If you want a basic simple place to sleep then this is fine. It's what you expect for cheap digs. Dated and a bit shabby but spotless and friendly staff. It's on the main Street of the area above one of very many restaurants so it's not quiet but you can sit on your window ledge and watch the bustle.... More

price is too high for the services offered and their quality is low. if you are not used to lisbon night street life, is better to think twice. on the other hand, one could find it really interesting. they don't serve breakfast, and for sure you can find better in lisbon. TV looked very old, i didn't tried it, and... More

We booked a double private room with a private bathroom at this location for three nights. It is in a very central location on a very busy pedestrian street. The entire property is very low quality. Our television didn't work, two out of the four lights in the room did not work, material was falling down from the ceiling in... More

Dismal looking place but with a great location. Rooms are clean (serviced daily), equipped with TV and AC, staff is friendly and the reception is open 24/day. It would be unrealistic to expect more for the price it costs. Please note: the central location has a downside - noise in the vicinity starts rather early in the morning so try... More

I stayed there a few years ago, but have been recommending it to friends since and never got a complaint!! Good value if you're only looking for a good & safe place to sleep: 24-hr concierge in downtown Lisbon! Sheets & towels changed daily, friendly staff. Close to everything you want to see in Lisbon. For the $$ you pay,... More

There was a group of us staying in this hotel in June, two couples and one single person. As it was only listed as 2 star on Lastminute.com we didn't have great expectations and i did start getting quite worried. It was only a place to rest our head so it was absolutely fine for that purpose. As you get... More

As I was travelling with my 10 year old son, I didn't want a hostel. This was advertised as a hotel and wasn't cheap, £300 approx for 2 nights. After finally climbing the stairs to the 4th floor and arriving in room 201, I was far from happy, our booking clearly showed our names and ages, but we were put... More

We have been on the road for 12 months, this was accommodation we would not return to. The location was perfect - right in the heart of the tourist area and surrounded by cafes and restaurants.

The hostel is very basic, but clean, excellent location, the staff is very friendly and polite, surprisingly with room service, so we had fresh towels every day 😊 The only disadvantage; there was no air condition in our room, so during the night was bit to hot and humid.
