Beautiful inspirational eco friendly place. Lovely people and nice, warm energy. You feel welcome the moment you enter the place. A place that flows with people and their stories. From hiking to yoga to meditation, to meeting new people. Its a place where you just can be. Just visit the place and find out for yourself.

Great experience! I just loved to stay in this eco-friendly hostel in Sintra. The place (building and surroundings) is beautiful, peaceful, with a very good energy and the staff is really nice. I simply fell in love with the cozy living room and its fireplace. It makes me feel like staying and staying, not forever but at least for a...

We liked the green/sustainable vibe of the place, and the common room and garden were very nice spaces to relax with fellow guests. Location near the regaleira was perfect. The room could have maybe used a paint job, but was comfortable and provided everything we needed. The breakfast included excellent fresh bread, but was otherwise pretty minimal. It's good for...

Obrigada, gracias, tusen takk ~ Thank you ! If you wonder why this place has this name Almaa ( both meaning water in Arabic and soul in Spanish) you simply should go to nurture your soul. And shower it with gentleness. This is people who " walk" their talk. I never felt more at home abroad than in this great...

I chose this hostel so as to base my time in Sintra somewhere special- somewhere comfortable and peaceful, with quiet for quality and uninterrupted sleep, with a deeply good energy to it, and steeped in nature without being too far from the city center to easily walk. Almaa Sintra delivered all of this, as well as free breakfast with strong...

Most people live in Lisbon and do a day trip to Sintra. I did the other way round. Lisbon is a great city but it's crowded, I had just visited Porto (another touristy place) and was seeking some quiet time. I could not have made a better choice of the hostel. I was supposed to stay 2 nights, but ended...

There are some pros and cons: We stayed there 6 nights and this was way too long. (We asked the first day if we could cancel the last 2 or 3 nights but they didn't agree). Although it's very cosy, clean and very nicely decorated, it's not so comfortable. The room is rather dark with little light. The bed linnen...
