The bed wasn't comfy, the spring mattress was really noisy. At the first night I went to take a shower and the shower head was broken. The whole bathroom stood flooded. There were no bath amenities. This was a tiny room just beside the front desk.

It is extremely affordable and has everything i required, i.e, a lift, free wifi and an english speaking receptionist (in this case 24 hrs). The rooms are no great shakes...but not unclean or anything. There are two metro stations within walking distance (well because Lisbon is all undulating and has cobble stones, so with luggage those stations seem a bit...

Booked to stay at Residencial Mar dos Acores. However, upon arrival we were told our room was in Joao XXI. We weren't too worried about quality though as we only needed somewhere cheap to stay during Nos Alive festival so this wasn't really an issue. Location is slightly dubious with prostitutes frequenting the street outside. Bathroom smelt of drains when...

If You go to visit Lisbon, and do not intend to stay in the hotel this is good place. Central location, near tram and metro. I recommend the restaurant just...

We stayed at this hostel as it appeared to be good value for money, but it really was very basic, and we could hear the comings and goings of all the residents, plus the road noise, meant that we got almost no sleep. If you are very young, and will be coming back late at night, and making noise, then...

The location of this hostel is pretty bad. The nearest metro is about 10-15 minutes away. The rooms are relatively small (for 2 people) AND what ticked me off the most is I got accused and charged 20 euros for damaging their mattress. When they told me I had to pay up the receptionist was not able to show me...

The room was comfortable and clean but had no kettle or hairdryer, i had e mailed in advance to ask about the facilities and was told that there was an area that we could use a kettle and hairdryers were available at the reception desk. We decided to take a kettle...

The hotel/hostel was basic but had all you needed, it was clean, comfy, good sized bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location within 15mins walk of the old centre of Lisbon and the same to the new district. There was a steep incline back from the old town. The nearest metro station was 5 mins walk away, also there...

“Ask for a room with a window overlooking the street, not an inner well - and not close to the reception desk, as the sound-proofing is poor.”
