When visiting Lisbon last month, I had an amazing opportunity to stay at a very charming and extremely friendly place called Goodmorning Hostel, located in the heart of Lisbon’s historical downtown area and close to the best nightlife.
Goodmorning Hostel is a right place to stay at for everyone who:
Travels on a tight budget
The hostel offers 4, 6, 8 and 10 mixed dorms for budget travelers, double rooms for friends and couples, as well as twin and double room ensuites. Moreover, the price includes free buffet breakfast which is available between 8 am and 11 am every day.
What’s for breakfast? All goodies you can think of – freshly chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, apples and pears,
Portuguese bread and breakfast rolls,
mouth-watering cheese and tomato toasts,
fruity jams, herbal and fruits teas, coffee and milk.
Looks for a hostel situated in the heart of Lisbon
Goodmorning Hostel Lisbon stands on one of the city’s main avenues, it is just a few minutes walk from the buzzing downtown, great monuments and amazing nightlife.
There is a supermarket on the opposite side of the street, organic store with healthy lunches and dinners as well as Restauradores metro station, pastry shops and seafood restaurants. All within a hand’s reach!
Is keen on meeting awesome people from all around the world
The Goodmorning Hostel staff is doing what they can to gather all visitors together each night so they can interact with other, drink some free sangria, dance, sing and cook.
Moreover, the hostel will take you to conquer Lisbon’s castle and gives you a bunch of useful tips on what to see and what to do in Lisbon on the cheap. The staff organizes free walking tours, astonishing pub crawl and appetizer nights. Trust me, you’ll never get bored neither lonely here!
Pays a lot of attention to cleanness and neatness
Goodmorning Hostel is spotless when it comes to tidiness. Everyone washes their dishes, sweeps the floor and wipes the tables. There are two huge fridges and the freezer in the kitchen where you can store your food. Everything is well-organised here.
Goodmorning Hostel is definitely about the people. The staff creates a great atmosphere and everyone (including me and my mom) felt like home.
We were welcomed with a big and sincere smile from João Pinhão -one of the staff members, who was so kind to show us around and recommend a few must-see Lisbon spots. Magda, who originally comes from Poland, talked to us for hours about her expat life in Portugal while Duarte and Duarte Antão made sure we were all fine and happy every day.
I shared the room with my mom. Our room was lovely, cozy and so comfy! We were impressed by the cool design and the balcony from where we could see breath-taking Lisbon at night.
We shared the kitchen and the bathroom, but there was never a queue there. The bathroom was always neat and clean.
