If you’ve been searching for a hostel in Lisbon, you probably have already read that the city has the world’s best hostels. The Lisbon hostel phenomenon started a couple of years ago and doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon, judging from the number of new choices opening practically every couple of months. Below are the five latest ones to be added to the GoLisbon.com list:
1. SHIADO HOSTEL
Not only is this the best one of the five new choices, but also one of the best in the city. The location alone (in the middle of Chiado) makes it one of the best options, but then there are the excellent facilities and services. It’s been furnished in a simple, comfortable, modern style, and offers free internet, breakfast, and a kitchen. In case you’re wondering, yes, that’s Shiado with “S.”
2. KITSCH HOSTEL
You’ll understand the name when you step inside. You’ll see a fun, colorful kitsch décor at this hostel facing Restauradores Square, meaning a unique place in an excellent location. You’ll be in a cool, relaxed space within walking distance to most of the city’s attractions and public transport, and can take advantage of the hostel’s internet and laundry services.
3. BAIRRO ALTO TRAVELLERS
Young travelers who do their research before they arrive in Lisbon, know that the place to be in Lisbon at night is Bairro Alto. If you don’t want to have to worry about how to get back to your hotel after a night of drinking, the choice is Bairro Alto Travellers, a hostel located in quiet(er) Rua da Rosa. And here’s a special offer: You won’t find this hostel cheaper at any other hostel booking service online.
4. RITUALS BACKPACKERS
The interior of a 17th century building has been renovated to become this hostel decorated in a style that combines contemporary furnishings and classic details, supposedly to create the “ambiance of the modern Fado movement.” It’s an attractive place to lounge after a day of sight-seeing, with internet and laundry service.
