Does any one have a good hostel recommendation for Lisbon and Porto?
Carrie, You might have a look at the HI Hostels website, as they appear to have properties in both locations. I've found that as they're a chain, the standards and facilities are fairly consistent from one place to another. Having an HI membership provides discounted prices and preferred booking. I always renew my membership each year, as I stay in Hostels on occasion even though I'm somewhat "older". I tend to prefer budget hotels most of the time. They sometimes host student groups, but I don't find that to be a problem. Happy travels!
Here are a couple of links for hostels and hostel reviews: http://www.bug.co.uk/reviews/hostels/Europe/Portugal/index.htm http://www.hostelz.com/hostels-in/Portugal- Hope these help. This is how I research and choose my hostels.
