“So much fun it's ridiculous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

The hostel is placed inside of the trainstation, which at first seemed a little strange, but turned out to be quite fine.
The staff makes an effort to make you feel at home.
Even though I rated the sleepquality as poor, it's not because of the rooms. It's because you are out partying so late every night, that you don't get any sleep while being there. It's just that much fun.
The accommodation is flawless, and I have no complaints what so ever. I am definitely coming back. It's just that much fun.
If I had to say something bad about the place, it would be the lack of brocode if you try and take a girl home with you. They seriously won't mind turning you away at 6am, because she doesn't stay at the hostel, saying: "rules are rules". And this was 2 young guys. It's cool though, go to the piers. It's beautiful with the sunrise and everything.

Room Tip: If you don't stay at a private room, bring earplugs or earmuffs. There's a good chance of sh...

Very Nice people, cool atmosphere, clean and cosy. I would certainly go back if i had enough money . It was really quiet for sleeping because i was afraid of the noises of the trains. Beautigul building.

The environment made me have one of the best experiences in hostels.
The staff is amazingly friendly. At the first moment they introduced me to the other guests were on the lobby and this whole thing make everyone willing to get to know each other, hang out, etc...
I spent just 2 nights, but at the very beginning I met some guys there who I spent the rest of the days, hanging out, drinking, walking around the city.
I highly recommend them.
The price is very ok and the structure is awesome. Good beds, sheets, shower, etc...
Besides this it's an interesting experience staying in a place just inside a train station.

I just completed a 3 nights stay at this hostel. Lovely staff that knows about Lisboa and surroundings. Very good beds and clean rooms. There are cleaning staff there every morning. Lots of activities, not a super party hostel. Pretty good for the price i paid. Im a solo traveler and i do those often. Definetely one of the best hostels i ever atayed at

Lisbon Destination Hostel ties for the best hostel we stayed at in Europe. We unfortunately only stayed here for 2 nights, I wish we could have stayed longer.

Why I liked it: It was clean, the staff was overwhelmingly friendly and helpful, it was tailored to travelers my age (college aged), the family dinner every night was great, it has a great central location, the internet is good, and they have bar crawls every night that are well worth their value! (definitely go on the bar crawl). The family dinner is also well worth it as an all you can eat buffet for 10 euro and the breakfast is great too. I loved this hostel so much and would absolutely stay there again considering how much we loved Lisbon. It was only my friend and I traveling together, but solo travelers would have no problem as well as bigger groups.

I can't recommend this hostel enough. Terrific value.

Room Tip: We got a 4 bed room for decent price and it was very nice.

The staff are super friendly, the pub crawls are really awesome, be prepared for an 'all-nighter', that's the Portuguese style. Really great kitchen facilities and they also have cheap evening meal available. Nice upright piano in common area, it was so fun.

Lisbon Destination Hostel is the perfect place to stay for travelers planning trips to Sintra. The hostel is located in Rossio station and trains to Sintra (which run about every 20 minutes) are within a few feet from the front door! Although the trains are so close by I never once noticed any noise. The hostel is also very central (within walking distance to Alfama, Bairro Alto, Chiada and the waterfront - we walked to Belem but would not recommend this on hot days as the walk isn't overly picturesque). The staff is very friendly and recommended excellent local restaurants and bars. When we stayed at the hostel there was a nice mix of young and old travelers and families. Great relaxed environment.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In July of 2011, smack in the heart of downtown Lisbon - Rossio - a new hostel is born. It could be just another hostel, except it's not. Housed in one of Lisbon's most beautiful and renowned buildings - the Rossio Railway Station - an undisputed icon of late XIX Century Romantic architecture (and which has recently undergone a profound facelift), Rossio Pátio Hostel is perched around a winter garden, where light filters down from the rooftop, harmoniously flooding the patio and creating an ambiance that is both tranquil and upbeat. We had planned on catering to a specific target, only to realize later that we didn't have to. We're confident that, between the ample first floor bedrooms (sleeping 4 to 6) with large windows overlooking the historic city, and the double rooms one floor up which peer out over the winter garden, you - whomever you may be - will find your niche. And if all this weren't enough, please note that, from our doorstep, you can take the train to the town of Sintra, a Unesco World Heritage Site just 20 minutes' ride away. Once you get there, you'll understand why. ... more   less
