This is a very nice place to stay In Lisbon. We stayed in the room Calcada. It was nice, clean, but a bit small. It wasn't a big problem though, since we spent most if our time in the city. Some days we took a quiet break on the terrace. That was just wondeful laying there on the pillows, making a cup of coffee, relaxing. The breakfast is very good compared to the price. Fresh rolls, cheese, ham, different sorts of marmelade, cereals... just perfect for us! As another bonus the staff is very friendly and helpfull.

Amazing staff. Always with a smile and an answer for everything. As soon as we arrived, we were made to feel at home. We stayed in 'Escritor' - a large sunny room with three windows with views over the square. It was 42C when we arrived but we were soon put on a train to the beach. On Day 2, we were sent to the Flea Market and so it went on. (Don't miss Sintra!) The breakfast is great and when we said we would have to leave very early on the last day, breakfast was left for us in the kitchen! Nothing was too much. As for location - it's in the middle of everything. What more can I say?

Room Tip: I think it's worth paying a little more for a bigger room. We recommend 'Escritor? - big eno...

Staff is great, we had many funny encounters - ask them for places to go - great portugese food, parks to hang out, bars, hidden places and so on. Our room «culturas» was really small but charming and kept us discovering this beautiful city with its friendly people.

This was our second time staying with Lisbon Story Guesthouse. Our first trip, we really enjoyed the location of the hostel, the friendliness of all the staff and the breakfasts. When we returned for a short visit, the hostel surprised us with an upgrade at no extra charge. It was very thoughtful and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Lisbon Story and hope to see you again soon.

Lisbon Story Guesthouse is to me like the soul of Lisbon. The place and its hosts are warm, friendly, cozy, charming but unpretentious, and so helpful. Each room has a theme, and a story to tell, and it awaits your story.

Bountiful breakfast, excellent wifi. Location is very central. Train station is no more than 2 mins away. Shopping, restaurants, trams, taxis.

Lisbon Story Guesthouse is centrally located next to Rossio Square, giving you access to many of the city's sights by feet. The hostel is well managed and the friendly staff is always approchable and happy to help. Free internet and breakfast is included - and the breakfast is one of the best I ever had at a hostel.

Two downsides from my point of view: 1) No air conditioning, which can be a problem once the temperature rises above 30 degrees Celsius. 2) It is quite pricy. We booked a double room with private bathroom and payed 100 Euros per night. Not much for a hotel, but quite a lot for a hostel.

I would totally stay again at this hostel and can recommend it - although I'm sure that there are other hostels offering a slightly better value for money.

The tiny tiny rooms and shared bathroom (in my case) are tolerable, but what makes this hotel wonderful is the friendly, knowledgeable staff and the fun hangout room where you can check your emails, play a game of chess, eat breakfast, read guide books and plan your days. Great location, too.
