Liked: Hostel is probably the best hostel where I was staying in more than 20 countries I have visited so far. Friendliness of staff and communicate in several languages ​​(English, French, Portuguese, Serbo-Croatian, Macedonian) is something I am very thrilled. The view from the balcony of the hostel at the core of the city is amazing and gives you a moment of inspiration while you drink your morning coffee.

Disliked: Although breakfast is solid and extensive, I suggest that they should add some meat option to breakfast offer.

Liked: Is on the city center but off the beaten path of Baixa and Chiado that can be annoying.

Disliked: Stairs... i dont care bc is exercise but travelling with someone that does not like to walk or too old, going up the hill can be tiring. Anyway theres a new public elevator that is free and open most of the day.

Liked: Clean, cosy, nice balcony, excellent room lay out, good breakfast, good walking tours, fantastic terrace, clean bathrooms

Disliked: Showers have a button which needs to be held in constantly. Buzzer to get inside the hostel was right outside the room window and was noisy all night. But otherwise a fantastic stay.

Liked: Location, terrace, view, facilities, free walking tour, recommendations for night life,... The terrace makes you want to stay there the entire day and I met some cool travelers from around the world. Staff was superhelpful and Catarina was a cool guide!

Disliked: Showers go like this: cold water for the first couple of button-presses, then lukewarm for the next 12 seconds, then super hot forever. And there's nothing you can do about it.

Liked: -Short walks to most of Lisbon's sights and attractions. 5 easy minutes walk to Supermarket. -Beautifully located in the old part of Lisbon on a quiet street. -Large social, chilled terrace with amazing views over the old part of town. -Affordable prices with free breakfast foods and drinks. -Very clean, with lots of facilities to the ratio of people. Such as power points, showers, toilets cooking utensils etc. -Well stocked kitchen with everything you could need for cooking. -Friendly and helpful staff, with a real homely feel to it, which is nice when travelling around Europe! Also- - €10-15 for a taxi from Oriente train/bus station. - 5 minutes walk to Santa Apolina station - 10 minutes walk to Rossio station for day trips to Sintra etc - Tram stops about 2 minutes walk from Hostel. All in all a great hostel, with everything you need. Would recommend a stay here any day. P.s The walk up to the Hostel is not that bad, it's short and reasonably gradual. The other people complaining about it in their reviews should either hit the treadmill or don't go to a city that's built on hills!

Disliked: Anna left no negative feedback.

Liked: Such a nice place with such helpful staff. There is a lovely terrace with a great view. They do this thing where you pay, I think it was 7 euros, and if there are enough people (5ish minimum) they cook you an all you can eat traditional Portuguese dinner! Was by far the best part! Also had free walking tours

Disliked: nothing!

Liked: Fantastic staff, very knowledgable and friendly. Lots of information available re tourist attractions and tours (ie walking tour, sintra tour) which can be booked at the hostel. Nice and clean rooms and bathroom. Yummy bread and jam at breakfast. Great kitchen and lovely free tea provided. The free walking tour was brilliant, highly recommended! Great location, walking distance to most attractions (be ready for lots of hills and cobbles all over Lisbon!) Really brilliant hostel, would definately recommend!

Disliked: That there weren't more people staying there as there were never enough people for the hostel made dinners to go ahead (7 euro with a glass of wine). Beds were a tad bit hard (noticed this after long days of walking!) Also it is cheaper to head out to Sintra independently (half the price than what the hostel offers).

Liked: This is Lisbon hostel is one of the best hostel's I've stayed in so far! It's in a great location, only a 5 minute walk to the supermarket and the castle, 10 minutes down to the Se and waterfront. Although make sure to follow the hostel's directions or you'll end up going up a ton of steps to get there as its on a hill. Everything in the hostel is nice and new and squeaky clean. The room we stayed it opened up to the terrace which had incredible views. The room was nice and spacious with huge ceilings and big windows to let the morning light in. There was a huge locked storage area under the bed to put all your stuff, which was great. Breakfast was included and filling- bread, several cereals, EGGS! oj and milk. The staff were super friendly and helpful as well. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: The place was great, the staff are fantastic and the kitchen facilities are awesome. The breakfast was delicious and you get to sit on the big porch and watch the city whenever you like. Our 8 bed dorm was divided into 2 rooms which was helpful and decent lockers for everyone. Overall I recommend staying here!

Disliked: It was a bit of a hike to get to with luggage, however the view was worth it when you get there. There was no aircon or fan so you had to keep the window open at night for fresh air which let noise in. The shower you lasted 15 seconds before you had to turn the tap on again and again.

Liked: The staff (Simona and Dani) were 2 of the nicest hostel workers I´ve encountered in many years of hostel stays. The terrace was also a highlight - morning breakfast overlooking Lisbon is THE reason to book here,

Disliked: Nothing really. I guess they could have put on more night/day events for guests at the hostel (the evening dinner was the only thing that stood out).
