Great atmosphere, really authentic, superb view, nice people and simple but tasty breakfast

Without a doubt, the best hostel I&'ve stayed in! The rooms are great, I adore the decor, very cool! Hot showers, nice common room, restaurant and bar attached (although the bar was being restored during my stay, I believe what they&'re going to do with it will be incredible! It&'s really inside the middle of everything you&'d need to do and the employees and completely friendly and willing to help in any means possible!

The friendliness of the employees really was a standout. I got noiseless sick whilst being there and also the man (I forgot his name) really went above and beyond to get me a doctor and to ask me if I was ok everyday. This was on too of the fact that it is a really cleans and spacious hostel. Make sure you try the restaurant downstairs- amazing!

Great location right near to one of the lookouts. No cost breakfast of meat and cheese was delicious. Washrooms are clean and always available. Very stunning building. Makes you really feel like you really are inside the center of Lisbon. Great view from the rooms.

It was AMAZING. Although we were there during the off-season (early January, right after the Christmas/New Years rush), there were enough people around to create it sociable and have events like pub crawls. When it&'s busier, they have an large quantity of activities that all look really cool. The staff is amazing beyond words - we took an overnight bus and therefore checked in way too early, but they let us hang out inside the common room and store our luggage until we got our room. They asked us how our stay was going, if we needed anything, and asked us for suggestions. This was all done personally, might I add - we weren&'t given a survey, but the lead PR/Concierge manager came up to the common room and sat with us, hanging out and chatting about the hostel. Not to mention the hostel building itself, a former Swiss Consulate, this is hands down the most effective hostel I&'ve stayed in, ever.

I have been living in Europe for four months and have visited over 20 cities and this is the best hostel I have experienced. This hostel has everything from a bar, TV lounge (with English channels! ), computers and a restaurant. The aura is fabulous. The staff from the night receptionist to the breakfast waitress were all extremely nice and helpful. The location of Independente is immaculate. Right next to the portion of town exactly where the nightlife is renowned. yet still silent enough that I was able to sleep when I wanted to. The beds are really comfortable too and I never had to worry about my stuff even though they provide you with a cuby and a lock. The whole hostel, especially the bathroom and the bedroom, was really clean. Cutest hostel in Lisbon for sure. Anyone that visits must stay here!

The helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, and also the character of the amazing building itself was just to die for!
