Lisbon Destination Hostel is, in fact, sister hostel to nearby Sunset Destination Hostel – our other 5 star hostel in Lisbon.
“Do you know those most important landmarks that are drawn on maps? We’re one of them!”
Rossio Railway Station is an icon of late XIX Century Romantic architecture, and you’ll be sleeping inside it!
That means you can quite literally take a train to the doorstep of Destination, located on the 2nd floor. This railway station is right in the city’s most important square, Rossio. Lisbon’s ‘living room’.
It could be just another hostel, but it’s not. It’s a 5 star hostel, and we want to show you why.
As we already established, this is now our second 5 star hostel in Lisbon. So what are the differences between the two?
Here’s a quick comparison:
Sunset Destination Hostel is also located in a beautiful railway station – Cais Sodre Train Station. This hostel boasts a rooftop swimming pool, rooftop bar, free breakfast and massage service. Solo travellers are going to love it thanks to the organised activities.
Lisbon Destination Hostel has SO much up it’s sleeve that it would be silly to sum up in a few sentences. More below!
How to choose?
Your best bet is to compare prices and availability on their official website. The location is just as good for both hostels.
No doubt you’re eager to jump in. So let’s go!
Lisbon Destination Hostel is a 5 star hostel in Lisbon, Portugal because…
1. Sustainable approach to Hostelling
When we’re talking about a hostel chain that have properties spread across a country, we hope that they take sustainability seriously, right?
Let us use this space to assure you that these guys really do!
“Our mission is to do a revolution in the accommodation market by changing the perception of hostels to an outstanding social experience.”
So that travellers can enjoy this social experience, Destination takes care of the eco-friendly situation.
That’s why this hostel is almost entirely plastic free.
Keep a look out for those all important recycle bins in the kitchens and help the team minimise their impact.
2. Designed with Nature in Mind
Alright seriously, how often do you get to enjoy the warmth and cosyness of indoors whilst being surrounded by plants and drenched in natural sunlight?
The main space at Lisbon Destination Hostel incorporates all of these things.
Taking advantage of the railway station building design, the long, tall rooms have been turned into superb social spaces and a mix of rooms.
And the best part surely has to be the glass roof!
No matter where you choose to hang out, you’ll be well aware of the weather hovering above you.
As for room options; there are a total of 12 private room and 77 bunk beds!
Solo ladies are in luck and can opt for a 8-bed female ensuite with added luxuries such as shampoo and privacy curtains.
Each room is simply gorgeous.
Huge spaces, custom-built beds, big windows and fresh, crisp decor that supports those positive vibes.
3. Unique location
Excuse us for a second whilst we mention again that Lisbon Destination Hostel is located inside a railway station.
I mean come on, how cool is that!?
And it’s not just any old railway station, but one of the most renowned and iconic buildings in the whole of Lisbon!
Which is saying a lot considering how beautiful the architecture of this city truly is.
This icon of late XIX Century has also recently undergone a profound facelift.
Right from the doorstep it’s possible to hop on a train and head to the town of Sintra, a UNESCO world heritage sight just a ride away.
The rooftop light filtering in through the glass into the hostel is also unique. It helps to create a tranquil and upbeat ambience that will surely get the serotonin chemical in full flow.
Without doubt one of the main highlights of staying in a hostel is the social atmosphere.
And we’re here to tell you that the fun vibes at Destination are always in flow, no matter your travelling style.
Solo travellers, couples, families and older travellers – there is something on offer for you all.
Let’s have a sneak peak of what to expect:
Pool table, badminton & ping-pong
FREE walking tours
Though you might be tempted to explore the surrounding pubs and parties, you may find it quite hard to actually leave the hostel.
Why would you necessarily go anywhere when there is an on-site bar that’s open every day from 9am to midnight?
This is where you can enjoy free sangria every evening, after all! Not to mention delicious and affordable meals.
The team go the extra mile by also offering everyone a free daily breakfast. From vegetarian to omnivore, all the options are there.
5. Staff worth mentioning
“Enthusiastic”, “helpful” and “informative” are just a few words used time and time again to describe the hostel team at Lisbon Destination Hostel.
