Socially Oasis was great, met lots of really great people, the communal garden was a really nice place to have breakfast and chill out and there's a really great walking tour guide who organises some very unique experiences of Lisboa.
The gourmet breakfast was okay but I wouldn't really class it as gourmet (for the reason that the bread was just cheap white bread and the orange juice was Tang, I'm pretty sure).
Also, we drew the short straw of being stuck in the dorm where the toilet was so people were constantly coming in and out at all hours of the night. Which actually wasn't so bad at the end of the day if you have earplugs and an eye mask on.
We also were roomed with the worst guy ever, I'm pretty sure he brought a strange girl into our room and had sex with her whilst we were still there and he had the worst foot odour I have ever experienced, so my suggestion here would be to enforce a no strangers in rooms policy.
Apart from that the group dinners were really nice, the staff (except for one really flirty girl who made me constantly uncomfortable cause she was always hitting on people and it made me cringe) are fantastic and the location is GREAT!
