The location is perfect, right next to the bars. One thing: there is a huge steep hill to climb if you come by the metro station... Overall good.


We had booked BA Hostel the night before we were flying into Lisbon and we couldn't have been luckier. The staff was amazing and so very helpful. The beds were comfortable, the facilities were clean and easily accesible and the location of the hostel was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the last three days of our journey through parts of Eurpoe and would definitely recommend the BA Hostel to all other travelers!!!

I loved my stay here! This hostel is in a great location for those wanting to hang out at night. Not recommended for light sleepers!


The staff is very helpful and will help guide to where you are supposed to be. They are very lnowledgeable of the area and speak English very well. If you need a refresher in Portuguese, they can also help you with that.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. My boyfriend and I could leave the passports and money in the room without any worries. The breakfeast was simple but is good, enough to start the day. The bathrooms were clean and we felt very comfortable in the room.

A very basic hostel, helpful staff. The common facilities could be better. Nobody seems to use the kitchen. There are not enough showers. Breakfast very basic, some fruit or vegetables would improve the quality a lot. Wifi is pretty good. It can get quite noisy at night. Not the best hostel to meet people.
