Great views and an easygoing vibe draw a good mix of travellers to this hilltop perch in Castelo. In addition to dorms, you'll trade a particularly spacious bathroom in the en suite double with a nice vanity in the double with shared bath. The massive outdoor patio hosts Balcony TV's Lisbon concerts for their popular YouTube show.

It's a good place to meet other travellers, with yoga on the terrace, surf classes, nightly dinners and occasional barbecues.
