"nice hostel in the historical part of the city"
we were definitely in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do here. If I go back to Lisbon, I will stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review
"In the heart of Bairro Alto"
Very pleasant experience staying at this hostel. At the top of the hill in Bairro Alto with an amazing view of the city (called a Miradoura) located right across the street. Room was very small as I had a private room with a bunk bed and shared bathroom services, but if you're looking for a cheap, convenient location to stay in the heart of the nightlife […] of the city... This is the place for you. My room was remarkably quiet from the street noise that transpires very late at night in this location. Pedro and Lourdes were very friendly and helpful at the front desk. Would recommend to solo or group travelers looking to indulge in the nightlife, don't mind walking up and downhill getting around Lisbon, and don't mind the expected noise that comes with Bairro Alto.

"Good hospel in a good place"
I've had a really good experience,the only thing that I don't like is noisy street and the early morning people drinking and talking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"small, uncomfortable, but ok to sleep after 2AM."
Ran out of hot water mid-shower. Apparently there is limited hot water in the hostel. If you want to get some sleep early, this isn't the place for you, there are 3-4 bars pretty much right below it, which I knew about so it's not really the hostel's fault. People are drinking in the streets so it's extra noisy, but the bars close at 2 and it's silent […] after 2:30AM. I had a single room on the top floor. No lift so lots of stairs, the room was really really tiny! I personally didn't care too much since I knew it was just for sleeping, but yes, it was very small. Also the bed was really uncomfortable! Quite hard actually. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"basic accommodation above city centre"
Old building in narrow street. Near Theatre Trinidad. Near centre shopping area. Many bars and eateries. No elevator. Staff fairly helpful. No towels or soap supplied. Comfortable bunk beds. Warm enough. Not noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent place to stay! The hotel staff is absolutely FANTASTIC. Very nice, very helpful, very accommodating. The hotel location is in a very good location - less than a 10 minute walk to the city center / metro line. It is quite loud at night because you are located right in the center of the bar scene, so great for students. Towels are not provided […] but only cost 1 euro. The included breakfast is great!

"Not a bad chorice if you do not care the noise"
The Room is quiet ok for Budget traveller. However Its really noisy during the night because the Bar is opposite to the hostel, especially weekends the Music last to 3-4 am. Better to sleep with earplugs. The Staff are friendly and Location is good. Not a Bad choice if you do not care the noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel bien situé"
Ce fut un bon weekend end,l'hôtel se trouve a proximité de tout. A renouveler sans hésitation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pga en dubbelbokning blev jag tvungen att betala 2/3 nätter. Kortsiktigt tänkt av ägarna. I övrigt vill jag inte döma ut hostelet helt. Det är som alla andra. Det ligger dock mitt i festområdet, så stökigt på nätterna är det.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by B.A. Hostel Dear Jens , We would like to remind you that you came to the Hostel in the evening to check in and asked to cancel all nights because you decided to change plans and go to another city . You were informed that due to policy cancellations we could charge you all night. However we did not. We're sorry that you booked in two different Hostels, however, was not the explanation that you gave at our reception. Despite your review hope you had a great stay in Portugal!
"Zentral gelegenes Hostel mit Service-Anspruch"
Das BA Hostel liegt in weniger als einer Viertelstunde Entfernung (zu Fuß) von mehreren Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Innenstadt (z.B. Elevador de Santa Justa) sowie vom U-Bahnhof Restauradores (1x Umsteigen vom/zum Airport). Das Hostel hat saubere Zimmer, renovierte Gemeinschaftsbäder und sehr freundliches Personal (24h-Rezeption). Das Frühstück ist für […] ein Hostel wirklich gut. In 100m Entfernung gibt es einen Kiosk/Imbiss mit günstigem Espresso, Bier und Snacks. Das Hostel ist perfekt bis auf zwei kleine Nachteile: Der Weg vom U-Bahnhof geht steil bergauf (5 Min) und die zahlreichen Bars in der Umgebung sorgen für Hintergrundlärm bis spät in die Nacht (3 Uhr ist Ruhe). Für einen Städtetrip dennoch bestens geeignet. Sehr zu empfehlen. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hyvä palvelu -korvatulpat tarpeen"
Olin kaikin puolin muuten tyytyväinen, mutta viikonloppuyöt olivat hyvin meluisia. Sijainti on loistava, vanhankaupungin katolla ja henkilökunta todella mukavaa ja avuliasta.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Due to a booking disaster, I ended up at this hostel. Note that I am not a person that normally stays at hostels, but needed somewhere to stay urgently. The best mistake ever. I was greeted warmly and made to feel comfortable immediately, was checked in flawlessly and given excellent advice regarding my other booking. My room was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were cleaned and sanitized every day and I never found anything wrong throughout my stay. It is in the perfect location to see all that Lisbon has to offer, within walking distance to many sights and close to public transport. At night it is literally in the center of the Bairro Alto night life and when inside you cannot hear any outside noise. There are numerous restaurants in the area. I highly recommend this hostel and will definitely return

first, the reception Lourdes is very lovely, location is good, but you need to take the tram up hill because the short cut to the metro is very steep , otherwise, walking to the metro is around 8 min. 12 min to rossio train station, which I have been to on the way to Sintra. The downside is that there are bars next to the Hostel and I am little bothered by the noise at late night.
Me and my partner have travelled alot around Europe few years ago and we found some hostels are better than hotels and this was one of them. Very close to all amenities. Very close to the night life and some of the best restaurants without the price.I suggest look up Simplesmente pizza bar 2min walk around the corner from hostal down the street is a great pizzaria. Staff are very welcoming and always asking need to look up somewhere or just how to get back to the airport they're polite and helpful.happy to come back again
"Perfect hostel for a couple"
06/04/14 Paul B Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Frack me, what a good time! Check out at noon, lovely bathrooms, room with a balcony, right next to the Barrio Alto, air con in the rooms, great staff (thanks Alexandra!!). The only way it would have been better is if my wife didn't cheat on me with a Lisbon policeman while I was passed out.

Excellent location up the hill of Bairro Alto. Very friendly and helfpul staff. Breakfast was good (quite big rolls :-) ). Double room was quite small, not that much space, but it was okay. You have to climb up some creaky stairs (doesn't mean they make a lot of noise!), I liked this athmosphere a lot! There is this narrow common balcony, cute.

they rooms are a bit small( 4pers) but the staff is amazing and is the location. we ll be back. for a hostel this is very good value. and its great for families aswell :) breakfast is okey, and they have tea and coffee all day
"Great staff and location!"
04/23/14 Fausol Rio de Janeiro, RJ
Positive: - The staff was super super super nice, they all knew my name and were always asking if I needed help and actually helping when i needed! -The breakfast was very fair, the bread and the ham and cheese very fresh! Cereals, butter, milk, coffee, cocoa powder, tea & honey! -The facilities are cozy and are always clean! Negative: -The holstel is located in the heart of Lisbon´s night life, there are many many bars around it so it was noise during the night, but I could sleep well. Bus some people might find it a little bit annoying.
"Cheap but good service"
04/15/14 spirallism2b Rabat, Morocco
B.A Hostel is a very great deal. I stayed in a 4-beds female room for a weekend and it was just what I was looking for: low price but not cheap service. You have everything you need to spend the night and a good breakfast to wake up. Lourdes, the receptionist during the day, is really friendly and helpful. You can ask her anything. Bathrooms are clean (I usually take my flip-flops so I dont bother for the shower) and beds quite comfortable. The area around the hostel is really noisy even if I was staying at the 3d floor and had the air conditionning (you have to agree with your roomates about that). Although the hostel is well located, close to most places to visit in Lisbon, it is up a hill you may not have the courage to walk at the end of a long day of walking around Lisbon. Ascensor do Gloria is here to help you from Restauradores. A tip though: take a metro ticket for 1,40 euro (or the daily ticket which allows you to travel unlimitedly on Carris transports for 24 hours for 6 euros) instead of bying the ticket on board (3,60 euros for 2 trips).

Having been in a few hostels, I was really impressed with this one in terms of value for money, friendly service and cleanliness. We had a great time in Lisbon and enjoyed our few days at BA Hostel. Hostel staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.
"Cheap, but not so comfortable. nice area."
11/06/13 Eli86_13 Turin, Italy
The area is really nice, right in the centre of the city. The staff is very helpful. I was with friends, in a room with four beds, it was so small, no space for anything, a bit suffocating! The bathrooms are shared, but quite big. Just it wasn't possible to close the doors, not so cool when it's not your private bathroom! The price howewer it's good, but maybe it's possible to find a better hostel than this.
