It's annexed to the room Frescos - separated by a glass door with curtains, this makes it a cosy & private space, although with no window it’s a great nights sleep in an air of antiquity with painted fresco walls and blue tiles as old as the house.

Important Information

Part of a 250 years old building, in a typical Lisbon house from the 18th century, Lisbon Calling Hostel is where you'll find out how it really feels living as a 'lisboeta'. We're all about 'fit to size'! Standard is not our thing, so we created a hostel like our own home, where all of you 'big feet' out there can sleep in huge, tailor-made wooden bunk-beds and raised sleeping platforms with views to the church square. If you are looking for romance and something exclusive or deluxe, stay in the themed double rooms, which are in a separate section of the building and almost akin to the experience of having your own apartment in Lisbon. The kitchen areas are social spaces where you can use the fridge, cook lunch or dinner for no extra costs. Feels like you are visiting a friends or relatives home. The free wi-fi is excellent and the super-staff has lots of great tips to make the most of your stay. Brilliantly located in the heart of Old Lisbon, we are five minutes walking distance for night life at Cais do Sodré or Bairro Alto and day trips around Bica, miradouro de Sta. Catarina (known as Adamastor), Chiado and Alfama - turns it into a great place to be in Lisbon. Just ask the crew what to do!
