This Is Lisbon Hostel Reviews
Lovely hostel in the city centre Jul 02, 2012
I booked myself into 'This is Lisbon Hostel' for my week's journey for interviews to Lisbon in July 2012. I had no prior reviews form this place so I didn't know what to expect.
The hostel is very easy to locate as it's situated right by the castle on the street that circles it (Rua da Costa do Castelo) which means that you right in the city center on the hill. The area is very quiet, feels quite suburban, due to limited car access on this narrow cobble-stoned street.
The reception is manned 24-hours so you can gain entry to the hostel by using the buzzer by the front door (no need for a key). Although the check-in doesn't start till 14:00, I was conveniently taken to my room about 11:00 (as it was already cleaned) and made very welcome from the first moment I entered the hostel. You can always count on the reception staff to provide you any information you require :)
You have a choice of rooms or dorms with or without the balcony. I had the one that led straight to the extensive balcony overlooking the city. Amazing views to start your day.
The hostel offers shared bathrooms with showers, toilets, kitchen and dinning area plus the balcony. All linens are provided and you can hire a towel for as little as €1. Everything is nicely decorated in the homely style and cleaned on daily basis. Plenty pots, pans and cutlery in the kitchen and access to fridge.
All tea and coffee, as well as breakfast, included in the price. Always fresh and tasty. You can also purchase additionally a day before, traditional Portuguese dinner which is prepared fresh by a home cook.
Free wi-fi access with very strong signal everywhere plus 2 computer stations with 24/7 access to internet.
For my 6-night stay I paid about £95, which was well worth it.
I would recommend the hostel as a perfect place to stay in the city.
