The Elevator Hostel is the brand new experience for hostelling in Lisbon, right next to the tracks of Lisbon's oldest elevator tram (Lavra) barely a couple of hundred meters from metro stop Restauradores and in one of the most central locations where every attraction is only a stone's throw away.

You may have heard about the special light in Lisbon. The Elevator Hostel makes the most of this. With its many windows offering different views of the city,we are all about light. In a century old building that has been totally renovated in the last year, we offer a number of cosy areas for you to relax in. The ground floor lounge at street level, the top floor lounge with its long balcony where breakfast and dinner are served, the attic mezzanine where even the height of the room suggests you should lay down and relax…
We have various accommodation options to suit different needs. There are double and twin rooms (also with ensuite facilities) and shared six and eight-bedded rooms.

Your comfort is important: every bed is at least 200 cm long, every bed (shared room) has its own locker, its reading light, a power pod and USB charger. There are plenty of hooks and hangers and neat coffee beanbags for you to relax on the beautiful original wooden floors.

You get keycard access to both the front door and your room, bed linen is provided free of charge, as is the extended hours breakfast and the wifi access throughout the building. We think of the environment too: every light bulb is an energy efficient LED and every drop of hot water comes from the solar panels. And all set in an ambiance that is quintessentially Lisbon.

The staff is young multilingual, friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable, as you’ll be able to see for yourself.

From the airport: take the RED line to its final stop. Change to the BLUE line and jump off the train at the fourth stop, Restauradores.

Take the exit nearer the back of the train and follow the signs ‘elevador’ to the surface.

Walk to the traffic light and cross the wide avenue. Continue straight ahead and you find yourself in Largo da Anunciada (small piazza of sorts) where you can spot the funicular. Follow its tracks, up to The Elevator Hostel. Do not take the funicular (yet) as it does not have intermediate stops. Our door is on your left hand side.
