“nothing special”
Reviewed 29 October 2010

Our room was very small for 4 people. The only thing that could actually fit there were the beds.... absolutely no place to move around, We visited in October and it was quite cold outside and the hostel had no heating so i was freezing cold at night. The room was smelly and so was the bathroom. At least, it was clean... that was the only positive thing about it. The tv didnt work but we didnt needed so we didnt mind. The reception was very lound late at night and no one spoke any English, French, or anything other than Portugues.

Stayed October 2010

Reviewed 4 October 2010

We booked a hotel over booking.com, but the hotel we made the reservation for was full (even though we received a booking confirmation by email). They sent us to this hotel, which was ok in the entrance area, but the rooms were smelly. It was generally kept clean, but there still was a dank smell in the rooms, and at least one room was infested with bedbugs. Also, the doors were really thin and the reception area really loud (TV and talking) until past midnight. The people at the reception were generally friendly (it got quieter after we asked them to turn the TV down), but unfortunately didn't speak any language except Portuguese. To top it off, I had to pay the fee for the original hotel which to my knowledge was a bit more than the hotel we ended up in. Not that those few Euros matter, but it still came as a surprise.
