Lisbon Happy Hostel
Ranked #149 of 484 Specialty Lodging in Lisbon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 28, 2014

This hostel is superb. Clean, comfortable bed which was changed after 3 days (I stayed a week) The lady running it was very helpful, friendly and polite. she spoke some English which helped as my portugese is non existent!
I was offered a heater at night; I didn't need it but found one left in room anyway (nice touch :-D)

I travelled solo but this place would be perfect for a couple. I will travel to Lisbon again and most definitey stay here again.

The only grumble I would have is. The bathroom was tiny and even though there was a cooker it only had hobs and no oven which meant I couldn't cook much.

Recommend

Room Tip: Room away from street as there was a bit of noise but not much.

Hostel in center in the center of Lisbon, with almost no service and small uncomfortable rooms and very poor breakfast. Average is only for location. No AC and only electric heater. It's nice to have kitchen.

this hostel is located on a quiet street, right off a major tourist street so it's nice and quiet. the set up was more like apartments to me, with rooms off one hall and a kitchen and small common area. we got a triple room for the 2 of us, which was fine however i think it would have been cramped with a 3rd person. the room was clean and the location is very close to the metro and several major plazas.

i was only surprised to be checked in by a woman who spoke only portuguese. that and if you're a light sleeper (like me), request a room away from the kitchen!

When we got to Lisbon happy hostel we thought we got the wrong address
There is no sign or anything showing that there was an hotel or hostel in the building
The restaurant next to it had a huge table and therefore we couldn't get in the building easily

The room was pretty and basic so was the toilet but overall very nice.

Kitchen was good, free food and clean space

Wifi was not working properly especially because we were located at the end of the corridor.

The girls Woking there were nice but their English was not that good

I would love to revamp that hostel. It needs help to get attention out there

It's in a great location and they offer toast and cereal for breakfast. It is a good value for money paid.
There are some disadvantages though. The hostel doesn't have any big sign at the door so it was quite hard to find it. Also on the door bell and on the front door it's not written that there is the hostel. The hostel is in the 3rd floor (without elevator) and its quite hard to carry up all the luggage.
The hostel is in the center (pedestrian zone) and it can be quite noisy some nights.
Our head was also itching very much after sleeping on those pillows so I think there might be some bed bugs or something in the pillows.

Room Tip: Try to get the room that is not turned on the street, because it can be quite noisy.

A great location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff. Good value for your money. Close to metro, bars, restaurants, shopping. Memorize the address before going, there is no sign.

The hostel is very clean and the location could not be better! You will have to search for the number on the door because there is no sign for the hostel. We had a double room with shared bathroom. The room is very comfy, the bathroom a little small but clean. There is a well equipped kitchen where you can prepare meals if you want (Lisbon is not so cheap! :))
If we go back to Lisbon (hope we will), we'll stay here again for sure!
