what can I say? I've been to 71 countries and have stayed at one too many hostels. and goodmorning hostel pretty much tops it all. even it would put a good number of 4 or 5 star hotels to shame with amazing and awesome staff.
I stayed for 5 nights. wonderful decor that many of my friends loved (as I posted pictures via instagram). great living spaces - living room, dining room, television room and kitchen. and the sleeping quarters are adequately sized. so were the bathrooms. and everything was so clean.
the staff (including the cleaning crew as well as the owner) are beyond amazing. a very warm welcome by joao. the staff would greet me every time I entered. would take time with almost every guest as with showing the whole place. laura even took the time to write down a lengthy page detailing how to get to sintra. and which buses to take to see each sight. and even where to eat. then how to get back from sintra to lisbon via an alternative and scenic coastal route. anna would make great waffles! and breakfast time was something to look forward each morning.
since I am deaf, and manuela also happened to know portuguese sign language (which is different than american sign language). we were able to communicate with each other, and manuela took the time to teach the other staff my name sign. how cool is that? she also took the time to take me to a deaf organization, which was quite nearby.
the hostel's location is perfect. close to almost everything. within walking distance. and getting from/to the airport was a breeze via metro.
manuela, joao, laura, anna, mia, joao pedro, benedita and others that I didn't get names. THANK YOU very much for the amazing hostel experience!
and absolutely a BIG YES that I'll stay at goodmorning hostel next time I'm in lisbon!
