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.

Disliked: Abigail left no negative feedback.

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.

Liked: The room was quite large and comfortable. We even had a little terrace. The room was clean, except for some paper in the recycle bin. The staff was friendly, especially the woman who served the breakfast.

Disliked: I didn't specifically dislike something about the property. The location could have been better. Though the hostel was close to the city centre, the way to the hostel from of Placa Commercio was a bit obscure (a lot of homeless people). I did not have any collusions however.
