- Mary Lussiana, Destination expert
Very central, in a narrow street near the capital’s main artery, Avenida da Liberdade, which is lined with designer shops An easy 20-minute walk will take you down to the waterfront and the historic heart of Lisbon. The airport is a 15-minute taxi ride away, or 30 minutes by Aerobus.
Style & character
Warm and welcoming, with a friendly atmosphere and clean rooms. Whilst this is not the type of hostel where travellers hang out and party, not having a shared public area apart from the kitchen, it nevertheless provides everything you need.
Service & facilities
Facilities are limited, especially compared to some of Lisbon’s other hostels which will often run outings and serve meals. Service is friendly and helpful. There is a pretty private terrace and a shared kitchen that residents can use to cook their meals.
There are five bedrooms in total: one with two bunk beds; the rest with four (one of the latter is female-only). Floors are wooden, views from the pretty wrought-iron balconies are onto the street, and there are free lockers provided for storage. There are two bathrooms to share between the five rooms (proper bathrooms, as opposed to rooms with shower and lavatory cubicles). Towels can be rented for €2 (£1.70).
