Really wonderful experience. Friendly and help staff. Great place to meet other travelers. Interest starcases to top room which was quiet even though Tram 28 passes by. Room is small and has it own unique charm which is topped off by ocean view. Breakfast was good,price was nice and I would go back here again :)

The staff is cool and helpful, the rooms are clean and genuine, the house is at the heart of Alfama. I clearly love the Friday night barbecue which brings a nice atmosphere to the hostel. Thanks to a...

I stayed 4 nights here. This is a very good hostel and I would recommend it - the staff are excellent and the atmosphere is relaxed. The location is subjective - some will enjoy the quaint Alfama neighbourhood, but if you are looking to go out every night you'll be better off closer to Baixa. Having free access to the...

I loved staying here! The atmosphere is really social and welcoming. I felt very safe and secure as the main door is locked and you have to buzz every time you come in. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The neighbourhood is beautiful - I enjoyed staying in Alfama. It's convenient to tram...

This beautiful boutique hostel was one of my favourites in Europe. Located in the quaint neighborhood of Alfama, it's situated within easy walking distance to all the main attractions of Lisbon. The rooms were spacious, clean and (relatively) warm for the dead of winter, it offered a delicious and varied breakfast, friendly helpful staff, clean and well tended for amenities,...

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighbourhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
