Honestly the best hostel I ever stayed in thus far! From the location, to the excellent facilities and friendly staff: they made sure I had a wonderful time! Each staff member knows Lisbon inside and out, and gave me great tips the whole time I was there. While I believed I would have enjoyed my time in Lisbon had I...

First of all the hostel is clean, handy for discovering the best spots of Lisbon and even if you are in an eight bed dorm, you have all the space that you need. But the most important things are that you really feel like home, the atmosphere is relaxed, it's really easy to make friends and the guys working there...

It was a bit hard to find, because the streets continues straight, but to the hostel you take a right. There is a narrow balcony which I didnt like so much because of my fear of heights. I arrived early so they let me leave my bag and come back for check in time. The room I got was of...

Uepá Sifath, thanks a lot for the time you took to make such a complete review the hostel.

We stayed at the hostel just for one day, but the building is really nice and original. The place had a youth and funny atmosphere, all the people (including the owners) seemed to be having fun all the time. The room was very nice, clean and well-kept new. I strongly recommend this place to have a great time in Lisbon.
