guys remember to bring a book and join their book exchange!


Loved the common room in this hostel, so open and funky with all the different bean bags, couches and hammock. Has a great set up, plus having the kitchen available really makes a difference. They provided a great breakfast and the rooms are well equipped. We were welcomed by friendly staff on arrival and they were available to help at any time. We really enjoyed this hostel and wished that we had longer in Lisbon. Highly recommend!”


convenient location, nice staff, clean facilities


I am a regular Customer to Poets, when visiting Lisbon.


A decent hostel. Nice lounge room. Internet was a little slow with many people connected, and wifi didn't work in the rooms. They also accepted a large group of German schoolkids around the age of 16-17 (in a hostel, believe it or not), which definitely detracted from the atmosphere. Otherwise a comfortable stay without issue.


Social events organised by the hospital meant it was really easy for me to meet new people, when I was traveling on my own. I had such a fab time, and the staff were so accommodating and helpful.


Nice hostal, great living room area, good breakfast. Rooms were clean. Bathrooms were clean as well. Location is great, just in front of the Praca Camoes and close to Rua Augusta etc. I can recommend this hostal!


Amazingly clean hostel with wonderful staff. Huge lockable cupboards under the beds, big enough to store away large suitcases and backpacks!

The elevator was broken when we stayed there, since the hostel was on the 5th floor it was little uncomfortable. the location of the hostel is great. but you need ear plugs to sleep with windows open as its kind of loud in the streets at night. the toilets and the bathrooms are in not so good condition.

Hello Dileep, First of all, thank you for your review. As you can imagine the lift is not our property, so we're conditioned to the landlord. We apologize for the inconvenience though. As for the toilets, what was specifically not in good conditions? Thank you in advance!


When i come back at Poets Hostel the only thing i've thought: home sweet home...I suggest to stay here. Thanks to the staff helped me to find an other accomodation when Poets Hostel was full...but the first period i stayed ther was amazing...

Thank you! we hope to see you again and enjoy our tours and everything you can do with us!


The staff here were very friendly and helpful. The only bad thing to say is that it can be pretty noisy when people walk down the wooden floor corridor at night.

A great hostel for relaxing and having a great time. The rooms are clean and modern, and the living space was top notch. Definitely a great place to set some roots and see Lisbon.
