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

The hostel has a good location, just nearby Cleridos Tower, which means city centre. Very friendly and helpful staff, plus attractions you can participate organised by the hostel. Cozy, nicely decorated rooms, very clean, make a particularly nice atmosphere. I strongly recommend this place.

We had such a pleasant experience. A cozy and quiet place. We felt at home. The interior courtyard is a must. Our room was very comfortable, spacious and well decorated. Very friendly and helpful people. The possibility to use the kitchen to do our food is a plus. Well located in central Porto, close to the Tower of Clerics. 5... More

It is very well located just behind the Cleridos Tower, and very close to all the interest places such as the Ribiera, Train station, main streets and so on. The hotel was very clean and neat and the service was very good. I really recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Porto. And whenever my boyfriend and I... More

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.
