This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's almost like a boutique/art house. Everything from the rooms with excellent bathroom facilities to the well thought out and designed common areas make this a hostel that much better than the rest. The breakfast is great, the staff are lovely and the dinner banquet is a must. Wouldn't... More

If you are planning to come to Porto, book a room/bed this hostel, this place is great! I am a solo female traveller, I spent a couple of nights in a 4 people mixed room, wide, super clean and with a top class ensuite bathroom.

My brother and I stayed in two dorm rooms and I moved to a double room on the Saturday night as the dorms were fully booked out. The dorms cost €22 and the double cost €60. Breakfast is delicious and consists of bread, toast, eggs, fruit salad, juice and cereal. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. I particularly liked that... More

This is the best hostel where I've ever stayed. Rooms are beautiful, confortable, new and super clean. Staff is great and very helpful (Adriano rocks!), they will even give you a tour around the hostel at your arrival. There are plenty of group activities, such as dinner parties and free walking tours (great to meet other guests). Breakfast is included... More

I don’t even know where to start. This is the nicest hostel I have ever stayed at or seen in the entire world. Other than the fact that we were in dorms room, it actually felt more like a hotel due to cleanliness and beauty. Our rooms were cleaned every single day, beds were made, and a delicious breakfast served... More

Great hostel that is not lacking anything - has all the amenities you will need from bike rental and internet to laundry and home cinema. Fully recommend. Porto is also a joy. Enjoy a dry white port and tonic in the hostel bar - it is fab.

A little way away from the main area of the city in the art and design district (midway between Sao Bento and Casa Da Musica), but the location is still great, with plenty of places to shop for vintage finds, as well as green grocers and supermarkets if you want to self cater. The riverfront is completely walkable in 15... More

Ok what a great location, make sure you do the walking tour with Pala she was a bundle of local history and passionate about sharing it, once we did this we knew exactly where to go and what to see everyday.
