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.

Wow! The clean kitchen and bathroom, to me, that’s the most amazing part, because it is the hardest to achieve in a travelers hostel!
I would mind trying that hostel. My hostel Lisbon Destinations was excellent. In fact all the hostels I stayed while Portugal were excellent in their own different way.
You should definitely try it. The atmosphere was amazing!!!
You should try staying there one day!!
Sounds like such a friendly and welcoming place! :-) I especially appreciate the cleanliness and home-cooked food. :-)
Everyone was super friendly! :)
sold! Looks like a great place to stay!
It was! :D Really miss the staff these days.
I would LOVE to stay here when I’m in Western Europe next, your room looked adorable! Plus the combination of waffles and swing dancing can never be beat. And Lisbon continues to top the list of cheapest European destinations!
This place looks so cute and cozy! I love the look of the room you were in.
Me too! It was so lovely!!
Looks very cosy with some pretty cool decor and I love Lisbon – such an underrated city!
These waffles were to die for! :D
Ok seriously – this hostel looks better than many hotels!!! Sounds so friendly and clean with great food! I’ll have to remember the name if I visit Lisbon!
Would I stay at this hostel? Absolutely! It’s a great find. I’ve been to Lisbon once before and had a wonderful time. Portugal still seems to be a hidden find for many people which is surprising as Lisbon is right next to the beach as well as city attractions. It’s also incredibly cheap and the locals are so friendly. I remember ordering what I thought was a glass of red wine for €2.00 but they brought me a whole bottle! For €2.00! At the end of my dinner, I could hardly walk!
Great find Agness. :)
What a great name for a hotel- Good Morning. Room looks great.
WHAT?!?!? Are you punking (teasing) me?!?! This is a hostel??? I’ve been telling you and Cez for a year now I have NO desire to stay in a hostel. I had NO IDEA they were like this! I’ve heard some bad stories but it was not like this. Here…the food, the cleanliness, the amenities. I said I wouldn’t do it but you just reminded me why we should never say “never”. This just skyrocketed into my Top 10 eTramping posts that I love. Thank you, Agness! I’m going to back and read this all over again because it’s so awesome :)
The hostel looks amazing, the staff are friendly, they organize tours and activities such as dances … goodmorning hostel is definitely a winner.
This place looks like a destination in itself – lovely!!
And Agness arggggghhhhh – if I tease you with my sushi pictures, you torture me with those waffle pics!!! WANNNNTTT!!!
Great photos of the place, Agness. It’s great that your mom was there with you–is she going to be part of your traveling team soon? :D I’ve been following your recent Europe posts, very nice. Although I’m a little sad about you leaving China… :(
This summer I wanted to introduce my mom to backpacking for less than $25 a day idea and she kinda liked it!! We will definitely travel more often!! :)
Love hostels, this one looks great
Thank you, sweetie. The best hostel experience so far.
Hi Agness, The hotel looks great – I love waffles so if I ever go to Lisbon, I’ll be sure to check into this hotel! Are you starting university again shortly?
Hey Jennifer. Yes, I start my uni in September, but I’m moving to Amsterdam on 18th! :) Can’t wait!!
This hostel looks amazing! I stayed in We love F. Tourists which was great as well, but this hostel looks even better. What a great choice for breakfast for a hostel is that?! When I ever go back to Lisbon I will stay in that hostel :)
Yeah, the choice of food was…. impressive! :)
OH MY GOSH! I think this was the hostel I stayed at when I was in Lisbon, only I think it’s under new management and got an interior design makeover! But there are too many other things that just feel familiar! Well, even if the management is new, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED staying there. I loved the location, I made some awesome friends, and have memories that I cherish so much. Lisbon was one of my favorite trips ever and that was due in large part to my hostel experience there! SO EXCITED! :)
Seriously? The world is so small!!
My son just came back from living in Portugal for two years! Thanks for the post! I would love to visit there some day!
