If you search a place with great location, low prices, WiFi, good breakfast, secured room, this is the place to go. All the center cn me make without underground. The common bathrooms are really small but either all was pleasant, the staff is friendly days and nights, I would return if I have the occasion !

The place is great. Clean, safe and friendly. You can not do better for the price as well as having a more intimate and authentic experience of Lisbon. The staff was amazing and very friendly, as well as providing plenty of opportunities to show one around the city.

The best thing is a number of tours and activities you can join - city walking tours, a tour to the beatiful place - Sintra, BBQ party and even more! The terrace is amazing even in the winter and is a wonderful place for breakfast. Friendly staff, cosy atmosphere, perfect location and a very nice price!

The hostel looks amazing - it is in the pictoresque Alfama center and the interior design is very authentic. The staff are really polite, helpful and friendly and l love the morning hot pancakes and sliced served to us. One of the best breakfasts l had in hostels so far. (if we don't count the big generic no-soul hostels) Also,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at alfama hostel. Location is in historical old part of Lisbon. 10 15 minutes walk to downtown if you are lazy take funicular up hill. Place is really cozy and feels like home. Pancakes in morning and every night dinner and wine for 9€. Good experience.

Excellent hostel in the heart of Alfama, only 5-10 minutes walk to most attractions in this area. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, with a 24 hour reception. There are activities to keep you busy every day including a free walking tour (works on tips), a Friday bbq, pool party at another hostel and much more. All of the... More

Great location, very friendly and helpful staff, good price, clean room and common bathrooms, pretty and comfortable outdoors common areas, beautiful view from room. I didn't try the breakfast, and only stayed one night. The guided tours they offer seemed interesting, but I didn't have time to try one.

We booked a private room which was small but comfy. The staff is always very helpful. Good variety of food and amazing pancakes at breakfast. Great chilled out atmosphere. Very good location near trams and Santa apolonia train station. We met some great people there.

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighborhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
