This hostel in Lisbon does exactly what it says on the tin – it is in the centre of the city housed in a magnificent period building. With the Picoas metro station quite literally on the doorstep, it provides a great base for groups looking to discover all the Portuguese attractions as well as being able to travel further afield.

The hostel is within walking distance from the Marques de Pombal square, where all the sightseeing buses depart from and arrive. And the friendly hostel staff are happy to help groups plan an itinerary for viewing the best sights in the city. Remember to ask them about the Lisbon card which can be purchased and gives great discounts on entrance to museums as well as transport.

Open 24 hours a day, this hostel has a great bar area which is perfect for relaxing in after a day’s activities. And even though you are right in the centre of the city, you are still just 15km away from some superb sandy beaches. So there is the opportunity to mix a city break with a beach break too.

For nature lovers there are a number of parks and gardens in Lisbon. Described as a hidden gem are the Lisbon Botanical Gardens which were created by the King. He originally wanted one of every plant species to be represented and there are now some wonderful species worth checking out!

There’s also a zoo and one of the world’s largest oceanariums in Lisbon, so if you are travelling with a family then there is plenty to keep little ones amused too. There’s also a museum of water and a museum of electricity. Really!

So whatever your group reason for visiting this diverse city, why not make an enquiry at our hostel today?
