i have stayed a few times at the youth hostel in lisbon and liked it because of the good location and the friendly staff.
the hostel has a nice little bar too that is often lively at night.
the rooms are your typical hostel rooms.
basic but ok.
Unique Quality: the staff there is above average when it comes to being helpful to the visitors.
Directions: near marques de pombal.
Lockers are free but don't forget to bring your own lock.
Internet is not free, it's price is double comparing to city's internet cafes.
Although it is huge, the hostel has no kitchen and fridge for travelers, so I wouldn't recommend it for hard-core backpackers.
It´s really good, but a little bit far from the city centre.
Kitchen, livinroom, terrace, Internet, dining room, shared bathrooms, nice stuff...
- 13€ + breakfast with Hosteling International card.
In case you don't have Hosteling International card you´ll have to do one here for 2€.
Unique Quality: Five minutes walking from Parque das Naçoes (Expo'98) and Ponte Vasco da Gama.
ah! and 10 minutes walking from Lisbon Municipal Skatepark!!! Oh yeah!!
Directions: Parque das Naçoes. Oriente metro Station.
As much as the luxury of a fancy Pousada may appeal, really all I need from accommodation is that it is clean, has a decent bed, and hot water. Hostels have an extra plus for me as a single traveller: I get to meet other travellers from all around the world.
This hostel isn't the Hilton, but at 12 euro 50 (including breakfast) it wasn't ever going to be. But the beds were comfy, breakfast was quite decent, the staff were delightful, helpful and accommodating.
I was lucky enough to get great room-mates too. They put up with my snoring, and we even ended up going out to a Fado bar together, and on the last morning of my stay taking a flying visit together to Belem for pastries.
The whole team were just so friendly and helpful; offering advice on what to see and even tracking down an after hours chemist for me. What can I say.... in how many hotels would you sit up till 6am drinking Sangria and talking philosophy with the staff?
Unique Quality: 5 floors of rooms, most rooms had 2 bunks (4 beds) and a storage cupboard. Good firm mattresses. Pillows, sheets and blankets supplied (make your own bed). If you forget a padlock, Lockers are available for 1.50 a day. Curtains nice and heavy. Showers with plenty of hot water.
Breakfast (included in price) was simple; two bread rolls, butter, jam, either a slice of ham or cheese, tea/coffee, cereal and a choice of a boiled egg or tub of yoghurt.
TV with a vast range of stations in the front room. Internet access (1 euro for 15 min), a bar (good prices too but don't try the pizza) and living room (A bit bare, but a quiet space to escape to). They have a bookshelf filled with an extremely eclectic range of books in multiple languages that you can borrow if you pay a deposit.
It is really easy to get to by public transport. It may not be flash and fancy, but it was a great place to stay and meant I could spend my money on other things!
Directions: Airport bus (91) stops right around the corner: just tell the bus driver where you want to go. Train stop "Picoas" is literally on the same street. 10 minutes walk from Marques de Pombal (large landmark and starting point for most tour buses).
Double bedroom =42 Euros
Multiple bedroom=15 euros
Unique Quality: The Lisbon Youth Hostel has been strategically built near the main arteries of the city. You can get anywhere in no time, be it by bus, tube, or in your own car.
Directions: R. Andrade Corvo, 46
Tel: 21 353 26 96
Fax: 21 353 75 41
15 Euros in a dormitory.
Unique Quality: Facilities for the disabled, bar, common room, canteen, lockers, internet access, public phone and lift.
Can someone recommend cheap but clean hostel in Lisbon?
What is the IYFH hostel (Pousada de Juventude de Lisboa) in the
Rua Andrade Corvo like?
I reserved a room there for next week but then stumbled on a really bad review... anyone have some experiences?
When I was there a month ago, I stayed at the Global Teixia Pension (spelling is off) in the Barrio Alto. This neighborhood has very hip and trendy restaurants and bars, however, there are a lot of sketchy characters too. Try not to walk alone at night but because it is a popular hangout area, there are lots of people around on the weekends. Global had the nicest staff. Rooms are clean but small. I stayed in a single w/o bath and paid EUR15/night. There is no curfew. Friendly negotiate your room rate and you may get a lower rate cause it is low season and the staff is nice.
The York House probably costs more than you want to spend on this trip ... but when you have a few more Escudos, try it. A small, elegant hotel built in a converted convent and the location is great - particularly if you are in Lisbon to see Art. Take time to visit Sintra if you can ... Enjoy.
the hostel that you rserved is a bit run down, but it has very freindly staff.
there is a new pousada de juventude at the expo 98.
Hotel Ibisis: good, clean and cheap...
Just ask for it in any ntourism facility...
