B.A. Hostel (Bairro Alto Hostel)
Clean basic hostel with poor wifi
I stayed here for three nights. When I booked the room I wasn't aware of the fact that Barrio Alto is the #1 party district in Lisbon, and that this hostel is in one of the busiest areas of this district. Besides the fact that the noise made it somewhat difficult to fall asleep, I was very pleased with my stay. Sure, this is a pretty basic hostel but everything was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and I had a good time staying here. Breakfast was included in the price. It was somewhat on the basic side (bread, jam, ham, cheese, milk and coffee). But again, considering the price, this was expected. What was offered was tasty and fresh. The biggest negative point for me was that the wifi was extremely slow and unreliable. While basic messaging, browsing lightweight sites and email was doable anything else, like uploading photos to a blog, was more or less impossible.

small, uncomfortable, but ok to sleep after 2AM.
Ran out of hot water mid-shower. Apparently there is limited hot water in the hostel. If you want to get some sleep early, this isn't the place for you, there are 3-4 bars pretty much right below it, which I knew about so it's not really the hostel's fault. People are drinking in the streets so it's extra noisy, but the bars close at 2 and it's silent after 2:30AM. I had a single room on the top floor. No lift so lots of stairs, the room was really really tiny! I personally didn't care too much since I knew it was just for sleeping, but yes, it was very small. Also the bed was really uncomfortable! Quite hard actually.
