I've been host in this structure from 16 to 20 of August. Excellent position, kindness of clerks. Possibly to improve stairs/rooms since they're not so new. Anyway they seemed to be quite clean. The only thing that I didn't like was that in our balcony clean laundry and sheets of the hostal were hang out without telling us anything. Anyway... More

The Downtown Guesthouse really offers bang for the buck. The location couldn't be better, within walking distance of all the main attractions in the old town. The airport bus stops around the corner and the tram lines and metro are within minutes of walking. Also, cheap restaurants and cafes are just a few streets away. Staff is very helpful and... More

We stayed two nights in this guest house on our Portugal trip. The rooms we had (305 & 306 if I remember correctly) were your average guest house quality probably from IKEA. The room also included a small TV and a safe. However the safe wasn't bolted to the wall so you could've just picked it up and carried it... More

This place was just filthy. The floor was dirty, the sheets were stained, the bedding was heavily stained, and the shower was full of mold and mildew (see pictures). It also took 30 minutes to check in because the guy working kept stopping to do other things. I asked for restaurant recommendations and was told to go to any restaurant... More

Hotel is located right in the heart of Lisbon, walking distance from subway, bus and metro station. Within walking distances of several landmarks. You get what you pay, they do have the option of own toilet.

We booked our stay for 7 nights. On arrival the staff was very friendly and the room seemed very clean. in the first morning several mosquito-like bites appeared on the skin. On four consecutive days the severity of the bites increased and made me awake early in the morning 5-7 bites per night), my partner had only few bites during... More

Upon arrival we first were a bit sceptical, as the entry area looks quite shabby. But once you're inside, everything looks nice and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We booked a double room and were positively surprised by the size and style of the room. The room looked, and was furnished, to the standard of a mid-priced hotel,... More

We stayed here three nights on our trip to Lisbon. The hostel is situated right next to Rossio square; this means you have all the interesting areas of the town within walking distance. Perfect for a long weekend exploring Lisbon by foot. Staff members were very nice and welcoming and all spoke english. They answered all our questions and gave... More

Great stay. Everything in the guesthouse is new, the rooms are clean and there is lots of light, my room had a shared bathroom with a new shower cabin and a good hot shower, shower cleanliness was ok. Sleep quality was good, the street outside is not too noisy at night even if you choose to open the windows, and... More

My friend booked this hotel for us and I was a little sceptical when it turned out to be a hostel as I've had bad experiences before in super budget accommodation. However, I could not have been more wrong. The hotel is ideally situated in the Rosia district close to a number of pretty squares and restaurants, and not far... More
