We stayed in Downtown hostel twice and although it is very well located (Rossio square) we had a problem to find it for the first time. The room was clean, with shared bathroom, nevertheless the bathroom was clean and tidy as well.
The breakfest is free so it was nice start of the day with the scrumbled eggs :) .Free wifi in the lobby was included.
The airport bus as well as the subways is very close to the hotel and the beach is also 15 mins walk.

Room Tip: Haven´t seen any other rooms, but it feels like all the rooms are equipped with the similar stuff, s...

I stayed in Lisbon for two nights in March of this year during a month long tour of Europe. I visited 10 European cities and stayed in hostels in each of them. Out of all of the hostels I stayed in, this was absolutely the best. Here are the reasons why:

Location: You cannot get more central than the Downtown Design hostel. Right on the Rossio, you are steps away from the metro, Barrio Alto district, the tramlines, and shopping.

Breakfast: The best hostel I've had. Delicious scrambled eggs, pastries, toast, and coffee.

Rooms: Airy and large, super comfortable, right next to a well kept shared bathroom.

Management: Rui is an incredible kind and hard working guy. He gave us fantastic recommendations for things to do in Lisbon and its surroundings, as well as restaurants. The best part of our trip was when he took me and my friend with whom I was traveling out to Sintra. We paid 8 Euros each for the transportation and the opportunity to spend time with a friendly local full of great recommendations.

10/10. If you're staying in Lisbon, do not overlook this place. I had a perfect stay and absolutely will stay here next time I come back!

Well I have to say that this is one of the best places I've stayed in for the price it was! I stayed with a friend of mine, and from the moment we arrived we immediately felt at home. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The place didn't feel like a hostel at all; what with a twin room, sheets, towels, breakfast and a truly spectacular view of the Rossio square, for €10 per night each? AMAZING. When explaining all this to our friends who live locally, they couldn't believe our luck! There is honestly no where else I would rather stay if I returned to Lisbon ... I can't wait to stay again!
The only thing I would like to see on my next stay would be some clothing storage ... a chest of drawers in the rooms wouldn't go amiss!

This small Hostel is very well located in the center of it all, near the avenue of freedom where you can go shopping, of Lisbon nightlife, and relatively close to areas of tourist interest, such as Bethlehem

I was three days hosted hosting this unit and I can conclude that the team is very friendly and helpfull, the beds are very comfortable, the breakfast is absolutely fantastic and very varied nutritional good idea to start the day full of energy. The common areas, bathrooms and kitchen are cleaned every day and the rooms are also clean, I advise anyone who has a love affair try out promoting the hostel have "Romáticas Nights in downtown Lisbon." The surrounding area is full of glamor and archaic design, making it optimal to share experiences romantic.
