“I'll stay there again!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I only stayed at the Old Town Hostel for one night but this was enough to convince me to stay there again.

It's a bit tricky to find at first (especially when the Metro is on strike...) but the location is really good, it's only a short walk to the shops, the ocean and restaurants yet it's located in a quiet street.

I was greeted warmly and felt welcome right away. The hostel is very spacious and clean, with lots of sofas and common rooms.

The staff gave me some advice where to go in the few hours that I had in Lisbon which was really helpful. Since I had to leave early in the morning someone got up early as well to give me breakfast and check me out.

I wish I could have stayed there for a few more days but I will definitely come again one day!

Lisbon Old Town Hostel was really the best hostel on our trip throuh Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. The staff was more than friendly, polite and helpful. Whenever there was a question, where to got what to do... they helped us with an amazing effort. Another favor of them was to send my lost bag back home to my place, which was just so nice and not self-evident at all!The rooms where really clean and had a very nice furniture, with everything in it what you need as a traveler. The bathrooms and the kitchen were always clean and really nice to cook in the evening. If you get up you're just looking forward to a really good breakfast, including everything. We never had such a great breakfast in one of the other hostels and if you compare the price for one night it's really an amazing offer. So everyone who is in Lisbon, do not miss Lisbon Old Town Hostel!!!!

the best hostel ever! been there for 9 days during my Erasmus room searching and I loved it. the staff is absolutely awesome, rooms are super clean, breakfast unlimited! but the best thing is the atmosphere. I met good friends over there and I was so sad when we had to say goodbye. there's always easy jazz music playing, so it's a really cosy atmosphere in the living room, just like home. if you're in Lisbon, go in Lisbon Old Town Hostel!

Room Tip: I was in the biggest one (10 beds) and it was really relaxing cosy. You can meet good people just by...

This Hostel is amazing.
the location is near Rossio square so it is quite convenient.
The people here are nice.
And it is really cheap! I love here.
It also includes the free wifi, computer service, room to play games, chess and books to read, including English books. There are free movie CDs and games to watch and to play. Also, you can use the kitchen to cook food for free. The breakfast are nice. Milk, bread, all kinds of jams, juice and all kinds of cereal. the service is also great.

Really friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, nice place in the heart of Lisbon. Highly recommended! Definitely go to the hostel-sponsored dinner for 10 euros to meet new people and experience delicious Portuguese cuisine!

Great location. The staff is very friendly, kind and helpful. They will give you all the information you need about Lisbon. The hostel is very clean and tastefully decorated. I could get the old town feeling. I wish I could stay longer.

Room Tip: Rooms at the top floor 'penthouse' are quieter.

Very unique structure of the building. The second you enter the hostel you are practically on the balcony by the reception, with people usually relaxing on it to welcome you, feeling like home.
Staff are perfectly friendly, they will give you 100% of their attention (in time ofcourse) to help you with advice for sighstseeing, or even just to hang out.
They organize dinners in the living room sometimes with live music ;) We had some great nights there. Some people who live in the area but have stayed in the hostel in the past still come to the hostel to visit for the lively cosy atmosphere. The only hostel we stayed in in Lisbon, but has left us uncurious about the others.
We extended two weeks :D Very Greatful, thank you to Joao, and all the staff.
