Awesome place to stay!


Amazing place with great breakfast, actually functioning wifi in the rooms, and even curtains to make your bunk more private! Also took the walking tour with Alex and it was so worth it! Very personable and had a free taste of ginjinha after!


There was nothing wrong about this hostel - it is clean and has everything you need - but nothing remarkable either. Good location, close to everything you need, and very clean rooms and bathrooms.


They love their work but not their coasters.

I think it is a nice hostel and it will get normaly more points for atmosphare and price but i had been there the night bevor the champion final with to much drunken german people. The hostel by it self is a very nice place and the staff is even very friendly. i have to visit it again at another time.


Bedrooms were the best thing about it along with location. Some staff members weren't the friendliest. Great breakfast though as they have in-house cook.

The Golden Tram hostel is right in the centre of everything and you can walk to nearby tourist attractions and popular neighbourhood Bairro Alto which is full of really great bars and restaurants. The staff at the hostel were really helpful and helped us with any questions we had. It was really clean and modern. I will definitely be staying here again if I go back to Lisbon!!


Longest checkout I ever encountered in my whole backpacking journey! The female staff was talking on the phone non-stop, oblivious to travelers who want to check out, and in turn delayed our itinerary, made us miss certain walks and required us to make quite some changes to our schedule. The receptionists always seem busy with lots of paperwork. Nevertheless, the location is very good and facilities were adequate.

This is an excellent place to stay in while in Lisbon- very friendly, clean, near city center and secure. The staff were lovely and i rate it 100% - would love to return there again soon


Would benefit guests to have proper use of kitchen. Access to stove, microwave as well as oven would be appreciated.

Golden tram was amazing! First hostel I was ever in and by far the best one so far! The staff were very nice. They were always willing to help me if I was trying to find someplace in Lisbon. It was very easy to meet other travelers.

Everything is good, but only bath water is too cold.
