I was the one who messed up the booking - not them, so you can imagine their surprise at our arrival at 10.30 at night a day early. I logged onto a free WiFi near the train station on our arrival in Porto, quickly banged out a booking before the time ran out and then made our way there. They... More

Perfect place to stay if you are on a budget. Very central location, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable room, however bathrooms would need a bit of revamp. Bottled water and soft drinks available from the reception at supermarket prices, breakfast also available for a very reasonable price.

Stayed with a friend in a twin room. Good value, the staff were friendly and the room was cleaned everyday and we were given fresh towels, water was hot on demand in the bathroom. No tea / coffee facilities, but there are a few supermarkets and cafes very nearby. Did not have the breakfast so can not comment on that.... More

Room was too hot, no air conditioning. Bed was just about ok. Overall the room was kind of depressing - probably reminded some Portuguese guests what it meant to live under the Salazar regime... That said, on a budget it probably doesn't get any better.... Functional and no frills...

For what you pay this has to be about the best there is around - Anywhere! Great location, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, and all and a fantastic price! If you're going to stay in Porto and you are on a 'Budget' - this one is for you - you'll find it hard to beat - really!

Very good location is the only thing good to point out. Old building, old furniture, old floor and old walls, dirty. Everything is quite old although clean, but for their price range one can find better accommodation. The furniture should be renewed, also they have blankets instead of duvets. The heating system is also old and inefficient for the winter... More

The hotel is centrally situated and right next door to the Colluseum Theatre just around the corner from the shopping area and the Majestic cafe (a must) and close to Bolhoa metro. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by and within easy walks of most landmarks and some beautiful architecture. The rooms were a little tired but linen was immaculate... More

If you are looking for a cheap accommodation, in downtown Oporto, Escondidinho can fit your expectations and your needs. Hotel rooms are partially hosted in the nearby Coliseum theater, that is why they are old, noisy and with peeling walls. The rooms are standard, with no amenities, but perfectly acceptable, considering towels are changed daily, the breakfast's included and friendly... More

My stay at the hostel was fine, the only bad thing is that you can't invite anybody to visit your room
