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

    This was my first time staying in a hostel on my own and it was an amazing experience. The staff were very helpful and friendly, facilities were clean, the breakfast was delicious, and I met some great people! The hostel offers two tours per day, and a pub crawls each night which is a great opportunity to meet new people. I would 10000% stay at this hostel again and will be taking home very fond memories.

    Really excellent hostel. The only criticism is perhaps the curtains in the private rooms could be black out curtains bit other than that no complaints. Ps. They have the best common room playlist

    I stayed here alone 5 years ago around early September and it was a good choice. This time my wife came along and for the same period, it was very busy, so the breakfast area was quite crowded and all the more with us having to wash up. Also, there was some malfunctions in the toilets but overall they were still very clean. For the price of a private double occupancy room, it seems a bit high now. Still - it's a good clean convenient location.

    staff were really nice and helpful. 3rd floor bathrooms could be better. On one side of the hallway, toilet stall was too small for comfort. While the single shower was nice and spacious and clean. On the other side of the hallway, the other set of bathrooms toilet stall was more spacious but cleanliness was iffy, had mold in the single shower. Guests are a crapshoot. Had drunks and large, immature disrespectful groups. While they had some pleasant guests too. So just luck of the draw.

    My stay was really good, the hostel staff were super friendly and helpful. It has won awards in the past but not recently, and you can see that things are becoming a bit rough around the edges. But overall, very nice, clean, and friendly.

    I would have given a good review HOWEVER in the hostel is construction work outside the window of the room i stayed in which was £20 a night. It started very loud at 7am and the staff could do nothing YET they fail to mention this or give a discount for the disturbance. A hotel is being built so probably continue until end of next year. Also not impressed with blonde well dressed reception woman all she did every morning was gossip with Romanian cleaners in kitchen, louder then the constructio

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.
