Hostelworld says

If you're looking for a boutique-style hostel, we think the multi-Hoscar-winning Living Lounge Hostel might be your place. Each of their light and airy rooms has been decorated in a different colourful theme by local artists. Hostelworld guests often note that the staff have proved to be accommodating to early morning arrivals and departures, organising special breakfasts and taxis. Also highly-praised is the hostel's nightly three-course dinner for only â'¬9, including wine. We particularly like that the free breakfast includes pancakes.

Property Description

It is a question that has always plagued the creative mind: does life reflect art or does art reflect life?

Living Lounge, recently voted the second best medium hostel on Hostelworld, takes hostel art and travelling life to a whole new level.

Each double, single and dorm room at the hostel is a unique work of art, having been individually designed by local artists to reflect different elements of Lisbon's rich culture. Although every room is different, theyve all been crafted with the same goal in mind: providing our guests with supreme comfort, security and style during their stay. We also have a budget room in the attic with narrow stairs and two individual beds.

Our hostel features a luxurious and spacious downstairs lounge area, providing the perfect place to sip a drink, listen to music and meet people from around the world. Upstairs we have a peaceful indoor garden room, a lovely place to bring a book and relax. Our guests are welcome to use our free Wi-Fi internet, and our friendly staff can provide you with free maps and any tourist info you might need.

Living Lounge is a project from the same group of Portuguese friends who own and operate the multi-award winning Lisbon Lounge Hostel. With Living Lounge, we bring you the same high standards of quality and design but with an exciting new artistic concept.

Living Lounge is located in the heart of Lisbon's tourist centre, right on the border between the ritzy Chiado district and the historic Baixa. The Baixa-Chiado metro station is literally right across the street, and it is only a quick train ride to Lisbon's nearest beaches or a short stumble to Lisbon's best nightlife area - the Bairro Alto. We also provide a range of free activities, including nightlife tours and daytime walking tours.

With piece-of-cake public transport access, you'll have no problem finding us. We look forward to providing you with an unforgettable stay in Lisbon.

Important Note: From the 1st of January 2019, a city tax of 2€ per person per night will be charged on top of your bill and it must be paid on site. This tax is charged to guests aged 13 and older. It is subject to a maximum amount of 7 nights per guest.
This Tax will be delivered to the Municipality of Lisbon. View House Rules


Living Lounge Hostel gives you boutique-style accommodation on a budget, with super spacious dorms in bright, colourful themes designed by Portugal-based artists. If you're not admiring the eclectic décor, you're probably eating – we've got pancakes at our free breakfast and cheap three-course dinners (including wine) at night. We'll take you round the city for free, too, whether by day on our walking tours or at night on our pub crawls. Meet us at our on-site bar and we'll get going!


We're in Lisbon's centre, nestled between the fancy Chiado neighbourhood and the historic Baixa district. The nightlife of the Bairro Alto area is 12 minutes away on foot. We're also an 8-minute walk from the Ribeira da Naus waterfront promenade. If you're arriving by air, you can get to us from Lisbon Portela International in under an hour on the metro. Take the red line to Alameda and change to the green line, going towards Cais do Sodré. Hop off at Baixa-Chiado and you're 1 minute from our door.

Rooms and Dorms

Whether you book a private room or a dorm, you'll be comfy while your stuff stays safe: we've got 24-hour security, personal lockers, reading lights and air con. Sheets are included in your booking, and there's free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel. Our shared bathrooms all have hot showers – bliss after a day travelling.

Extras and activities

We've got a luxe lounge where you can chat to people from all over the globe. If you want somewhere a bit quieter, there's a garden room indoors where you can rest up in peace while reading a novel from the book exchange. Our staff are super helpful, and they're always around to give you free city maps and tips. Leaving early? Ask about our special breakfasts and taxi services. You can always cook something to go in the kitchen, too.

    I had a great time staying in this hostel. Very well located and the staff was excellent. Very happy overall. My only gripe is that the hostel could have been a little more social to my taste. The lounging area is nice but isn't too social for reasons difficult to explain.

    I was just in Lisbon for a one-night stopover. I was delighted by the location because it was close enough to walk to many points of interest. It was less than a block to the metro station and only about a block off of a ramble/pedestrian mall/walkway area. The bed wasn't very comfortable and there was construction next door so it was noisy in the morning, but overall I was happy with it.

    Very Good

    14 Mar 2020
    COVID-19 cases were just appearing in Portugal so the hostel was closing the next day. We didn’t spend a lot of time at the hostel. We booked a private room. Good sized room with two single beds pushed together. The furniture and two pillows had a plastic cover on them. Curtains didn’t go high enough, so in the morning we woke up with the sun. One of the balcony doors was broken. Breakfast was the usual cereal, bread, cheese, coffee, etc. Good but we’ve had better. Bathrooms were nice and clean.

Living Lounge Hostel says

I think what makes this place special is a combination of our unique and inspired decoration, unbeatable central location, and passion for helping guests feel at home. All 23 of our rooms have been decorated by friends, local artists, DJs and designers, all trying to express the diversity of Lisbon's culture and history. We also offer quite a lot of extras, like daily free activities, nightly dinners, a free breakfast spread, free towels and free Internet access. It's a warm, welcoming home base and we're pretty confident that it helps our guests to fully enjoy all that this historic and vibrant city has to give.
It's an easy stroll from here to the majority of the city's main attractions. You can visit the famous St. George's Castle, maze-like Alfama, water-front Praça do Comércio, and the bumping Bairro Alto night-life district without ever breaking a sweat. I usually tell guests that they should spend an afternoon or evening at one of the city's lookout points (miradouros), because it's sure to leave them with an impression more stunning than any guidebook can provide.
