HI Lisboa - Pousada de Juventude Reviews

Not recommended

I spent 1 night in an extremely little room. no place for luggage, very little wardrobe.

Age 27 | Italy

Big hostel, safe place, close to airport/metro/bus

Although not in the old city center, the Lisbon HI Hostel is pretty conveniently located about midway between airport and the Alfama, Lisbon oldest district. Airport buses run to the hostel (stop, Picoas, fifteen minutes) and there's a metro station thirty meters away from the hostel (Picoas, Amarela line). The hostel is within walking distance from the Marques de Pombal square, where all the sightseeing buses depart from and arrive. It's a big hostel and I found it a little difficult to make new friends here, but the beds are comfortable and with the extensive breakfast it's pretty good value for money (though with 17 euros/night for a dorm bed in summer, it's one of the most expensive of the Portuguese hostels). The hostel is open twenty-four hours a day and you get a personal access card for your room, in contrast to most Portuguese HI hostels where you share a single key for one dorm. There are big lockers (bring own padlock) for you luggage, and the dorms are pretty spacious. There are laundry facilities and a bar where you can eat your own meal, but no kitchen facilities to prepare anything. All in all it feels like a safe and comfortable place to stay, and if you don't mind the ten-minute metro ride to the city center it's an excellent base to explore the fantastic city of Lisbon.


Excellent hostel! I stayed three nights and i meet so many nice people!

The common room and the Bar invites you to meet other people and relax. The Bar it's great. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff are very helpful. Also, the hostel is close to all kinds of public transport, which is nice if you want to go visit the city. Excellent Breakfast. Stay there!


This youth hostel is a bit outside the city centre. However, Picoas subway station is just 50m away and there are also several buses serving this area.

The rooms have 2-6 beds, and it seems that they have 'boy' and 'girl' floors. I stayed there with my girlfriend and we got a 2-bed room, but usually it is segregated and there aren't boys'/girls' showers/toilets on every floor. The rooms are clean and simple, with bunk-beds, and they have lockers though they don't seem to be very save to me. Big luggage lockers are also available and they cost 1,5 per day. Internet is 1 per 20 minutes. The staff are friendly enough and they speak English very well. There's also a grungy common room but I never saw anybody there. The hostel is open for 24 hours, though you can't go to your rooms between 10 a.m. and 4.30 p.m.

Breakfast is included in the price. Everybody gets: 1 hot and 1 cold drink, 1 bowl of cereals or 1 egg or 1 joghurt, 2 rolls, 1 slice of ham or cheese, 1 butter, 1 marmelade. The staff in the kitchen really make sure you don't take anything more! Lunch and dinner are also available, but there's also a supermarket right around the corner. There's also a bar that is quite cheap, but when I stayed there in summer there weren't many people there.

Overal this is a reasonable hotel.

HI Lisboa - Pousada de Juventude Reviews from the Web

I enjoyed the hotel atmosphere of this hostel. Nice facility, clean and Joana the reception staff employee was the best. She was high energy and multi tasking even those she was busy and not to mention with a great personality. Ms Joana had answers to all my questions ref my stay and transportation. She is definitely asset to the hospitality business.


Really friendly staff. Not worth the cost. Toilets feel like a prison cell.


door didnt lock on room, only got given one key card between two people so had to leave and return together, rude staff, run down looking place with very little going for it. you can see over the showers into the one next to you, and some suspicious stains were spotted also


Dirty bathrooms. Scruffy public areas. Noisy. Staff were pleasant. Buffet breakfast was super.


Overall my choice seems the best as I was not aware of the free breakfast. It's super place to spend a weekend


It is a simple but nice place, I just spent there one night at it was perfect for that purpose. I would go back.


The lockers don't have an integrated lock, you have to be your own and the bathroom is so dirty I kept trying going to coffee shops and restaurants.


Great breakfast compared to the price. Comfortable beds. Everything you need with good price.


The hostel is located between the airport and city centre which was great. Washroom was dirty, and always wet. One of the reviews saying the management claims that the bathroom is still on a renovation (for years)? so that makes sense why the bathroom is disgusting and damp all the time. How is it even possible 5/6 floors of guests sharing one bathroom? On top of that, I had to charge my phone across the room since there was no power outlet anywhere near my bed. Staffs were alright. Never again.


Worst hostel in Europe. I lost my towel. Dirty hostel. I'll never go this hostel ever.


They told us there was a kitchen and there was none. The staff was completely misleading. The bathrooms were never cleaned and the showers always being repaired.


Bathrooms were dirty (I stayed in the fifth floor and one of the toilets was blocked, smelled bad and water runs from the toilet). The location is a little far from the metro and downtown. The breakfast is included. It starts at 8h30 till 10h30 or 11am. I arrived at the cafeteria at 9h45 and there was just coffee, orange jus, bread andante type of cereal. Thats it.


The hostel was close to the airport, and to a metro stop - which was nice. The staff are friendly, but super slow. They didnt explain anything to me when I checked in. The hostel is so plain and boring, there is zero atmosphere of hostel. It kind of reminded me of a hospital, and the cafetera like a high school, the breakfast is also bad. They do not have a nice lounge/chill out zone, and the shared kit hen is just sad, the refri is hot, someone stole my stuff, and the 4 dorm is tiny!


the lift, show and door key, was not available,


Nice place, organized well.

Main street next to hostel is very busy so noise can wake you up.

Kitchen is Missing a cooker.


this hostel is not for the solo female traveller at all!! more so groups or sports teams. i accidentally went to the wrong address which was half way across the city, so make sure to double check! the staff were very welcoming and helpful when i reported things such as the overflowing of the showers. the female showers were an absolute state as they were all faulty. the room also didnt come with air-con, but a redeeming feature is the free breakfast! but not exactly good for vegans.


This hotel was not a good experience. The beds were saggy, the shower flooded into the hallway and then almost into our room, and so many other disgusting things. Someone entered our private room without informing us. The name says "youth hostel," but what is youth considering there were people staying there from age 4-65. As someone who has stayed in multiple hostels before, I will not be returning to this one ever.


Great stay if you are in family but if not no! There isnt any atmosphere at all, no common place, no kitchen to cook your own food It kind of look/feel more like an hotel than an hostel. The breakfast wasnt good at all, it was like one yogourt, one bread and one coffee. But, the place is really safe, cheap and clean, but I dont think its an atmosphere to meet other people. If you choose to stay there, be grateful that Lisbon got easy-access electric scooter that you can go downtown with.


Spent two nights in this hostel.

Breakfast was okay, missing some eggs and less sweet alternatives.

Room was okay (4 bed dorm), mattress quite saggy, but bearable for two nights.


All good for 1 night!



If you are just passing through or thinking about staying for a few days, the Lisbon Youth Hostel is a sure bet. It is strategically located in the city centre, in other words, you can get anwhere in the blink of an eye, either by underground/subway, bus or your own set of wheels.

Here, you can watch colossal concerts, get caught up in electrifying soccer games, take part in colourful festivals, visit amazing exhibitions, sublime shows and much, much more! Just keep your eyes open and be tuned in to what’s happening!!

From the Belém Tower to the Planetarium, or from the Jerónimos Monastery to the Parque das Nações (Park of Nations – the site of Expo’98 which was hosted by the City of Lisbon), from the Moorish São Jorge castle to Bairro Alto, or from Avenida 24 de Julho to the docks, the Belém Cultural Centre or Praça do Município (Town Hall Square) ... it’s best to come with plenty of time and a city guide!

Set in a gracious building from 19th century, HI - Lisbon Centre is located in Lisbon city centre, it have accommodations for 174 guests in a choice of 13 twin ensuite rooms (one suitable for wheelchair access), 1 double ensuite room and 31 dorms with a maximum capacity of 6 persons. The hostel offers 24 hour access, Internet and Wi-Fi, Laundry and Luggage Storage.
