Wanderers But Not Lost

Sleep in Lisbon

LISBONThere are several excellent hostels in Lisbon. We chose Sunset Destination Hostel by center location, price, for having na equipped kitchen and because it faces the river Tejo.


Sunset Hostel Destination: Sunset Destination hostel was our option to sleep in Lisbon. The hostel is quite central; it is located at the Cais do Sodré station (yes, inside the station building), between the river and the shopping streets. For those traveling on a tight budget this is a great option. The hostel has a kitchen, which allows you to prepare all meals from lunch to dinner. The daily rate includes breakfast with homemade bread, fruit, jam, butter and even crepes. In addition, the hostel has a rooftop terrace with a small pool. It is the ideal place to relax at the end of the day and enjoy the sunset over the river Tejo.


There are lots of foreign tourists in the hostel. The staff are super friendly and treat us so well that it seems as if we are at home. The hostel even has a Mac with a big screen that can be used by guests. Furthermore it has wi-fi that works well either in the rooms or in public spaces. We loved staying here.


The location is very good. It’s a 7-minute walk from downtown, opposite the boat that leads to Belém and besides the renovated Mercado da Ribeira. It is ideal also for those who want to go out. Elevador da Bica is a 5 minutes walk, and after the lift, we’re in the heart of Bairro Alto. This area is full of bars and pubs that are the delight of weekenders.


We chose a double room with a toilet and booked in the site well in advance. This allowed us to get the room for 33 € per person. This price is great considering we stayed in a double room with en-suite bathroom, in the Lisbon city center. Better than this was impossible. You can book through the site itself, Hostelworld or booking.com. The price of the dorms is around 20 €.
