I stayed with friends in private room with a shared bathroom. With a 24/7 front desk and having booked an extra night, we were able to check in at 6:00 am. The room is clean, with a tiny balcony, AC, and each bed had light above it and a small storage space to put your mobile or book. Would have... More

Initially, we thought that staying here would leave us too far away from the 'city', but i am happy to say that we were wrong. It's a ten minute walk from the Rossio station to the hostel, and actually, this is right in the middle of the nightlife area, so you can get home easily after a night out! That... More

The Staff was wonderful and helped with directions and planning, maps, etc. I loved that they remembered my name as well. Personal touches like remember a guest's name make all the difference. I have seen other reviews that said the noise from the local bars were disturbing but I disagree. If you are staying on the same street as the... More

Came here for a stag weekend. Most of the staff were extremely accommodating to us and had any information that we needed. Beds nice and clean for the price and location. My only comments for improvement is to give the building some care as some wall units were movable and unsafe

Good location in barrio alto, easy walk to train station. Good value with breakfast included. Can be noisy at weekend due to nightlife on street. 24 hour reception and were able to store our luggage on last day and return later to collect. Staff helpful

Convenient location. Cheap and includes breakfast (nothing fancy, but sufficient). Bed comfortable, bathrooms clean. Main problem was the noise. Unbeknownst to us the hostel is located in the nightclub district and there is quite a noisy nightclub right on that street. Fortunately there is air-conditioning in the room so you can close the double-glazed windows (which also have blinds to... More
