If you like design hostels And you are a foodie, this is where you wanna be. The hostel itself is amazing, beautiful bulding, very design, a lot of services And extremely pleasant commun areas. It has a very (very!!) good restaurant downstairs, a lot of locals are going to eat there And a very warm And cosy bar where you can have great happy hours. Easy to meet people And easy to have your own Space as well. Beds And linens are confortable And everything is super clean. A must in lisboa,for sure
Beautiful building, great location, stylish and comfortable design. However it’s the people working there that make this place special. Thank you!
With special attention to Lourdes who greeted everyone with uncommon joy,all tried to help although some did dispense innacurate information, each staff treated the guests with courtesy and respect. The bunks could have a bit more head room. One cannot sit up without a head bump.
If you like to have a nice time you most go to the Independente. Excellent breakfast and amazing location. Also the staff was very nice, helpful and funny; in some cases they give the hosts a free cup of wine.
The staff was super helpful and kind. I wish the rooms and the common area had more light, the lamps are not enough at night.
We have stayed for 5 nights in the Independente (9 bed dorm), and we loved it. The hostel has a perfect location, rooms are spacious, clean, staff is really helpful and always smiling, unlike some other places. This is one of the best hostels I have ever been, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Lisbon.
This is probably the best hostal I have ever stayed in. The facilities are great, is a very beautiful building, the location is excellent, the bar and the breakfast are really good and the value for money is perfect!
More like a hotel than a hostel. The resin is beautiful. Big spacious rooms and great breakfasts. The toilets doors don't give the best privacy but the bathrooms are single sex so it's not a problem. I would highly recommend.
everything is absolutely perfect. Staff so helpfull, nice and handsome :) Clean, secure, a lot of space, nice common space, great kitchen.
Awesome hostel, really great staff and a good place to meet people and go out at night. Modern and clean place as well.
Pros: Clean comfy beds. Lots of room. Cons: No elevator. Toilets and showers together, with pieces of plywood barely enough to provide privacy for toilet doors. Noise in the night from people returning from the bars (e.g. singing/arguing/talking loudly).
Perfect location in front of a viewpoint of Lisbon and near the Sintra train station. The staff was very knowledgable and not like the average party hostel where the staff are mostly young backpackers working for free room/board. I would love to return someday.
The hostel is situated on a hill, but the view was gorgeous. If get a day transport ticket, can use the elevator just a few steps away from the hostel to go up and down the hill. Very close to the train station to Sintra and just 10-15 minutes walk to the river. A very good hostel to me.
Bathroom doors don't close...beside that everything was good VERY comfortable bed, but the ones from the top are very dangerous to climb, it could have a grip to go up
It's nice and comfortable hostel. The rooms are big and spacious with excellent and friendly staff. Everything was fantastic: good decoratioon, clean bathrooms and in the best part of town with easy access to everything I need during my stay in Lisbon. The best hostel I have stayed in and would definitely recommend!!!
One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The location is brilliant, opposite a beautiful park of shady trees,a fountain and a fabulous view. The staff could not have been more helpful. All in all an excellent stay.
Very charming building on a very nice location. The staff is polite and flexible
