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

Lovely atmosphere, there is a very good bar and restaurant, where even the locals go often, sometimes plays a band as well in the night.
The Independente Hostel is located right in the heart of Bairro Alto with an excellent position to explore the rest of the city. The building by itself is stunning with a nice retro decor and the kind staff completes the picture. You should also consider spending a lunch/dinner at the restaurant downstairs or take advantage cheap beers (1€ or 1.50€ out of happy hours) served at the bar. The only thing that I would really change is the bathrooms, you'll feel cramped staying in thWC and showers!
loved staying here so much that we booked 2 xtra nights. great for backpackers. the rooms are very spacious
Breaky was great. Big dorm rooms, plenty of space. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff. Overall a very comfy stay.
Key card accessed doors, locker for every guest. Located only a stone trow away from the cities most favoride (pre-) Party district, gettin' some drinks, enjoy live music together with a magnificent view directly in front of the hostel. Facilities are clean and plenty but not build for people taller then 1,8m (watch our head in the Shower) Triple beds are stable, stylish. Rooms are clean with nice atmosphere. Would definitely come back. Kai-Uwe Bäumle
This place was amazing! I had an excellent time! The staff was very friendly and the location was excellent! Everything was within walking distance -- and there was a great view from the window! I was so impressed!
