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

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
