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! (And I've stayed in hostels all over Asia, Europe, Australia, North and South America, etc.) We were in Porto for 3 days, and this hostel was excellent in every... More

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

One of the finest hostels we've ever seen. Enthusiastic and helpful staff, great location, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Very clean. Great breakfast. Custom map is a real bonus. The free walking tour with Katarina was excellent.

- The staff here were amazing. So nice, friendly, helpful, insightful... They were awesome. I got the sense that they wanted to actually be friends with you and hang out and eat together, but they were still professional in how they went about it. Fred was the best! And the other guy that looked like Fred, can't remember his name.... More

The staff is absolutely wonderful and so helpful. I was in a triple room which was spacious and clean. I even opted for dinner at the hostel instead of at a local restaurant in Porto and I don't regret that decision! Dinner was prepared by staff and consisted of traditional portuguese cuisine with appetizers, lots of wine and dessert. Delicious!... More

This well-located hostel is in the art-area of Porto. The house is so charming, very well decorated and I think it is more than a hotel (but the price like a hostel). It is one of the nicest hostels I've ever been and I can recommend it in every way!! Everything is withing walking distance! The staff is sooooo helpful... More
