The Independente Hostel & Suites
Arguably Lisbon’s most stylish hostel, the Independente is located in the stylish Bairro Alto enclave, in two neighbouring mansions that once served as the Swiss ambassador's residence. The brainchild of four well-travelled brothers, it is elegant and warm, furnished with bespoke pieces in neutral tones.
You can either opt for a bed in one of the dorm rooms or for one of the private suites (some with balconies overlooking the Tagus river).
The Decadente restaurant, serving a selection of regional dishes, is popular with locals. Its latest sibling, The Insólito takes up the rooftop terrace for food and cocktails, not to mention fabulous views.
