«This hostel is the most fantastic place you can go to in Lisbon. There’s nothing like the Destination Hostels, amazing locations, staff, and the rooms are great! I mean, what kind of hostel has a POOL?! It’s brilliant!»

Jan from Portugal –  Stayed at Sunset Destination Hostel – Review made at: Booking.combig_hello-sunset-destination-hostel

 

«Arrivées le soir a 23h, mon groupe d’amies et moi avons été chaleureusement reçu par un personnel agréable, simple et bienveillant. L’auberge de jeunesse est très bien desservie puisqu’il est situé dans le quartier d’Alfama, à 2min à pied du Tramway E28, 10min du Tram E15, 10min environ d’un supermarché.

Les chambres sont bien isolées, malgré parfois quelques bruits de tramway des le matin qui peuvent réveiller les sommeils les plus légers. Nous disposons chacun d’un petit casier pour y laisser nos affaires les plus personnelles, et d’un tiroir suffisamment grand pour le reste.
Les douches et toilettes sont propres, le petit dejeuner offert est délicieux (céréales, toast, crêpes à la cannelle préparés avec amour chaque matin, café thé chocolat), la wi-fi est offerte, il n’y a pas de couvre-feu, bref, les services sont géniaux.
La cuisine est en libre-service, et
Cette auberge de jeunesse, qui se rapproche plus d’un hotel familial, propose des activités comme une soirée BBQ les vendredis, ou une visite gatuite de la ville.

J’ai adoré cet endroit, notamment pour deux raisons:
-le côté environnemental de l’auberge. utilisation de ventilateur, tri des déchets selectif et compost, utilisation de serviettes plutot que de mouchoirs en papier etc
-le personnel adorable et serviable. Il y a un roulement du personnel, et chacun a sa personnalité. Mais ils sont tous serviable a souhait, nous suggère des endroits à visiter, des plats à gouter. Si vous avez une soirée, c’est très sympa de discuter avec eux. Vous ne serez pas décus.

La possibilité de regarder l’Euro en direct est très sympathique aussi »

שהינו בהוסטל במשך 5 לילות בחדר משותף ל4 אנשים ונהנינו מכל רגע! ההוסטל נמצא במיקום מרכזי, הצוות מאוד עוזר (זמין לכל שאלה ובכל שעות היממה, גם כשחזרנו להוסטל בשעות לילה מאוחרות), נקי מאוד (מנקים את החדרים כל יום), ארוחת בוקר נחמדה ומתארחים בו אנשים מרחבי העולם. כמו כן, יציאה לאטרקציות מתוך ההוסטל.

«Adorei todo o espaço em que se enquadra o hostel, que permite uma visão maravilhosa sobre a Arrufana. Perto o suficiente da praia (10 minutos a pé) e com uma altitude que se converte em encanto. E o Bar, virado para o mar tem nos seus fins de tarde uma luz, no mínimo absurdamente fantástica.Trata-se provavelmente de um dos melhores spots da Arrifana. Os funcionários eram todos top! Super simpáticos, desde ao bar, até ao restaurante. Tenho q exaltar no entanto o Lucas. O rececionista mais cool que já encontrei nas minhas viagens…não houve nenhum lugar no mundo onde tenha encontrado um tipo tão simpático, prestável, que conhecesse todos os hóspedes pelo seu nome. E isso é incrível. Senti-me realmente em casa. Há tempo para tudo, contar e ouvir histórias, partilhar o dia, foi realmente muito bom.»

«I actually cannot fault this hostel in anyway – probably the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The staff were incredible in their happiness to help in every way possible; extremely accommodating as well as so helpful in planning trips and things to do. Clean, safe, and just a great vibe around the place. And also in the best location – really cannot fault my stay here! Recommended 100%. »

«Best hostel of our trip! Staff was awesome. They genuinely wanted to help and took lots of initiative to create a positive atmosphere, as well as a place where people could meet each other and relax. The patios were perfect. Shout out to Magdalena for all her assistance.»

«싱글룸에 묵었는데, 생각보다 방도 크고 너무 쾌적해서 좋았어요. 테이블도 편하게 사용했고, 옷걸어놓는 옷걸이도 충분했습니다. 화장실은 공용화장실이었지만 기다리는 일 없이 사용할수있었고 깨끗했어요. 직원들도 친절하고.. 그리고 기차역 안에 있어서 위치도 너무 좋았어요. 행복하게 여행할수있었습니다.»

BLOGGER’S SPOTLIGHT: The Sunny Side of This

Every now and then we get some pretty cool guest writers and video producers. Some of them are bloggers and/or vloggers that, at the end of their stay with us, share their experience on the Internet.

Every Tuesday  we’ll give them a little bit space on our very own blog so you get to know them and what they think about Lisbon, our hostels and the tours provided by Lisbon Destination Tours.

 

About The Sunny Side of This: «I’m Isabel, the sort of unofficial and totally self-proclaimed Slovenian-Mexican ambassador. I was born and raised in Mexico but I currently live in Slovenia, the Sunny Side of the Alps. (…) I started The Sunny Side of This to document all the hits & misses and up’s & down’s of my adventures at the Sunny Side of the Alps.»

lisbon-destination-hostel-8

About Lisbon Destination Hostel: «The use of the natural light in the main Hostel’s area, the tall walls filled with offbeat art, and the seamless use of interior plants and greens, make you feel like you’ve entered a hidden oasis. (…) We really loved the overall vibe of the hotel, it’s hip and cool without being fake or expensive.»

sunset-destination-lisbon-3

About Sunset Destination Hostel: «You will quickly figure out why they call it Sunset Destination, since their rooftop terrace bar perfectly gazes over the Tagus River. Like their Lisbon Destination sister, the atmosphere is trendy and hipster but with a more relaxed vibe. (…) »

About the PUB CRAWL by Lisbon Destination Tours: «Our tour guide managed to get over 30 people to join, and broke the ice with a successful flip-the-cup beer game (as if it’s ever not the case with flip-the-cup). Then, he took us to the main party streets of Barrio Alto. »

sunset-destination-lisbon-2

About Alfama Patio Hostel: «The pink walls and wood tones from Alfama Patio make you wish you had a summer home like this to come to. Our room was located in the second floor, and the staircase was the smallest I have ever seen. Just to give you an idea, Alfama is the oldest district in Lisbon, so you can imagine the kind of architecture of the neighborhood has. (…) I loved our stay at Alfama Patio, the staff was also super friendly and the views around the neighborhood are breathtaking!»

About Destination Hostels: «Ce séjour à Lisbonne était fantastique au sein du Sunset de Destination Hostel. Ils possèdent 3 hostels à Lisbonne dans les quartiers fabuleux : Rossio, Alfama, Cais do Sodré. Parmi ces espaces hôteliers, deux figurent dans les six premiers hostels du monde (http://bit.ly/28RUpoG). J’y ai toujours rencontré des gens ouverts aux trajectoires incroyables. Ils m’ont permis de visiter le quartier culturel de Belém à vélo le long du fleuve. Ce qui est sûr, c’est que je reviendrai vite !»
