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!

I haven't written a review in a while, but this hostel surely surpassed my expectations and is the best hostel I've ever stayed at so I had to write a review!

My first time in a hostel for over 10 years and I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The staff are welcoming, informative and friendly. I chose to have dinner at the hostel 2 nights out of the 3 I stayed and had a lovely time each night. This isn't a 'party' hostel, but I did meet people... More

A very nice place in a very good location with the Friendliest staff ever. We unfortunately had a short stay there but it was a great experience. They offer a free walking tour, that was very interesting and knowledgable for the first day in Porto. Don't wanna describe anything more, cuz you have to go and try it by yourself..

We stayed here last month for my hen do, and could not have stayed anywhere better. Such a lovely hostel: clean, good food, lovely staff, plenty of space to socialise outside of the room. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend to others.

1. Location was good. It's quite far from the metro station, but I could walk all day long and didn't need public transport in oporto (except the first day I came from the airport). 2. Staffs were awesome and gorgeous. They were friendly, helpful, nice, and very good at English :). 또 한국어로 된 지시문도 줬어요!!ㅋㅋㅋㅋ (They gave me a... More
