Alive with fluttering laundry, regal buildings and balcony gossip, Santa Catarina, where Oasis Backpackers Hostels Lisbon is located, is smack in the middle of Lisbon's cultural and entertainment life

The adjacent neighborhood of Chiado is perfect for an afternoon of shopping or just loitering in cafes. At night, a few steps from our front door, the famous 'Bairro Alto' ,the Soho of Lisbon, comes to life. The storefronts that were shuttered before have burst open, revealing an endless array of small bars, the decoration of which seems to have been left to young art students and fashion designers. Add plastic cups and no covers and you have one of Europe's hottest and cheapest nightspots.

Whether you are exploring monuments to colonial power in Belem, hiking through the historic Alfama, tracking down the melancholic sighs of Fado, making your way to Sintra or heading off to the beach for the day, our staff, well versed in the art of travel, can offer tips and advice on how best to navigate the city. We also keep you connected with free and fast ADSL internet, Wi-Fi access, Computers with memory card readers and CD/DVD burning facilites, Phone cards and available phone for keeping in contact with the family.

When the museums close and the sun sets unwind with us in the patio garden, enjoy our famously gourmet yet economical dinners, grill some meat (or veggies) on our BBQ, get sauced when we take over a Lisbon club for our weekly backpackers party, or just take our elevator up and down all night. If you just want to stay in and take a break from traveling, we can help with high pressured showers, 9 inches of mattress heaven, clean dorms, Gourmet cooking facilities, Portuguese classes, Ping Pong table, high-brow library, laundry service (we even fold your clothes) and cult cocktail hour where you can trade travel tales over Singapore Slings and some tunes.

How to arrive

From Train Station Santa Apolonia

Leave the station out of the main entrance. Ahead on your right you will see two bus stops. Catch the 105 Bus (Martin Moniz) until Praça do Comércio (5th stop, huge yellow building surrounding square). Head through the big Arch and continue forward crossing three streets and at the third, Rua da Conceiçao, catch the 28 tram (yellow trolley car) in the direction Estrella. Get off at Calhariz/Bica (5th stop). When you get off, cross over and follow down the street Marechal Saldanha until you arrive at the Miradouro de Santa Catarina. You will know you are there when you see the amazing view of the bridge and river. Look to your right and at the bottom of the hill you see a big yellow house with the Palm tree. That´s your Oasis, Rua Santa Catarina 24. The main entrance is on the left side of the building.

From Metro Baixa Chiado

When you arrive, head upstairs where there are two exits. Leave through the one marked Largo Do Chiado. You will see a building marked Fidelidade Mundial. From there look right and you will see a huge plaza, Praça Luis de Camoes. In plaza look for a bank called Caixa Geral De Depositos, and beside it a street named Rua do Loreto. Follow that up. You will know you are heading in the right direction if you see a store with a yellow taxi cab sticking out. Continue on Rua do Loreto until you come to Rua Marechal Saldanha. Take a left on this street, also marked by a sign for the Museu de farmacia. Follow Rua Marechal saldanha until you arrive at the Miradouro de Santa Catarina. Look to the right and at the bottom of the hill you will see the big yellow house with the Palm tree. That is your Oasis, Rua de Sanata Catarina 24. The main entrance is on the left side of the building.

From the Airport

Head out of the airport, in front of the main entrance you will see a bus stop marked by a yellow sign. There you can catch bus 45 direction Cais de Sodre (runs 7-24hs). There is another bus called the Aerobus, which is more expensive and follows the same route - don't take it. After about 20 mins, get off the bus at Restauradores. (Huge pink granite Art Deco building that says Eden Teatro). From that stop, head towards Hotel Avenida Palace. On the corner you will find Rua 1º de Dezembro. Follow that street until it ends then on your left, you see Rua Do Camoes. Follow that street up until you reach Rua Garret. (Large shopping mall on your left called Armazens do Chiado). Take Rua Garret to the right and follow it until you reach Praça Luis de Camoes. There you find the Metro of Biaxa Chiado and you can follow the directions above.

Although the staff is friendly and the location of the hostel is great, this has been our worst hostel experience. When we arrived and checked in, we noticed our hot water was not working. We told the guy at the front desk in hopes it would be fixed by the evening. When we returned that night, the hot water still was not working. We told the two girls at the front desk again and they tried to get someone out to fix things. No one was able to fix it that night. On top of not having any hot water, the room was freezing! It was warmer outside than it was inside. One of the staff members came into our room in the middle of the night and took the blankets off of the spare beds in our room and gave them to people in the main building which was no where near as cold as our side. We had to leave our building and shower in a vacant room in the main building just to have a warm shower. The next day it rained all night and by the time we got back to our room, we were soaked and freezing. We finally had hot water enough for one person to shower but the room was still freezing. We asked for a heater and we were told they only had them for private rooms. We asked for extra blankets and they gave them to other people already. Girls sharing the dorm room also asked for extra blankets and they were given a few towels. Needless to say, I now have a cold. Not having hot water happens but to not be able to provide extra blankets or heaters is ridiculous and should not happen at all especially from a place listed as "Europe's Famous Hostels". I definitely would not recommend this hostel to any of my friends. If I didn't already pay for our stay during check in, we would have left that first night.

Quite possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed at! They have everything that makes a great hostel: Excellent et friendly staff, great food (they have home cooked dinners for real cheap), great tours, outside bar, etc. They make you feel like part of the family! If you stay in Lisboa, you MUST stay with them!

I have travelled all over Europe and stayed in many of the Famous Hostels. I have to say that the Oasis Mansion has not only been one of the best hostels in this network but one of the best hostels I have ever been to. From Bruno´s Day trip, to Mama Linda´s homemade portuguese feats. Thank you Oasis!! I had an amazing time and would reccomend visiting Lisbon for the hostel
