Due to a booking disaster, I ended up at this hostel. Note that I am not a person that normally stays at hostels, but needed somewhere to stay urgently. The best mistake ever. I was greeted warmly and made to feel comfortable immediately, was checked in flawlessly and given excellent advice regarding my other booking. My room was clean and... More

first, the reception Lourdes is very lovely, location is good, but you need to take the tram up hill because the short cut to the metro is very steep , otherwise, walking to the metro is around 8 min. 12 min to rossio train station, which I have been to on the way to Sintra. The downside is that there... More

Frack me, what a good time! Check out at noon, lovely bathrooms, room with a balcony, right next to the Barrio Alto, air con in the rooms, great staff (thanks Alexandra!!). The only way it would have been better is if my wife didn't cheat on me with a Lisbon policeman while I was passed out.

Excellent location up the hill of Bairro Alto. Very friendly and helfpul staff. Breakfast was good (quite big rolls :-) ). Double room was quite small, not that much space, but it was okay. You have to climb up some creaky stairs (doesn't mean they make a lot of noise!), I liked this athmosphere a lot! There is this narrow... More

B.A Hostel is a very great deal. I stayed in a 4-beds female room for a weekend and it was just what I was looking for: low price but not cheap service. You have everything you need to spend the night and a good breakfast to wake up. Lourdes, the receptionist during the day, is really friendly and helpful. You... More

Having been in a few hostels, I was really impressed with this one in terms of value for money, friendly service and cleanliness. We had a great time in Lisbon and enjoyed our few days at BA Hostel. Hostel staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.

The area is really nice, right in the centre of the city. The staff is very helpful. I was with friends, in a room with four beds, it was so small, no space for anything, a bit suffocating! The bathrooms are shared, but quite big. Just it wasn't possible to close the doors, not so cool when it's not your... More
