Aside the fact that it’s 2km walking on steep roads this hostel is a 5/5 place to stay. The staff Filipa, Roxana and Marto were super friendly, Informative and helpful. They worked hard and stayed long hours to make guests comfy. For eg we had checkout at 630am but Filipa ensured the following staff Marto kept all Breakfast items ready and available the night before. Hostel bathrooms are well equipped and Super neat. My bunk bed though wasn’t as solid as one would imagine but our hostel room made up overall. Impeccable service and arrangements. Their recommended Sintra, Caba De Roca, Cascais and Belem tour was a private tour with RAD (Rent a driver) with Frederico. It was amazing and the tour price cost less than group tours if you are 3-4 pax. Even other wise Frederico is a rockstar super happy guide at budget prices. The hostel recommended the free walking tour too and although we took the yellow group and not the red group but the fact that the hostel sent us to all the best budget options make it great. The best ice cream at Lisbon Nanarella is 300 m away and a our vegetarian Portuguese restaurant is just opposite the hostel - both these information given by Frederico. Super happy and love Lisbon and Portugal for the people involved. Am yet to write blog on Lisbon but do check my other cheapest best travel blogs at emojisarebald com

And these to points are completed by some really warm welcoming from the people working there : they are not just nice but they have also really good advices to share regarding tour in lisbon or the bar you should try !

To start with, the location of the hostel is perfect you have accesd to touristic areas just by walking for a couple of minutes. The staff is really so helpful, kind and patient. The hostel is really modern and spacious in terms of rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast is more than you would need actually. You could use the kitchen to cook a meal or something throughout the day. I would definitely recommend that hostel as it's price is very fair.

The hostel is good and well organised. The staff is welcoming and nice. The structure of the bed is real wood so you don't have to sleep in the worst type of ikea beds. Common area is spacious and the breakfast is complete. Wifi is good and you can have also a second locker cupboard in the room. Bathrooms are big and showers, toilets and sinks are separated. You don't risk the morning queue if you just want to brush your teeth. The only negative thing is that you can just cook with one pan at a time so you don't get the chance to cook particular meals.
