I had bed #414 and I had several insect bites in the hostel, and unfortunately I brought them home with me in my luggagae and clothes. It cost me here 25 EUR/room to... More

Very helpful & friendly staff. Hostel is in a great location in the centre of the city close to main squares. Also very close to metro station. Hostel bar has a good atmosphere & the buffet breakfast is generous.

Lovely hostel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Picturesque elevator. If you want to party till 3 or 4 am I am sure it would be great. Music and shouting until 3:30, and an extremely loud bang frequently throughout the night. At first we thought it was someone jumping off a top bunk in the dorm above us, but it... More

The hostel itself is nice, the decor and the beds are absolutely ok, and the breakfast included in the price give you a good start on a new day. However the place tends to be quite noisy, people are not really realizing that different ppl have different ideas of a holiday, and happily wake you up when tehy come home... More

This place is great. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms and bathrooms. Great common area for guests to hang out in and also very reasonable price in a great location. I'd go back again when I'm in Lisbon for sure.

We stayed 5 nights in double ensuite. Everything went well: customer service was 24/7 and nice, and the hostel was peaceful enough. The cleaning at our room wasn't perfect, but at least we got fresh towels every day. Living room/kitchen/bar was well cleaned. There were a small refrigerator in our room and also breakfast (bread, cheese, ham, butter, jam, different... More

Can't ask for a better location. Right around the corner from the main square. Within walking distance to 75% of all Lisbon attractions! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and beds are comfy. The hallways smelled like a well used toilet unfortunately, buts that's the only bad thing I have to say about this place.... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
