“Good value, bad wifi”
Reviewed 11 May 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights and found the location just perfect, so central to everything especially the train station. No complaints with the room however the wifi signal was incredibly weak and you needed to sit in the lobby to get any decent reception.

We arrived in Lisbon with 1/2 our travel party sick from Morocco. While that is a long story, I can tell you that the people at this hotel went out of their way to be concerned and helpful. They did our laundry (for 15e) and let me bring breakfast upstairs. Considering the location, their price is half what the big hotels charge nearby with just as nice rooms. Parking at 10e/night is perfect; just realize you will not move your car the whole time there so unload it all.

Simple, quiet and safe. And close of everything. A lot of good and cheap restaurantes near. Excellent staff. Nice room but with only basic stuffs. Don´t expect too much and enjoy. The location (and price) is unique. The breakfast could be better, but "you get ehat you pay".

For under £20 a night per person for a triple room including a breakfast of fresh crusty bread rolls, this is an excellent hotel. The room was clean and the shower we had was lovely. The staff all had good English. Given the price, you can't expect luxurious extras, but the main things - helpful staff, cleanliness and a nice continental breakfast - were all there.

We stayed at the hostel for two nights. The location is great, central but not too noisy. The hotel offers parking in their garage for 10€.
The best with this hotel is the very helpful staff, who give good advice for the first time Lisbon visitor.
The rooms are very spartan, reminding me of a monastery, no paintings on the walls and nothing that I would call charming. However, the rooms were clean and the facilities were working just fine. Wifi works fine in the lobby, but not in the rooms.

Breakfast was rather simple too, but their bread buns tasted well.
I would recommend this hotel for visitors who are more interested in the city than in the hotel. You get a clean, simple lodging for the night at a reasonable price, but if you're looking for more luxury maybe you should try something else. And what really makes it worth the money is the great staff.

For the price I was surprised at the level of service provided by all the staff I encountered on my all too short stay. Any questions were answered and tips given on the area. Being a solo traveller it is important to feel safe and all the staff made me feel welcome and extremely safe. The location is great even although fairly central still quite quiet. The single room size was fine, however the bathroom was tiny but fully functional and clean. I would go back tomorrow.

Location was terrific and service even better. Great tips from management (family-owned and operated) on getting around, local restaurants, etc. Room on 5th floor front was quiet and a/c worked fine. Bathroom big, bedroom small. Bed a little hard and bedding about what you would expect for the price, but no complaints at all.
