Portugal, Top 5 Hostels

When it comes to choosing the right hostel, things can get confusing and overwhelming with the amount of choices you have. Most people choose a hostel based on the lowest price, not really thinking about the importance of where they stay. Staying at the right hostel matters and if you are willing to pay a little more, you will not only have a great accommodation, but an experience to remember.

So, I decided to do a series of posts from the top 5 hostels in cities I’ve visited, based on best ratings, facilities, location and prices.

Imagine having an exhausting travel day. You just arrived in Lisbon and all you want is to enter a place that makes you feel at home. You are walking up the final hill and you think if you see a bed to rest you won’t believe it. Then, a smiley face opens you the door. This person welcomes you as if you are entering someone’s home, they start treating you by your first name like you’ve been friends all along, and the feeling of being at home kicks in. The only hostel in the city that will make you feel like this? Lookout Lisbon! Hostel.

I’ve read pretty much everywhere that if you really want to travel you’ll make it happen, as it’s not as expensive as people actually think, which I believe is absolutely true! Still, I’m here to give you a reality check on how saving money depends on the country you live in and the money that gets in your account by the end of the month.

Last year I quit my job, bought a one way ticket to Rome and went backpacking Europe alone for three months. Before going everyone’s question was about whether I was scared and why I was doing it. After returning alive, for the surprise of many, the big question was “how much did you spend?”, to which my response would be the shock to all who were curious: 2000€

I went to support a friend and the fact she didn’t had that much time to spend the day wandering the city with me, forced me to do it all by myself, and I can’t complain about it. Wandering solo around a city I didn’t know was a challenge and I had a small taste of what’s coming next year!

By the end of my second day in Oporto I was decided to make the most out of my last day, so as we went to dinner at some restaurant, I took my map and pen and started working on my itinerary. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE looking at a map full of new places to visit, all the possibilities are there right in front of me, and I get super thrilled and fell like a child who someone just gave an entire bag of candy! Can I do this for the rest of my life, please?

After not travelling for eight months, due to lack of time because of university and work, I got four days off and decided it was time to hit the road again one last time before heading to my Europe solo trip. Seriously, I deserved these days of freedom, fun and wandering around in such a beautiful city.
