Fantastic location, central to everything.

Great value for what you get.

It is a low-cost solution for those who want to stay in Portugal and explore and still have enough money left over for attractions and sightseeing.

Negative Reviews

No Wi-Fi on lower level.

A few guests were upset that they couldn't connect to Wi-Fi Internet on the lower level of the hostel. However, there is a public computer with Wi-Fi Internet access near reception.

Noisy at times.

Some guests report that the hostel can get very loud at times and especially in the early mornings when guests are checking out or in. The soundproofing needs some work. There is also a restaurant across the road that holds large events at times, which has bothered a few guests.

Not secure.

There has been mention that some of the room doors in this hostel do not lock properly. Some guests have had to prop things against their door from the inside to feel safe in their room.
