Great hostel, very helpfull staff, great value for money, great location, great food. the bar is very nice, and drinks and food are all reasonably priced, and if you are looking for something different then the staff are more than happy to help you. Breakfast is included, its a basic breakfast, though is done well! For the night life, there is more bars than you need just around the corner, so it is not far to stumble home!
good, good, good!

Room Tip: all rooms are good, though by the road has a great aspect!

This hostel has it all, excellent service, clean and comfortable living conditions, amazing food, you name it. I was blown away from the moment I walked into this boutique hostel, until the time I checked out. The staff went above and beyond to help you get the full Lisbon experience. This hostel is conveniently located walking distance from numerous bars, restaurants, and the metro station if you are trying to hit up the beaches. Only good things to say here, this hostel is a must for any traveler.

After traveling through Europe for 3 months, this is by far the best hostel I've had the pleasure to stay in. It is in a prime location in old town Lisboa and is not only a hostel but provides some of the best food we had on our stay as well as a very happening bar down stairs with live music and many locals hanging out.

The rooms were very clean and original with a very spacious lounge to hang out in. Manuel was the guest relations manager and an amazing human being. He organized day trips to the beach and helped us find the best night life and food in town. He even helped us plan the next leg of our trip. What a guy! Give him a big high hug for us if you see him.

Would 100% return to this hostel over and over again. Obrigado Independente!!

The Independente has the recipe down pat: style, comfort, attention to detail, incredible service. The rooms are always clean and they provide nice, comfy accoutrements for the beds (BYOTowel though). Manuel, the guy you'll notice tapping away at his laptop in the lounge and spinning great tracks, went far above and beyond to make my trip in not just Lisbon, but all of Portugal, really great. Francisco at the front desk also helped me out a ton. Can't imagine a better spot, especially with an excellent restaurant attached to the lobby.

Clean, spacious, open, perfectly located, cheap. Breakfast is missing but kitchen gives you everything you need. PS3 and TV for your personal use in common rooms. All in all highly recommendable. Was staying in a 6 bed dorm with enoug space for personal belongings etc. Suites supposed to be very nice, too!
