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!"
"The facilities were clean, modern, and even eco-friendly! All the staff were extremely friendly and really help you make the most out your stay in Portugal. If I ever do return to Lisbon, I will be sure to stay here again!"
"I had the opportunity to enroll two of these camps and I recommend it to anyone who wants to create a huge impact in people's lives. Home is the most important place in the world, and being able to improve it for people in need is a beautiful and fulfilling thing."
"I did 3 weeks in the Construction and Renovation program and had a wonderful experience. The staff and the people I met were all really helpful and great people."
