Poets Inn was perfect for us! It's an upgraded hostel so it feels like a hotel with well-decorated rooms and breakfast included but with the cosy feel and amenities of a hostel (kitchen and dining area). It is super super clean! The staff are friendly, speak good English and are helpful. It's located close to the train station, many attractions... More

staff is super friendly and forthcoming, we were 4 and were put in to an apartment nearby in the 3rd floor which was a few steps away, newly renovated and classy furnished. Great view over the roofs and the plaza. Location is central, may be a bit louder but hey, its a southern city and full of life.

Had a wonderful stay at the Poets Inn. The location was great, and the room and bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast was adequate. Only complaint was that sound traveled a lot in the building. We could hear doors opening and closing and people walking on the stairs both late at night and early in the morning. The seagulls were quite... More

The Poets Inn hostel is a great place to stay at. Its location within Porto is fantastic, the rooms are cozy and stylish and the atmosphere is great. Since it is located on a hill you will be having a great view of the city. We had the opportunity to stay in both buildings. Our dorm in the main building... More

Stayed there for only one night but it was time enough to feel like returning soon. The staff is very friendly, the room was impecably clean and very comfortable. It's also possible and easy to arrive at a later hour like we did, there's like a game with passwords and safes to get your key :) The breakfast was included... More

We already stayed in Poets in Lisbon, so we decided to try it also in Porto. We stayed two nights in a beautifully decorated room on a top floor. Since we came with a toddler it was a bit of a challenge, but we left stroller on the ground floor and it was ok. Breakfast was good, but comparing it... More

We had a beautiful room with a comfortable bed. The shared bathrooms were clean and always free. The breakfast was basic but good quality. There are lots of communal spaces so you can always find somewhere to read or hang out. It is pretty close to the railway station and metro, as well as the river. The staff were friendly,... More

I stayed in this Hostel only for one night, but first of all, its interesting (If you arrive late at night) you have to kind of pass trough a game to get your keys and then, because it was not overcrowded, the bathrooms were clean a nice. Everyone was very friendly and it has a great vibe, plus the birds... More
