I slept in the girls dorm, and had a great experience. Th staff is wonderful, the pancakes breakfast is tasty, and the rooftop has a great view. The pipes make quite a lot of noise, but I didn't really mind. It's a great place to come back to at the end of the day, bout 15 mins from the center,... More

Perfect set up - like walking to a living room. You almost don't want to go out - so comfy. A hammock in the back garden (!!!!) Perfect location in an old town, cute streets and a lot to see. Super friendly staff and nice events every night.

this is the great hostel experience I've ever had. It is easy to get here, you can take Tram 28 or even walk from city center. The receptionist was soooo nice to advice me the information in Lisbon. The atmosphere is also nice. You have coffee,tea, waffle and bread as breakfast. Everything was so good, I really enjoy staying here.... More

Alfama Patio Hostel stands out with its relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and superb location. From the splendid view over Alfama to the homemade pancakes at breakfast, everything about the place is welcoming, easygoing and thoroughly enjoyable. There are organized tours around town that start from the hostel (including street art tour, bike routes, etc.) and the bracelet you're given once... More

cozy hostel, friendly staff, very clean comparing with other hostels I've visited, the old tram going in the old city was just below our window (and rather loud in the mornings); charming neighborhood and nice view from the hostel's terrace

Located in a nice neighbourhood with easy access to the city center. Great terrace and patio. Facilities are old and a bit run down but everything is very clean and works! Staff is helpful and friendly. Good value for money.

Easy to get to from the metro with clear instructions. Greeted warmly by staff and they were VERY helpful. Helped planned our travel route as there are lots of places that we want to cover in just 4 days. Breakfast was amazing. Amazing view at the rooftop though can be quite chilly. Would definitely recommend this to others!
