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 in a room with a double bed, much to my sons horror! The light above the bed didn't work and only one of the two lights in the bathroom worked intermittently, which was the one hanging off the wall by the wires. Thankfully the bed was clean. The daylight showed the dirty stains on the wall. In the shower there was a socket with wires hanging out, I don't know if it was live or not and to be honest didn't find out!! The shower was covered in mould and mildew....... Horrid! There was no safe deposit box either in the room or in the reception area, which meant I had to carry our passports on money around with us all the time, which is not ideal.
I didn't complain at the time as the 'hotel' was full and Lisbon was full to capacity as it was Champions League Final weekend, which is why we were there (my wife had a look for alternative accommodation, which was in the region of £3,000 per night as only the best hotels were left)
Had I of wanted a hostel or was with my mates I would have roughed it and booked one of the 11euros a night ones.
The only plus for this hostel is it's location for the sights
