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

Great confort and silence, excelent wifi, 100 meters from the Iconic Torre dos Clérigos. This is the place to be, when in Porto. Great hot shower. Very good value for money There are only 2 this that could be better: 1) The closets in Margarida's room and WC where totally full with sheets and towels. There was no place for... 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

Very comfortable stay for great price in a downtown location. I'd definitely go back. You can enjoy privacy of the apartment and at the same time be near all the landmarks of the city. Very clean, welcoming and the price is really fair.

It was a unique experience to stay at Poets Inn. Decoration is very innovative, very interesting and unique, for example in brakfast room you'll find different old radio receivers, murals, and even a birdcage with an origami crane in. :) A writer's name is given to every room; we stayed at "Anais room" with a picture of Anais Nin on...

We arrived in Porto quite late at night but were able to call Sabine from the reception to provide us support with our access card to the room. Super nice and welcoming staff! Recommended! The design, decoration and room temperature were really cozy. This really made our trip!! Many thanks to the poet inn guys.

We had booked a room for 3 nights and moved to another place after two. The main problem we had was that the pictures they show when booking a room online aren't pictures of the actual rooms on offer..though they are so proud of the individual interior of their rooms. To us the room did matter since we went in... More

Hello Fellow traveler, The pictures we show ARE the rooms we have on offer. When booking online you can only chose the type of room you wish (private room ensuite, private room shared bathroom, low cost room, etc), a picture of a room of that type is displayed as an example. If you wish to book a specific room that... More

This was the perfect lodging for Porto. We stayed in a private double, with a balcony overlooking the narrow, not-touristy neighborhood street. It's a quick walk to the ribeira and other good areas for endless strolling. Quiet, affordable, simply and thoughtfully furnished, comfortable common rooms, very friendly and kind staff. Excellent views of the city from various floors, windows. I... More
