Lisbon is famous for its scenic lookouts. This small viewpoint is only about 6 hectares in size, with a small gazebo, and a pond – truly charming. It looks over the pretty east Lisbon area of Baixa, and the Tagus River. If you can’t identify the buildings are laid out below you, don’t worry! A tile mural on the balustrade is a helpful guide, and will point out the Castelo de São Jorge. At sunset and night, the view is at its most spectacular, especially with the castle and the Cathedral lit up. In the day, it’s shady with trees. It is one of the more romantic spots in the city.
- Ride the Elevador da Gloria next to the lookout.
- St. Peter of Alcantara Bus Station: Bus number- 202 and 758

My recent stay at the “Independente Collective” in Lisboa was completely TERRIBLE. I stayed in this Hostel for around four nights and throughout my stay I felt very unsafe. The place wasn't homely, neither did it cater well to the needs of the people. What made it worse was a terrible experience I had New Year’s night staying in a mixed dorm. A man, crippled on one leg (claimed he was drunk when questioned, which I don't agree with) took advantage of a girl who was very drunk and unconscious in my room, suffering no consequences. Thankfully I was awake to complain about what had happened, but what was the point of complaining when NO ACTION WAS TAKEN. Hearing what was happening below my bunk bed, I was alarmed and scared, and shocked at the audacity this man had to even go near her bed, it made me wonder that if he wasn’t crippled, I could have been the victim of this terrible event. In my frightened state, I was eager to get the hell out of the room as soon as I could, to go down to the reception to give a complaint. The receptionist there said he would check on this man, but couldn't kick him out yet, because they serve a two warnings policy. And so when he went to the room, the man was in a very questionable state near the bed and another warning went out. Speaking with the receptionist again, he said that he had contacted the manager and she said that they would throw him out. I was glad to hear the news, and as you can imagine, I got NO sleep that night or the next because it was pretty traumatic, knowing he was still in the hostel and what was worse was that this girl had no idea what had happened to her because she was unconscious the whole time. The next morning, I asked again if they had kicked him out, they said they didn’t kick him out, that he claimed to have been drunk and couldn’t remember anything (how convenient) and they told me I had no proof of what had happened and that they would talk to the girl. The point is that the damage was already done to the girl, and she had no recollection of what had happened, and since the complaint didn’t come from her and from me (a second person), they couldn’t do anything about it. They gave this girl a random explanation and changed her room after I had requested them to do so. Two days later he was still in the hostel, and I had asked them again, and they said that it was this sick perverts’ birthday, and when I asked if that was a reason to keep him in the hostel, they said yes and that it was also a holiday. With this man still in the hostel, would you feel safe? I felt very unsafe to walk around the hostel or even use the washrooms, wondering who his prey would be next or if he knew that I was the one who complained about him, because as soon as that happened, I refused to go back to the room, and had to bunk with friends in another room which was VERY INCONVENIENT for them and for me. This was a terrible stay. I would not recommend this hostel to ANYONE.
In the overall was nice for a cheap price you Can get a room plus breakfast (wich is good too).. The only bad thing is that your roomates Can be pretty noisy sometimes wich makes it hard to fall asleep. The staff was nice and educated!
Great location. Situated in the Bairro Alto district, which is a cool and happening neighborhood. Each bed has a safety locker (quote a big one) so that's very convenient. The hostel is clean. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained too. The breaksfast is from 7:30 to 10:30, which is quite decent too. Overall a decent hostel for a short stay.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in my life. Their deco, rooms, restaurant, lounge areas are incredible! Everything was super clean at all times and its location is great. Above all, it was very well priced, perhaps its unfair to compare it with other hostels in Europe, but this was a great value! Definitely recommend it!
Great hostel! Nice common areas and friendly staff. Would 100% go back! Right next to the best bars in Lisbon as well
