Our Destination Story Our Destination Story
Destination Hostels started on mid-November 2007, with two friends who shared the same joy of traveling. Both had seen a bit of the world. By opening a hostel (Alfama Patio Hostel to start with), they could somehow keep traveling through their own guests. At that time, they were one of the first 10 hostels in entire Lisbon!
Our hostels are a fusion between a Boutique Hotel, a Chic Hostel and a “Summer Camp”. We are delivering a true insider experience to our guests to make them feel at home and comfortable with us and within the community in order to give them the opportunity to make new friends and connections easily.
Nowadays, Destination Hostels is proud to have 3 different properties in Lisbon (Lisbon Destination Hostel, Sunset Destination Hostel, Alfama Patio Apartments), 2 in Algarve region ( Hi Arrifana Destination Hoste, Arrifana Destination Boutique), 2 in Porto Santo in Madeira’s Island, a Tour company ( Lisbon Destination Tours) as well as a new concept of Caravan Hostel (Anywhere Destination Nomad Hostel).
