Lovely staff, good breakfast and location (very close to the famous "Pasteis de Belém" and Monastério dos Jeronimos, close to train station and bus stops where you can take bus to the city centre. But the connection wi fii was a little bit weak, but there was a room with television and comfortable sofas.


Great hostel in a nice area outside central Lisbon. Very friendly staff, good atmosphere, good breakfast and great value.


The price is very good, they offer an awesome breakfast, nice (and handsome -

Good location. Calm . Clean rooms. Nice staff.


A bit far from the center (near torre belem), but busses all night. Good and cheap hostel, but sometimes hostel in the center is only 1 euro more and return ticket to this hostel is much more than this difference.


The hostel is situated outside the city center, which is great if you want more of a peaceful stay and don't plan on going out. The area is quite nice and there is a supermarket and some restaurants within walking distance. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The downside with this hostel is that there aren't a lot of resources to find things to do (maps, free walking tour ads, etc.) That, and the bathroom stalls/showers are clear- yes, you can see most everything.


One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The location is very nice, great facilities, great price and very clean. I have stayed at a few different hostels in Lisbon and People Hostel is for sure the best one.

No one cleaned the women's bathroom over the course of 24 hours. There wasn't any toilet paper either. The dorms do not have locks on them and since there was no age restriction it made you feel uncomfortable because it felt as if it was a hostel for old men.Everyone was nice enough but it was definitely one of my least pleasant hostel experiences to date. The only positive is the price and location


The staff were very helpful and flexibale with no nasty surprises and the free breakfast was very good. However the area around the hostel was very quiet at night with not a lot to do.


awesome hostel! one of the best, but a bit far from the centre


The place is not clean, the bathroons smell bad all the time, the staff don't now to give helpfull information, the lockes are too small. But the livingroon has a nice decoration and it is really close to de famous pastéis de Belém.


Best experience I've had in a hostel so far. Very easy to meet people and the security was second to none (I wish free lockers were a standard everywhere!) Bathrooms were cleaned daily and the patio was lovely to relax on. Won't hesitate to book there again


The STAFF was excellent. They were informative and truly concerned about my time in Portugal. The owner went over and above to please the guests. The hostel has a pretty garden to chill in. Also, the location is near the Monasterio Jeronimino ( uildt in 11th Century. Overall, People Hostel offers great atmosphere and a good breakfast all for a small price.


Cleanliness isn't that good:Neither in bathrooms nor in toilets Toilets and showers have transparent doors so everyone can watch you while you are showering.The staff never smiles- they aren't interested in conversations.Hostel is located very far from the centre(30 minutes).Moreover we can't rent a locker because the guy from the reception hadn't have more keys,although lockers were free in our room.There is also a mess with the rooms:You have to change and nobody tells you anything


Delighted with this hostel. Unfortunately I could not enjoy it to its full potential because I was unwell. But staff were more than helpful, and the fellow guests were really friendly. A+++


Pretty good for the price! Staff just great.


It is great place with great staff!
