room was cozy and clean. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. It is centrally located with plenty of parking right outside the door (paid parking) or a few blocks away (free).

A scheduling issue developed right after we booked a stay at Namaste. I had to send a series of emails to Namaste. In all correspondence, they were super nice and accommodating. Because of the scheduling issue we were not able to stay the night at Evora or Namaste, so I cannot comment on the cleanliness or comfort of the hostel....

Again Mr. Rossen demonstrates his anti-diplomatic nature and poor moral training, using TripAdvisor to tarnish the excellent image of the Hostel Namasté!He booked by Airbnb and insists distort what happened, that I'm not going to report here because that would give it the importance that Mr does not have at all.

“In my personal opinion having stayed in three different rooms in Hostel Namaste, each room is very unique with it's own theme and character. If you want to be closer to the shower, sleep on the south-side or downstairs. If you would like a view over the little square, sleep towards the front of the building - if you might like to have view over the courtyard and veranda then sleep in the inner part of the building.”

“The twin bed in the Rose room has both a headboard and footboard and is not very long. I am 5'6" (171 cm) and I fit but If you are tall, you might have a problem with this particular room. The beds in the other rooms are longer.”
