“Friendly place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

It's a very nice place to have rest after some hours of tourrism in Lisboa.
Like a big family, the teams crue are friendly and also listening if you've got questions.

Il ne faut pas hésiter à y aller.

In one word: awful!

1. The breakfast: you have to do your own dishes - I didn't see a lot of people use detergent; the quality of the products is very poor: the cheapest house brand of the supermarket.

2. Bathroom: no privacy - everyone can hear you when you're on the toilet + mixed bathrooms.

3. Room - you get only 1 towel, it was never changed; the room was never cleaned (only the waste paper basket was emptied daily); the bed was never made; you are not allowed to consume anything but water in your room; the room was extremely hot and opening a window does not help since the room has a view on the interior (= under a roof) garden.

4. NOISE: there is music and talking (even screaming) ALL DAY LONG! It starts in the morning (yes, people, the hostel decides when you have to wake up = around 8 AM), it continues until at least 11 PM (even in the afternoon there's "music" (and we aren't talking about "lounge music") you can't even take a quick nap!). EARPLUGS WON'T HELP!

Very clean and maintained hostel in a great location to various attractions around the city and run by wonderfully cheerful people.

Great day tours with a handsome young tour-guide Pedro and Delicious three course meals cooked by the wonderful chef Maria.

I would highly recommend this hostel for anyone and I will be a returning customer.


Best wishes,
Tom.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 104 and found it perfect.

Would definitely recommend staying at this hostel, it's better than staying in a hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, pool table, tea/coffee, piano, chess game, TV room, kitchen, guitar are all at your disposal - free of charge.

The place it self is centrally located and very clean.

I booked this hostel because of it's good reviews and it did deliver! I travel a lot but this was one of the best hostels I have stayed. Very easy to meet new people. Relaxed and warm atmosphere. Plenty of activities if you want to take part and surprisingly comfy beds for a hostel. Not noisy even though in a station next to a big square. Staff really cool and helpful (you don't have to chase the finnish guy down anymore for the review Hugo!). The only -ve thing I would say is that it was bit cold in the evenings. All in all would definitely recommend!

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
