“Exquisite hotel in hostel format”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

When I found out that there is a hostel directly at the train station, I immediately had to go for it, what a cool idea. The hostel itself feels more like an exquisite hotel, with common kitchen as a bonus. The reconstruction of the space is done really well, nice design.
Some great points about this hostel: Despite being located some 50m from the train platform, there is no noise from them. The dorms are huge, with lots of space and large beds with comfortable steps for the upper bed. There might be some noise from the street, but as soon as You come tired to the hostel it is not a big deal. Well organized kitchen, and everything absolutely clean. It seemed like everyone could enter the patio, but all dorms had entrance secured by cards.
Some minor things that I didn´t like. Annoying showers, You have to push a small button to have some water, this was something I didn´t figure out on my own :o). Hopefully they will put there some advice on how to handle them. A hostel of this size would perhaps need more staff, the girl at reception desk did her best but she was nonstop busy which means You always had to wait if You needed something.
Another minor thing or better a matter of preference. This is quite big hostel, everything is shining clean and brand new, great design, but the homelike and cosy atmosphere some hostels can create is missing here. This is really more like a hotel. Also, no local staff, at least I have not met any. If You just need to come and go, this is a perfect place to stay. If You want to blend more with the place, this might not be the be the absolutely best place to do so, although it is near to perfect.

Room Tip: 6 bed dorms are perfectly OK

Location, location and location plus great ambiance, brand spanking new facilities including awesome kitchen, yummy breakfast , amazing views, solarium and space to hang out and a
helpful and pleasant staff. It is all it advertises and more. Best hostel I have ever been and it feels like a posh hotel. The proprietor JOAO and all his employees go out of their way to make your stay feel like home. The crowds will be flocking there once they find out this best kept secret in the city centre of Lisbon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In July of 2011, smack in the heart of downtown Lisbon - Rossio - a new hostel is born. It could be just another hostel, except it's not. Housed in one of Lisbon's most beautiful and renowned buildings - the Rossio Railway Station - an undisputed icon of late XIX Century Romantic architecture (and which has recently undergone a profound facelift), Lisbon Destination Hostel is perched around a winter garden, where light filters down from the rooftop, harmoniously flooding the patio and creating an ambiance that is both tranquil and upbeat. We had planned on catering to a specific target, only to realize later that we didn't have to. We're confident that, between the ample first floor bedrooms (sleeping 4 to 8) with large windows overlooking the historic city, and the double rooms one floor up which peer out over the winter garden, you - whomever you may be - will find your niche. And if all this weren't enough, please note that, from our doorstep, you can take the train to the town of Sintra, a Unesco World Heritage Site just 20 minutes' ride away. Once you get there, you'll understand why. ... more   less
