We spent 2 nights in a private room in the Unreal Hostel Lisboa and were very happy with our stay. The absence of signage made it difficult to find initially (we had to enquire with the concierge of a nearby hotel for directions), though is very close to the Picoas metro .
There was quite a wait at reception, however, this was largely because we had booked the wrong dates (clever!) and the Unreal team were only too happy to sort this out for us. If you intend on using the air-conditioning and hostel towels, be sure to mention this at check-in as each attracts a bond (€20 and €5 each, respective).
The room was basic, modern, clean and with a small balcony. Wifi access in the room was excellent - we were able to use laptop, 2 x iPhones and iPad simultaneously with ease and even made clear FaceTime calls. Breakfast of toast, cereal, coffee/tea is served daily 8-10am and great to kick-start your day in the city.
The Lisbon Metro is an absolute pleasure to use and the hostel is only a few stops from the centre of everything (€1.60 for a single trip or €6 for a day ticket which covers bus, tram and metro).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hans Brinker Hostel Lisbon is a great place to go to if you want to have a fun stay in Lisbon's city centre. Either if you decide to go out or stay in at night, you'll have a good time anyway! We offer cheap beds in basic rooms, perfect for students, backpackers and other young travelers. As we provide over 150 beds, we're also a great hostel to host groups! You can book private rooms as well as a bed in a dormitory (from 4 up to 10 people). We are located in Lisbon's city centre, right next to the Parque Eduardo VII, a great place to hang out with a group of (new) friends in Summer. Bars and restaurants are located around the hostel. If you want to go to the old city centre, it is about a 20 minutes' walk over the big boulevard 'Avenida da Liberdade', or 5-10 minutes by Metro, which is located close to the property. ... more less
