Hostel super cosy, amazing sight from the terras on the roof over the Old City Centre. Within walking distance you've got various look-out points overlooking Lisbon -... More

You can use any and all of their facilities (wifi, restroom, even breakfast!) anytime. Wifi is free and it covers the entire hostel, but somehow, for us,... More

A charming and a beautiful hostel with friendly staff. Stayed in a mixed 6bed dorm and had a nice quiet sleep, even though the room was full. Great location and delicious breakfast. Would recommend to everyone!

Once again the staff was very... More

This exceeded our expectations of a hostel, we had a wonderful weekend stay in a nice area of Lisbon. The staff were friendly and helpful. room had all we needed. Shared shower but... More

The staffs are very friendly, and the room (I stayed single room) was awsome! From my room, I could see the typical housings of Alfama with red roofs and ocean view!!! Also, the tour they offer was also good. I only joined one of tours where we could listen to Fado. The guide took the guests to the restaurant that... More

The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the patio makes for a perfect place to meet other travelers and find people to enjoy Lisbon with. When I was there they had a great BBQ with lots of choices for... More

The Alfama Patio Hostel was much more than I expected from regular hostel and the money paid. Great atmosphere, hosts were very friendly and always ready to help. The bed and shower were clean, breakfast was good, freshly baked pancakes added more home feeling to the entire stay. Not to mention all the activities they have going on inside and... More
