The location of this hostel is just perfect if you are coming from the airport. It is near the city center and close to the train station if you wish to do a day trip nearby. The hostel rooms are fine, the beds are really confy...the only thing is that they should have at least one more bathroom since sometimes... More

All of the three workers I got to know were friendly and funny and made you feel right at home. The place itself looked awesome and modern, and it was incredibly close to the main city, bus stations, train stations and barrio alto. Perfect location and perfect homely vibe.

That's an amazing created hostel in the city of Lisbon with really great staff! They have trendy beds and furniture, nice sitting and living areas and a really sweet kitchen. Only the toilet & bathroom is a little bit small.

We followed TripAdvisor's reviews and booked a room AND we were not disappointed! Firstly, it is easy to get to the Hostel. It is very nicely located, close to train, boat and tram stops. Walking distance from main attractions, bars and restaurants. Very nice and welcoming staff. We had a double room and it looked exactly like on the photos... More

Booked this after reading the fab reviews and wasn't disappointed. Not being a seasoned 'hosteller' wasn't sure but the staff, in particular JP were so lovely you felt like you were staying with friends. We had the private room with en suite and it was spotless, as was the whole place. The location is as perfect as you could get... More

Lisbon calling is one of the most homely hostels I have stayed in. As soon as you arrive the place is relaxed and you feel at home. This is definitely not a party hostel which makes a nice change. It also has a hippy type feel to the place. The only downside is that it can be hard to find.... More

We opted for the private room with its own shower. Great retro furniture and and drencher shower. Really great position for bars and tourist attractions. Only stayed one night but would def book in for longer. Great staff, all ultra friendly and their local knowledge is second to none.

By friendly I mean friendly. The hostel is owned by two girls and is run by a group of friends who all share a common interest to make you feel welcome and at home. I arrived on a quiet Monday after a busy weekend so they put me up in a dorm room of my own so that the few... More

I have to confess that I was rather suspicious of hostels. But after reading excellent reviews of hostels in Lisbon, I decided to give it a try. And keep in mind that my husband and I do not fit the category of relaxed young backpackers. Lisbon Calling came as a charming first experience for us. We loved it from check... More
