Perfect location, great staff, nice rooms. Just a great, clean, cheap place to stay. You can walk everywhere and the next Metro-station is about 5-10 minutes away. A small minus for the room with not much daylight and a bit dank. But it's a hostel and not a hotel!

Chose this hotel to begin the Portuguese Camino. The route goes virtually right by the front door. The Poet's Inn is in a lively but quaint part of Porto, very close to the city center. The hotel is located in an area of families, restaurants, churches and small stores - very safe and friendly. The rooms are reasonably priced and... More

Spent the 2010-2011 New Year. Great location in the very centre of Porto. Loved the clean rooms and the vibe. Great NY's eve party organized by owner. Was surprised to see Mayakovsky as one of the room names.

I stayed 4 nights in the inn, it's close to the train station and I can walk to every attraction in the old town center. The hotel staff is nice and helpful, if you do not mind they will not clean your room except for request. There are plenty of clean showers and toilets. The soundproofing is not good, you... More

Very clean and neat hostel. It's my first time staying at hostel and the experience was very good. We stayed on the top floor, shared bathroom with one other room. The room is clean and staff are very helpful. I recommend this if you are looking for a budget stay at Porto.

We stayed at the Hostel in Miller room. The room is spacious and the view from our window was amazing. The hostel is located close to shops and touristy places so it was convenient for sightseeing. It's also a short walk (albeit uphill) away from Sao Bento train and metro station so it's good in terms of transport links too.... More

Very warm, welcoming and friendly. Free wifi, breakfast included, kitchen for you to cook anytime. Had a balcony room and shared the bathroom with other travelers. Very surprised to see such a high quality room, would definitely stay here again. The quality can even surpass certain hotels! There are also private rooms with their own bathrooms if you require privacy.

I needed a room with a private bathroom and Poet’s Inn were able to provide us with this at a very reasonable price. The hostel and private rooms are well located, though I did find it a little tricky, at times, trying to get to my room as the private rooms are around the corner from the main hostel and... More

The location was even better, the flat is just around the corner of Praça da Liberdade and beyond InterContinental at trhe new Praça das Cardosas. It could... More
