We aim to be the most sustainable Hostel!
Impact House has the capacity to accommodate up to 41 conscious travelers who want to visit Lisbon in a different way. With both dormitories and private rooms available, any traveler can choose to have a more responsible stay in Portugal. There are various common areas such as our dining room, living room, the fully-equipped kitchen, two balconies with sofas and a big terrace to relax or participate in our super interesting and thought-provoking events! We even have free meditation classes two times a week!
But what really makes us unique is our sustainability concept!
We developed innovative projects based on the circular economy and in partnership with local non-profit partners. These projects are integrated into the very foundation of the way our hostel functions. Some examples are the compensation of 100% of its CO2 emissions; the upcycling and wooden waste usage as room furniture, our social and sustainable shop, the ecologic and biodegradable cleaning projects, the art gallery for disabled and changemaker artists, our vertical garden; our sustainable procurement policy or the almost closed food and waste cycles.
