Lisbon RiverView Hostel

Reviewed 22 April 2014

We stayed in this hostel for 4 nights, yes it is 4 flights up with no lift, but for a short stay we didn't have too much baggage and so this didn't pose a problem. Nice welcome from Helena on arrival, clean room, good view from the balcony of Main Street and sea. Was a bit noisy at night as lots of partygoers and cars were passing outside late in the night. Also quite bright, with light curtains. If you take an eye mask, some ear plugs if you're a light sleeper, and are prepared to climb a few stairs you'll find good accommodation in an excellent location, close to baixa chiado station.

Shared bathrooms well equipped and no problems at all. Would stay again.

Kitchen is of a good size and we didn't really encounter any other guests when we made meals. Annoyingly someone opened our houmous and used it, but that's our only grumble.

Lisbon truly is beautiful and a fantastic city, do go!

This hostel was excellent. Compact and double rooms are even very well priced. Nice views from our corner room and facilities good and well cleaned. Only warning I would give is be prepared for the 4 floors up you need to walk otherwise excellent!

For only €10 a night we didn't expect much, what we got was the best accommodation of our two month Eurotrip. Clean, comfy, amazing location in the old town near the metro, shopping and main square. Good kitchen and wifi and our host was so so lovely, very kind and accommodating. A great place to chill out, close enough to everything to do a morning activity then pop back for lunch then head out again!

The RiverView Hostel was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed.
- The location is just fantastic - easy to find from the subway, close to the waterfront and many other monuments of Lisbon.
- The owner of the hostel is lovely and helpful, and don't worry, she can speak quite good english.
- It is cheap, 10 euros per night without breakfast, and in this hostel you share the room with maximum 2 people, she also has rooms with 2 beds and double beds. And for the breakfast the closest grocery store is just one block from the hostel.
- Extremely clean, the owner is all the time cleaning, I had never seen such a clean hostel.
- The view from the balcony is just beautiful.

The only negative part is in case you have a suitcase, as the hostel is in the 4th floor and there isn't an elevator.

All in all, I am definitely staying there again when I have the chance to travel to Lisbon again.

I had an awesome stay at the RiverView Hostel and enjoyed the added exercise on several flights of stairs. The location can't be beat – it offers easy access to the waterfront and the various neighborhoods of Lisbon (and is easy to find from the subway). I had an amazing room with a terrace view, and enjoyed access to the kitchen, clean bathrooms, and more.

Hostel has great location, just next to the centre. It is very clean, personality is very polite and you have all facilities that you need. Small kitchen,frigiator and microwave and also a room with TV.
The only ' problem' can be stairs ( if you have heavy lagguage ;))

Fantastic position but be warned of the 4 - 5 levels of stairs you have to lug your bags up. When we stayed its was 40degrees and with no air conditioning in a room in the roof it was sweltering, therefore I would only recommend staying here when it's not so hot. The kitchen is brilliant and the views and location are fantastic! The lady who runs it is delightful and always very helpful. Would stay here again but not in summer.
