1. Lisbon Poets Hostel 

“Nature never remembers, that’s why she’s beautiful.” ― Alberto Caeiro.

If you’re after somewhere with a little sophistication, head to Lisbon Poets Hostel in Chiado, the city’s most central district where you can find everything you need. Bean bags, hammocks, and antique lamps lend a homely feel to this place, but you’re also next to Bairro Alto, the nightlife district, should you choose to paint Lisbon red.

🏘 Neighbourhood: Chiado

🏠 Address: Rua Nova da Trindade 2, 5th floor

🚉 Nearest Station: Baixa-Chiado

2. Sunset Destination Hostel

This Lisbon hostel has an insane terrace with its very own pool, chillout dome and bar overlooking the river and Lisbon’s Golden Bridge – ideal for sunset Caipirinhas. There’s also an urban garden where they invite you to plant your own sunflowers (too cute!), and pool parties every Friday with a live resident DJ and a Portuguese BBQ. The location seals the deal –  you’re both near the beaches of Carcavelos, Estoril and Cascais and the Pink Street of Cais do Sodré, a former red light district revamped into a bohemian nightspot.
