Johnny's Place was a positive surprise. Having booked randomly the night before, we didn't quite know what to expect. We arrived at night, greeted by the manager who gave us a tour of the place. The hostel is quite big, with several common rooms (Narguileh area, library, table football) and a kitchen with all amenities.
Breakfast is included in the otherwise cheap rate, but you have to prepare it yourself. 50 meters from the Hostel there is a viewpoint with a fabulous view of Lisboa. The neighbourhood is not very touristy, rather genuine and ethnic, and the owner indicated a good place for us to go and listen to Fado. The famous tram line 28 passes through the area and is a good way to go downtown (which is otherwise a 15-minute walk downhill).
As for the room, it was big, well heated and featured an ensuite bathroom. All in all, we felt very well taken care of in this great place, that I'd definately recommend to any budget traveller looking to stay for a while in Lisboa.
