Hostelworld says:

Hostelworld guests rated Travellers House as the Best Hostel Worldwide in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, and it's not hard to see why. Hostelworld visitors frequently cite the 'lovely atmosphere' as one of their favourite aspects of the hostel, saying it has a 'very chilled and relaxed environment' and is 'incredibly welcoming'. This is no doubt down to the staff, variously described by our users as 'down to earth', 'extra nice' and 'like a family welcoming you in to their home'. We like that if you need to get online you can borrow one of their available iPads.

Property Information:

The Travellers House is ideally located in the most historical and central area of Lisbon (Baixa), within walking distance to all major attractions and interesting spots of the city, with a superb transport network at your door.

In our 250-year-old building, we invite our fellow travellers to relax in our music lounge, enjoy a film in the TV/DVD room or read our books and surf our mega-fast internet, in the reading lounge.

We appreciate the importance of clean facilities; therefore, we'll be cleaning all day long, making sure everything is spotless.

Our facilities include bathrooms for men and for women, hot showers 24 hours a day, four common rooms (dining room, Music lounge, TV/DVD area, reading lounge), and free use of the kitchen.

Our features include free individual lockers and locks, free towels, linen and duvets, free coffee and tea all day, free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and free satellite TV and films.

To help you get around, we've got a book exchange, free maps and advice and free access to guide books from all around the world. There's also free luggage storage.

Owned and managed by travellers, we designed this hostel together in order to provide you with the best stay in one of the most picturesque cities of Europe. Enjoy a friendly, fun and intimate atmosphere for young travellers, hopefully making you feel at home.

Besides the Travellers House, we have just renovated a historic building 10 minutes from the hostel, the 'Travellers House - Studios', which includes four charming studio apartments. The apartments have all the perks a modern traveller can wish for. Take a look at the pictures in the apartments section on Hostelworld, and contact us for any additional information.

  • Travellers House says

    What puts our hostel ahead of the rest is that we truly care for the city of Lisbon and like to bring its culture closer to our guests. Even our building is a 250-year-old typical Portuguese building in an unforgettable location, making it a unique experience. We're on the main pedestrian street in the historical centre; all the main attractions are near - Baixa, Chiado, Alfama, Belém.
    Our staff put their soul into their work and we offer a lot of extras to guests, like free breakfast, towels, bed linen and duvets, individual lockers and safe boxes, free luggage storage and coffee and tea all day.
    For fun, guests can join our evening activities, relax on the sofas with iPads or take a ride around the Old Town on a Segway. We all have our favourite spots in the city but I usually tell our guests to take advantage of the viewpoints! Lisbon has so many, it would be impossible not to get a good view over the city or the river.

    Couldn't have picked a better place to stay and I would go back given the chance in a heartbeat. I thought that the Travellers House was nicer than many hotels I have stayed in within the US. The location can't be beat as it is right near the Plaza Rossio and Plaza Commercio. On top of that, the place is clean and charming with superb services and staff. One staff member even came back to the hostel to take my friends and I out on his night off because he wanted us to have a great experience.

    If I ever return to Lisbon I will definitely be staying here! It's right in the middle of everything. Walking distance from bars, monuments, shopping, and the water. The hostel itself is great and the FREE breakfast is wonderful. The staff is also beyond helpful. We wanted some tips for Lisbon and a day trip to Sintra and they sat down with us and highlighted places on the map to go and even how to get there. Thanks for making our stay so great!
