Loved the staff and the cleanliness of the whole hostel. This is well desired hostel and it's clear why there's nothing to not enjoy.


Top stay, tree house bunks were awesome!! Never taking the wrist band off.

The location is quite nice, not very near to the center but in a nice neighbourhood in the old town. I booked a private room to have a bit more comfort after a long trip, but i didn't really enjoy. The room was so small, the bed didn't even fit in. A lot of the furniture was broken (staff said it was vintage, well you can find vintage stuff that is not broken i guess). The bathrooms are only shower cabins, very small as well, and with bad air circulation, they were always smelly.

The people at this hostel were sincerely nice and helpful people. I really enjoyed my stay overall. I highly recommend!


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.
