This hostel is one of my favourite! The team members are very cool and helpful for everything, about where to visit and eat ! They got an awesome view of Lisbon! It's located next to Castelo de Sao Jorge. I stayed with my friend in the biggest room with access to the terrace! It was very enjoyable to wake up... More

I already spent a few days in Lisbon before checking-in at This is Lisbon hostel, and I love how it is located within the Alfama district of Lisbon. However I wouldn't recommend staying in this hostel if you have a luggage because of the VERY rugged stone pavements in the area as well as the stairs! I was on budget... More

It's hard to beat the location of This is Lisbon Hostel - which isn't just perched on a gorgeous cobble stoned street in the city's old quarter, but has a stunning view over the city too. The terrace alone makes this hostel stand out from the big crowd but it's also set out perfectly with a cosy and comfortable living... More

This hostel was okay overall. It has an amazing terrace with great views. We stayed in a 4 bed room which was very dark and quite noisy with the windows being at foot level out onto the street due to the hilly nature of the town. I realise that's not their fault but a point worth mentioning. The showers didn't... More

The staff is super friendly and helpful, everything is clean and the beds and sheets are really comfy. The breakfast is varied and FREE! and the leftover bread... More

We had been to This Is Lisbon 2 years ago and when a flight delay meant we had to stay over in Lisbon we had no problem deciding where to stay. This is Lisbon appeared to be brand new when we arrived the first time and I wondered whether it might look less bright and sparkling as it had done.... More

After a crapy experience in and Hostel in Porto, we couldnt be more happy to find this amazing place in Lisbon. Excelente location near the castle and perfect to visit the old part of the town. Great team and very attentive. Strongly advisable.

It has hostel prices, but it's like being in a hotel. All the staff I was lucky to meet was super friendly and helpful with everything I could need. It is next to one of the most beautiful Lisbon places, Alfama and the Castle. And, If Lisbon is the city of seven hills because of its viewpoints, this hostel should... More
