We had a great time at this hostel. We stayed there (in a group of girls) for 2 nights in a room for 6. The environment was really stylish, rooms comfortable, with clever space solutions. Location and staff were also wonderful. Incredible value for money!

Super cheap, the staff are helpful and there is a bar and restaurant on site. The food was good, unfortunately the bar closed early during the week but it's close to the pub strip so it's not a big problem. The location is on a relatively busy street so it was a little loud. The rooms were fine, triple bunk... More

I feel sad to disappoint anyone but I wont recommend anyone to stay in this hostel, I got 70 euro stolen from my closed locker in 6 persons hostel room, all that personnel could do was to advice me to go to tourist police, because there are no cameras in rooms or even hallways and it was impossible to do...

Great hostel for what you pay! The only problem would be the noise at nigth, but it's very clean and it has a good breakfast. The rooms and toilets are clean and the social areas are very nice. Great location if you want to party. In the centre of Lisbon.

I stayed for two nights with my friends and we had a really great time. The staff is nice, they speak perfect english and try to help you with anything you need. I liked the breakfast and the breakfast staff, who was also really helpful. The location is great, everything is quite near the Hostel, so you don't have to... More

An amazing hotel and building! It was such a unique place that it was like stepping into a Wes Anderon movie. It is very quirky and the staff are friendly. The breakfast service is incredible, especially the female breakfast host, who sings and jokes and starts your day in the best kind of way. I would strongly recommend this hotel... More

Stayed with my two boys (3+7) and we all loved it. Great location and views, interesting decor which amused the kids and an overall amazing service from the staff. All at at a great value. We loved the old-school elevators!

Such a fantastically unique hostel! Beautiful building, with large rooms and lots of communal spaces. Big kitchen and common room, which is great for meeting new people. The staff were extremely helpful, and there is a great restaurant (also where breakfast is served) which has delicious food for quite cheap. Located right in the heart of Barrio Alto, the nightlife... More

The Independente in Lisbon was in a beautiful location, and very close in walking distance to the town. The kitchen and common room were amazing for a hostel! The staff were friendly and helpful and the included breakfast exceeded expectations. Would definitely recommend.

Great place for alternative travelers! The crew is very informative and helpful, the rooms are beautiful (also a bit small) and the breakfasts are the best. The price is not so cheap for Lisbon but worth it.
