“A home feel budget hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

I like it a lot, the déco, the facilities, the staff, all in all are excellent! The location is close to the bus stop and the metro and all other interesting places to go. Even I arrived at 6am in the morning & woke up the reception girl, she let me check in & have a rest in the dorm. Just a small detail is about the smell in the side-room of the female dorm, it was a bit bad-smelling when I entered for the first time. Overall, I had a pleasant stay in the hostel.

Absolutely recommend this place. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful from the moment we walked in until the moment we checked out. They helped us find places to eat, sights to see, and things to do at night. The location of the hostel was great, it was just a short way from everything. It had a very communal feel and made for a comfortable weekend

Stayed on this hostel in both winter and summer holidays and I had a great time, every time.

The location is spot on, the staff is beyond friendly and very knowledgeable about the city, the atmosphere is second to none and the price is low.

Highly recommended.

Hi all,
I recommend the hostel because of the location, personal (especially Joao, the soul of the house), vibes and tidiness.

One star in voting is left out, because not all installations (like electrical (e.g. sockets), or water (the holdings of the shower) are in good condition. But If you can live with that, it´s perfect.

Room Tip: Prefer the 2 bed rooms

a simple friendly place. Great location. João and the team are fab. It's not as plush as some as the hostels in Lisbon, but those places often have no atmosphere and are full of nervous travelers. The beds at Lisbon Old Town Hostel I could sleep in all day - sooo comfy. cheers guys!

You cannot beat the location (so central that it is a 10 minute walk to everywhere), the staff is the coolest and the best, the morning breakfast rocks, and the price is right. The hostel is clean, and has a very laid back vibe. Think of an MTV Real World house without the drama. The Hostel is very clean and well furnished. They have private rooms if you are not into sharing or traveling with children (as several were when we stayed there), so this is a terrific option for those budget minded travelers who don't like sharing rooms with strangers, I would recommend this highly to anyone coming to Lisbon on a budget!
