I am retired and travel full time, all year. This is one of the very best hostels that I have ever stayed in. The beds are perfect with full blinds for privacy and have reading lamps and electrical outlets. The beds are solid with no jiggle even when someone climbs onto the top bunk. Super clean and quiet. Great service and friendly staff, especially Risma, the daytime receptionist. The owner is on site daily and concerned about your well being. Located near Braga Street with lots of bars and restaurants. I booked for 2 nights but stayed for 8! I will be back one day!
