5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

This hostel is new and the location is amazing! I stayed here for two nights with a group of 55 people (most of them youngsters) and the experience was really good. It is placed in the downtown área, you can walk everywhere; mattresses are really confy; bedrooms are clean, each bunkbed has its curtain so they're all very private and bathrooms are clean and big. We were received by Pedro, who treated us very well. We also had dinner ate the hostel and we ate well, dinner was home made by the owners wife and she's really really welcoming, she even sang us a fado!!! Wonderful place to stay!

We started on our Camino Portuguese from Lisbon and were lucky enough to find the Golden Tram Hostel! - It was great, very welcoming, friendly and very clean. The beds were comfortable and private with the curtains to pull across for each sleeper. There is a plug-in for every bed for personal electronics, lockers assigned for each bed. The Wi-Fi worked throughout the hostel, not just the common areas. I would definitely recommend this hostel to friends and family travelling to Lisbon.

Hostel is very well situated close to centre and easy access from the aiport - either with metro or bus, also trams are nearby. Many attractions are really at walking distance - we even had view directly at Santa Justa Elevator :) friendly staff, nice "lounge", rooms are a bit small but good enough for sleeping. Would recommend.

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!…
