My husband and I are late 20s and booked a budget hotel in Baxia (residential Geres).
Some people had said there was drug dealer and prostitutes and it was 'unsavoury' (their words not mine).
However there was lots of good feedback saying we wouldnt be hassled. My guide book to Lisbon under the safety section says not to visit Baxia at night.
We are young and will want to go to bars for drinks and restaurants and be home around 12ish. Is this going to be a bad thing to do?
