This no-frills place a short walk from the nightlife of the Bairro Alto features modern design throughout, and offers basic lodgings (no wardrobe, just a rack, and you make your own bed) in doubles and triples. No discount is given for single use, but there’s an attic dorm: a little cramped, but the only part of the hotel with air conditioning. Here each curtained-off bed (rates from €15) has its own light, plug and locker, women have their own bathroom, and there is even a small roof terrace for smokers.
Downstairs, you’ll find a comfy bar (open Wed-Sun) and lounge area, as well as two esplanades out the back. In theory, free Wi-Fi is available throughout, but it’s patchy; there are also two internet PCs for guest use. No breakfast is served, but there are plenty of neighbourhood cafés.
