Really nice quiet Hostel, and the owner Anna was incredibly helpful and kind. The inner city is a 20min tram ride away (leaves outside the door), but Belém is a great area and you can get to lots of sights and great cafes and restaurants within a few minutes on foot. We'll be back!


Lovely, clean, modern hostel with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Belem is a 10-minute bus ride from the metro (not too inconvenient) and a popular day destination in itself. I personally enjoyed using the area as a base as it is more peaceful than central Lisbon. One word of warning if you are on a diet- this hostel is a few doors down from the no.1 custard tart shop in the city!


It was a great stay. The staff was really helpful and I am quite sorry that I didn`t manage to leave an entry in zhe guestbook as I left very early in the morning and had to hurry. Sorry for that, but next time I write something in. Excellent location (Belem). Not directly in the city center but easy to get there. And next to the famous Belem pastries!!!


The Famous Crows hostel is a very clean hostel with helpful and friendly staff. The hostel itself is somewhat disjointed as you have to go up and down and through many doors. The hostel is in Belem which is about a 15-20 minute bus ride from downtown Lisbon.


My mother and I really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were extremely helpful with giving us advice on sites to visit and how to get around. We had a problem with one of the blinds in our room and they fixed it immediately at no extra cost. I would recommend this hostel for those looking for a more relaxed, quiet stay in Lisbon. For young people looking to party I'd suggest staying in the city. Loved this hostel and will definitely re-vist soon!

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Famous Crows and would highly recommend to anyone passing through Lisbon, especially for those interested in the Belem historic area.
