Designed for the modern day global traveler
This building opened its doors in 2011 as a luxury
hostel concept with amazing facilities for travelers
and backpackers. Created in a beautifully restored
19th century building, Gallery Hostel offers its guests
with an authentic Portuguese experience and
hospitality. Our concept is based on art, where every
room is named after an important local artist and
designed based on their work. An exhibition space
was also created to allow new artists to showcase
their work. The Gallery Hostel building mainly
represents contemporary artists of our community. In
2015 and 2019, extending our portfolio, we opened
Gallery Home and Gallery Townhouse respectively.
Gallery Home represents classical artists with
heritage elements of Portuguese culture whereas
Gallery Townhouse is contemporary artists.
The latter, also a 19th century building, maintains its
historic ceilings, hand-carved moldings, and original
manual dumbwaiter. Both additions brings extra
com fort and privacy to our guests, with uniquely
themed and designed private rooms and suites. Even
the private gardens and entertainment rooms provide
an opportunity to socialize with other fellow guests.
Every property has their own common kitchens,
lounge and garden patios. This year, our main building
underwent a significant facelift to provide our
residents with an enhanced experience throughout our
brands. We added a bespoke restaurant, a vibrant bar,
and improved terrace whilst maintaining our
art-themed concept. We look forward in welcoming
you to our newly re-invigorated offering.
