The old man who is at the reception most of the time (I don't know if he is the owner) was pretty rude to us. The room description said it included air conditioning, but the room he first put us in didn't have any, just a really tiny ridiculous fan. We complained, and he said that the hotel description said...

This is a verry cheap hotel, and you can't expect more. It's all fine for a few nights, but not more. The personel was nice, a bit loud, but verry helpfull. They did not speak a lot of english, just portuguese. It is 10/15 min to walk to the next metro stop.

Nice place to stay for few nights. Private parking spot, but a bit challenge to drive up. Quite place. Small rooms. In my booking was written to have a room with AC, no AC. Staff doesn't speak English. 20 min walk from the river.

This is a family business, with one-two employees who help cleaning. The house is in extremely poor conditions, with mold everywhere. The bed was squeaking, the furniture, bed sheets and towels were worn out. Under the bed sheets (that were almost transparent for being so deteriorated) there was a plastic sheet. There was no air conditioning (as presented on Booking),...

Price and close to the city center. Difficult access to parking place - on the hill behind the accommodation. Really small rooms without free electricity plug - only one. Average clean and poor Wi-Fi. Staff dont speak english.

Why? Why when I called the hostel to inform them that I will check in in the morning instead of in the night to be sure they won't cancel my reservation... The man on the phone yelled at me because i dont speak portuguese? He was very agressive and he didnt speak another language so it was impossible to talk....

This hostel is not far away from a city centre (about 15min), the price for a double room is very low. Of course, the room is not impressive, but staying for one or two nights it is just perfect. Even though the staff does not speak English, they are friendly and very welcoming.:)
