“Best Hostel I have stayed in.”

Lisboa Destination Hostel is clean, friendly, comfortable, relaxed, brilliantly located and amazing value for money. The staff are incredibly helpful. I cannot fault the Hostel. Lisboa is also a beautiful city.

Would definitely recommend staying at this hostel, it's better than staying in a hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, pool table, tea/coffee, piano, chess game, TV room, kitchen, guitar are all at your disposal - free of charge.

The place it self is centrally located and very clean.

I booked this hostel because of it's good reviews and it did deliver! I travel a lot but this was one of the best hostels I have stayed. Very easy to meet new people. Relaxed and warm atmosphere. Plenty of activities if you want to take part and surprisingly comfy beds for a hostel. Not noisy even though in a station next to a big square. Staff really cool and helpful (you don't have to chase the finnish guy down anymore for the review Hugo!). The only -ve thing I would say is that it was bit cold in the evenings. All in all would definitely recommend!

I have already been into many hostel recently, but none was so awesome as Lisbon Destination Hostel!

First, the location is amazing! It is really inside Restauradores train stration! which is within walking to anywhere in Lisbon without having to climb hills or go down them.

The staff is pretty awesome and helpful, the breakfast has plenty of options, the decoration is incredible and the bedroom as very very comfortable!!

Honestly speaking this was the best place i've stayed ever!!

Fantastic hostel all round. I simply cannot say enough about this place. From the moment you are buzzed through the door you feel safe, welcome and at home in the environment. The staff are fantastic, the place is clean. The kitchen is a delight to cook in but you don't have to as Maria is there to cook a fab 3 course meal for you should you choose to join the nightly hostel meal. The room was fantastic large and with an awesome shower. Finally the location could not have been better. If you choose this hostel e mail the staff and get the metro directions from the airport, really easy and very cheap way of getting into the city.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Stayed 5 nights in a private room with en-suite bathroom. The location - inside Rossio Station - is literally perfect. It's smack dab in the center of the city, 10-20min walk from basically everything. There is a Metro line nearby that goes to the airport, but taxis are less than 20euro.

The hostel is built around an atrium full of bean bag chairs and lounge areas with music playing most of the day. This is both a positive and a negative of the hostel; you get a very communal feel and its very easy to meet fellow travelers in the kitchen area, but it gets loud from music and people chatting.

I wouldn't necessarily classify this as a 'party hostel' as there was a mix of young and old guests, but it's definitely a social place where you can meet fellow travelers. They do enforce quiet hours starting at midnight, which was nice, however since many bars in Lisbon close at 6am, we found ourselves losing out on some sleep.

The biggest issue, which is why I took away one star, is that you can't use your own locks on the lockers (at least in my room). I would feel better if I could have locked up my stuff using my personal lock.

Pros:
- Perfect location
- AWESOME staff - all of them are super friendly and fun.
- One of the cleanest hostels I've been to
- Surprisingly comfortable beds
- Very affordable tours of Sintra (Daniel is awesome), walking tours, and street art tours.
- Killer buffet on Sunday evening.

Cons:
- It's very loud during the morning, so definitely bring ear plugs if you plan to sleep off a late night in Barrio Alto.
- The lockers have electronic locks, so you can't use your own lock.
- Some of the tours were cancelled last minute or weren't scheduled.

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
