nice rooms, clean bathrooms (never to queue), very friendly staff always ready to help, silent rooms, nicely located in the city center. I would definitely recommend it for young couples and group of friends. Thank you

The hostel provides both rooms and apartments. At ground floor you can find the reception and the shared kitchen, where a pretty satisfying breakfast is served every morning. Nice rooms, with poets-inspired names, are decorated with poets quotes and share a bathroom (very clean female and male bathroom per each floor, separated). Wi-fi in every room, with good signal quality.... More

My wife and I chose The Poets Inn for our brief stay in Porto during our honeymoon and we did not regret it. A pretty and cosy place, right in the city centre. The room Anaïs.was quiet and comfortable - anything you'd expect from a private room.

My friend and I stayed in a private twin room with private bathroom - it was a great value! If you stay in their sister hostel in Lisbon, you get a 10% discount. Each room is decorated, based on a famous poem/poet/story. The hostel is very comfortable - rooms are cleaned daily. Only concern is that the private washroom doesn't... More

The house is very charming, the rooms are beautiful and clean, the staff is very nice and helpful, very good located. We're a young couple and we stayed in a private double room with bathroom. The breakfast is simple but enough.

We stayed in The Poets Inn in a private room with a private bathroom. It was a very nice and quiet room on the first floor, the only thing that could have been better was the matress. For our idea of comfort it was to thin but after a few nights we got used by it. The location of the... More

We had a great stay in a 4th floor room, with balcony. The room was decorated in a fresh design that promoted relaxation. The hostel has an excellent location and the staff is very kind. We got a good breakfast with bread, ham, cheese, cereals, fruits and juices. If in Porto we will return!

My husband and I stayed in a private double room(Genet) for four nights. It is a great room in a quiet corner of the inn with what seems like your own private balcony/outside sitting area. The bathroom was shared but it was kept very clean and we hardly saw our neighbors. The bed was firm but comfortable and the room... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in the private double and had amazing views of the city from our window. There is a free breakfast offered and towels are provided. Very clean and affordable. It is located near the top but an easy 10 minute walk down to the water and there are some great restaurants and... More

Me and my friend, we had a wonderful experience. The hostel has a good location, and the staff were very helpfull and sweet people. Even the atmosphere in the hostel is comforting. Everything was so clean and cozy. Rooms were nicely decorated. Normally we don't like sharing bathrooms but they were very clean. The hostel has one of the best... More
