The welcoming was the first thing which made me feel really good. The people were amazing and really helpful with everything. The living room is really cozy with great atmosphere. We stayed in 4 bedroom with private bathroom. It was clean with a nice view. The last but not least it's close to the downtown so you won't need public...

The staff is very nice, the beds are comfortable, we can use the kitchen and the patio, which is very nice. The location is fantastic, we can get anywhere in 10min walking, it is very close to Praça da Liberdade and Mercado do Bolhão. In the bedrom that I stayed in the bathroom was inside the room, which was nice...

Really great hostel, in a great location, for a low price. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, willing to give us tips on where to go in the city, and suggesting walking tours, pub crawls, etc. Would stay here again, and recommend to anyone looking for a nice, affordable, clean, hostel.

Great stuff! Relaxed, informal, casual. Staff was very helpful and there were always people in the living room to chat. Was there 3 days and met so many different people. It was fun but not exactly party hostel kind of place. For me it was perfect, the only complaint was the receptionist sleeping in the couch when I left at...

The room was clean, the staff were great, the atmosphere was good as is a small hostel you can easily meet people. The location is not the best, but is very good. The price is fair, the only complain is that the last night I had to pay a little bit more than the first 2 nights.

We had a double bed and it was like a little cupboard. It was very cozy and the curtain provided you with privacy. The kitchen has a lot of supplies, the staff is very friendly and it was clean overall. The location is very nice and there is a possibility to park your car in the back.

I went to this hostel and the guys at reception desk were very nice. The room wasnt at all though. It had a bathroom and the door wouldnt close. It was tiny and messy. The kitchen and the lobby were very nice but unfortunately the travellers stay in the rooms, where I didnt take a picture because the whole time...

Great and helpful staff. Perfect for young people who want to meet others, like to party, and don't need much sleep! As slightly older guests, this wasn't the place for us, and sleep eluded us on the first night. We decided to move elsewhere, and the staff member ( jorge) was very helpful in finding us alternative accommodation.

Dear pdvlondon, We really appreciate your time and review. I agree that our hostel has a young ambience, but we also host many families in our double private rooms. Maybe, you should try this kind of accomodation next time. I am happy to see that Jorge could help you, our main goal our guest´s comfort. Best Wishes, Giovana

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm with a friend, we were staying the night to head to the airport the next day. We picked this hostel because it had a free private parking area as we had a rental car.
