I've stayed in the poets hostel in Lisbon.. Ended up in Porto this trip. One of the most beautiful views from the room... Very comfortable bed I slept like a rock. 15 minute walk at most to nightlife. 5-10 euros taxi to any winery. Less if you walk to ribera.

The people working there are so nice and helpful! They organise nights out with the others, so it is super easy to have fun and make new friends! The atmosphere was great, the hostel was clean and well situated, the train from the airport goes there. We had a great time in Oporto!

We were tickled by the name of this hotel, and really enjoyed our stay. It is conveniently located in the old town and the various monuments can be seen from the windows. We got a bus from the airport which took us almost to the door. AIrport information told us where to get on and off the bus. Because we... More

Nice place to stay, friendly personell and small but tasty breakfast! The interior is really well designed and the location pretty close to the center. The price for a double bedroom is slightly over average but definitely fair and recommendable to explore beautiful Porto!

We were in the #2 hostel, which is tucked down an old alley. It is quite an atmospheric setting and lots of cats lurk nearby. The rooms are very large and you get ornate and atmospheric decor as well... Was very quiet at night, even though FC Porto had just won a big and the whole town was celebrating Only... More

Nice hostel for short Porto visits, with excellent location, clean rooms and bathrooms, and friendly staff. We had a room for six persons with a small balcony and enjoyed it for the few ours we were inside.

Three of us stayed in this hostel as a starting point for a Camino trip. It ticked all the boxes you would require from a hostel. Clean, friendly staff, central position and at a reasonable price. There is even free internet available and an excellent little courtyard to sit in for a drink away from the afternoon sun.... with a... More

Absolutely cracking place to stay, whether you are a solo traveller or with friends. There were five of us in our group and we had the 6 man dorm at the top of the building, which shared a balcony with the room next door. The room was clean, the service attentive and the amenities great. For its price Poets Hostel... More
