We booked two beds for the girls' dorm, which is really beautiful and comfortable. We did enjoy a lot since the first moment, and it's hard to say good bye to such a great hostel! The shower room and the restroom are also great.

Our group absolutely loved our stay at Home Lisbon Hostel. It really felt like home. All the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Our stay at this hostel was the highlight of our trip through Portugal. The hostel is in great condition and has a very charming character. All the meals at the hostel were outstanding. The activities offered were also excellent! The only small area for improvement would be the occasional smell in the bathroom but it's clean otherwise.

I had the most amazing time. Already recommended it to coworkers, friends and some random people at the airport. :) I could go down the list of all the things that make this place special (cozy ambiance, friendly staff, delicious food, privacy-curtained beds), but it really just comes down to the community that's here. The people who run this place set the tone, and everyone enjoyed being a part of this traveler's community for as long as they stayed.

Possibly one of my favorite places on earth. Seriously, I loved it here. What's not to love? There's just something about this place that can't be quantified in a single review. Mamma is the soul of the operation, and when she hands you your plate or gives you a hug you know it's real, that this family really cares about what they do and that, for them, it's not just a business. It's about people. Amazing food, cozy atmosphere and great new friends keep people coming back time after time.

Location was excellent, just a short walk from everything. The staff was the most friendly I have ever seen, making you really feel part of a family. The atmosphere was the best I have ever seen as well, especially during dinner time, when everyone gathers to eat the excellent Mama's food with plenty of beer and all kinds of wine! Showers were great, spacious and clean.Amazing value for money, great breakfast, fast wi-fi, confy beds. Dinner for just 10 euros totally worth it.Totally recommended

It was perfect! The hostel is super central with everything in walking distance, it is very clean and the staff is so lovely. It definitely did feel like a home. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm for the first time and even had a great stay- beds are comfortable, the rooms are big and I would stay there again any time. DO NOT book any other hostel than this one in Lisbon :)

Don't stay anywhere in Lisbon but here! This hostel is very clean, has a great location and very friendly staff. And then there's the added bonus of mama who cooks homemade amazing Portuguese meals every night!

Very nice hostel for sure. Dinners were awesome and staff was excellent and friendly. Only thing that I didn´t enjoy was the barcrawl provided by the hostel. 13 euro for 2 cheap drinks and one mixed welcome shot is not the best deal but ok, but we were walking to the last club 30 minutes and then after waiting in line to get in for another 30 minutes they told us we can´t get in because it is full.dissapointing

I really can't fault this hostel. The staff were very friendly, the location is perfect in the centre of Lisbon and really easy to get to from the airport by public transport(metro). There are walking and day tours. The hostel is very clean, the beds are very comfortable. Finally, the dinners are fantastic, both for the food and for the atmosphere. They even caters for vegetarians, which was a welcome relief for me. Thank you so much for an excellent stay! I would love to come back some time.

The hostel is excellent. Mama's dinner is great - easily better and more plentiful than anything you'll find for that price elsewhere. The staff were really friendly. Location was within an easy walk of the entire city centre and reasonably close to both Rossio and Cais do Sodré stations (for Sintra and Caiscais). Walking tour is very good - there are two different ones and I did both.

I don't know where or how to start. This hostel is amazing. The place is spotless, has great vibe that supports a social atmosphere, Mama makes a crazy good dinner (even turkey for Thanksgiving!), and the people that work here are amazing. I spent hours chatting and hanging out with them. If I could, I would live here. Special thanks to Mama, Micas (even though she turned down my drunken proposal), Andre X2, Diana, and Joao!

Words can't express how much I'm in love with this hostel. I was supposed to stay two weeks but ended up staying three! If it's possible to rate over 100% I would! Home is really just like home. An amazing atmosphere, extremely clean and the staff are phenomenal! Mammas dinners are delicious every night. Everyone is so welcoming. There's no place like Home. I'll be back :)
