“Spotlessly clean ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

A warm welcome by JP accompanied by a quick tour,he showed us to our room - a massive double, nice and warm,really clean, comfy bed. Small drawback was the multishared bathroom, but the rooms all have a light that tells you when it is free. Good location just below Bairro Alto and close to an airport bus. Right price, small breakfast included, I will stay again!!

Cute, clean, warm hostel in the best location. The common area was awesome and the room we stayed in was light and airy with a big window opening out onto the square outside. Tiago made us feel very welcome and recommended the best places to see during our short stay. We tried the nearby restaurant he suggested and had delicious Portuguese food. Alfalma was beautiful and the views from and around Castelo S. Jorge were breathtaking. We willed definitely be back to Lisbon Calling and would only change one thing- we'll stay for longer!

My boyfriend and me had a wonderfull experience staying in Lisbon Calling Hostel. We both agreed that we never stayed in a better guesthouse/hostel/hotel than this one. It has two departments in an historical building, one with dorms and one with double rooms. Both of those departments are spacious, light and decorated so beautifully and creative. Every little detail is thought through and gives the place a very authentic atmosphere. The minute we walked in to the door we felt at home. Yet it was like we were sleeping in art. We had a very spacious room with a private bathroom. The shower was big enough for couples and the water was hot! For the other two double rooms there was a stylish bathroom with a bath and shower. And every corner of the guesthouse was incredibly clean. I felt comfortable to walk around in the hallway and the kitchen on my socks or barefoot.
Every morning there was a bag on our door with fresh bread which we could prepare at our own time in the communal kitchen where we could you use free coffee, thee, cereals and things to put on the bread like yelly. Of course there is space to buy and keep your own things in the fridge as well. The staff is very friendly, helpfull and attentive. They help you to find out things you would like to know about Lisbon and they make a real effort to assist in any way. The staff decorated most of the guesthouse themselves. True artists.
The guesthouse is in a central place, close to the river and to lively neigbourhoods like Barrio Alto and Alfama. There are supermarkets around the corner that are open untill late at night and there also are some clubs at walking distance.
Do we need to say more? Its also very affordable and the guests that stay there are very nice people to meet.

Room Tip: There is one double room with a privatebathroom. The other two rooms share a very stylish bathroom w...

It felt like being at a friends house.... a warm friendly welcome , an athmosphere to feel like at home ... I came from a nature-place in Alentejo and had to spend one night in Lisbon because of a flight in the early morning. The hostel was like an oase in the busy citylife. Just a walk of 5 minutes and I was in a little restaurant with original beautiful fado life music.In the early morning so easy to use the kitchen for a tea and a müsli and leaving with a taxi to the airport. So it was a pleasure to spend one night in Lisbon.

Room Tip: just call or mail before you are coming

I had a great stay at The Lisbon Calling Hostel. The staff was very welcoming, and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and the whole place was very nice. I practically had the entire hostel to myself. Although this was very nice to have all the space to myself, it was also the only downside to my stay. I was hoping to meet some new people, especially since I was traveling alone, the company would have been nice. I definitely recommend staying here if anyone plans to visit Lisbon. The hostel is very centrally located and everything is walking distance!

Excellent, warm place near the old town, one minute from the end of Metro Green Line. Beautiful restaurants around where you can find delicious dishes of good quality food and reasonable to low prices. But the real gem is the hostel and the lovely people who run it. Friendly and helpful. Clean and lovely decorated afar from IKEA standards with reasonable room prices. This place is invested with personal work and love and it certainly gets much of it back. And it is worth it! Definitely the place to stay in Portugal.

We spent there two nights in a different rooms. First was a 1987 and second was huge room 1812. We were impressed by this experience cause we saw how everything was organized in this hostel. I mean design, service and entertainment.

Room Tip: Both rooms that we have chosen (1987 & 1812) had view to the church.
