Great location. Cheap and basic. Nov 11, 2011
I just wanted to visit Lisbon and was looking for any central place where to sleep. So I booked at Pensão Estação Central for two nights. It was pretty cheap. The location was amazing. The best you could ever find. It’s just 30 seconds from Plaça Rossio and next to the Barrio Alto too. The room was a little small and the toilette even more, but everything was clean. The staff was very kind to us. We had to check out in the morning, but our flight was in the afternoon. They had no problems to keep our luggage. If you want just to visit Lisbon and have no pretentions, this is the right place.

Cheap and basic Oct 23, 2010
Travelling on a budget, this 2** Pensão Estação Central for EUR 40.00 a night seemed a hard to beat choice.

This hostel type of accommodation has a superb location just around the corner from Rossio Square, only a few metres from the metro stop, Rossio train station and the terminus of the airport bus. However it is not so easy to spot from the street.

The hostel is located on the 2nd floor of an apartment building and the hall downstairs looks empty and remote. Only a small sign indicates the presence of the hotel.

You need to press the door bell and then walk up 2 flights of stairs to the reception. (beware if you have lots of luggage!)

The reception is in the small and old-fashioned lounge with old leather armchairs and an old tv. The receptionist first ignored me for several minutes to finish his private phone call. As I was early my room wasn't ready but I could leave my bags at the reception.

When I returned in the afternoon, there was a different receptionist and I was given room 204: a rather small and basic but clean room with a double and a single bed and view towards the street. The bathroom was surprisingly big compared to the size of the room and even had a tub and toiletries.

On weekend nights (Friday and Saturday) there is an awful lot of noise from the street and the nearby bars. Don't expect to sleep before 4 - 5 AM! Even ear plugs won't do! On the Sunday night it was surprisingly calm though and then I slept really well.

The hostel serves no breakfast and guests are asked to pay upfront. Even though the receptionists speak little English, they were helpfull about little things such as providing a plug for the sink and the chance to charge batteries at the reception (as electricity in the room switches off when the key is removed from the socket)

All in all it's a basic but decent place to stay in the center of you're not too bothered by the street noise.
