I arrived at the hostel quite late in the evening, exhausted after a full days' drive the staff were super friendly and hospitable. They gave me a quick tour of the hostel and took my backpack up to my dorm bed. The bed was really comfortable and was located near a window which had an adorable view of the city.... More

This is my third time at Alfama Patio Hostel and it will not be my last. To knock the door (or ring the bell) and entrance into the patio is like to come home. Friendly atmosphere! The staff spreds the welcomening spirit to the guests soo it´s very easy to get in touch with the other guests!

The Alfama Patio Hostel was the perfect place to stay in Lisbon! Situated in the winding hilltop streets of Alfama it is the perfect location from which to explore Lisbon, with several shops, restaurants and pastries situated quite near. The staff there were wonderfully friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were delicious. I also had dinner there one night, three... More

Thank you also for your precision about the difficult access to the facilities in the Alfama for people with reduced mobility, we do advice our guest to stay on the Rossio one, which is perfectly adapted. About the luggage our receptionists will be happy to give you a hand after presenting you... More

Best decision I made. It was my first solo trip, and my boyfriend recommended it to me. I stayed in the 6 person girls dorm with ensuite bathroom. The bunkbeds are cute and custom made for the hostel, and have curtains in front of the bed area for privacy. You are provided with a drawer that can be locked with... More

You can't beat this place for location or price. The breakfast is amazing. The bunk beds in the dorms offer a certain amount of privacy with curtains and wall divisions which is good. The location is lovely.

...and believe me, I've traveled a lot! Having breakfast with fresh pancakes while sitting on a terrace overlooking the roofs of Lisbon's old town and a view that streches over the river to the other shore side - I could have spended a full week just sitting there. All the hostel with it's garden, terrace, kitchen, common room and dorms... More
