This is Lisbon Hostel is located in the old town district of Mouraria, just outside the wall of Castelo de São Jorge, the Lisbon's Castle, with an amazing view over Lisbon's rooftops.
The Mouraria district, one of the oldest "bairros" in Lisbon, birthplace of Fado, is the best example of a neighbourhood where popular Portuguese traditions are still alive, while becoming a meeting point of people from many cultures, from different continents.
We are in walking distance from all interesting points from downtown Lisbon, like the São Jorge's Castle, the old Arab neighbourhood Alfama, Graça and its beautiful view, the commercial Rossio, the trendy Chiado and Bairro Alto and Bica with its brilliant and amusing nightlife.
This is Lisbon Hostel has 7 rooms and 1 apartment named and decorated with typical Lisbon themes - Miradouro, Tejo, Azulejo, Pessoa, Fado, Sardinha & Saudade. To give you the best choice, our rooms are all newly refurbished, with top quality mattresses, central heating and enough space to make your stay a pleasant one.
To keep the original character and unique atmosphere we restored the original lovely wooden floor and door arches and used the traditional Portuguese Azulejo.
In Portugal, the living-room and the kitchen are the heart of the house, where family and friends meet to eat and relax at the beginning and end of the day. Here you will find all the amenities to start your day, beginning with a free continental breakfast and information on how to prepare your discovery of Lisbon. At the end of the day you'll find a big sofa or sun loungers to sit down while meeting people, drinking something from the bar or just reading a book! We also have a cinema, often showing movies filmed in Lisbon, offering just another way to know our city!
The common kitchen is fully equipped with kitchenware and basic cooking ingredients. If you don't feel like cooking, don't worry, we have Portuguese dinners available, made by a Portuguese chef, giving you an opportunity to taste a real home-made traditional meal! Sundays it's live music! We also provide personalized as well as free tours.
Our huge terrace is the hostel's main attraction! Here you can relax and sunbath while writing a postcard, sharing your experiences or just appreciating the view over Lisbon and the bells of Graça Convent. It is the perfect spot to rest after a busy day in the city.
We have internet computers as well as free wireless internet in every room. And our fantastic staff will be here 24-hours to help you with everything.
