Welcome to Lisbon!
Set between cobblestone alleys and old streets, Lisbon Poets Hostel is the perfect place to soak up the charm of this mythical city. Located in Chiado - the most happening district in Lisbon - you'll find us amongst the most beautiful buildings which were restored to their former glory after the earthquake of 1755.
It’s also the arts district – you’ll find out what Portuguese museums and street art is all about, as well as many small art galleries in the least expected places, little-known concert venues, charming cafes and the best alternative designer dècor shops in the city. Lisbon Poets hostel sits above 'A Brasileira', Lisbon's most famous café, and is just steps away from the Baixa-Chiado metro exit. Just beside us is Bairro Alto, the famous nightlife district where you can dance the night away, with streets full of bars, cafés and general booze-filled fun times.
Over seven hills, which are as many points of observation whence the most magnificent panoramas may be enjoyed, the vast irregular and many-coloured mass of houses that constitute Lisbon is scattered. For the traveller who comes in from the sea, Lisbon, even from afar, rises like a fair vision in a dream, clear-cut against a bright blue sky which the sun gladdens with its gold. And the domes, the monuments, the old castles jut up above the mass of houses, like far-off heralds of this delightful seat, of this blessed region.

The hostel itself has a very cosy and romantic atmosphere. You’ll find that as soon as you step in the door, you’ll be immersed in a artistic and eclectic environment – it’s not called “Poets” for nothing, after all. Aside from the unique decoration, it's warm and friendly, and our staff will go out of their way to make you feel instantly at home, whether you’re travelling alone or with your friends: check our free walking tours and our homemade dinners.
You can cook in our kitchen, enjoy our laundry service, relax in the living room with free fast Wi-Fi, cable TV, DVDs and books, or step out to explore the huge selection of bars and cafés which surround you. When you get back home, we’re sure that you’re going to remember your stay as one of the best parts of your trip. All stays include free continental-style breakfast (served from 8am to 10am).
Reception is open 24 hours and access is by key card, which ensures your security. Free lockers and luggage storage are included. On your check-out you can leave your bags with us free of charge until midnight. You can also leave them for some days for 1 euro per day.
