Lisbon Destination Hostel is an affordable hostel to stay at while in Lisbon. The location is prime as it's steps away from Rossio Square with bars, restaurants, and shopping at your fingertips. Intitially this hostel is confusing to get to because it's in the metro station, but once you're settled in, it's very convenient! The hostel is very well kept, with clean bathrooms and showers. (not something I can say for the rest of the hostels in europe) The staff is what makes this hostel memorable though. Someone is always at the front desk willing to help out with any need. Daily excursions are arranged at affordable prices such as beach days, walking tours of Lisbon, and or tours of Sintra (a must see). They are very informative and passionate about their country which makes it enjoyable to learn about! Breakfast is included in your stay each morning which is a bonus. Very general such as eggs, toast, cereal, crepes, coffee, and juice. But the dinners are what make the food at this hostel outstanding. It's normally buffet style and you have to pay 8 euros but it's SO worth it! The chef is amazing at Portuguese cuisine, it's as if you're sitting in her kitchen and eating a meal with her family. It's well worth the 8 euros because it provides a full 3 course meal and wine in included!!! Don't miss her meals, they're worth it!
This hostel was by far the best once I came across in europe!
- 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
