Our stay at Johnie's Place was excellent! The location was great - only 5 minutes from the castle - and the 6 bed dorm we were in was perfect for a city break as we were out all day! But it was the friendly staff and the relaxed atmosphere which really made our stay so special. The living room and... More

We stayed 3 nights at Johnie's Place with my boyfriend and I have to say that the hostel is perfectly located. Alfama is the oldest part of Lisbon where you can really see the real Portugese lifestyle. Furthermore 1 minutes from our accomodation can be found one of the most amazing view spots and sunset spot as it is situated... More

We had a double room with shared bathroom, the room was bright with shutters no noise from the street. Breakfast was good, bread ham/cheese cereal. Really good value and lovely viewpoint with bar across square. About 20 min walk to rossio station.

Upon first impression Johnies Place seemed to be a charming, cozy hostel with a friendly and helpful host, however after settling in for the first night of the stay we soon saw a different side to it. From staff members constantly hovering over your actions to the never ending and constantly increasing list of rules and policies which the host... More

A truly regrettable experience Distrusting, rude and erratic, the hostel owner goes out of her way to make her guests feel like criminals. Incredibly strict rules, which are not explained upon arrival, are enforced by the staff, who seem to outnumber the guests, who hover and survey their actions. Watching a TV show from a laptop after midnight in the... More

We had probably the most beautiful room of the hostal, ancient doors frame and old azulejos on the wall, clean and quiet. Nice staff. The position of the hostel is strategic 50 mt from the Graca miradouro. Good choice.

The staff were very pleasant and easy to deal with. Value for money was there for a private room in a hostel. The room was tidy and well kept. Everything worked and the wifi was reasonable. We really enjoyed our stay!

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighborhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Johnies Place you will experience more than just staying at a hostel. Located in Graça one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Lisbon, and inside a unique and exquisite palace from the 17th century, we'll make all the efforts so that you can feel yourself at home in this cosy hostel. It's at walking distance to many interesting spots of Lisbon, like São Jorge Castle, Feira da Ladra (flea-market), three of the greatest viewpoints of the city : Miradouro da Graça, Senhora do Monte and Santa Luzia, etc. Nearby you also have a lot of bus stops and subway to all city directions, and the stop for the famous and rustic tram in the city, the 28 - locally known as "the yellow" - , just one minute walk from our front door. At Johnies Place you will enjoy Lisbon not just as one more tourist but as a longtime neighbor. ... more   less
