Look no further, this is the best hostel you can find in town. From the day of the booking, the staff have been very helpful by emailing me precise indications. The architecture is stunningly beautiful and internal design extremely enjoyable and modern. The staff are fun, helpful and nice beyond any expectation. Rooms are big, full of light, very clean, and their beds very comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the large lounge and equipped kitchen, the bar/café and stunning view: best hostel ever!

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

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.

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.

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).

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for reviewing your stay. There's indeed a lift available for guests to access the 1st and 2nd floors in case of necessity. We do understand your criticism of the toilet doors and we mean to upgrade them asap. The nature of a hostel is communal and tolerant, we really feel for your inconvenience but at times we can only act after some noise has been done even though we try our utmost to prevent it. We hope you'll return to us for a truly enjoyable stay! Sincerely, The Indie Team
