Robyn Huenemoerder thinks…

"This hostel was really a mixed bag for me. They have an okay location, right near the train station, you can order pizza and other foods, there is a nice garden"

Liked: The place is cheap! For 8 euros a night, you get a great breakfast, an adequate kitchen, a fairly comfortable bed, a decent common room, and the beds are made for you when you arrive. Most of the staff members are very nice, especially the one with the dreadlocks (I think his name is Fabio) - just a lovely, genuine, kind guy. He will always greet you with energy and ask how you are doing, etc. Good vibes when he is around!

Disliked: The showers are transparent, so everyone can see everything. Its a bit far from the center, but is located near Belem, which is a beautiful place as well. Its very easy to get to the center using bus 28 as well. There is only one computer for use, so sometimes you have to wait, which isnt a huge deal. Some of the staff members were a bit snarky and difficult - complaining about not liking their job, being a bit rude about how you spend your time, etc. But for the most part they are nice.

Liked: Simple, but fulfilled all of the requirements. Breakfast was great - there was yogurt, cereal and milk, breads, fruit, coffee, and tea - much more than you usually get at a hostel. Great value for the money.

Disliked: It's very centrally located for the Belem sights, but kind of far from downtown Lisbon.

Liked: I definitely recommend People Hostel! The hostel is amazingly decorated with really brilliant designs and the location is PERFECT! Its literally 10 minutes walking to the major attractions in Lisbon such as the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, Belem Tower and the Monument of discoveries. The staff is really friendly and helpful and they are willing to go extra miles to help you with anything. I lost my passport when I was in Lisbon and they helped me through a lot including calling the French embassy in Paris for free! The breakfast is a also amazing! They served bread, croissant, yogurts, cereals, fruits, coffee and tea and you can eat as much as you want. People Hostel is definitely a must-stay place!

Liked: Very friendly and helpful (bilingual staff). They even called a cab for me to take me to the airport. Everyone is super nice and the amenities are great. The breakfast is also a nice addition and I didn't expect it at the price. It's in a great neighborhood for some sightseeing.

Disliked: Although in a great neighborhood it is far from downtown Lisbon

Liked: What I'd liked the most about this hostel was the staff. They were super nice and willing to help people out! It was great!

Disliked: What I didn't like about this place was the bathroom stall's size and the size of the showers. It was very small. Also, I recommend that they put some cubbies so that you are able to place your belongings when taking a shower.

Liked: Superb staff, very cosy place, clean and the breakfast was best I've eaten in a hostel! Slightly cold at night but all the beds had lots of blankets and stuff. Close to the sights but you have to take the tram to Barrio Alto, for instance, where all the bars are. All in all definitely worth the 6e we payed for one night.
