The hostel is without a doubt one of the best hostel in Lisbon. It's located very near to the city centre. There are 2 metro stations near the hostel, Rossio and Baixa/Chiado. The staffs are very helpful, standard breakfast. The rooms are very clean. Each bed has curtain, so we can have some privacy. There is a locker in each... More

The Golden Tram 242 Hostel was among the best hostels I stayed in while traveling Europe. The staff was very accommodating and let us put our bags in a storage room when we arrived so that we could explore the city that morning before check-in. My friends and I took one of the "free" (tip recommended) walking tours provided by... More

We have chosen this hostel because of so many good reviews, but we forgot who is writing these reviews! Most probably very young travellers, who are usually sleeping in hostels. For a hostel is Golden Tram probabaly really above the avarage, but if you are usually sleeping in decent hotels, than forget this option. it is certainly worth giving 20... More

I really liked this Hostel. Wi-fi always worked, staff was really nice and was able to give some advices about what to do. Food was also nice, even thought we were a group of almost 40 people. There are only a pair of toilets (one for boys and one for girls) in every floor (almost 30 people), so take it... More

Central position, very closed to Airport connection bus. We stayed in a 2 person room: it was nice, clean, and comfortable... absolutely recommendable! Staff was very kind, smiling and efficient and available 24H/day.

We were in a 10 Bedroom. You have something like your own cab. With a curtain. The only bad thing we've got, was a stinky feet person in our room. And there was only one window. But without this misstake there is nothing to expect. Everything was good. The living room is nice but not quiet. There is a lift,... More

Had a bit of poor luck. We stayed in a 2 person room. The elevator(tourist attraction) across the street was under construction. The room was nice, but impossible to sleep with the window open as the construction across the street was a bit noisy. Location was awesome. Few blocks away from a subway station. Few blocks away from many tram... More

My mom and I travelled to Portugal in the month of august 2014. We were first staying in the surfing beach town Ericeria, and booked the GoldenTram Hostel online from http://www.hostelbookers.com. We read the reviews, they were so positive that we thought we had made the right choice to booking their hostel in Lisbon. And I’m happy to say, that... More

And I just wouldn't say it is because nothing is perfect, anyway... It was the best hostel I've booked ever! Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice breakfast and a vibrant atmosphere in the lounge bar :) I would recommend this hostels for everyone who wants to visit the Lisbon city and enjoy a comfortable (and cheap) stay!
