This is not your typical rowdy ragtag motley crew of people going bananas in this hostel. This is more for of a hybrid between backpackers and people who stay there for extended periods of time, including families. Therefore at night we were quiet and got to actually have conversation with each other and made deeper connections with one another. Don't...

Well, i stood there for weeks, and I have NOTHING to complain. Everyone is friendly and looking forward to help you. Also, the hostel is pretty close to everything... metro, sightsee tour, markets, restaurants, etc. Oh, and the breakfast is awesome too! Haha You will not regret! ;)

I've stayed a couple of days in this hostel and I have to say that you feel like home! It's a good place to meet people, the staff is awesome and Odette the owner makes a delicious soup every night, and she does it for free. The breakfast is included which is very good.

Room was spacious despite sharing with 5 others, comfortable and clean beds and sheets with individual charging ports and lamp. Only a few showers and toilets, so might be a queue when people happen to want to shower/use the toilet at the same time, otherwise the showers and toilets are very clean and well maintained. Good breakfast, with helpful staff...

Perfect hostel - homely, friendly and helpful staff, bathrooms somehow always clean, comfy beds, good location, activities to join if you want but not if you don't. Plus the morning packages were a nice touch! Thanks to all there!

Reception: Very friendly! They explain and help you with everything! Room: Very clean BUT get rid of the little ventilators, they are full of dust! If you turn them on, your bed will not be clean any more. Kitchen: Very clean and free pancakes in the morning. Freshly baked by a very lovely lady. Overal: I would recommend!

This place is located around 200 Meters from a metro station but around 2 KMs from main attractions (Baixa/Alfama/Commercial Square etc.). You will mostly have to walk to these attractions (20 mins) as you will end up walking to/from metro station anyways. Reception service is 24*7 and they help you with suggestions to roam/eat around.
