We're bringing the outdoors in at our eco-friendly Urban Garden Hostel – from the nature-inspired décor to our extensive recycling programme. We also bring the party with our pub crawls in the Bairro Alto neighbourhood, and our reception is open 24 hours so there's no need to rush home. Time to relax? Grab a plush armchair in our snug lounge, buy a beer from the reception to enjoy in the courtyard or join in with our free communal dinners. Every morning, tuck into a free pancake and egg breakfast that will set you up for the day ahead.


Urban Garden Hostel is a 3-minute walk from Parque Eduardo VII (the city's largest park), as well as the Marquês de Pombal metro station. A 45-minute journey will bring you here from Lisbon Portela Airport. For fantastic views of the city and out to sea, take a 20-minute stroll from the hostel to Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara. To wander around the famous Alfama district – packed with historic houses, cute cafés and buzzing bars – just jump on the metro and you'll be there in five stops.

Rooms and Dorms

We've got beds in both mixed and female-only dorms, which all come with free sheets, lockers, bed lights and shared bathrooms. For a bit of extra calm, book one of our simple dorms in our separate annex building, which is just an 80-metre stroll away (you'll have your own free breakfast and coffee here). In the main house, some rooms have their own balconies overlooking the tree-lined street.

Extras and activities

We've got free Wi-Fi, so you can show off that delicious meal you cooked up in the shared kitchen on your Instagram story. We run social events most evenings, from movie nights to wine and cheese evenings. And with our free walking tours, surf lessons at the local beach and out-of-town trips, you'll have plenty to keep you busy.

    Great atmosphere, very secure and lovely. The only complaint I have, and this is me being nitpicky, is how squeaky the bunk was. Like laying perfectly still and it was still squeaking away

    It was a great hostel with wonderful staff. But the powdered milk that comes with breakfast is terrible.

    Great having the free breakfast with coffee! The staff are really nice and helpful. I stayed in the other building, which is just down the street and not far at all, so I don't know why other people in the reviews are fussing about it. It's a short walk into the city centre. There aren't quite enough bathroom stalls for the number of people, so expect to wait a few minutes to shower, and because of the number of people using the limited bathrooms, they're not very clean by the end of the day.

    Had no issues staying here! Everyone was so helpful and accommodating! I always felt safe and honestly didn’t even feel the need to lock my things in one of the lockers they provide! Keep in mind you need to provide your own lock if you did want to use them :) They also had events going on every night and deals with local companies that are perfect whether you are with people, or travelling alone!

    Urban Garden was a great hostel. The atmosphere was great, and it was in a location away from the buzz of the town to maintain some peace and quiet but a quick walk to the main area when you wanted to go! The free breakfast was a nice bonus and the rooms were nice and clean.

    Very Good

    06 Jul 2019
    I stayed here for 3 nights in the dorms that were in a completely separate building from the main hostel. I thought this was a bit odd since it is located about a block up from the main location. Plus the door to the building is always unlocked. Beds were clean and comfortable and I slept great with the windows open. Showers could be kept a bit cleaner but there are plenty of bathrooms so there is never any problem there. Free breakfast, location is a bit far, but you can’t beat the price!

    There's two buildings and the second one has no kitchen, fridge or common spaces where u could hang out. There's enough bathrooms but they're not super clean. You wont get a towel unless u pay. Mold on the wall in the room, squeaking beds. The staff was super rude when I asked for a room in the main building. But... The room felt clean except for the mold, there's a locker. U need ur own lock. And the interior is modern. I wasnt staying in the main building, cant judge it.
