Reviewed May 30, 2013

Very nice common area and staff, one of the best hostel breakfast I ever seen, and a good location (near the pubs from Bairro Alto!). The problems are the lond stairs to get there, and when they put you on a separate room (outside hostel, on the street floor) it's not so nice.
The worst thing is the check-out time, too early, at 9a.m.

I had no expectations at all before i arrived and was more than pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the staff, the location (close to all the major districts and not far from the airport), and the cleanliness of the place. It also has a great value. Callum and Kirsty at the reception were great and really made me feel at home. They were great fun on a night out and equally helpful with giving advice. I really hope to visit again sometime and will be sure to stay there if i want a fun stay in lisbon again. Thanks Callum and Kirsty!

Stayed for two nights in early April.

This hostel was excellent value for money and would have been even better if I had booked directly with them.

Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, including giving me breakfast before the appointed time when I checked out.

We booked this hostel on a short notice and couldn`t believe our luck. This place has been freshly renovated. Everything is new, everything looks good. For a hostel, it is as clean as it gets. I really have to say I have never seen anything like it. I guess because everything is new they want to keep the nice look as long as possible. Also I have to mention the showers. Every shower is a separate room with a walk-in shower of around 3 sqm. Yes that`s right. Also I can`t remember to have heard anything like it from a hostel.

If you have the chance, ask for a room in the front and as high as possible, as it will give you a great view over some parts of the city, including the castle. In general, the location is pretty great. It is directly below Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcantara, one of the nicest view points of the city. The city center, Barrio Alto and a lot of great restaurants are in a walking distance of 10 min. I can`t really say anything bad about it.
Also the staff was very friendly and gave us a lot of great tipps about nightlife in Lisboa.

All in all, I highly recommend this place. I think some of the less enthusiastic reviews must come from the time before the renovation. Now, for a hostel, it is really as good as it can get.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front side as high as possible (the ones with balcony)

I had nothing booked for my stay in Lisbon and ended up in Equity point hostel and I have no regrets at all. The price is nice. Everything is clean. There's free bread and fruit in the kitchen. They have a guy that makes pancakes every morning for breakfast, for free. There is a cosy common room and a seperate tv room with free internet and use of computers. The staff make free tea for all the guests.
But the best point of this hostel is most definitely the staff. They are very nice and welcoming. Always in for a chat and they know what to advice you. I really want to come back to Lisbon just so I can stay in this hostel again. Thanks to all the staff for making my stay in Lisbon so nice!

There is literally nothing bad that I could say about this hostel. The staff was amazing, so helpful, they even helped us navigate the bus systems to get to our next destination! Everyone was very welcoming, the rooms were nice, beds comfortable, showers INCREDIBLE.

Hie the Hostel had amazing staffs and get-together.
The walking tour was a real eye-opener-they survive totally on tips and nothing more.
Had great time with friends, just the location is quite an exercise but otherwise everything is fine...
The upper decks creates hell over noise when you are coming down, I was annoying the rest but they were understanding.
