Everything in hostel is brilliant Staff is awesome Breakfast is nice Facilities are awesome as well Tours and information are sifficient and quite good


the best hostel i have ever been, everything was perfect


Very cool hostel, chill vibe. Laundry was on site too. Wifi was decent.


I really liked this hostel so I decided to stay there for two more nights. I don't find any thing to complain about. Very good standard for a reasonable price, clean, well (and quite unusuallly) located, very good breakfast, professional staff always ready to help, quiet at night so I slept very well. I had the chance to meet many nice people there. Room are nice, cosy common room and fully equipped kitchen. I recommend it to all, definitely go back there when next time in Lisbon. Thanks!


Very friendly and helpful staff.Very comfortable and clean beds. Very generous breakfast and relaxing environment. A home away from home !

The atmosphere & location is novel & great. Thanks to the staff for being extremely friendly and helpful and being available at all times - something rare to see in hostels. However for charging as much as we were, facilities like the bathrooms were a major let down. The bathroom size is uncomfortably small and left unclean. The rooms were not cleaned through our entire stay.The kitchen rules of washing one's own vessels does not seem to apply to all and can be highly inconvenient at breakfast.


Pro: Big common space with multiple entertaining facilities; Big kitchen with cooking stuff; Different kinds of tours offered with reasonable price which can help you know the city quickly; Good location Contra: Ordered a twin-bed room, got a four-beds one; The hostelroom is not euipped with an air conditioner because it claimed itself to be environment-friendly, while the guests have to wash their dishes/glasses after using them, although there is a dish washer in the kitchen; Bad breakfast


Very nice hostel, perfect location and the staff is competent and friendly.

It's amazing to stay at Lisbon destination hostel.The location is great, easy access to most important places.The breakfast is delicious Don't miss that:).The staff's are more welcoming and friendly nature.The organised events are good.I would recommend this place to stay in Lisbon for the backpackers.


This hostel is great, great staff, great dinners by inhouse chef Maria! Location is great, couldn't think of a better place to stay in lisbon


Very good hostel, new and well done design, placed in the heart of Lisbon and the most friendly staff ever. For sure I'll recommend this hostel to my friends.


Big hostel in a perfect central location, which belongs together with 2 other hostels in Lisboa. Therefore they can offer a huge variety of activities, e.g. walking tours, pub crawls. Rooms with bathrrom are simple, quiet and sufficient. Recommendable for everyone, who likes big hostels.


It was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed. Friendly staff and great location. I definitely recommend it to everybody planning to visit Lisbon. Obrigada for the wonderful hospitality!! :) Gulce


The location is very convenient, in a beautiful building right in the city centre. The hostel is great it has lots of common space with all sorts of activities, big and equipped kitchen and plenty of natural light. The staff is also very fun and helpful, always coming up with the next big activity for the guests. Thanks guys!


Excellent location, very helpful staff, decent breakfast.


Overall it's a great place to stay but honestly it was under the expectation vs. The existent review. There are certain things to improve i.e. the communication skill of the employes, shower facilities, etc.


To put it simply, but most genuinely - I've never stayed at a more enjoyable hostel than Lisbon's Destination Hostel. LDH creates a natural & friendly environment that promotes community to all travelers, but also provides solitude & peace to allow for rest. The very open common space is excellent for every activity, the bathroom facilities are spotless, the bedrooms are clean & comfortable. Best yet, the staff encourages you to focus on the spirit of exploring the city by offering free tours.


The hostel is located in the Rossio train station (very good to know Lisbon) and it is quite big. The rooms are comfortable and the "bucket" was a very nice idea (each bed has one lamp and one "bucket"). Enough power sockets in the room. Nice breakfast. It was a quick stay in Lisbon so I could not enjoy all the things the hostel offered. I would come back here for sure.


Great hostel -- good facilities, extremely clean, breakfast included, fun vibe, central location, huge rooms with sound blockers for the windows, and individual lockers in each room. The staff was very friendly and helpful and had a lot of good recommendations for what to do in Lisbon.


Beautiful hostel, almost like a hotel. Staff are mostly enthusiastic and the organized events remind me of summer camp or activities for freshman university students in the dorm. Thoroughly clean and comfortable, a great first stop after the cement huts of west Africa for me. It's like a luxury spa vibe.
