About Almaa Sintra Hostel

The Hostel was named Almáa which means “The Water” in Arabic due to the influence of the moors in this region and the fantastic natural spring water that supplies the house, the gardens and waters our home-grown organic vegetables. “Alma” also means soul in Portuguese.
Our beliefs in sustainability and in helping one another, made us manufacture our furniture with recycled materials done by local artists with the help of third sector entities (charities, voluntary organizations and social enterprises), that are also our main suppliers.

Accommodation Information

Our rooms range from 2 bed privates to 3 to 8 (made out of recycled pallets) bed dorms in a heavenly environment.

Location Information

Sintra is located near the westernmost point of continental Europe, northwest of Lisbon at 600 meters above sea level. Sintra is greatly admired, since it is a freak of nature in that it possesses a climate and vegetation not common in Southern Europe.
Rich in history and tradition, Sintra with its romantic atmosphere has been lauded by many writers, painters and artists who have spread the fame of this «Glorious Eden» to every corner of the world.
