Rossio Patio Hostel Lisbon Reviews
Great new hostel in Lisbon, excellent dinner too Sep 02, 2011
Lisbon is known for having many excellent hostels often leading the top ten in the world. Rossio Patio is the second and sister hostel to Alfama Patio both bookable online through Hostelbookers.com. Though new the owners have learned their lessons from their first outing so guests are treated to a well trained and friendly international staff. An immense central open area covered by a glass ceiling makes for a comfortable area to mingle with dorms and privates surrounding the courtyard. Bathrooms are also large with plenty of hot water.
Located in the Rossio train station one can not hear the trains bound for Sintra but the traffic outside is evident from the dorms. Still, the central location is ideal with two metro lines close, the airporter bus and city buses just a stone throw away as is the main Rossio Plaza, the main tourist office and dozens of restaurants.
The price is great and consistent with the other great hostels. Breakfast is hardy and there is an optional dinner by an their chef who makes a different meal each night for just 7 euros as of Sept 2011. A deal!
Tours to the beach, Sintra, the flea market and Belem are priced right and occur often.
The best feature are the owners and their staff. Excellent advice and great smiles from many different countries.
