Lisbon Destination Hostel
Ranked #10 of 517 Specialty Lodging in Lisbon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Stayed here recently for 2 nights and had a great stay.
The location is fantastic and right in the heart of Lisbon with a very modern look to the hostel and rooms. We had a double with shared bathrooms and both were clean and exactly what you need after a day of exploring.
Breakfast was good with cereal, toast, boiled eggs. The hostel has plenty of activities on especially at night including a good priced meal.
Lots of travellers of all ages from everywhere which I think makes a hostel great.

This was my first stay at a hostel and I enjoyed it very much. I decided to go with a private room which had a private bathroom. The room was spacious and comfortable. The free breakfast (toast, boiled egg, crepe, coffee, cereal, tea) was very convenient. I am a more mature traveller but felt comfortable here as it is a hostel for all ages. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The location was fantastic. Taking a day trip to Sintra cannot be more convenient as the trains are literally steps outside the hostel door (however, amazingly I couldn't hear any trains from inside the hostel!). There is free wifi throughout the hostel which was wonderful.

Rossio Patio was the perfect accommodation in Lisbon: very well located, near everything, very clean, the staff was super nice and helpful, fun activities (I went on the pub crawl and it was really fun) and a very good breakfast. I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm and have absolutely no complaints about anything. The hostel is located inside the Rossio Train Station, which was extremely convenient (the train to Sintra leaves from there). Walking distance to Alfama, Bairro Alto and Castelo de São Jorge, and there are subway, tram and bus stops nearby.
Great value for money, would recommend to anyone!

A gorgeous setting, a surprise to find a whole hostel INSIDE the Rossio Station, then more surprised of the fact that it was very quite!!!

Staff is very nice and helpful (despite a bit of difficulty in the kitchen during breakfast !!).

The Hostel is modern, the rooms are very spacious & comfortable as well as Clean. The patio area is lovely and bright with comfy bean bags :)

The Hostel is fantastically located with a wonderful view of the Castle from bedroom window .

I really did enjoy the stay there and if and when I go back would stay at same place :)

Please, please be aware of the robbers they are very good at unzipping and stealing your wallets or what ever their sticky fingers can grab out!! Luckily I caught one my self !!!

Enjoy and have a wonderful time :)

I never stayed in a hostel before but chose to do so because I was traveling with a young relative and I wanted her to have a good time with people her own age. My expectations were very low and I didn't expect to sleep very well.

To my great surprise, this hostel exceeding my expectations in every category. We had a twin ensuite room which was comfortable, immaculately clean, and silent at night. The hostel itself was light, modern and airy. The staff was friendly, competent and helpful. There were organized activities each day. For example, on our last evening we went to a local music bar where we listened to a type of Portuguese traditional music called foro escorted by the knowledgeable and personable Paulo. There was also a worthwhile day trip to Sintra organized by the hostel. Each evening a delicious three course supper is served at 8 PM for only 8 Euros. We ate there three times and they were among our best meals in Lisbon.

The location of the hostel is convenient and safe right off of Rossio Square, the center of Lisbon. Be aware though that Rossio Square can get a tad sketchy later at night so single females may want to keep that in mind when planning their day.

Here are some tips if you are planning to stay here:

1) If you are taking a taxi from the airport, ask the fare before you get in and tell the driver to turn on the meter.

2) The Hostel is the top floor of the Rossio Train Station. Just take the escalator to the top and turn left.

3) Bring your own towel, washcloth and flipflops.

4) Don't bother bringing high heels. It's impossible to walk in them because of the cobblestone sidewalks and the steep streets of Lisbon.

5) Definately sign up for the Sintra trip with Carlos. It was the highlight of our trip.

This was my first time traveling solo & staying at a hostel. All the reviews indicated to this hostel & from the first step into the hostel you will know why! The location couldn't be any better, right inside the train station (but don't worry, it's surprisingly quiet!) in the city centre with a beautiful view of the city.
The staff is super friendly, they remember your name, they are very patient, wiling to help you out & accommodate your needs as best they can. The hostel was opened only a few months ago, it's very clean & beautifully decorated. They organize activities like tours, dinners, pub crawls, Fado nights, etc, so one is never alone & one actually gets to experience the city with friendly & genuine guidance.
Their delicious dinners are made by their in-house chef, the breakfast crêpes are awesome & the tour guides are amazing!
Carlos is an outstanding tour guide and person; he is your friend, he encourages you to be curious about Portugal, the culture, the city, is full of information and advice, I will miss him! I took the Sintra tour and it was a very beautiful experience! He was also my driver for the airport shuttle service the hostel provides & even those 20 minutes were very fun!
This is the place I would recommend to everyone & when I go back this is where I'll be staying again!
Obrigada por uma experiência incrível!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In July of 2011, smack in the heart of downtown Lisbon - Rossio - a new hostel is born. It could be just another hostel, except it's not. Housed in one of Lisbon's most beautiful and renowned buildings - the Rossio Railway Station - an undisputed icon of late XIX Century Romantic architecture (and which has recently undergone a profound facelift), Lisbon Destination Hostel is perched around a winter garden, where light filters down from the rooftop, harmoniously flooding the patio and creating an ambiance that is both tranquil and upbeat. We had planned on catering to a specific target, only to realize later that we didn't have to. We're confident that, between the ample first floor bedrooms (sleeping 4 to 8) with large windows overlooking the historic city, and the double rooms one floor up which peer out over the winter garden, you - whomever you may be - will find your niche. And if all this weren't enough, please note that, from our doorstep, you can take the train to the town of Sintra, a Unesco World Heritage Site just 20 minutes' ride away. Once you get there, you'll understand why. ... more   less
