Pros: - LOVELY staff, all of them really sweet. I thought they were just super friendly travellers because they blend in so well. - Bedrooms, toilets,...

Family run business. I liked this place - hosts/ owners were welcoming and friendly - made me feel at home. Their suggestions and recommendations for places to visit and things to do were awesome too. The beds were comfortable and rooms were spacious - good value for money. I would definitely stay here again.

Lisbon Old Town is the friendliest hostel to date. Warm and inviting, whether it's talking to the guests or hanging out with the staff. I believe the positive energy emanating from the staff creates an inclusive environment for all. Shout out to Eric working the front desk at night and the amazing Dolores for being an angel to us all...

Uepá Ray, I love reviews of first timers in hostels, especially if they are so complete and positive.
