Very nice dorm rooms with a great view. Beds are super comfortable. Central to all tourist attractions. Bathrooms were not cleaned at all during the 2 days we stayed and breakfast food was average. Breakfast service was understaffed and we waited 15 minutes to get coffee. When I went to reception to complain there was no one to be found. Ended on a bad note but will go back due to price and location.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautifully lunar themed hostel. The dorm rooms were clean and the beds immensely comfortable with the most breath taking views of the magical Sintra, it felt like we woke up in a fairytale.
However, the bathrooms could have done with some cleaning. For the entire duration of our stay the floors were sopping wet and littered with dirty paper towels.
The kitchen can do with a standard kettle.
Breakfast service was done by only one gentleman. There were far too many hungry people to feed and keep happy by only one person serving them. We had very little time left before we had to depart and ended up spending a lot of that time waiting to be served.
Apart from that our stay was lovely!

Probably the best hostel ever, better than most non-luxury hotels too! The location is good, the entire place is clean and well designed, with all the perks and facilities of a hotel/home, the rooms are comfortable (beds are great!!) and have personal safes, and most importantly the staff are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Seriously, if you're looking for a place to stay in Sintra, and a bed is available, and the price is ok with you, stop looking further, just book this.

Everything is great. Warm-hearted staff and a wonderful please. U can enjoy the sight in your own room. Breakfast is nice with bacon and eggs. Only a few minutes to get to sceneries. Convenient traffic and cool weather even in summer.

We visited this place in the center of town and I was shocked to find out it is a hostel. We had lunch here (which was just as good or better than a regular restaurant in Lisbon) and were given a tour of several of the rooms which were large, had great light, and several had amazing views. Our next time in Lisbon we will stay in Sintra for two days and stay overnight here!!

Stayed here for three nights in a dorm. Is very close to train station and very friendly staff.
One thing we found odd was the breakfast. I think every one should be served the same. Surely scrambled eggs don't cost much to make for all guests, I'd even pay an extra euro for them in the room rate, instead of been served bread ham and cheese while others got eggs.
Apart from this we had a great stay and would stay there again. Clean rooms,bathrooms and kitchen. Nice outdoor area, good wifi. More of a family atmosphere then a regular youth hostel. But was nice for a relaxed few days in a very scenic area.

Superb setting with inviting outdoor areas and very comfy rooms, and even an ecofriendly touch - automatic lighting in rooms and bathrooms, self-release shower button... Love it! To top it off, the staff is absolutely fantastic, friendly and always keen to help. Thumbs up to Pedro, Christina and the others for that.
