My friend and I were in Lisbon for an extended weekend and as traveling students, we were pretty clueless. Everyone here was super friendly and told us everything we wanted to know. Their tour also hit all the major spots and plus it was a great location - right up a couple streets from restaurants/bars and on the other side very close to a lot of shopping!

Very clean, tasteful decor. The only thing I had to complain about was I could hear the water plumbing inside the wall in our room but minimal problems because we weren't in the room for long!

Just been for a weekend stay at this hostel. There were 11 of us in total. Great location next to the metro, short walk to catch the tram 15 to the tourist area with the monastery etc.

Modest breakfast offered of cereal / toast / fresh fruit / tea / coffee and juice.

great warm hot showers and a lovely communal room.

Its up on the 5th floor and we wouldn't have found it without the help of our taxi driver. The door has no logo on it.

The lift wasn't working when we went so its amazing how long it takes to climb 5 flights of stairs.

The only downside was laminate flooring in the main corridor meant you heard everyone arrive / leave so try to book rooms 6 - 9 as these are the furthest away from reception and the communal area but are dorms of 4 beds.

Saw two receptionists over the weekend who were brilliant, gave us local restaurants and what stops to go to for the buses and trams! Thanks for making our trip so easy.

Room Tip: They do have private double rooms which are much quieter but don't think you can book them on th...

We've stayed at a number of hostels in the past 3 months and this would have to be the best all round.
The best location in the nicest part of Lisbon
The most helpful staff which are from Lisbon so know Lisbon
They also go over and beyond call of duty when it comes to organising activities and events!!
The place itself is clean and modern with all the creature comforts of your own home
The beds are comfortable and rooms big and plenty of natural light

Just think of everything you want in a place and this has it!!

Room Tip: Room no 1 is a corner room, has 3 windows and is a 4 bed dorm

We stayed here early October. It is easy to find. Just op the street from the square Largo Chaido. Really friendly staff! Creative clean rooms! All in all a great stay. Excellent location!

We stayed in the Pessoa private room. It is located at the back of the building. When you stay here during the weekend or if you are a light sleeper it is probably recommended to ask for a room at the back (not the front or side) due to street musicians who sometimes go on until 3 am.
Or you can just join the party in Lisbon :)

Room Tip: The rooms in the back of the building are quieter.

The hostel is located in the heart of Lisboa which means you are in the vibrant center of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. You have lots of cafes, restaurants, delis, etc. nearby, if you wish to go out at night, you are a stonethrow away from the epicentrum of bars and clubs. The hostel itself is very clean and very secure. The details in the decoration are very nice. Negative: the wifi signal is not the best in the double rooms. What I didn't like was that you hear almost everything from the hallway when you are in the room. As I stayed there in summer you can imaginge that it was very hot, but it was impossible to open the window as there was a constant noise. As you can imagine, I had some sleepless nights... Somehow I found the atmosphere in the hostel a bit pretentious.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the backyard have A/C noise

With only one evening to spent in lisbon, i once more choose the poets hostel. One step from the metro exit. At the base of the best area for a night out including some fado if you are lucky. Clean hostel with lots of room to leave your stuff, and max only 6 people per room. Breakfast ready in time. Free wifi. Only drawback this time was that the elevator was not working, and the hostel is at the top floor of high building. Not easy with a heavy suitcase.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Set between cobblestone alleys and old streets, Lisbon Poets Hostel is the perfect place to soak up the charm of this mythical city. Located in Chiado - the most happening district in Lisbon - you'll find us amongst the most beautiful buildings which were restored to their former glory after the earthquake of 1755. It's also the arts district - you'll find out what Portuguese street art is all about, as well as many small art galleries in the least expected places, little-known concert venues and the best alternative designer decor shops in the city. Lisbon Poets hostel sits above 'A Brasileira', Lisbon's most famous cafe, and is just steps away from the Baixa-Chiado metro exit. Just beside us is Bairro Alto, the famous nightlife district where you can dance the night away, with streets full of bars, cafes and general booze-filled fun times. ... more   less
