It is a small/new hostel, can still smell the new paint! Stayed in one private room and it was quiet/comfortable... totally spotless! It was not very busy, being a new hostel before the main season, I wonder if it would feel cramped if there are loads of people there. The breakfast was not up to Lisbon hostel standards, as most places do things like eggs/pancakes etc, and here was only very basic. Staff helpful. In Lisbon for business and found it ideal calm place to stay. Great location

What seemed like a brand new hostel, with excellent shower and toilet facilities and beautiful view from the balcony and some great rooms for just hanging out. It's located only a short walk from the centre of the city but make sure that you've brought your walking shoes as it is halfway up a very steep incline.

i really enjoyed my stay here because it was nice and clean and quiet. The staff were friendly but not quite as good with the weather forecast or information about public transport. They did go out of their way to help though and i did find i could ask them about anything. The facilities were good and it had everything you need. i also thought the location was great as it was easy to walk to everywhere that i needed to go to.

It is a beautiful brand new hostel, the staff is very nice, we really enjoyed staying there. It is true that the hostel was almost empty, and we had all the space for us, that made our experience even better. I would deeply recommend it. Three observations: 1- Our room was not ready when we got there al 3 pm. 2- We expected a room with views, and of course there are nice views from the hostel, but only from the top floor were we had breakfast. 3- Our room was a little bit cold ...

A charming, brand new hostel in central Lisbon. Very friendly staff, lovely view from the common areas. Kitchen is a bit small. Common areas are nice even thought they are separated (kitchen and one lounge 1st floor, 1 lounge/breakfast room 4th floor). Well-lit, beautiful place for a stay with large, very nice rooms even though they get a bit cold in the winter as often in Portugal. We'd recommend it!

We definitely recommend the Elevator Hostel for everyone who would like to stay some good days in Lisbon. The hostel is well located, near from Metro, Tramway and touristic spots. It is a new hostel, and the rooms are cute and clean. The staff is attentive and help us with information from the city, and from our trip. The breakfast is very good with some Portuguese meals. The kitchen has all clean stuff, and we had dinner benefiting from the amazing view from Lisbon at the dining room.
