Super friendly hostel in a beautiful city. The hostel has all the things you will need and more. The staff are very helpful - they even invited us to join their staff dinner when we returned too late for dinner time. Highly recommended.

And the bathroom is giant and like new. Ideal to share with some good friends! Last but not the least, the breakfast is TOP! :) The... More

This place has it all. It is so good you feel like you are not in a hostel but have checked into a fancy boutique hotel. The welcome is so comprehensive and friendly, there's a free walking tour of the city every morning, the breakfast is high quality, the beds and showers are like new. It is impossible to fault...

It was my first time traveling to Porto. From the moment I entered the hostel to the moment I left the staff has been super available and friendly, explaining how the hostel works with a very nice tour. I arrived before check-in time (3pm), so I got the opportunity to leave my luggage in the storage room. They also gave... More

The staff are very helpful and the location is perfect, try the dinner option to meet some other travelers and make sure you ask for some local secrets! I would look no further than this place if staying in Porto.

What a lovely place - highlights for me: 1) Sun terrace, and a private balcony in our mixed room 2) gorgeous 3-course sit down meal with the staff and fellow travellers, meant we had a really good chance to chat about the area, meet people in the hostel for a night out, and ended up hanging out with a cute...

Very friendly and helpful staff (reception as well as kitchen/cleaning). Clean and spacious rooms. The daily dinners are a great opportunity to meet people. The food and wine were delicious! I would definitely recommend this hostel!
