This hostel is extremely well-located right outside the Metro station in Baixa-Chiado. Could not ask for a better location - close to all the activity, shopping and night life. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm, great views from the room, very clean. Lovely common area, breakfast included and staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend

Pros: Amazing location that cannot get any better. It's right in the heart of Lisbon and close to everything. Clean and cozy with a great common room. The pictures tell the truth, and our room may actually have been nicer than it looked in pictures. Hey okey standard hostel breakfast included. Actually decent coffee. Four clean showers with warm water....

This was my 5th visit to Lisbon and I can happily say I have found the place for my future stays. We booked the apartment as we prefer not to share a bathroom but we had a look around the rooms in the main building and the standards we had in the apartment are the same throughout. The apartment was...

I stayed in one of the single private rooms. It was a cozy size. I was impressed with the number of toilets and how clean it was. The staff members are all super cool. They were helpful with planning my days with me and gave me good tips on food places. The location is perfect. You could walk everywhere. The...

Great hostel! We stayed there 4 years ago, and one of the staff, Antonio, went above and beyond and literally chased down a man who stole our friends phone at a festival after our stay. Legend. <3 Antonio.

Booked this location for me (53) and my two kids (14 & 17) for two nights and was expecting something with large size bath rooms and very basic bedding for this price but ended up in a extremely clean cosy and familiar environment. Most of the people were student and backpacker style and much younger then me but some families...

Only stayed one night but would come back to this hostel. I think my favourite part of the hostel was the big common room with two big dinner tables, sofas, chairs and bean bags. There is would floor throughout and paintings, posters and literary mementos. The staff is super friendly and looking at their calendar it seems they offer lots...

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set between cobblestone alleys and old streets, Lisbon Poets Hostel is the perfect place to soak up the charm of this mythical city. Located in Chiado - the most happening district in Lisbon - you'll find us amongst the most beautiful buildings which were restored to their former glory after the earthquake of 1755. It's also the arts district - you'll find out what Portuguese street art is all about, as well as many small art galleries in the least expected places, little-known concert venues and the best alternative designer decor shops in the city. Lisbon Poets hostel sits above 'A Brasileira', Lisbon's most famous cafe, and is just steps away from the Baixa-Chiado metro exit. Just beside us is Bairro Alto, the famous nightlife district where you can dance the night away, with streets full of bars, cafes and general booze-filled fun times. ... more   less
