“Great!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Good position, good people, good food, good atmosphere, good price, good everything!
You understand it's an hostel instead of an hotel only because you sleep in same room with other people.

Totally recommended !! thank you owners !!

If you can afford a more expensive hostel or hotel, I might do it, but for this price, there is nothing better. Breakfast was included and delicious (ham, cheese, bread, jam, butter, espresso machine, juices, yogurt, cereal) and free water at any time. The beds were extremely comfortable and have a fabric screen in front of it so you have plenty of privacy. However, be aware that not every bed gets a locker - some only get a drawer with no lock and I really wasn't ok with that. Also, the shower lights go off every few minutes but have motion sensors so just wave your hand. The rooms are not huge, but again, for the price, this is excellent. Everything was clean and the best part was the friendly staff! They answered questions happily and with lots of info and there is even a free walking tour twice daily. Plus, the location is only a 2 minute walk from the Baixo Chiado metro station and a 3 minute walk to the Plaza where tons of buses leave and arrive. Lots of good shopping and restaurants right around the area and very close to Bairro Alto for partying. They also have a neat elevator and there was only once where somebody didn't close the door and I had to take the stairs. Plus, I heard happy hour was fantastic! It is pretty loud at night though so definitely bring ear plugs. Top bunk beds were pretty hard to get into though.

It`s the best hostel I`ve ever stayed at. Clean, new, quiet, great staff, and in the center of Lisbon. Highly recommended. Best of all the ownwers, Linda and Antonio, who made me feel at home. The rooms are quite big and there is a locker for everyone. The matresses are better than the one I have at home as well as the pillow. Every room is very well decorated. There is also an air conditioning device in every room. The dinning room is very comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with two very modern ovens and a fridge. They also have a menu for dinner around 8 euros cooked by Linda, the owner, who is a great cook.

I love everything in this hostel, really enjoy the stay, friendly staff, comfortable bed. The location of the hostel is also fantastic and the free tour is worth a trying. Altough the breakfast may not enough for guys, is better to provide more breads!…

Breakfast included, very cheap, comfortable beds, nice enough view, pleasant staff. They give advice on things to do. You're right by the water and near the square. Loved this hostel, will definitely go back (should i ever return to Lisbon). Beds are actually cleaned everyday too like a hotel. I can't get over the value for money but then how much effort they put into making sure you have the most pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Go for big rooms and make some friends

Golden Tram is an excellent hostel, located in the centre of Lisbon's busy nightlife. The hostel itself was very clean and neat. Nothing bad can be said about this place. Staff was really helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was great overall! Common room was big enough, there was a kitchen and two computers with an internet connection. Breakfast included in the price and let me tell you, the price was cheap too! Excellent value for money. Highly recommended!

This is easily the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It's new, clean and friendly.
The rooms are immaculate and each bed has a personal curtain and your own light, charging outlet and basket for personal belongings.
The breakfasts are great: ham, cheese, bread roll, watermelon, unlimited espresso coffee, tea and juices.
The staff are amazing, they took care of us so well, they made amazing home cooked dinner which they sold for incredibly cheap. The house mama was so kind!
They sell a really great Sangria on tap also which you just must try.
The wifi is excellent in all spots of the hostel.
Just an all over great hostel .
If you guys read this, this is from the 5 Australian girls thank you for the amazing stay! Xx
