- Mary Lussiana, Destination expert
Extremely well placed in the historic heart of downtown Lisbon, with the wonderful Time Out food market a 10-minute walk, and the majority of Lisbon attractions just steps away. The airport is a 30 minute ride by Aerobus, or 35 to 40 minutes by metro.
Style & character
Bright and breezy, with lots of yellow walls and a student atmosphere. Bean bags sit on wooden floors, sofas are bright red, the music is loud, the television blares, and a constant stream of people come and go.
Service & facilities
There is a laundry with washing powder for guests' use included and towels can be rented for €2 (£1.70), as can hairdryers for the same amount. There is a well equipped kitchen which guests can use to cook their meals.
There is also a book exchange, board games and a Playstation for entertainment. Activities such as tours of Sintra, a free walking tour or a pub crawl are frequently organised by the hostel.
There are 112 beds altogether, spread across four-, five- and six-bed dormitories. Two of the latter are female-only. Each floor has two bathrooms whilst some of the dormitories have en-suite bathrooms. Blonde wood floors and furniture, with lots of light through the French windows, make these rooms, bright and cheerful.
