The price didn''t include breakfast but there are a number of restaurants, cafes, pastelarias (and even a McDonalds if you have to have it) within a block or two. The pension is about 3 blocks from the long distance bus terminal.
My only major complaint was that it was noisey at night. The door is locked at night and guests need to ring the (very loud) doorbell to get in. Two out of the three nights of my stay, I was constantly woken up by other guests ringing the buzzer, sometimes as late as 3 a.m. Also, any conversations in the hall are easily heard by people in the room.
Although the location was handy due to the bus terminal, the noise factor made me decide not to rebook when I returned to Lisbon.
If you''re looking for budget accommodation and can sleep like a log, you might want to check this place out.
