Lisbon Activities

At Oasis Hostel in Lisbon, we believe that it's important that our guests feel not only what it's like to stay in a city but what its like to actually to live in it! Our World Famous staff and receptionist have put their years of knowledge together to creat these Lisbon activities and events to give you a true Local Lisbon experience.  Our Staff does alot of tours for free and a small tip in exchange for a smile would help them with chicken and beer money!  See Lisbon or Die!
