The Hostel is located in the central area of Lisbon close to all the bars and train lines. This is perfect for the days where you want to go for town visits and all day trips. After you come back you can have an affordable dinner in the area and make your way to Bairro Alto or Pink Street. Both...

Uepá Ronja, I am really happy you felt at home with us, that is one of our main goals!!! Nice to know you recognised that the closeness to the night life areas doesn't mean that we are completely party directed. We can party a bit in the hostel and hard close by, but we can also simply chill in the...

Very good location, super nice staff. Good value for money. Breakfast is fine, the showers can use some more cleaning. Nice and friendly. We stayed 3 nights, in the last two nights there was a group of very noisy kids, but beside them all was fine.

Uepá Gili, thanks a lot for resuming your stay with us so perfectly. Your opinion about the cleanliness of the toilets is actually related with the fact that they were extremely used this summer and need very big intervention. In reality, cleaning is one of the things we most care for. The good news is that we are getting modern...

Uepá Darla, thanks a lot for recognising the cool and friendly atmosphere that the staff creates and all the energy we put into it, whether by organising Sangrias and Dinners or simply by being ourselves. The extended breakfast time is definitely a good idea to be implemented. Specially for party people like you ;-) Big kiss from Lisbon and please...

Staff prepares a big bowl of sangria once or twice a week, which really gets the mood going. Great location, amazing staff, comfy beds and clean bathrooms. Only downside might be the lack of a/c. Kitchen and breakfast were also good.

Uepá Agustin, I think you found our main quality, which is to put people together in a cool and relax atmosphere.
