Start off by admiring the river from the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or the fresh grilled fish, at Príncipe do Calhariz, and later explore the dozens of streets full of bars and clubs! Whether you're visiting for a day or a whole week, make sure you visit Bairro Alto and its surroundings.

This is in a perfect area, right by the trams and a lookout point. Highly recommended if you want to stay in a part of town with lively streets at night. Easy to get to by uber or even walking. Lots of graffiti but not a dangerous part of town. Good cafes within walking

By our opinion and experience "the" B.A. Hostel is great. Very kind, helpful and welcoming stuff. Great breakfast (some would say simple...but you have fresh loaves of bread in the morning, few types of coffee, juice, milk, cereals, jams, chocolate cream spread, ham and

We were kinda disapointed seeing the buidling, because it is old and in a very little street, but don't judge a book by its cover. This hostel was perfect! It is close to the city center so you are not obliged to take a bus to go eat or visit. We stayed in a private room for

"Bunk bed rooms are great."
"Perhaps ask if there are any rooms NOT facing the street."
"I would not go to the 1st floor room because it´s close to the living room where the breakfast is held and it might be kind of noise in the morning!"
"If you pick a twin room you will get a bunk bed. Balcony is shared with other residents."
"The dormitories are better than the double rooms."
US$48 - US$96 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
