Reviewed February 3, 2014

My friend and I stayed nearly a whole week at Sunset (before moving to one of their other great hostel Alfama) and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff. The building and the amenities are great, and there couldn't have been better people! I loved it and miss it!

Room Tip: We had the six bed mixed dorm, and while it's hard to climb to the second bunk sometimes, it'...

The location, in the middle of a train station, and right next to the river, may be the best thing I can say about this hostel. In fact, we had to cross a corridor over the station in order to go to our room. You can hear the trains arrive and all of the advices given in the station, but you won't feel bothered since the noise stops at a reasonable hour. There's a five minute walk to the Praça del comerço, which is the very center of Lisbon, and it's just beneath the Bairro Alto.
Besides, there's a very nice living room, a nice kitchen (quite a nice breakfast too) and, at the top of the building, you have a chill zone. There a little swimming pool from which you can se the Tejo river and the Ponte 25 de abril.
The staff was very nice at times, some other times it was a little bit worse, though. The main problem may be that we didn't really feel at home. They also gave us some advice on where to go to hear fado one day, and the next day they told us a very different thing about it (the girl who gave us advice the second time was absolutely right).
The atmosphere was not the best, but that depends a lot on the guests there are at the moment.
The price is very high, comparing to other places in Lisbon, I don't really know whether it's worth it or not, too expensive in my opinion. Overall, it's a quite nice place to stay.
As far as I know, there's not a fitness center.

I stayed here for one night at the end of a vacation when I was alone after friends took off earlier due to different flights. And realized I should've stayed here all along, instead of the bigger hotels I stayed in.

It is right above the metro station in a beautiful building. You can look outside your room window and people watch as commuters get out of the subway station.

The staff was extremely friendly and upgraded me to a double room since they had misplaced my reservation. The hostel had a great roof area with a pool and a garden.

Overall, these are the kind of places that make hostels still stay in vogue.

I stayed at this hospital 5 nights and loved it. The location is unique on top of a train station along the river. Also this is an active station so it is easy to get ANYWHERE. The staff was very fun and informative. The price is not the lowest I've seen but its worth the few extra euros for what you get. Would definitely recommend and come back.

Unfortunately I spent just four nights there and was ill most of the time. But the hostel is great, I loved the terrace and the atmosphere of the hostel. The lovely members of stuff organized a lot of activities and helped with everything I needed. I can just recommend it. Merry christmas to the members of staff.

I stayed for 3 nights on my own (originally booked two) but could have stayed longer if I didn't have other plans. The hostel constantly has activities (dinners, walking tours..) planned so you could stay for a week without a chance to be bored. I had a chance to visit their sister hostel, also in lisbon, which seemed to be just as great. For the most part the staff were really welcoming and helpful, I felt like they were having just as good a time as the guests. Also all the food at both hostels was great, and the locations if the hostels was convenient. Thanks for the excellent stay!
