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.

"Only for those who are traveling in Portugal and do not only want to do conventional tourist staff but have a deeper experience and discover the country. The ImpacTrip initiative is simply amazing!"
"This was a life changing trip for me. I learned so much about myself and what I'm capable of, and that wouldn't have been possible if I didn't have such a great environment to do it in. I would recommend ImpacTrip a thousands times over for anyone looking into volunteering abroad."
"The amazing staff at ImpactHouse, from the cooks to the front desk staff, were welcoming, kind, and all around great people to be surrounded by. It was amazing to see people from all different backgrounds get along so well in the hostel sharing countless meals and stories of each other's adventures."
"The staff is super friendly and welcoming, the house is really beautiful and so peaceful (also its neighborhood) compared to other hostels (big spacious rooms, great decoration, bathrooms, kitchens, cute balconies and terrasse). You cannot find better in Portugal."
