“Nothing special”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

This hostel looks like a flat divided into several rooms, some with bathrooms, some without. Everything is very basic: the breakfast is free but you don't have a lot of choice, the furniture in the room is essential (neither a wardrobe), you have to ask for towels.
The location is pretty good, but you are in Rossio, so if you wanna walk around Lisbon prepare yourself to climb the hills cause Rossio is on the level of the river Tejo.
The value is good, but it should be a bit cheaper cause it doesn't offer so much.

Reviewed 3 April 2013

Lisbonview is well situated, right in the centre of Lisbon and it's close to the tram and metro lines. The rooms are simple but clean and there's a free basic breakfast available (toast, jam, cereal, tea, coffee, milk), it's also very reasonable priced.

However, there are several small, irritating problems. The entrance is very hard to spot (even after 3 days I often walked past it) and the light in the stairwell wasn't working. The lock on the door to our room was a bit broken and usually required around 5 minutes of key-jiggling to get it open or to lock it. No water comes out of the shower unless you hold it about half a metre from the ground, which made washing a very awkward and uncomfortable procedure. Having only one bathroom for 8 or 9 rooms also means you sometimes have to wait quite a while to use it. Also the staff, although very friendly, are almost never there and they have very little information about attractions and no maps.

All in all though, these were only minor problems and may have already been fixed. I would recommend Libsonview, especially to anyone travelling on a budget.

Reviewed 23 January 2013

i stayed at the hostel in January 2013. The location is perfect - in the city centre and everything is in walking distance. Very helpful staff. This is more like a serviced apartment where the rooms in an apartment are rented out. but would definately fit the budget. There is no staff round the clock but when ever they are there -they are happy to answer your questions. The breakfast is quiet limited but you have an option to cook by yourself(no need to buy milk, cornflakes , Bread, jam, butter which is already available). I forgot my watch when i checked out but the staff kept it safe until i picked it up after 2 days.
