Very unique structure of the building. The second you enter the hostel you are practically on the balcony by the reception, with people usually relaxing on it to welcome you, feeling like home. Staff are perfectly friendly, they will give you 100% of their attention (in time ofcourse) to help you with advice for sighstseeing, or even just to hang...

Its very close to Cais do Sodre, the metro/trainstation in the south of the city, so its easy to go to/from. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and...

This hostel is definitely the best we have stayed in. It was a 5 minute walk from the metro, and on arrival we were greeted by the staff who were really friendly, gave us advice on places to go and let us know everything we needed to know about the hostel. Great common room areas on both floors, with well...

Couldn't have asked for more. The staffs were very friendly and helpful, recommended us some really good and affordable local restaurants (the places where the locals go) within walking distance and we were really happy with all the restaurants we went. They actually print their own map which was really helpful, the map showed the places of interest, viewpoints, grocery...

Been to several hostels in Europe, US and Canada.. but this one's been the best so far! Right in the centre of Lisbon, only 5 min walk from the train station. From there you easily get to one of the beaches nearby. Very nice furnished, clean, good breakfast in the morning and most important: very friendly and helpful hosts/employees. Definitely...
