Excellent location, really nice staff, clean rooms/bathrooms and enough bathrooms so that we never had to queue. Hostel is located really close to the Lisbon nightlife, so if you are sensitive to noise, take some ear plugs with you. :)

We booked this hostel for the location which you really can't beat. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean if not a little sparse. The walls are so thin though! We could hear the other people on our floor very easily, especially considering there were families with children staying on our floor..I was not expecting that from... More

Location is great, easy to get everywhere in the city. Nice and helpful staff. Clean bathrooms. Noisiest hostel we've ever visited! And i'm not usually that picky. The room 420 on the top floor corner is upstairs from erasmus bar and a small nightclub. We stayed a week and only Sunday was a bit quieter. Every other night the music... More

Stayed here for two nights with my friend. It was our first time to Lisbon. Really glad we stayed in this area as it was very easy to get around and we were right in the action. We were able to walk down to the centre of the city and get to the metro, shopping area and trams . We... More

We have spent 3 nights at the B.A Hostel, People are really nice, it is well located :) The only "bad" thing is that it is quite noisy by night (because there are a lot of bars around), but except that it is perfect!!!

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
