A portuguese friend’s shown me The Independente and now I look forward to go in Portugal to have a look. It’s a hostel in Lisbon in a restored palace between Bairro Alto and Príncipe Real.
TedxEdges says:

“The sharing of ideas, stories and emotions happens between tourists and locals alike, be it in its open-for-all restaurant, The Decadente, in the more secluded beer garden, or in the lounge of any of the dorms available, with a concern for the environment and all things sustainable throughout.”

The Independente has 111 beds spreads across 13 dorms + 4 suites with private balconies. I didn’t find a lot of info on the web. But the images tell about a lovely “temporary home” in a wonderful city! Isn’t it?
