Great location! Very close to Metro, yellow train, water and train to other towns and cities. Amazing, friendly staff. Be prepared to walk a steep hill to access hostel, but I loved this aspect. Amazing views and very clean. It's a little loud at night, but that's only because of the available nightlife nearby as well as World Cup excitement. Overall, it was well worth it to stay at this hostel.

I was very happy with all the stuff at TheElevatorHostel. They were really positive and helpful, Greeted with a beautiful smile and a friendly character, he helped me carry my suitcase over the very steep hill where the building is located about halfway. The place is new and you can tell, as it looks clean and the facilities are in nice condition. I checked-in without trouble and after some friendly conversation I was shown the shared room I was to stay in, very luminous and with balcony with a

Great modern hostel in a great central area. Staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome.

The hostel was beautiful with a great view of the city from the top floor. The location was great, just close enough to the city center but not directly above the loud bustling tourist-filled streets. Fabio at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful, and gave us some insider tips and cultural/historical info about Lisbon. The internet did not function in our room, nor on the top floor main area, which was inconvenient. But considering the price, I think this hostel is well worth it

Really helpful staff and brand new, simple rooms. We had a little terrace of ou own, which was a great suprise! Good value for money and relaxed, peaceful atmosphere.

Hostel was very centrally located. Breakfast was more than adequate with fantastic views over the city. Our room (double, en-suite) was clean, light and comfortable; the shower was hot and we had our own outside seating area. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel is about a minutes walk up a steep tram track.

Perfect location, lovely breakfast room with stunning view of the city. Private room as nice as a hotel for a great price. Highly recommend.

They will not want my opinion for it was already told. First they are not all that professional. Internet is not good as people have to work in the hallways to get internet. They had a ratio of 1 complete private bathroom per I think it was 10-11 beds with one of them not working when we were there for about 10 days. Very small kitchen, small common area with no electrical plugs to use, and you have to walk up a very steep walk to get to the hostel. Too small for # beds. Others not room more

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

Hey! Thanks. We do our best to get you guys happy. So far we have stuck to our concept and do eveything Portuguese. We always have a choice of different jams for breakfast, often homemade, home baked cake, cheese and ham, different hot and cold drinks, cereal and fresh fruit. Planned to introduce some daily 'cultural breakfasts' soon: scandinavian with herring, spanish with the garlic and tomato toast, british with bacon 'n eggs and american with pancakes and maple syrup :-) Came back and try it

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.
