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...

Great location, right in the nightlife centre of the city, close to the river and close to everything you need! Clean rooms, a clean kitchen and really nice staff! Amazing breakfast included! Definately the place to stay when you're in Porto!

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.

We were introduced to this hostel from information center. When we stepped in Vera gave is great welcome. She was so fabulous and outgoing which are not so rare in hostel staff. Five stars for Downtown hostel staff. Location is great since it was close to center the downtown yet it may be noise at night due to late parties... More

We just stayed for 2 nights at the Porto Downtown Hostel. It's in the center of Porto. The staff is really really friendly and helpful! I recommend this hostel for young people who like partying (it's in the party area). The facilities are really good and clean but the breakfast is not really good (but you can have free tea/coffee/hot... More

Yea, what can I say about the downtown and the two (nice) "crazy" girls who run this hostel ? ? ? Maybe the hardest fact is, my plan was to stay only for a few days or max. a week in Porto but in the end I've been there for six weeks because Porto and the hostel are really beautiful... More

What made this hostel stand out from the others was the staff actually made an effort to try to remember each of the guests names. It seems like a small thing, but when travelling its these sort of things that just make the experience so much more enjoyable. The hostel as such is located really downtown close to a lot... More
