Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's a nice hostel in the middle of the lower part of the city. Very close to the beach, not far from the bus station. Also there are a lot of cafes and restaurants around. The owner is very nice and friendly, the room was clean and warm, which is very impornant in winter. We had a room at the upper floow and wi-fi was fading away in there. We had only one night in the hostel, so not a big deal.

so many bad things happen when i come to this hostel 1, firstly ,they put me underground, have some typical bad smell of the underground, so i ask the frontdesk lady that if i can change the room to upper floor, 2,after i come to one upper bed in upper floor, i find there is no power supply in upper bed , the problem is all the room door has no lock, if i charge my iphone at the ground ,it will be possibly stolen in the night when i sleep. i can't lose my phone cause all my data in it , and it worth more than 1000 euros 3, i ask the frontdesk again if i can choose the lower bed, the guy of frontdesk is totally angry , he say "i joke with him , " why i come all the way to nazare to joke ? then say " you pay 20 euro for hostel ,how good environment i want?" ,so 20 euro should be underground with bad smell ? should be unsafe witch i might lose my iphone? then i cool down ,don't say nothing, come upper floor to my room , and thinking don't charge phone is fine , it's only one night. 4, then the most bad thing happen , the frontdesk guy come up again , using his finger to point at me, to say this angryly and loudly ,"don't joke with me ,it's my hotel ,don't joke with me! you can't charge your phone ,is your problem ,it's not the hostel problem ,if you don't want to stay just go away ," i thought this issue is already over, but seems he never want to stop ,if it's goes too far , i might be not safe, so i say i will leave your hostel ,please give my money back , then he say he will charge 5 euro for i have take the shower. 5,i don't agree at all , then i call the police to solve the problem, the police help me find my money back , if you want to make your trip a total disaster , then choose this hostel , then you will be totally angry ,and ruin your holiday, don't choose this hostel ,they attitude is so bad !!!!!!

To be honest, this hostel looks nicer than most hotels for a fraction of the price. Stayed here a couple of nights while checking the surf in Nazare. Great WiFi, hot showers, bed were comfy and warm with extra blankets, and decent breakfast every morning with fresh bread. Only downside; if there is one, if a large group stays and decides to chop it up all night downstairs in the kitchen area you will hear every footstep, conversation regardless of you don’t. Cheers!

Antonio is the owner of the hostel, He is super nice and sociable. I have loved spent one night in his hostel and I would like having had more days. I slept in a female room of 6,clean and well equipped,with a private toilet. The breakfast is social :a big table where you can sit down next people you don't know but you are already talking after 1 min. The atmosphere is amazing. I will come back soon my dear Antonio. Nazarè is in my heart. Ilenia

I just stayed one night here. It’s a modern hostel, excellent location, weaving your way through cute alleyways in the old town. Room spacious and comfortable, but plastic under the sheet and pillow is not so comfortable. Somewhere to hang towels/jackets on end of beds would be useful!? Maybe it was the end of the tourist season mid November, but the staff were not very helpful, were a bit short and rude. I accidentally flooded the bathroom, and he wasn’t very nice about me wanting to clean it up for my roommates. I was directed to tourist office to get map and find out about the town, would be nice if the hostel had this information available. Not a very social hostel, but again, was quiet season. And at the breakfast I met some lovely folks! Nazare is an awesome town though and worth looking around!

Lab Hostel is a new or near new compact hostel located very near the beach in Nazare. I walked from the Rede Expressos bus stop through town with a wheeled luggage to the hostel. The hostel is modern & very clean (chlorine odor in room). My double room with private bath was on the top floor built into the attic. The bathroom is compact. I'm only 5'7" & it was quite tight in the shower height wise due to the slope of the roof. There are 2 roof top type windows for ventilation, which cannot be used if it is raining; however, the room does have an air conditioner. Breakfast is basic consisting of bread & slices of cheese & ham. The kitchen area cannot be utilized by guests. Note the local restaurants do not open for dinner until 8 pm! If you need to grab some groceries be sure to checkout the Mercado Municipal de Nazare up by the bus stop. Good place to pickup fresh produce, baked items & fresh meat/fish. There are also a few small family type eateries & highly recommend Cantinho da Svetlana (VG homemade soup & bifana).

This Hostel is yor best bet in Nazare. A block from the ocean, surrounded by wonderful shops and restaurants, you couldn't find a better location. The rooms are large and well appointed with very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are very modern and the whole place is very clean. The breakfast in the morning is substantial, and served for several hours. The refrigerator can be used to store your food or drinks which is also very nice. The owner is very helpful with suggestions of places to eat, history of the town. This is really an unbelievable find.

It is new, clean, small and charming hosts. Not much more you can ask from a hostel. We stayed in a 4 person dorm but only rented with 2, so the room was spacious and very modern. Cupboards etc made it look like a hotel room and not like the tyical hostel. Staff is very friendly and funny. The place is so small that they serve your breakfast, which is all around a family kitchen table, so you get in touch with people immediately. Location is very close to the beach and although there is no parking next to it, staff will show you places where to park for free. This place is amazing and I would definitely come back - just for the hostel.
