My husband and I chose this hostel because they offered private rooms with a lot of space. We stayed in the 1923 themed room, which was comfortable for us. There is a shared bathroom shared with the 3 other private rooms on this wing of the hostel as well as a communal kitchen stocked with basic necessities. Bread is offered...

A good and cheap hostel ideally located at the bottom of the historical center of Lisbon. The staff is very helpful in picking things to do and see in and around the city. Beds can be a little bit hard to reach if you have the top bunk, but rooms are nice. Showers could use a small improvement, and toiles...

Very nice hostel and so helpful staff :) the hostel is not far away from the metro. You reached the station in 2 minutes. Not easy to find, because outside is no sign. Good location there to eat and a supetmarket us 200meters away.

Comfortable bed, great breakfast with more than enough food and options, and very clean. Stylish and casual.

Beautiful place near Lisbon's city center. The building is nice, and the inside very confortable, clean, with original decorations. It's not so big, so you feel a little bit at home. The "crew" is very helpful. EXCELLENT

Perfect location, staff very nice, good place to meet other travellers. The interior of the hostel is beautiful - very artsy. The bathrooms are kept in fine condition and there's many toiletries available to freely use. Free breakfast every morning.

I spent 3 nights here. The location is great for seeing the highlights of Lisbon. The hostel itself comfortable with lots of communal seating scattered about. Decor is tastefully funky. What was the most delightful was the very helpful and accommodating staff. Every one of the 4-5 that I encountered went beyond expectations to help with details of Lisbon and...

My husband and I stayed in the 1979 room (private double room, private bath) and we can't say enough good things about this hotel experience. Room was huge and clean, bed was comfortable, shower was hot with great water pressure. The employees at the front desk were super helpful with how to get places and local recommendations. The hostel is...
