Lisbon presents a wide range of housing options, from boutique hotels to college dormitories, and with a little online digging you’ll be sure to find a place. For midrange housing, nothing beats the Lisbon hostel scene. In fact, Lisbon has four of the top five rated hostels in the world! They are a great deal and should be seriously considered. Whatever option you choose, you’ll want to book early because the program runs during high season.
If, on the other hand, you’d like us to arrange your housing for you, that can be indicated on the application form under the “housing” section of the “preferences” page. While space is limited, we do offer hotel rooms (~$100/night), university housing (~$20-30/night), and outstanding hostel accommodations (~$30-50/night).

Here’s some links to get your search started:
HostelWorld: This hostel booking agency allows you to check a hostel’s user-generated rating and to make reservations. We recommend our friends at The Living Lounge. It’s a great space in the perfect location and the nightly dinners are a highlight of every trip.
AirBnB: This website allows individuals to rent either rooms or whole apartments from “hosts” who make their homes available. A great place for self-sufficient types who like a deal.
TravellingTolisbon: Another site for short-term apartment rentals with user reviews.
Lisboa Plaza Hotel: For those with a more generous budget, this heritage hotel is a two-minute walk to the subway and has a buffet with a chocolate fountain.
