Located in the most characteristic of Lisbon’s neighborhoods, among winding streets and small cobbled squares, is Alfama Patio (APH): a traditional house, where the living room and kitchen extend onto a grassy garden patio, with greenery climbing the walls and flowers spilling out over their pots. A few steps up, a deck terrace overlook red-roofed buildings and the Tagus River, lying beneath Lisbon's trademark golden sunlight. Read more

About Alfama Patio Hostel

Low Season Special
Special condition applies, ask more information by email.
Patio hostels, with Patios that you can use all year long
The patio – the heart of the house which, undoubtedly, contributed to the hostel’s international “Best Atmosphere” award - is where it all happens: a delicious pancake breakfast every morning, a BBQ and DJ on Fridays, film night on Mondays and a Latin fiesta on Wednesdays. It’s in this setting, at once upbeat and laid-back, that nationalities intermingle and friendships are made.

But to discover the city, you must venture out beyond the front gate. Regular group outings lead you to some of the best of what Lisbon has to offer – a Brazilian music and dance party held locally on Tuesdays, an evening of live Portuguese fado music on Thursdays, and bar-hopping into the night in the Bairro Alto neighborhood on Fridays.

Some of Lisbon’s most popular monuments are barely past the Hostel’s doorstep, and others just a ride away on one of the city’s yellow Eléctricos (riding in one of these trams is a must-do for any visitor anyway). And because there’s a lot worth a seeing outside Lisbon, groups of 5 or more can hop on the hostel’s own van and be shuttled to nearby Cascais and Sintra or to one of several magnificent beaches close by.

If after all this you’re still undecided, then it may help to know that APH has won successive “Best Staff” awards. When you arrive and are welcomed with open arms, you’ll understand why.

Please note that from the 1st of January 2016 a city tax of EUR 1 per person, per night is not included in the total price and should be paid on site. This tax is charged to guests aged 13 and older. It is subject to a maximum amount of EUR 7 per guest.

Dear guest, if you will be staying with us on New Year's Eve (31/12/15), then the following information is for you. We want to share with all our guests some great moments, so we are organizing an awesome party between our 3 hostels in Lisbon. To ensure a great atmosphere, we are looking to have as many guests as possible, so if you are staying this night, it is mandatory to buy the party entrance. It is sold at 10€ per person that will be paid at check in, (includes 1 free beer and champagne at midnight). Also we will have an option of party & dinner. In this case the cost is 30€, but if you sign up in advance it is only 25€. Please contact reception to reserve your spot. We have a limit of 70 people for the dinner. Dinner starts at 20.30h (includes 2 main courses, drink & dessert) and party starts from 22h until 4 am with a DJ. The fireworks will be seen from our exclusive terrace overlooking the river.

Accommodation Information

In our hostel we have shared dormitories with 4 and 6 beds and shared bathroom. We have one six bed dorm with private bathroom and female only. As well we have two double rooms with shared bathroom, but with balcony and very nice view to the river and Alfama district and one luxury double room with bathroom, living room and rest room. Our rooms are very sunny and most of them have balconies. Girls don’t worry! Mirror in every room! Small lights and box for your small personal stuff available for every bed. Our rooms are mostly decorated in eclectic style - here modern things meet antique ones and give them new life.

Location Information

Some of the most visited monuments are at walking distance: Lisbon Castle, Se Cathedral, National Pantheon, S. Vicente Fora Monastery and many more.

Even today, as in the past, white clothes hang at the windows to dry, colorful flowers sit on ledges and legendary yellow trams wind their way up Lisbon's narrow streets.

Our hostel has a private grass courtyard with barbecue and hammocks, and a terrace with stunning views over the Alfama district, the Tagus River and the S. Vicente de Fora Church and Monastery.

We have a very familiar atmosphere and we are friendly. You will immediately feel like home.

We will help you plan your stay and guide you through the city’s hot spots. You will not miss the best that Lisbon offers.

Alfama Patio Hostel is definitely the right place for you!

Though we like to have fun, we are not mainly a party hostel (even if we are having our world famous barbecue party every Friday). Our aim is to provide a quiet and relaxed atmosphere in the hostel, so if you’d like to party after midnight, it is possible to go to the clubs and bars nearby.
