If you’d like to escape from the cold winter in northern Europe, now is the ideal time to visit Portugal. Lying in the heart of the country, its capital Lisbon is certainly tourist-friendly, and will have no difficulty finding low-budget hostels around the central area. Come stay at Urban Garden Hostel and experience a quality stay for a low price.
The reception welcome all guests with a bottle of beer each and a short tour around the hostel, introducing the basic amenities. Ask for a free city map and instructions on where to go and what to eat. There are many fantastic viewpoints for panoramic photographs throughout the city that you need to know about. The receptionists are experts on this! Keep in mind that you will need to pay an extra 1 EUR (~1.08 USD) city tax and 5 EUR (~5.40 USD) for the key deposit. The deposit will be returned at the end of the stay.
Free breakfast and nominal costs for vegetarian dinner
As we are in Portugal, hostel service can’t be complete without great culinary offers. Free breakfast with warm pancake and coffee or tea is included in the price and served daily between 8 AM and 10 AM. Vegetarian dinner is offered for all guests every night for only 3 EUR (roughly 4 USD). If you do not wish to join the shared dinner, cook your own food in the common kitchen. There is cooking equipment and a fridge for use. Don’t forget to put labels with your name on your groceries.
A large dorm bed
There are several room options including 16-bed, 6-bed and 4-bed dorms, all of which are for guests of mixed genders. The bed is larger than those in other hostels. There’s a locker for use under each bed, but you need to bring your own lock. There are showers and toilets for common use at the end of the hallway.
Massive chill-out area
There’s nice common area to hang out with Wi-Fi connection, tablets and computers to use for free. There’s a big television and guitars for guests’ use as well. You are not allowed to smoke indoors, but there is a smoking area outside between the kitchen and common lounge. And if you would rather spend time alone than mingling around, take a book from the hostel’s bookshelf and enjoy reading!
Lying on the street corner just next to the Praca Marques de Pombai Square, Urban Garden Hostel offers an excellent location. It’s within about a 15 to 20 minute walk to the historic central area of Lisbon. To get here, walk straight on R. de Santa Marta through many typical narrow streets of Portugal. You will find various beautiful walls of colourful graffiti and tiny local shops and restaurants. There’s also a funicular stop in the middle of this street.
Travel cheap in Portugal
With all the offers included, you only need to pay 8 to 10 EUR per bed, or roughly 9 to 11 USD. This is an amazing price and you’ll have a hard time finding anywhere cheaper in Europe. Book your stay directly on the hostel website today and enjoy no booking fee!
