Despite the really long walk up the hill from the metro station, I don't have anything to complain about with this place! Clean, central location and generally just an easy place to be if you're in Lisbon. Staff was really friendly too. Would recommend.

Lisbon Soul Ideally situated just away from the centre yet close enough to walk or take a tram. The Hostel is just off the square which has some of the best views in Lisbon. It is on the tram 28 route where you must be careful of the highly professional pickpockets that are around and inform ours for targeting tourists...

Never have I come across such professional, helpful and cheerful staff. They had no hesitations in assisting us with tourist information and onward bookings. The hostel itself is perfect for meeting other travellers with a big kitchen and decent sized dorm rooms with clean bathrooms. Such a good vibe!

Great hostel in a great location. The staff are really nice and helpful, giving you lots of tips on where to go and what to visit. It is only a short walk (15mins) into the main square in town and only a 5 min walk from the great little (old) suburb of Alfama - where you can get happily lost...

Although we got a bit lost trying to find our way there, it's really very simple: follow the tram lines up the hill from the Martim Moniz metro stop. The two ladies running the place were excellent with advice on how to get to places, what to see, etc. The hostel is very well-kept thanks to efficient cleaning staff. However,...

Good hostel for a cheap price with extremly nice stuff! Perfect site - quiet, lots of restaurants around and not to far to the city. The hostel is modern, clean and cosy. Recommendable! I would definitely stay there again.

Hostel has rustic look. Hostel signage is not prominent and difficult to find. Room is small but it's ok as we only stayed for 1 night. It was unfortunate that 1 bathroom on the floor we stayed was not in working condition. We had to constantly check on bathroom availability at other floors, which is very inconvenient.

Lovely and cozy hostel. With a lot of young people. Me and my girlfriend had a lovely time in Lisbon because of the hostel. One of the greatest hostel I've tried. The only nay was a dog barking the whole day and night when we stayed in their apartment.

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighbourhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
