I really liked the curtains aspect of the bunks! It truly gives you privacy and personal space. Great location! Right in the heart of Lisbon, you can practically walk everywhere from here in 5 - 10 mins!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Literally could not be a better hostel"
I've traveled around the world and always stayed in hustles and this was by far the best I've ever stayed in. Right downtown, overlooking the Iron Elevator, and less than 30 seconds walk from the Baixa-Chiado metro. Extremely clean, very safe, great service from everyone who works there, free and fast internet plus two computers in the lounge, minutes […] walk from dozens of restaurants and three main squares, comfortable beds (with curtains for privacy!), hot water, vending machine, free walking tour, cool light-up neon showers, tons of toilets/sinks/mirrors, lockers in the rooms... Did I mention my bed in a room of 4 was just €20 euros per night?!? Don't even think about staying anywhere else. Extremely pleased! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very modern, comfortable, & central place to stay!"
My review title says it all. It is conveniently located on Rua Aurea, just steps away from the 'iron elevator'. Feels very modern & well-maintained. Great for short or long stays.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing value for money."

This hostel is located in the centre of all the activity. It's near to both Rossio and Baixa Chiado stations so it's wonderful for getting around. Everyone at the hostel was really friendly and helpful and it was quite clean. It was my first time at a hostel and i was amazed at the privacy in the rooms. It was a great stay for a couple nights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Vänligt, prisvärt, nära allt. Återkommer gärna!"
Jag gillade verkligen Golden Tram! Superbra läge, mitt emot santa justa hissen, nära Rossio torg och station och allt annat! Bra, tryggt område. Supertrevliga ägare och personal. Bra grej med gardiner för varje säng. God frukost för 2€. Kan inte klaga på något alls! Jag var där under lågsäsong (januari) så jag var i stort sett ensam i rummet och träffade […] knappt någon annan vilket är positivt eller negativt beroende på hur du är :) Skulle gärna bo här igen!

"정말 잘 있다 갑니다."
여기서 2박을 했습니다. 일단 위치는 호시우 광장에서 5분도 안걸려요. 골든 트램 표시 있는데 문이 조금 작아서 지나 칠 수도 있는데 프레드페리 메장 바로 옆 문이라 쉽게 찾을 수 있을겁니다. 위치는 호시우 광장이라 어디든 이동하기 편하구요. 객실을 매일 청소해 주고 깨끗합니다. 층마다 남녀 구분된 공용 욕실있는데 남자꺼는 5~6개 부스로 되있어서 줄 서지 않으셔도 됩니다. 그리고 프런트데스크에 직원들 영어 잘하고 친절해서 좋았습니다. 조식은 기본 적인 빵과 시리얼, 과일을 뷔페식으로 먹을 수 있습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for the price - but for young people!"
Golden Tram 242 Hostel is the perfect city center location, friendly and helpful staff, good beds, good breakfast (buns, cold cuts, cornflakes, fruit, tea, coffee and juice) and decent bathing facilities. I slept in a four-person male room and there was some noise from the other guests in the room, but a lot of noise from the street - remember earplugs! Toilets […] and bathroom were cleaned frequently, but were just as quickly dirty again. One night I was awakened at 4 am by a young drunk woman who sought someone called Matheu!? This hostel is perfect for young festive travelers who do not have problems with noise and want cheap accommodation in the city center. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Ele é bem decorado. Tem casa de banho separada com 4 boxes com chuveiro A pressão da água é forte. Não posso falar do café da manhã pois só pernoitei e saí antes. A cama é confortável tb. E tem cortina em cada cama. Resumindo me hospedaria novamente mas preferiría uma cama de baixo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the best thing is 'location'. In my case, i stayed at 10 dorm. and the room was little bit narrow. but the bed was good. very comfortable. At every floor there are 3~4 shower booths, 2 toilets (female and male respectively). and i didn't have to wait for it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
朝食、部屋共に値段相応のホステル。しかし観光するのに最高の立地でした。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Baixia-Cidado駅という大きな駅からすぐです。ROSSIO広場やこのBaixiaエリアにはお店や観光地、駅が集まっているのでとても便利でした。リスボンは坂が多いので駅から平らな道を通って行けるのもよかったです。(ホステルに行くのに坂道を昇っているバックパッカーを何人も見かけたので) 大きなホステルなので、いろいろなサービスが整っていました。 シャワー、洗面台の数が多い、ランドリーがある、コーヒーや水の自動販売機がある、wifiが全館内で使える、ベットに１つずつコンセントプラグがあるところはとくに便利でした。 スタッフの方達の感じもよかったと思います。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Pour faire synthétique... Emplacement excellent (à deux pas du métro Baixa/Chiado), en face de l'Elevator Santa Justa (qui monte au Bairro Alto), et à 5 min de Rossio et du de la placa da Commercio (vue sur le Tage). Confort très bien, chambre agréable, rideaux pour chacuhn des lits dortoir permettant d'avoir un minimum d'intimité, douches et toilettes […] propres. Et ce à un prix raisonnable :).

The Golden Tram 242 Hostel was among the best hostels I stayed in while traveling Europe. The staff was very accommodating and let us put our bags in a storage room when we arrived so that we could explore the city that morning before check-in. My friends and I took one of the "free" (tip recommended) walking tours provided by the hostel that morning. While I'm not sure how accurate the tour guide's information was, we did get to see a lot of the city and we laughed at all his jokes. Check-in was smooth and easy since we had booked in advance online. Since we had eight people in our group, we completely filled up one dorm, which was nice. The room was spotless.The beds were very comfortable, and each bunk is sort of like an individual "pod" that has a curtain, a storage cubby, and a power outlet. Also, I think there was storage underneath and between the beds that could be locked. The bathrooms were pretty nice and clean too. The showers are separate from the toilets, but there are some on each floor so there was almost never a wait. The free breakfast was simple, but good. I think I remember having toast, juice, coffee, and cereal. There is also a bakery next to the hostel and they serve delicious Portugese pastries (including the famous Pastéis de Nata) for only a few Euro. If you want to save money on food, the Pingo Doce grocery store is just a few blocks from the hostel (turn right leaving the hostel, take the first left, and then follow R. 1 de Dezembro until you get there). I couldn't have been happier with the location of the hostel! It is just two blocks from the Baixa/Chiado metro station and in walking distance to Bairro Alto (great nightlife). Also, for those wanting to explore outside of Lisbon, the Rossio and Cais do Sodré regional train stations are in walking distance. We arrived in Lisbon at Santa Apolonia station and it only took us a few minutes to get to the hostel by metro. Overall, this hostel is very well run and offers budget travelers a pleasant stay in a great location. It was definitely one of the best things about my time in Lisbon!

We have chosen this hostel because of so many good reviews, but we forgot who is writing these reviews! Most probably very young travellers, who are usually sleeping in hostels. For a hostel is Golden Tram probabaly really above the avarage, but if you are usually sleeping in decent hotels, than forget this option. it is certainly worth giving 20 to 30 EUR more for a room and be happy. we booked a diuble room with private bathroom and we are really not so picky, but this was beyon the critics. Room is very small, there us no place to put the suitcase somewhere and not to kick it everytime, when yo pass by. There is also almost no space where to put the clothes. if you are coming for more nights, this can be very annoying. We could leave with all this, but when you see the bathroom, it all ends. With one word - disgusting and I mean it. Black hair on the floor, black hair in the shower, the shower itself dirty, the door of the shower even dirtier... This bathroom haven't seen the vacumer for ages, not to mention anything else. There is also this issue with the air condition. It can be switched on and off only automatically. Each time you have to call the reception. And if you don't want to use the AC, than you have to open the window, which could be another problem. Down there it's a very busy street and it is very noisy most of the time. Breakfast is a joke, there us not much more to say. And for the top of it Wifi was not workin the first day. The only poitive thing is a good bed, this one is really good. Well, staff is also nice and friendly and location is top, if you forget a busy street. In short - never ever again and I certainly not recommend it, unless you pretty unsensitive for all these things. But for 65 EUR for a room per night I certainly expect something else.
"Really clean and modern hostel"
10/07/14 ArturoMora Xalapa, Mexico
I really liked this Hostel. Wi-fi always worked, staff was really nice and was able to give some advices about what to do. Food was also nice, even thought we were a group of almost 40 people. There are only a pair of toilets (one for boys and one for girls) in every floor (almost 30 people), so take it into account for timing.
"Perfect position, comfort and budget"
10/06/14 Alina A Barcelona, Spain
Central position, very closed to Airport connection bus. We stayed in a 2 person room: it was nice, clean, and comfortable... absolutely recommendable! Staff was very kind, smiling and efficient and available 24H/day.
"City center and all what you want"
09/26/14 Boombastics Aachen, Germany
We were in a 10 Bedroom. You have something like your own cab. With a curtain. The only bad thing we've got, was a stinky feet person in our room. And there was only one window. But without this misstake there is nothing to expect. Everything was good. The living room is nice but not quiet. There is a lift, but it's a really old one, you have always to close by yourself the doors. Really funny. I would recommend this hostel !
Had a bit of poor luck. We stayed in a 2 person room. The elevator(tourist attraction) across the street was under construction. The room was nice, but impossible to sleep with the window open as the construction across the street was a bit noisy. Location was awesome. Few blocks away from a subway station. Few blocks away from many tram and bus stops. Easy walk to the square, and tons of cafés close by.
"Mine Gold of a Find! Excellent Hostel, Location & Price!"
09/13/14 Dee K Ottawa, Canada
My mom and I travelled to Portugal in the month of august 2014. We were first staying in the surfing beach town Ericeria, and booked the GoldenTram Hostel online from http://www.hostelbookers.com. We read the reviews, they were so positive that we thought we had made the right choice to booking their hostel in Lisbon. And I’m happy to say, that we indeed booked the Best hostel. Thumbs up to the hostel for: *Excellent location (it’s very easy get around to major shopping, restaurant, cultural attractions just by walking. Metro, trams (to nearby and must see towns e.g. Bellem) major bus station going to other towns and connecting buses to e.g. Spain, are also easily accessible by metro. * I loved that there was a souvenir shop right beside the hostel, which didn’t leave me with a headache and stress for last minute souvenir shopping. *Staff: Friendly, multilingual, accommodating! I love their 24 hour front desk service; we also had good suggestions to the multitude of inquiries we had. Thank you Patrick for being so nice and showing great customer service. * Rooms: we booked a shared ALL FEMALE room, the rooms were comfortable, they had lockers (bring a thin lock, those used for suitcases, not school lockers) the beds were made each day, sheets/pillow cases were clean ! There room didn’t smell old or stuffy. There was AC or open window. Each bunk bed had a plug, a basket for personal belongings, a night light (very accommodating for late night readers or online surfers), and curtains for privacy. *Bathroom: I was so impressed by their bathroom facilities! We all know women’s bathrooms aren’t’ always the cleanest. There were 4 mirrors and sinks, cleaned daily, great lighting, music playing, clean showers with sliding doors for privacy. *Dining: The breakfast was fresh and a good variation and not heavy like North Americans are used to (eggs, bacon lol) but cereal, toast, fruit, jam, teas, coffees, etc.. Were sufficient to get the day started) There was a lovely home cooked meal daily (soup/salad, main, desert) at a very cheap and affordable price. It’s lovely to eat out, but staying in to eat at the hostel is an option. They play great trendy music, people are happy, they serve alcohol, there’s TV, wifi, comfy couches, and decent seating area in the dining room area. ***Overall: I love the vibe of the hostel, very modern and hip. Good ambiance, fun and you feel like you’re on vacation. I strongly recommend this hostel, location & price is always my first priority, and we were not disappointed. I can’t fathom why anyone would want to pay 100 Euros/night for a hotel! Great job GoldenTram!
