WANT TO DO SOME FUNKY STUFF IN LISBON?
We collected some of our favorite programs:
Family Dinner at Lisbon Old Town Hostel!
A couple of days per week the family of Lisbon Old Town Hostel grab the pots and the pans to prepare some nice food for everyone. The food we prepare sometimes is more traditional, others is more creative, but always delicious! At about 20:30, guests and friends come together around a large table to eat, drink and especially enjoy each other's company.
Since there are no written arguments to prove the quality of this event, we invite you join us for a Family Dinner. ;-)
Full day Tours in Van with Duarte 'Keeping it Local'!!!
It all started as a simple tour to a place that Duarte calls home – Sintra! After that day, he realized that it was more than a tour; it was a unique day trip that should be shared with everyone. He became amazed how his knowledge and passion for Sintra could bring so much happiness to others and how inviting those to his family farm would lead to an unforgettable day with his guests!
So Duarte decided to design a new concept of local and fun Tours, creating an experience that he shares with his guests to places they would otherwise never visit, enjoying every minute of the day with them... The dream finally came true and Duarte founded his own company "Keep It Local" that sums up the essence of the tour!
If you want to see and feel some amazing places in Portugal, REALLY like a local and with a local, hop on the van and get ready, because you will be surprised with the experience … Can´t miss it!
Book by E-mail, WhatsApp, Facebook or simply at the Reception of the Hostel one day in advance!
Keep It Awesome, Keep It Local!
Surf Lessons at the Gota d'Água School
If you always wished to learn how to surf and never had opportunity, this is your chance. The teachers and Gota d'Água Surf School know the coast of Lisbon like the palm of their hands and will take you to the beaches with the best waves of the region.
Interested? Just let us know in the reception of the Hostel the day before, so that we can organise and arrange your Surf Trip of one day. When the time comes, they will come to the hostel and take future surfers for a full day of adventure and fun ;-)
Free Walking Tours
These guys take you on a free walking tour in Lisbon every day. It's one of the best ways to get to know Lisbon from our hostel. They take you to the places and tell you the stories that you can’t find in your guide book. Visit the historical Alfama, the Flea Market, try the Ginginha and watch the beautiful Lisbon landscape from different viewpoints.
The guides don’t get money for showing around the city. If you liked the tour, they are accepting some tips. How cool! :)
Long story short: You party! :)
These guys also organize a drinking tour in the well-known Bairro Alto, where all the Portuguese nightlife is. Get to know Portuguese drinking habits, where to go, what to drink, meet new people, dance until morning light and interact with the enthusiastic guides!
Every night pick up from the hostel. Lisbon nightlife always starts here! They will explain everything on the spot.
Extreme Jeep and Van Tours
Nuno, Filipe and Gonçalo are 3 young locals, who are in love with Lisbon. They want to share this enchantment with you.
They are like any genuine Portuguese: they love sharing all their stories and experiences about Lisbon. They are not traditional guides, they are more like a great traveling companion driving a cool convertible jeep specially prepared so as to you don’t miss anything of the 7 hills of Lisbon nor its surrounding villages and charming places.
Check what trips are they doing when you are coming!
