When we were in Lisbon in September, the elevator was working, but the access bridge to the monastery was closed for repairs. Be aware that there is a ticket booth behind the elevator on the monastery side up some stairs, but that ticket booth is not for the elevator. The elevator ticket booth is on the street level to the right or left (I cannot remember which) of the elevator as you face the stairs on either side. There is a small café at the top of the structure.
