Informations about Alfama Patio Hostel

Experience a different way of staying in Lisbon at our recently-renovated hostel, the closest one to Lisbon Castle.

Experience the real Lisbon in the most characteristic district of Old Town, where Fado started and where random people sing in winding streets.

In Lisbon, within the four walls of our hostel, youll find a place with a global flavour, yet it still smells just like home. Could you ask for anything more?

Located in the most characteristic of Lisbons neighbourhoods, among winding streets and small cobbled squares, is Alfama Patio: a traditional house, where the living room and kitchen extend onto a grassy garden patio, with greenery climbing the walls and flowers spilling out over their pots. A few steps up, a deck terrace overlooks red-roofed buildings and the Tagus River, lying beneath Lisbon's trademark golden sunlight.

Our patio is the heart of the house which, undoubtedly, contributed to the hostels international Best Atmosphere award. This is where it all happens: a delicious pancake breakfast every morning, a BBQ and DJ on Saturdays, film night on Mondays and a Latin fiesta on Wednesdays. Its in this setting, at once upbeat and laid-back, that nationalities intermingle and friendships are made.

But to discover the city, you must venture out beyond the front gate. Our regular group outings lead you to some of the best of what Lisbon has to offer - a Brazilian music and dance party held locally on Tuesdays, an evening of live Portuguese Fado music on Thursdays and bar-hopping into the night in the Bairro Alto neighbourhood on Fridays.

Through we have activities every night, were not a party Hostel, and after 0.00h you can always continue the party in the local pubs nearby. :)

Some of Lisbons most popular monuments are barely past the Hostels doorstep, while others are just a ride away on one of the citys yellow electricos (riding in one of these trams is a must-do for any visitor anyway). And because theres a lot worth a seeing outside Lisbon proper, groups of five or more can hop in the hostels own van and be shuttled to nearby Cascais and Sintra or to one of several magnificent beaches close by.

If after all this youre still undecided, then it may help to know that Alfama Patio has won successive Best Staff awards. When you arrive and are welcomed with open arms, youll understand why.

The hostel reserves the right of admission for children under 10 years of age.
