Budget place for people, who don't want to spend to much time in hotel. Little dark (very dirty windows), smelly, old fashioned (it's good,but this furniture needs to be furbished). Friendly stuff, nice kitchen, close to the metro station. I was expected something better, but after long trip and few glasses of Porto wasn't that bad ;)

I payed 2 nights and i left after the first one. The rooms are very noisy, the blanket was dirty, i didn't feel safe to sleep there.The traffic from outside is very noisy, you feel like you are sleeping outside. I understand that it's a cheap place to stay, but at least to be decent. The walls are full of... More

The Marfim is in good place, about 15 min from main attractions of the city. It's cheap, so you won't spend a lot of money. You should prepare yourself for quite old rooms in not really good conditions, but if you're in Porto to visit and have fun, then it's a perfect hotel just to sleep in. The staff is... More

I found this hostel in august when Oporto was completely Booked. The staff was so warm and helpful; they gave us an accommodation and a lot of instructions to visit the city like portuguese people and not as tourist. There were so many guys from all over the world to meet and have fun. Recommended if you are young and... More

Lovely place with kind staff.Christina, a very polite lady at the recipition, made my visit to porto more at ease. Very quite place, the rooms are big and full of space, bathroom is cleaned every day. It does not look like a hostel. In addition, it is closed to porto centre. I really enjoyed my stay and definitely I will... More

The woman of the reception was incredibly kind with us. We felt welcomed. She suggested us really good place to eat and visit. The room was a little bit old but we had no problem with that!!! The location is good since you can walk almost everywhere from there.

Very close to metro station Lapa, and san Benito train station. Antique furniture. Spacious, clean living room and kitchen..!! Very informative lady, Mrs.Christina will explain the map and interesting places so thoroughly using photographs you actually don't have to research much before you go to Porto. She will even tell you what you must eat and drink in Porto again... More

We were received by a very nice man, who showed us plenty of places to visit on the map. Unfortunately, our stay at Pensao Marfim went downhill from there... Our room was really humid when we arrived and we had to open the windows. The room was clean but there was a huge brown spot under one of the matresses... More

The hotel is around 20min away from town but close to the train station and aeroport. The area is a little bit deserted at night :( The rooms are overall very old and so the bathroom. They had a weird smell I believe due to it. The shower head didn't reach the holder so you had to hold it while... More

This was the fourh stay at this Hotel and it was great as the previous. The reason that I always choose this Hotel is because of the price, and the friendly staff and the location. In Porto I think always to return to this Hotel instead of looking to another one.
