We visited Porto for 4 days and 4 nights in late February. We were four college-age girls backpacking for a spring break trip, and the Porto Downtown Hostel was perfect. Cheap price (about 9 euros per night), generous breakfast included (toast, meat, cheese, rolls, cereal, milk, juice, tea, and coffee), free reliable wifi, friendly staff, and helpful information at the...

The location of the hostel is good with restaurants and bars all around. The first night we stayed in a private room with two beds, which was nice. The next night we stayed in a six bed dorm, which obviously wasn't as good. For the value, I was okay with it. I had to pay €2 for a towel the... More

Found this hostel just by chance at a noisy place, right in the middle of the main partying and pubscene in Porto. It's at the first floor of an old house but it looks inside really much better as outside my friends. There is aan elevator behind a curtain but thisone is not working for sure so take the stairs...

I really can recomanded this hostel. Excelent location in the city center, walking distance from the railway station, also to the metro station which can bring you to the Airport or somewhere else in the city. Staff very friendly ready to meet your expectations and to help.

Rita welcomed us at reception and it felt like we were home. The people u meet while traveling make all the difference. Rita, Vera and Barbara do a wonderful job making everything easier. Their recommendations were spot on and their smiles always brighten the day. Fantastic. Highly recommended.
