Coolest New Hotels: Independente

Courtesy of Independente Hostel & Suites

Independente, Lisbon

This 19th-century palace-turned-hostel, located at the border of the Bairro Alto and Principe Real neighborhoods, is the passion project of three local brothers. The design mixes rustic wood-framed bunks, old typewriters, and vintage rocking chairs with original ornate moldings and floors. Ninety beds spread across 11 dorm-style rooms, each with a private lounge, and there are four suites with private balconies overlooking the Tagus River. El Decadente, a Portuguese restaurant, is a destination in its own right.
