I moved to Lisbon at the start of September, I spent one week in central Lisbon then saw the advert for this place and I've been here ever since, it seems everyone else has been here for months too. It's 3 terraced houses joined together with a friendly atmosphere and staff who speak excellent English. There are regular events like meals and games nights etc but it's not a 'party' hostel (I'm too old for that sh*t). Most people here are remote workers/young adults staying long term as the monthly rates are very reasonable off-season. There is a co-working room and fast WiFi at an infinite variety of local cafés. There are multiple kitchens meaning there's always plenty of room to cook. Everything is very clean and you get your washing done for free (if you're a long-term resident). Lots of beaches, cafés, bars, restaurants, gyms and supermarkets nearby and the train station is a 7-8 minute walk away and gets you to Lisbon in 35 mins. The main reason that lured me here was the parking which in central Lisbon would've cost me €150 a month (or a broken window every few weeks), here there is free on-street parking right outside the guesthouse and you couldn't possibly find a safer neighbourhood. I couldn't be happier with the place and think I'm definitely winning.

Stayed for 2N whist in Cascais. I stayed in one of their private rooms with access to a bathroom shared with the surrounding rooms. The location was good, in pretty close proximity to central Cascais. The floor of my room was not of a level of cleanliness that I would expect. It was noticeably in need of a vacuum underfoot. No breakfast is laid in but there are kitchens available. Overall, the price is high compared to what you might expect at other hostels. I note from looking at the contributions of past reviewers that that there have been quite a lot of people who have really enjoyed their stay, so much so that they have joined Tripadvisor especially to post 5* reviews of both Ljmonade Hostel and Eco Ljmonade, so in all fairness that shows they must have enjoyed staying at both these venues whilst in Cascais.

The stay at the hostel was amazing and the staff and athmosphere is just like a family away from home. A lot of activities the hostel gives during the week like dinner for free, hikes, and beach days with the guests. Other activities they have are yoga and surf that you have to try it out. The cleaning well done and the room as very nice, they respect the cleaning procedures during this pandemic. Overall was an excellent stay.

I loved everything about this place! The location is amazing, the staff does all the possible to provide the guests the best experience, the decoration is colorful and happy. I shared a dorm with two other girls and they eventually became my partners to explore Lisbon, Belem and Costa da Caparica. It is a really good place to stay and open possibilities to get the best of your trip. I do recommend Ljmonade and I sure want to return because I still have places around to visit!

The hostel was exactly as advertised. We had a wonderful time. The weather was best so far and we will definetly come back. This was my 9th time in portugal and my partner's 8th. We decided to try a hostel for a change and we couldn't make a better choice. Everyone speaks english fluently and are all very nice. The rooms are very clean and tidy, and we were pleased to know that all safety measures were being striclty followed. I was happy with the organization of surf activities. My partner decided to do some yoga in a nearby park. We had dinner with other guests who we came across with. It was a fantastic experience and would recommend to anyone who wants to have a good relaxing time in such a lovely location near the sea.
