Though it's a hostel, we really liked the Pousada de Juventude de Lisboa. Rooms are very simple, but the whole place is hospitable, cheerful and tidy. Plus, it's really cheap.
Partnered with Hostelling International, the Juventude Lisboa can sleep 174 travelers in its dorms and private rooms.
Privates have large windows, electric blue headboards, writing desks and a TV. Private baths are a bit small, but have flashy chrome sinks (think: Eurostar trains) and towels. Most of these rooms face the back and are pretty quiet.
Dorm rooms (with a maximum of six beds) are simple affairs with bunks and lockers. Whimsical tiles add flare to shared bathrooms, which have a row of sinks, private shower stalls and a well-lit vanity lined with hair dryers.
The cafeteria, where an includedbreakfast buffet is served, seats 80 and also offers lunch and dinner (&eurol;6). The bar is open from 6 p.m. until midnight and serves cervejas, Cuba Libres, tequila shots and, of course, port wine. An adjacent lounge has a pool table, games and brightly colored sofas.
Note the artwork in the rooms. It was created by members of AFID—the National Family Association for the Integration of Disabled people.
Wi-Fi is available for €.50 per hour. The Pousada is located right next to the “Picoas” metro stop, putting you in the center in just a few stops.
