It was absolutely great to meet you. Big big hug. Joana


Great central location. Very clean. Really friendly and helpful staff.


The sign could be a bit more prominent. At 1 am my group was walking up and down the street and literally stopped in front of the hostel and had no idea where it was. It wasn't until we were walking up and down the other side of the street that we saw the Lisbon Poets Hostel sign and got in. Maybe have it sticking out from the building rather than glued on the side?

Whitney thank you for giving us your review. We thought about the sign but it's really hard for us to get a permission for it. We hope to have you guys back ;-) Thanks a lot


I had a wonderful time at Lisbon Poets Hostel. The staff were extremely accommodating, friendly, and helpful. The hostel looks just like the pictures show and I was very pleased with the atmosphere and surroundings. I would most definitely stay here again on my next trip to Lisbon!


Great location, which provides sightseeing, shopping, dining and public transport opportunities just going out to the street. The hostel itself is cozy, spacious, clean and providing sense of security also. And on top of that, staff is very organized, friendly and helpful! Highly recommended. :)


Extremely amazing hostel! Very secure, the atmosphere is very warm, staff is proficient, good value for money and breakfast is simple but good and fresh. Definitely coming back!!


Great staff, good breaky, good beds, living room and cheap. What more could you want? The hostel dinner was epic for 10 euros too.


The location of hostel is really good! It's in the center, near to the metro station. The staff is really nice and helpful. The breakfest are fine, but could be more-especially from travellers from other countries than south Europe We met really nice couple from Switzerland-they were amazing! Thank you for putting us in the same room :)


Staff and location are great.


Feel relaxed and comfortable to stay in the hostel. The staff are so nice and Teja is the best (~*~*~). The breakfast is good. Highly recommended!


Me and my group of friends only stayed here for one night, but it was a great experience! The staff was super friendly, the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and it felt extremely homely. Will definitely recommend to all friends!

Loved this place...didn't want to leave.


Poets Hostel is a fantastic place to stay in Lisbon. Located directly next to an underground station, within walking distance of great night life, restaurants, and other area attractions it's ideal. The staff are wonderful hosts, the breakfast great, and the rooms clean, comfortable and spacious. It's also got a great theme with literature and poetry that draws you in even before you fully enter the hostel. Highly recommend and will return again soon!

This hostel is real good because the atmosphere is very peaceful and the bed is big but the only defect is there are few places to charge my phone. The location is perfect, very near to the main street. Very recommended! I would come back if I have chance.
