Loved my stay at the Independente Hostel. The hostel is starting to show its age, but it does add to the charm of the place. The only thing is - this hostel is at the top of a hill, so when you are exhausted at the end of a long day, you still have to climb the hill to get back to your hostel (or you can pay to take the elevators/bus). But the view is hard to beat and I admit I spent much time just sitting at the mirador right outside the hostel and soaking in Lisbon's atmosphere.

Good hostel! Great location and decor. Super clean. In terms of atmosphere, it's not really the place to meet other travellers. It's a bit more like an hotel.

Loved the atmosphere of this hostel! The triple bunks were interesting but very comfortable. The stairs getting to the top were a good addition as it felt very safe. The lockers under the beds are very loud and squeak loud enough to wake everyone up. The location is up quite a steep hill but there is a tram that you can take up. The view is spectacular. Other than that - loved it and will definitely return! They had free food/wine every night which was really fun and a great way to meet people!

The independent hostel is simply nostalgia. The hostel building itself and the interior is amazing. Located at the hill top also gives you a great view of the city. Overall it was a good experience.

I had a great stay at the Independente! My 6-bed dorm overlooked the Miradouro de S. Pedro de Alcântara and also had a view of the Castelo de S. Jorge. The breakfast was pretty basic but there was an option to add additional sides for a minimal cost. The on-site bar had a great happy hour and seemed to be a popular spot for Independente guests and people who peeked in from the street. I second the comment about the place looking like a Wes Anderson set. My only complaint is the noise at night.
