The kind of place that makes you feel like you are part of the family. Great spot and rosa and family takes good care to make you comfortable. This was my favorite stop of about 20. Smells great when you enter and the tapas bar downstairs is also excellent value. A clean room all to yourself at hostel prices!!! fantastic. Thanks Rosa and "sleep like an angel" Peter from Canada.
Jose was very helpful to provide all information for tourists. The facility is good and clean. Like the room and bathroom settings. Just a pity that there is no air conditioning. It was cool to have the balcony doors opened, but the noise from the restaurant below and the street was unbearable. Could not sleep with that much noise.
Very convenient to bus and rail stations. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Thanks!
I wish I could have stayed longer in this place. Rosa and her brother are the best hosts!!
I don't really know how to judge this hostel, as it is not one: it is a hotel, very very affordable. As such it has all the amenities of a hotel (private rooms/bathrooms), but lacks those of a hostel (common area/kitchen/breakfast and so on). But definitively worth it if you are a single traveller or a couple wanting some privacy
The bedrooms are brand new, confortable with nice bathroom! The kitchen is small and there's no real trunk but it's ok. No breakfast. It's a family that manage it and there are really nice and reliable! I recommand this hostel
10 points to the hosts of this hotel! Those people are just the friendliest ever.
Lisboa Hostel is a budget hotel, not a backpackers hostel. You have a room to yourself, with an en-suite, and the tv, but you do not have a common room, hordes of friends that you have not met yet, etc. the landlady could not be kinder, and the bar next door does good tapas.
I would recommend Lisboa Hostal to anyone. Excellent value.

First of all the lady that owns this place is absolutely lovely, and very helpful, and her lovely family all live downstairs and are equally helpful. The place is a bit dated and the bathroom door didn't close but all else was fine. Nice tapas restaurant downstairs for dinner as well.
The staff are great, willing to help with any questions you have. If you have to get up early avoid the rooms in the front as the local cafe is open from 9pm to 1am.
Good Location to start Trips to Algeciras and Gibraltar, very close to the train and busstation. Very familiar athmosphere, i like rosa :)
Go to the tapas bar down stairs, delicious!
Very friendly and helpfull staff! You get what they promise.
I loved this place. I got a single room for a good price. Everything was great. Jose at the front counter seemed to know everything but the next lottery number. It was a $7 round trip to Gibraltar by bus. If I ever get back to Algeciras I won't stay anywhere else.
We found this hostel suited our needs veru well. Clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking is not easy, but there are spaces in the town nearby if you look. There is a space outside the hostel for unloading.

We had a such warm welcome, we will remember it for long !!!!
Returned to the Lisboa after a whirlwind 8 day rip around Morocco to find the same courtesy, the same cleanliness, the same attention to detail and the same high standards of service excellence. I stand by my previous review - this place is a gem and richly deserves its hard-won reputation. 11/10.
