My friend and I stayed here 7 nights and the staff were mostly lovely(except night time guy), breakfast was very passable. Just had a few issues like with the WiFi; we didn't care that it didn't reach our room but every night at about 9pm the password would change and then inexplicably change back the next morning. Got sick of...

Although location is perfect, there are some aspects that should be consider while choosing this establishment. Most of the stuff in hostel is lite bit worn out. Walls are VERY thin. Breakfast is out around 9:30, even though it should be there to at least 11. Cleanliness of bathrooms should be improved. Last thing is that there is no heating...

Very central in the heart of Lisboa, close to all main monuments and with a great connection to airport. The room was good and clean and the breakfast is included in the price. The best thing is the very affordable price for such a great location!

I usually stay in budget hotels booked by my travel agent but this time I decided to try something different for a short city break. I liked a lot of this place, for half of the price that I usually pay at a hotel, I got a premium location, a good breakfast, clean facilities and a very welcoming staff. I...

I spent a single night there after having been recommended the place by my former hotel's crew. It's really ideally located specially if you're to arrive or leave from/to the Sintra train or connectto the airport. I didn't bother much about the slightly filthy side road entrance either. Staff was friendly at first. They didn't seem to care for the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
