This was my second time at alfama patio hostel and it delivered yet again. My mum and I stayed here and had the most relaxing time. The patio is beautiful, the staff are very helpful and friendly (particularly Bruno and Oscar), just a super chill vibe all around. The hostel is in a charming, non-touristy neighbourhood a short walk away from the centre, facilities were very clean, and though it is a mellow hostel, definitely opportunities to party if that's what you're looking for. A+!

The position is perfect: in the middle of the Alfama. The staff guys are nice and freindly. The atmosphere is fantastic: there is always some activity organized for the guests. There is a terrace with a great river view and also a guitar!!!!! :D .....i definitely cannot find defects to this hostel!!!!

We just wanted to say thanks! Top quality hostel! Super nice people. Really cool layout. Right in the middle of all the action and fado. Nicest and sweetest cleaning ladies!!! We had a supreme time - we got shushed at night for drinking and talking too loud though but overall extremely pleasant. Would recommend 10/10.

Thank you for helping me to have a great trip to Lisbon. Highlights were the street art tour, the daily pancakes for breakfast, and the new friendships I made.

We absolutely loved this hostel. Amazing setting, lovely rooms and dorms, friendly and helpful staff, and great value for money. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Lisbon. The only small issue was that the shower in the bathroom by room 7 didn't work very well. Everything else was amazing!

The hostel was really nice. The dorm rooms were a bit small and the ensuite bathroom even smaller. We didn't have light in the bathroom for two days. Breakfast was great. Staff was quite friendly. The location was ok, especially if you like fado.

Overall an OK hostel, nice outside spaces, a good breakfast and organising excursions etc. But I was expecting something better of a top Lisbon hostel. There was a booking mix up, not too professional but nice staff,top bunk bed is difficult to climb to and has no curtain but there is a small safe and a light nearby. Generally gave me a run down impression, there was a wire and nail hanging from the wall next to my bed, garbage and flies in the entrance and a very steep 15 min walk from metro.

Great cosy little place that's tucked away in old town! There's a patio with a view and really friendly staff :) it is a little out from the main sight seeing area but if you follow the team tracks down it takes like 10-15 mins not a big deal at all!

This hostel was located in such a lovely spot, having breakfast (yummy free pancakes!) on the patio in the sunshine with a view over alfama was so nice. The famous tram route that everyone does #28 when they visit Lisbion goes right past the front door, and the staff were very friendly and helpful too, I missed my flight on the Friday and had to cancel at short notice, they were so great and didn't charge me! Would highly recommend! Only wished I could have stayed longer :)

This would have been perfect if I was looking for a Bed & Breakfast type place. Very friendly and quiet atmosphere, I would recommend it to couples or those not looking for a typical hostel atmosphere. I am a solo traveler, and I didn't feel like it was very easy to meet people, although they do activities with the sister hostels so I was able to meet people staying elsewhere. It was very nice, just not exactly the more social atmosphere that I was looking for :)

I only stayed here one night, arriving in Lisbon super late. It's not easy to find in the dark, but I passed the hostel a few times when I was just exploring the city, so once you get your bearings you should be fine. The staff is amazing and makes you feel like the hostel is home. Breakfast is great: crepes with jam/butter/Nutella and some fresh sliced fruit. Also, espresso machine 24/7! Loved the private hobbit hole beds, and the atmosphere was super chilled (a good break from partying).

Great place to stay, right in the heart of the prettiest district of Lisbon. The BBQ and sangria night was awesome. Each bed has its own locker, nice showers, excellent pancake breakfast....

Great views from the hostel. Good breakfast in the morning and dinner you can buy in the evening for cheap. Staff was very friendly and offered many activities. Rooms were decent but something about the way water runs through the pipes makes a squealing noise so wear earplugs to keep from being woken up whenever anyone flushes a toilet. You have access to their partner hostel facilities which was an awesome way to meet more people or to get off your feet when across the city.

Wonderful hostel, great staff, lovely location and amazing breakfast! The rooftop has a beautiful view, and the atmosphere is awesome. Loved the place, will definitely come back. I'm a girl travelling alone. The neighborhood felt safe at night, and the female dorm is great.

Loved the quirky character of the place, especially the hobbit hole style bunk beds! The whole style and decor of this hostle was so cute and artsy. Will consider coming back here for longer next time!! Very helpful and friendly staff. Loved that there were fresh crepes for breakfast! It was a great place with great service. Definately a hidden gem :)
