We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

The staff of the Lisboa Central Hostel have an extremely high rating on Hostelworld, no doubt due to their friendliness and vast knowledge of Lisbon. They also make free soup every day as well as free milkshakes on Mondays, while one Hostelworld user said the free breakfast of fruit pancakes was the 'icing on the cake' of a 'faultless' stay. We like that they offer lots of little extras to their guests, from cheap sangria and beer to pub crawls and free popcorn on movie nights.

    This is the hostel I will always go to when i'm in Lisbon! Good location, friendly staff, cozy room, you have common rooms where you can hang out with other people and you have a very modern kitchen. The sangria night was a blast, they always have something planned for the day and the evening (free activities) that are great! Couldn’t recommend this place enough! :)

    Absolutely lives up to its reviews - easily the best hostel I’ve stayed in. Met some really cool people there that made travelling solo much more enjoyable. The staff are fantastic and location is perfect- close but in a quiet area.

    Lisboa Central is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. The location is excellent in Marques de Pombal. Very accessible to multiple buses and metro lines, walking distance from many if Lisbon's main attractions, and the immediate area around the hostel has a lot to offer as well. The staff is friendly and helpful, willing to chat and give travel advice. The rooms and beds are clean, neat, and spacious. The inside of the building got a little hot and stuffy at times, but otherwise it was great.

    It has superb location. I was there because of A 20 hour layover in Lisbon and it was VERY easy to get to from the airport as well as the city center and all of its interesting night life the hostel is also full of really friendly staff and lots of activities. I got great recommendations from people on what to do if I only have 22 hours. The rooms were also cozy and clean--and the free lockers without needing your own lock was definitely a plus!

    Amazing hostel. All communal areas were cleaned regularly and the staff were so nice and helpful. The breakfast was really good considering it’s included. Lots of free spaces to socialise with other travellers. Very safe and private in rooms. Water pressure in the showers was amazing for a hostel! Chargers & lights available in the individual beds. Lockers too. Would 100% recommend and stay again. Thank you Lisboa Central Hostel!

    I didn’t stay long enough to judge but I liked it. The staff is friendly, they offer everything on site such as shampoo and towels (important for light travelers), and theres lockers to keep your stuff like passport and cash (very critical). In terms of the location it’s good but you’ll have to walk 20 minutes to the bar area so prepare yourself. The atmosphere is decent I don’t mind chill people compared to obnoxious ones so I give them that.

    Very good hostel. Free breakfast is a cool perk. It's a bit annoying that the lockers are so small, and loud when used. I'd probably stay here again if back in Lisbon.

Lisboa Central Hostel says

We're a small hostel that likes to treat every guest as part of our family. The Portuguese are known for their hospitality so we treat them according to Portuguese traditions, call them by their names and try to make them feel at home. I think that someone that's travelling likes to feel welcomed and likes to find a home-like atmosphere that makes them feel comfortable. We have daily activities to encourage interaction amongst the guests - things like sangria happy hour to some liquor, wine and Portuguese food tastings, movie nights, milkshakes for the hot days, hot drinks for the cooler days, and cupcakes and soups. Plus there's movies, cards, video games and pub crawls. It's pretty entertaining around here.
We're in Marques de Pombal, the centre of the city, a few minutes away from downtown and the historic area, and a short bus ride from Belem and metro trip from Nation's Park. When people ask me what they should do here, I usually say that Lisbon is a city for walkers - its typical neighbourhoods are inviting for long walks and every day you discover something new.
