We were kinda disapointed seeing the buidling, because it is old and in a very little street, but don't judge a book by its cover. This hostel was perfect! It is close to the city center so you are not obliged to take a bus to go eat or visit. We stayed in a private room for four persons with...

Pretty nice and comfortable hostel in the centre of bairro alto in Lisbon! I stayed in a double private room for two nights and everything was cool. The location is great, the included breakfast is good and the guys of the staff are very kind ! Recommand it.

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...

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...

Friendly helpful staff that are happy to give advice and recommendations on Lisbon. Stayed in a dorm room but had it privately to myself. Bed had light and powerpoint above it. Hostel is in the party area but the windows have good sound suppression, however you will still hear a bit of the partying going on - however this hostel...

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...

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

Says, a hostel that me and my southern pals would describe as "top drawer". Absolutely perfect location, right in the heart of Bairro Alto and surrounded by great bars and views overhanging the city. The pricing structure was cheap, the rooms were comfortable, the free breakfast was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful (shout out to the Porto fan and...
