Liked: The room was recently renovated, and the bathroom was big and clean. The staff was friendly. The room was also big enough for four persons.

Disliked: There was a lot of noise form the street; people walking by, many fado singers. The mattress of the bed was very soft and thin. Breakfast was poor (only bread and marmalade).

Liked: The hostel has a quaint "local" feel to it, and at nights you can hear faint Fado songs from the alleyways of Alfama through open windows. The view we had was one of the blue sea. The staff was extremely helpful - I had a lovely one hour chat with one of them on history of Portugal.

Disliked: The building is a little old, so doors can be a little difficult to lock/open. Be prepared to climb stairs, so heavy luggage not advised. It will be great if we can get a locker in the room.

Liked: Quite Nothing except the common areas

Disliked: Noise in the street (no phonic isolation at all)!! Impossible to sleep, we had to buy ear plugs! All of the services are very low or absent: Its dirty, its very small, the bathroom smells mold, there are almost no furnitures, no place for a night table beside the bed, almost no plugs. We couldnt pay with a credit card, had to pay cash a big amount, had the impression to trade on the black market (bill hand writed, no tax paid). The lady at the reception speaks very bad english and is not nice. Its old, we had the impression to be swindled and asked for our money, and to sleep in a slum.

Liked: Cheap and clean place, with a very helpfull stuff and a great view on the river (at least from our room on the third floor). There are several nice little pubs and Fado-Bars around and the metro and the city-center are very close too. Would definitely go there again!

Disliked: Breakfast wasn't that special, but nobody is perfect ;-).

Liked: The room was clean and nice. We were near a bathroom and the hostel seemed very secure.

Disliked: The staff was horrendous. They were rude and unprofessional. When we arrived to check-in we were going to pay with a credit card, as is customary when paying a large bill. They told us they don't accept credit cards, but said we could pay the next morning, or even at check out once we had cash. When we went to check-out they told us that we would have to pay in exact cash because they didn't have change. After a few minutes of arguing she gave us change for our key deposit, but she was very difficult to deal with. If they aren't going to accept credit or debit cards then the need to have plenty of change on hand. The breakfast staff was also very cold, not welcoming.

Liked: Great place, good location and super friendly staff! They were so kind that Cristina (receptionist) was worried about the bed size as my husband and I are quite tall. Had a great chat to the girl from Cabo Verde (forgot her name), she even checked the weather forecast for us!

Disliked: Nothing. It was just perfect!

Liked: Beira Mar doesn't do itself justice when described by the word 'hostel'. It was beautifully decorated and very bohemian, being located in the old town gave it outstanding character whilst still being close to the city centre and the staff were all fantastic. We felt like we we're staying in a five star hotel. I cannot recommend this place more.

Liked: I would recommend this place to anybody! I have a very very enjoyable stay at Beira Mar. Most of the staff workers speak fairly fluent English (enough to hold a conversation and advise you on any questions pertaining to travel). Extremely friendly and more than willing to help any tourists or non-locals. A friend and I stayed in a Private 2- Person room. The bedroom and the shared bathroom were extremely clean. The complimentary breakfast wasn't extensive; there was toast, butter, jam, corn flakes, milk, hot coffee, hot water, and tea. **Side note: The Wi-Fi wasn't working very well, but that was just very minor.**

Disliked: A couple of cab drivers told us that the area/neighborhood around the hostel (Alfama) has a few dark streets and that people are prone to pickpockets. Otherwise, Beira Mar is centrally located. 10 minutes walk from Santa Apolonía station and Placa de Comercio.
