Very hipster hostel, the interior looks funky and the beds are not traditional bunk beds which is nice. The bathroom is small but if you don't mind sharing then that is ok. Breakfast is simple but good. Hostel was very accommodating and was willing to hold my bags when I needed to leave later.

I loved this place, it is in a heritage building situated in central Lisbon. It has original cool archtecture and design with memoriblia throughout with cool and funky staff and clients. I met and made many friends here and tagged along for many social events including parties held by Portuguese living in Lisbon. It was the best time I have...

After a less than warm welcome (we believe we woke up the guy while he was dreaming of the love of his life :D ), everything was uphill. If you´re looking for a homey and quite place with class, this is it. There are 4 shared rooms. Each bed has their own large locker (bring your own lock and key!!)...

The location is perfect. Easy to find from the metro, close to a bus station and close to just about any important attraction with seeing. The hostel was clean and extremely stylish with a friendly staff always willing to help.

For a hostel, there is nothing more you could ask for. I've been here several times, both in shared and in "double" rooms and there is not much more I could ask for. Besides the fact that it's in one of the most central, albeit tranquil "windows" to central lisbon, each time I've come back ( I've been here twice...

My husband and I chose this hostel because they offered private rooms with a lot of space. We stayed in the 1923 themed room, which was comfortable for us. There is a shared bathroom shared with the 3 other private rooms on this wing of the hostel as well as a communal kitchen stocked with basic necessities. Bread is offered...

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. It is in a perfect location with walking distance to everything Lisbon has to offer. The staff were helpful and spoke english. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious.

A good and cheap hostel ideally located at the bottom of the historical center of Lisbon. The staff is very helpful in picking things to do and see in and around the city. Beds can be a little bit hard to reach if you have the top bunk, but rooms are nice. Showers could use a small improvement, and toiles...

Very nice hostel and so helpful staff :) the hostel is not far away from the metro. You reached the station in 2 minutes. Not easy to find, because outside is no sign. Good location there to eat and a supetmarket us 200meters away.
