really bad experience in this hostel. We've got an apt on the separate depandance (747 rua s.ta caterina) and we had an ugly surprise since the first night: cockroaches coming out from all around (3 the first night; 2 the second night); dust and bad smell in the little room. Other friends travelling with us were more lucky as theyr... More

The single room was actually a double with nice bathroom and forniture. The location is central and nice. It could be noisy in the night because of Porto's nightlife. The responsable of the structure is very friendly and he suggested me all the locations to visit.

The positives: the staff is nice and the location on Santa Catarina is decent (although this hotel is in the less nice part of Santa Catarina). It's nice to have a kitchen for basic things. The price is low, but other Porto hotels are a lot better for a few Euros more. The negatives: one reviewer previously wrote "the cleanliness... More

Stayed for two nights. Rear facing room quiet and functional. Electric panel heater adequate. Bed comfortable and bathroom serviceable. Booked breakfast for both days. On day one staff were late getting up and breakfast was half an hour late with almost cold coffee. On day two breakfast was on time however, the already small quantity was reduced further. Would stay... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights during our vacation in Portugal, one night at the beginning of the trip and one at the end. The hotel is a five minute walk from the nearest metro stop which makes it convenient to reach areas of the city and the main train stations. Our first room was clean and had... More

This place has really good prices for what they offer. When I check in, the lady gave me a map and indicated me the good places to visit. My room was small, had tiny but nice porch with a tiny table and chairs. A bit noisy if facing the main street (specially if the Porto soccer team win a game),... More

Check in went really smoothly. The people at reception, I believe they're the owners, were really lovely! There was an issue with my card and they let me pay the next day to make sure nothing came out of my bank account. They wouldn't let us pay with anything else until I made sure. They gave us a map and... More

If you can handle not judging a book by its cover, this place rocks! The outside of the building in no way indicates the state of the interior. It isn't fancy at all but it is great value for the money.The location is great, on the shopping street of Santa Catarina and a short walk away from the main sights,... More
