Hotel/Hostel/Seaside Resort/Restaurant: Lisbon’s The Independente Collective is a Fascinating Fusion You Don’t Want to Miss.
Would you rather: Vacation in a lively, bustling city or an hour away in the relaxing, serene comforts of the seaside? Regardless of your answer, The Independente Collective in Lisbon, Portugal has it all.
Not quite a hotel, not quite a hostel, The Independente is located in one of the most vibrant parts of Lisbon, close to many bars and restaurants. It’s a great place for the young traveler looking to experience the city’s exciting nightlife! The hotel’s staff is sublime, and the breakfast – which is located on the rooftop terrace with a beautiful view of the city – is renowned. With an attention-grabbing design, the hotel/hostel offers a variety of suite and hostel options. If you’re on a budget and looking for an authentic European hostel experience, then the rooms with the triple bunk beds and trendy style is a perfect choice.
