The hostel was very nice upon arrival: a great welcoming by Jose, who explained us everything there is to see in the neighbourhood, and showed us places we would never see without his help. The rooms are quite basic, but nothing to complain about. The big issue with me was the fact that breakfast only started at 8h30, which caused... More

The hostel is on the 4th floor so you need to go up stairs each time you come in. there is no lift. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get into the central Rossio square area... More

This hostel style accommodation has double rooms with shared bath. It is situated on the 4th floor of a grand old Lisbon building. The staff were very friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. The one problem was the lack of curtains which meant that the early morning sunlight was a bit much. The price is incredibly cheap and this... More

The Refuge hostel is such a fantastic place to stay. It's very clean, nicely decorated, very ventilated with large rooms and windows. They serve a lovely breakfast every morning and the staff is very friendly! Its location is great, near metro and buses. Walk to the main tourist attractions. Also a nice little typical restaurant downstairs. Not expensive either.

Staff was the best: friendly and helpful! From this hostel you can reach everything within a few minutes by feet or by metro. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished, the bathrooms are being cleaned every day! The breakfast is great for a hostel: pancakes, french toast, cornflakes and more. We were totally happy and will absolutely come back if... More

The hostel is located close to the center and is within walking distance from the main attractions. The staff is very friendly and we spent quite a lot of time discussing about what should we visit and we received some very good tips about transportation, places to eat, etc. We had access to a complete kitchen, dining room and there...

Stayed for 3 nights with three other friends in a private room. The beds were comfortable and the decor was really cute. Everything felt very clean. Breakfast was simple (cereal and bread), but still tasty. Location was amazing (only a block from the metro, 15 minute walk to the main square).
