The hostel is located in the best area of Lisbon with the best view for sunset. The breakfast is good and there is a big kitchen at our disposal. By the way, the hostel is located next to the best and cheapest sushi restaurant in town.

A great quirky hotel in a very central location. We loved our room with wonderful views over to St Jiorgio Caslle on the hill opposite.

I stayed here for a couple of days in the old hotel in a much older buliding which was in good shape. The rooms are large and functional-coffee maschine on the room but not comparable vs a proper pingado. All very clean and nice. They reuse old material and for new fbtions. the elevator is a must have visited. There...

The Independente is one of those places that makes you genuinly happy! The staff is super friendly and they all speak very good English. The decor of the place is cool in an unpolished and retro way. We stayed in suite 4, a very spacious room with a wonderful little terrace. An amazing view from both the room's terrace and...
