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.

I stayed in one of the suites and my first response when I saw my room was "WOW". As a professional designer, I take my hat off to the owners. The building is gorgeous and the way they have set it up is simply wonderful. The breakfast was fantastic! I intend to stay in this hotel every time I visit... More

Although the place has rooms for students and young people, we stayed at one of the upper rooms with separate WC. You cannot name it a luxurious place, but it was a good surprise that we stayed there, cause they use different materials in a mix n' match style. Very good people, smiling faces and a surprise for us: the... More

I spent 8 nights in this beautiful hostel. Staff was really friendly and even let me dine upstairs when I was feeling sick even though the restaurant is downstairs. There were couple things I didn't enjoy that much: even though there was regular cleaning, they were too routine like. Only the floors were mopped and windows cleaned once but under... More

I would safely recommend this place. Ask for the rooms in the back of the hotel -- otherwise you face a noisy street. But the rooms are old (in a positive sense), with high cellings and wonderful old window frames, etc. And a nice bathroom. We made the mistake of going to the over-priced restaurant attached to the hotel. If... More

Recommend it to everyone. The coexistence sites are very nice, large, well equipped kitchen, always clean bathrooms and great views.
