Some staff are very friendly and helpful, some staff are a bit rude and unhelpful. Breakfast selection was excellent, beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean. Lots of great touches, like free wine at sunset, and the traditional Portuguese food for magusto was excellent.

The hostel has a nice roof top terrace with a pool from and for a hostel superior view of the the sea. Breakfast and kitchen is also quite good. Still my experience was negative as I figured that my bed sheets were covered with many huge blueish spots of some liquid, mold, or some other disgusting material. I didn't see that until next morning as I arrived late and didn't want to disturb others with light. The bath rooms were dirty, alright for a hostel, but below average for Lisbon hostels.

The kind of place that makes you want to extend your stay for another night, if not a whole month! Great hostel, great vibes and great people.

Best hostel I have been to! I met so many awesome people here and felt right at home. The rooftop was amazing! Warm sunny days in the pool and rainy days under the dome with good beats and friends. I highly recommend a stay here!

I really liked Sunset Destination Hostel! It was just off the path enough to be quite quiet while sleeping but close enough to the action for some good nights out. The rooftop terrace is awesome and the dome can be fun. My favorite part is the events they organize with the other Destination hostels; I had a blast doing the BBQ and pub crawl. Also, that breakfast is amazing! I only wish they had curtains for thw top bunks. And a spa!

There are so many nice things about the hostel, and overall I am very satisfied with the experience. However, the drinking water at the hostel didn't taste good. The two friends with whom I was traveling told me the same. I think you should install a proper water filter. Apart from that, we are very well satisfied.

Sunset Destination was the best hostel I've ever stayed in: the atmosphere was lovely, there were amazing activities that got the entire hostel socializing. The roof is incredibly cozy with a great inexpensive bar and precious little pool overlooking the ocean. Would definitely come back - we had such a fun experience! I would recommend the hostels bar crawl if you want to see some cool local spots and meet new people!

Location is good. Except the cocktail bar, there aren't nothing special in this hostel. Some hostel staff were friendly, but the rest aren't not.

3rd best hostel i ever stayed in (if you wanna know, #1 is indian house in new orleans, and #2 dreaming rome in rome)! Perfect location, cant be closer to the metro, the old town (chiado and alfama), the banks of the Tagus. Very nice staff (especially Miguel) and breakfast (homemade crepes!!), very secure, and maybe the best view on the bridge ! Plus it's cheap, and there are bathrooms both inside and outside the rooms. Itonly lacks an inside common room

Hello, Thank you for taking time to leave such great comments. We are glad to be in your ultimate top 3! We are happy you enjoyed your stay and especially the location. We consider our reception to be part of our common area, where people often spend time playing chess or reading a book and we now have our covered outside dome available to lounge in as well. We hope to see you back with us in Lisbon soon! :) Best regards, The Sunset Destination Family

Visiting the Hostel of the Sun was pleasant. The staff were very lovely (even remembering my name!) and welcoming. The 5 bed dorm was comfortable with plenty of space and air conditioning as well. Overal the hostel was clean. The breakfast was basic with white bread/crisp bread with spreads as well as cereal for breakfast. While I was there, I was fortunate enough to have a free dinner of pasta which made it a perfect time to socialise. The common spaces and bar also great areas to socialise.

Great atmosphere and location. The metro leads right up to it, has great ocean views. The terrace was awesome, a great place to relax and meet new people. Located near bars and delicious food. The staff was extremely friendly. They set aside breakfast for me before my early morning flight out, extremely accommodating,.

Hello, Thank you for your great review! We try to accommodate our guests the best we can. Just because you have an early flight doesn't mean you should miss out on breakfast! (Not the full breakfast, of course, but let us know when you have to leave early!) We are glad you were able to meet new people :) We can't wait for you to visit us again! Best regards, The Sunset Destination Family

Very good hostel. Need something done? They are on it! One of the best I've stayed at. Our room was a 6 p bed and it was HUGE, with lockers, AC and chargers and lights with curtains on your bunk (no curtains on top bunks). Right above a train station, convenient and still quiet. Tasty BBQ on sat night and a funny DJ. Oh and the pancakes are delicious! Would stay here again.

Absolutely no complaints. I was a solo female traveler and felt very welcome. Although I chose to spend most of the time on my own, I was always given recommendations as to where to go, what to see and what to eat. I did attend one of the walking tours which I highly recommend as well, at least on day one to get a lay of the land and immerse yourself into the city.
