Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

This was our first time staying at a Hostel (traveling as a couple), and we were so impressed.
The reception staff do everything they can to make sure you're happy and feel welcome. Everyone spoke great English and we're so helpful.

The experience and atmosphere of this place was really cool, it's situated right in the heart of Lisbon on top of a hill with an amazing view of the water. Was about a 15euro taxi ride from the airport, and walking distance to everything!

Kylie was on her first night of desk staff so we had a few issues with our room keys not working, and wrong wifi password, but she was helpful and even walked us to our room to ensure the keys worked and offered us a free welcome shot and Agua!

Rooms were clean, and stayed in a private double room with shared bathroom. These doubles are actually not in the main building and are up a giant Hill in a private courtyard. Great privacy! And away from the dorms.

Pros:
3 Euro Breakfast was amazing!
Dinners with staff/guest looked great!
Strong wifi
Beautiful atmosphere
Large rooms
Best staff!
Windows in room open + lots of fans!

Cons:
Make sure your room keys work before you make the hike up the hill...
Shared bathroom was nice and stocked with what you needed, but the ceiling had what looked like mold.
The doors are extremely loud when slammed (duh) but I mean LOUD.


WOULD STAY AGAIN!

What makes this hostel is definitely the staff. Everyone was so nice and welcoming they made you feel like family. They give you a free drink when arriving and even eat dinner and breakfast with you. Three euros for breakfast also can not be beat and it was good! The hostel itself was very clean and cool decor. Stayed in a double and had lots of privacy on the top floor. Bathroom was clean and stocked with everything you could need in shower(shampoo,conditioner,etc). Great stay would definitely return!

This place is amazing, I loved the staff and the entire environment of the place. Dinners are offered each night as well as free walking tours during the day. The staff actually hangs out with the guests a fair amount and are a great wealth of knowledge about the city

I was at the oasis lisbon just for 1 night, but it has been great.
Nice, cheap rooms, very good location, clean bathrooms, hip public areas and excellent service at the reception desk as they try to make your stay as nice as possible. Very nice staff in general.
They are even offering all you can eat - BBQs in their little garden.
Loved their sangria as well as their lovely breakies for 3€.
All in all a surprisingly good stay!

Great hostel next to an awesome viewpoint with an very good view at sunset, next to the crowded bairro alto, in walking distance to teh train station, metro or buses. Clean rooms, very friendly stuff, delicious food (!!!), nice garden, relaxed atmosphere... all in all, see you next time OASIS!

Room Tip: I guess there are no bad rooms ;) I stayed there 4 years ago (for 5 nights) and recently (for 4 nigh...

What you'll quickly find out from the walking tour (the best tour for local knowledge and you'll see why) is that, as well as the aesthetic and historical charm, Lisbon is really about the people - exemplified by the staff here, it's more like staying at your mate's house than at a hostel. Not the first person here to come back and hang out after having to move on to another place (book early so you don't have to), and I won't be the last.

This Hostel is without a doubt good, but what makes it excellent is the people working there! Besides the amazing staff (even the cleaning team is SO nice, happy and funny) you find nicely decorated and very clean rooms, proper mattresses, showers with pressure and that fancy little hook so you don't have to hold the shower, awesome breakfast, heaps of cool tips and events and a nice neighbour hood. If we wouldn't have flights booked we would have kept extending our stay and we will happily return to this little gem! Big thank you to the management&staff!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Oasis Hostel in Lisbon is a hostel in the real sense of the word. A hostel should be a hostel. We don't think that it should be a boutique hotel designed by Philippe Stark. A hostel should be cheap and in the best location of the city, within walking distance of everything worth seeing. A hostel should have staff that go out of their way for every traveller, not because we want better ratings but because it is what good people do. Besides having free wi-fi, lockers, and other standard services, a hostel should be clean, and most importantly a hostel should be cool but in the classic sense of the word like Mickey Rourke or Paul Newman, unique in personality that never goes out of style. A Hostel, more than a place to sleep should be a place that helps you feel what it's like to actually live in a city and not just stay in it. Our local and international staff are all Lisbon Lovers and use their wealth of information and personalities to show you their Lisbon with their eyes. We have activities, led by our staff that will let you truly come to know Lisbon and those who make it special. From local food tours, street art tours, all day adventures to experiences that guide books fear and tourists rarely see, our activities will leave you feeling Portuguese. Above all, a hostel should be social. In Oasis Lisbon Hostel with our bar, dinners and special events we go out of our way to make sure that we are the place to meet other interesting travelers to share your experiences with and if sometimes you wake up with a hangover as a token of our hospitality, all the better. Oasis Hostels are good for you! ... more   less
