The staff was very friendly and the rooms where quite fine, especially beds. Poor installations regarding showers and WC. Good breakfast. The best was the location, it is in the very middle of the city. Well connected too.

I stayed here 3 nights, the hostel is located right downtown and you can walk to main touristic areas like the Praça do Comércio or the Castle of São Jorge. I don't normally stay in hostels because there's no privacy and there's usually young travellers who will not let you sleep because they're being noisy or just don't care about... More

This hostel was amazing value for money. Easy to find, great location. And it looks just like the photos...only it is even more comfortable. The curtains effectively block out light so you can sleep like a log. The beds (and pillow) are better than some 5-star hotels, spacious and with nice soft duvets. The only issue on the second floor... More

An excellent place to stay. Innovative with curtains for each bed that make you keep your privacy. Good food. Placed in the heart of the city with wonderful hosts! You`ve got to experience it by yourself.

The nice lady at the reception was really nice and helpful. I really needed urgent help with tickets and she sorted it out for me. I cannot thank her enough! The hotel is well located, close to all the major attractions and transportation.( which you probably won't even need because everything is accessible on foot).

I was hobbling back to Lisboa from the Caminho, and needed a safe place to recoop. This fantastic hostel not only had wonderful hosts, but food on the first floor and an elevator! One of those cool birdcage elevators from the 20s that actually worked. The beds make you feel like you are in a train sleeping car, or a... More

The location is almost perfect,opposite of Santa Justa Lift.The staff is very helpful.The only problem was noisy just outside of the hostel at week-end night.Some people sang a song and chatting so loudly at the night and I couldn't sleep well.

Privacy curtains and bed set up really nice. Can't beat the location!! Walking distance to all central attractions and metro. Bathrooms very nice. My room faced the street and was very noisy, but I'm prepared with earplugs being a frequent hosteler! Highly recommend

We stayed for two days (1 night) in the golden tram hostel in Lisboa, because of the UEFA Europa league match between Benfica and AZ Alkmaar. The hostel is very easy to reach. Take from Lisboa AirPort terminal 1, the red Subway line and switch trains at Alameda and then take the green line to Ciado. A 24 hour ticket... More

Hi, we went on a trip from Cádiz to Lisbon and stayed in this Hostel. It was so so so much better than we expected. The location is perfect and the beds are interesting. In a good way. I loved them, you can even have sex in a room where 8 people are sleeping. There is a curtain for every... More
