Double bunkbeds, pancakes for breakfast, lovely staff, do I need to say more? I had a great stay at Urban Garden, and I would reccommend it to anyone who is looking for a homy, relaxed and fun hostel. You can have a quiet night or go out on a pub crawl with the staff, hang out on the little terrace and meet other travellers. The staff is really friendly and outgoing, always in for a chat of a game of beerpong. Recommended!

Places you stay impact a city heaps so basically, if you´re ready to love Lisbon, stay here. Everything was excellent, from the giant beds, cleanliness, security, and super delish pancakes for brekkie every morning, through to the gnarly staff and rad common areas which made striking up a convo crazy easy especially for a solo traveller like myself. It´s got a perfect mix of crazy nights and chilled out vibes and even check in beers; how could you go wrong. Keep up the good work, cats:) Shae x

This hostel is awesome! I've stayed for 3 nights with a friend and we really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was excellent, there was always something happening in the common room and we had many nice conversations with other guests. The staff was very friendly and helpful and gave us a few good tipps what todo in Lisbon. I would definitively recommend the walking tour, it was super awesome. Dinner (5€) was mostly portuguese food and pretty tasty. Greetings to Will & team, keep up the good work.! :)

We had an amazing stay at the Urban Garden Hostel. They made us feel incredibly welcome and helped us with things like booking taxis etc .We came back for a final day stay after boom festival and it felt like coming home! The feeling of community and family is great and the pancake breakfast is amazing!! We will definitely be returning again and will recommend to anyone coming to Lisbon. Thank you for your amazing hospitality Tamara, Rebecca, Patrick, John and Will Love Tammy, Joe + Joie xxx

Totally recommend the free walking tour with Kate! She is knowledgeable about the city and has a great spunky personality. Awesome environment - there was a huge lounge so it was very easy to talk to people and I had no probably making friends there (I was a solo female traveler). One of the nights there was a guitar jamming session and it was nice to hear the guests play and share their musical talent. The staff really cares for you and are super sweet. Thank you for the pancakes!!

Only 2 very small issues, the showers are pretty tight.. the showers themselves are nice good hot water and pressure, just hanging clothes and towel and changing can be a bit tricky. 2nd thing was the top bunks, I stayed in two different beds and both made noise from small movements. I don't no if it is every bed as I didn't notice it while sleeping, just noticed mine sometimes was uncomfortable with changing positions while sleeping to not wake anyone else up.

If you're a vegetarian there is no 5€ comune meal that you can eat. There was no wifi in my dorm... Other than that very good hostel with nice decoration. The night watch is chill to hangout with.

We intended to only stay one night here, but quickly changed our stay to two when we realized how comfortable and inviting this place was. The free pancake breakfast, huge beds, friendly atmosphere, and Friday night party made our stay in Lisbon an unforgettable one. Much thanks for the good time! -Hannah and Bella

Information about Dinner was a bit off. Were told Dinner was about 6 pm, actually was at 9 pm. Everything else was super awesome ! Was pretty hard to find the Hostel but after that it was great. Great Staff all over the place.

I was surprised at how enjoyable my stay was here. The staff was really friendly and the guests in the hostel were great as well! Really liked how clean the place was and I was shocked to find that for about $20 a night I was placed in a 10 mixed dorm, with a double sized bed! Amazing. Would definitely recommend others to come here. It's only a 15-20 min walk from Bairro Alto (main area for bars) and less than a 5 min walk from the nearest metro stop.

This hostel feels almost like a hotel, very good atmosphere, and if you want to relax, away from the parties, you can. Facilities are very clean, and the theater is a plus. Also the breakfast girls are very helpful and friendly, had a great time

15 minute walk to the center. Kitchen is occupied by staff cooking communal dinner every night, so if you want to cook your dinner your self, you will have to wait.

Fantastic atmosphere, the staff are really inclusive and helpful and sassy. LOVED eating pancakes every morning and sleeping in a double bunk bed! Staff made our stay in Lisbon unforgettable. Only problem was their washing machine was broken so we couldn't wash our clothes + the layout of the bathroom is a bit awkward (two toilets, one room, no walls)

Urban garden hostel was an all around good time. I met some really cool people, stayed in a comfortable queen sized bed, ate delicious food, and loved the atmosphere in general. I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking to explore Lisbon!

Awesome days in Lisbon, thanks to Urban Garden Hostel and his staff (and the city too^^). Large beds, lovely pancakes until 12 am, outside place to hang out, excellent cleanliness, "superman", Perfect combination of partying atmosphere and respect for sleeping time. Last but not least a very kind and fun staff. Shout out to them for their amazing job!
