- 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

The Hostel is located right in the middle of the art district which is also very close to the cities historical center. First impression was a really positive one.

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
