The hostel has a nice patio and free wifi. The bunk beds have a modern design made of recycled wood. Unfortunately the shower and the toilet are very small, and in the main entrance. If you need a confortable shower could not be your choice

Stayed there for 5 nights. It's a small place but it adds to its charm. The staff is very firendly. Breakfast is pretty good. It is located in the middle of Alfama district, an old cosy part of Lisbon. I can say that if I'm in Lisbon again, that's where I'll stay.

I have nothing bad to say about this place! Visited alone in early July 2015. The place is clean, they have a great vibe. They have tons of activities that you can arrange right from the hostel (walking tour, street art tour, pub crawl, surfing lesson...) which makes the planning that much easier. They also have dinners and barbecues, delicious... More

The hostel is located with a beautiful terrace overlooking the Lisbon river. The is the perfect setting for a nice breakfast in the old town of Lisbon. Furthermore the hostel has a great staff who is always providing good service and an amazing atmosphere.

Only stayed for one night when the Sunset Destination Hostel was full, but really enjoyed it. The hostel is located in the heart of the old town. On the tram line with lots of beautiful old churches to look at. Staff were friendly and helpful and the people who stayed there were really nice too.

We really like staying in this lovely hostel! We like the out door area and the cosy terrace with an awesome view and also the daily pancake breakfast. The room was great and the view from our room was awesome, too!

We had such an amazing time at Alfama Patio Hostel. People who work there are so kind and welcoming. It's very clean and warm. This place is so adorable with its pink walls and all those flowers, needless to say that the view (on the terrace) over Lisbon and the Tagus is stunning

...and for those young at heart. Very serviceminded and friendly staff. Small rooms with an oldstyle and youthlike charm and energy combined in them. Great outdoor areas for contemplation or sosializing.

Such a great place. I would highly recommend this if you're looking to check out Old Alfama and the Castle. It's in a super historic part of town and everything is crooked and confusing, but all in all gorgeous and super ethnic. I loved my stay there!

Then this little jewelry of a hostel in the heart of Lisbon is the right place for you ! Alfama is the oldest part of Lisbon, small romantic streets, cozy cafes and the color of the houses in combination with non ending landscapes of flowers will enchant your spirits.
