“The best value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is probably the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Firstly the location, you stay in a beautiful train station building right in the city centre of Lisbon, so everything is within a walking distance. The staff is extremely nice and helpful, the rooms are spacious and clean and hostel lounge is a great place to chill out. At last the breakfast, you can get hot pancakes, eggs, there is also fruit and vegetable, free coffee and tea all the day long. As for Lisbon hostels, I really have to recommend this one.

The hostel is very well located with all the main sites close by. The staff is friendly. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, the only thing is that they do not have air conditioning only a fan so the room was a bit too hot even with the window open. The breakfast was good, it consisted of juice, coffee; tea, cereals and the cook would prepare pancakes or eggs with toast (your choice). The only thing missing to make it a great breakfast was fruit. I would probably stay there again.

We loved Rossio Hostel and would stay there again in a heartbeat! During our trip we stayed in both a private room (which was honestly a suite, so huge!) and in the dorms. The staff are extremely helpful, the rooms are clean and beautiful and the breakfast (included in the price) is delicious! The location is phenomenal and I can't wait to head back to Rossio and beautiful Lisbon sometime soon!

Room Tip: It's an older building with character in the heart of the city, so it is a bit loud at night. I...

I have stayed in a lot of hostels. currently been travelling for over 2 months and before that have travelled for months at a time. But Rossio hostel is the best place i have ever stayed in. The rooms are so spacious, bed are so comfortable, showers and bathroom the best! Breakfast is amazing,.fresh eggs and pancakes cooked for you! Great kitchen to use for yourself too. and the best part is the staff, who are just so awesome and welcoming! Was so sad to leave..you have to stay to here when in Lisbon.

This hotel is a little bit difficult to find, but it is a great value to budget travelers. The staff is helpful and friendly. A lovely lady is in charge of the breakfast and cook for you, great! This place is also clean.

Amazing hostel - the staff makes you feel lik youre a part of the city which itself is amazing. Our room was one of the best in the hostel and i have to add I have never had a view like that! Next to the beautiful Rossio square, the Rossio hostel is everything you need to feel good. Supermarket 0,5 min walk, great restaurants and pastries right around the corner and fine dining 1 min walk, not to mention the railway station which is like 2 minutes from the hostel. The staff is very helpful and well organized - everything you need, they know where it is or how to get it! The hostel is very clean and has all the things you will need. GREAT PANCAKES AND EGGS IN THE MORNING AND YOU WONT EVEN HAVE TO MAKE THEM YOURSELF, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!We are sending our sincere best regards to Marco and the staff and we hope to be back soon!

Room Tip: Ask for the last floor

We stayed two nights at the start of our trip to Portugal. Staff at Rossio were really helpful, friendly and laid back. Location is good and rooms are cosy. We arrived without reservation so there was little bit hazzle with cleaning up but that didn't bother us. Overall nice place and I can definitely recommend this one!
