I greatly enjoyed my stay in this hostel - due to several factors.
a. Excellent staff who were very courteous and extremely helpful, making you feel cared for and wanted - almost as though they knew you before and want you to come again
b. Very clean, well furnished rooms with all needed ameneties
c. Availability of all basic facilities to make one feel at home - a good kitchen facility with all gadgets to prepare your hot meals; a laundry with washing machine and dryer to get your suitcase clean and ready for the next leg of your journey; free wi-fi and computer facility to keep in touch with emails and browsing the news paper from your country; TV room and screening of movies once in a week;
d. Proximity to the city centre, easy accessibility (located in one of the main train stations and at walkable distance from two important Metro stations) and location close to several places of tourist interest; possibility of being picked up for walking tours from the hostel lobby
e. the unbelievably low cost compared to hotels in capital cities.
I would not only stay in this place again but also recommend this place to my family, friends and colleagues who may visit 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
