The price is really good but the rooms and the breakfast are unsatisfying. The room is virtually connected with the bathroom via strange microcorridor without a door providing no privacy in the bathroom. There is no electrical socket in the bathroom witch makes shaving with a shaving machine quite difficult. Also, this was one of the smallest rooms I have... More

Good location. Friendly staff. Clean. Very very very comfortable. Above all, there is a fully equipped kitchen. Really wonderful place. I genuinely recommend this hotel. Porto is a really worthwhile to visit.

Hotel is well located near the metro station going straight to the airport and on the nice street full of shops, cafes etc. Room was very nice bathroom included. Staff was friendly. The only little downside is that you can hear your neighbour through the walls.

We stayed at the studios Porto Solar for a couple of nights - Superb location in the city center with an option to park in an underground parking on the same street - really close. That is invaluable for Porto (or any city in Portugal for that matter!). The internet was reliable and fast as well (we had our own... More

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

dirty flat with dust on the ground. cold bath. A constant smell of cat pee and not because we lack for nothing 6 beetles around the house looking for friends. Elevator broken after the 2 * day ... so we did not get bored....but Oporto is fantastic! ;D

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
