Living Lounge was definitely a step above a hostel. I had a double room with a friend and felt like I was in a decent hotel. Decor was trendy and the bathroom was modern. Nice common areas and balcony around the whole building. Located in a perfect area, walking distance to everything and felt safe.
The best part though, was really the staff. We received seriously solid recommendations from each staff member, each of whom gave us a ton of time with explanations, directions, suggestions based on feeling out what we were looking for. They weren't touristy recommendations, but places that made you get the feel of Lisbon like a local. They went beyond being good employees. The most helpful was actually the owner (I never grabbed his name). He was beyond accommodating and gave us super fun and interesting recommendations for anything from beaches to bars. He also made sure we weren't homeless for the night when the hostel was booked up one night (due to poor planning on our part and not booking enough nights in advance). That truly made our trip - I recommend this place for the staff members!
