the Garden House Hostel was a great choice for our short stay in Porto. It's located in a perfect area of the city. No more than a 15 minute walk to the river and nightlife, and directly located on the main historical shopping street downtown. Since the shops all close around 8pm there wasn't too much noise after dark. The... More

The hostel is in a good location along a main shopping strip with plenty of shops and a supermarket nearby. It's probably a 15 minute walk down to the river or a few minutes to the nearest metro/light rail station. We stayed in early June and the hostel was booked out as there was a music festival on just outside... More

We stayed at the Garden House Hostel for 3 nights in August and were surprised that it was pretty quiet in fact, altough located in Rua Santa Catarina, the busy shopping street of Porto. Our room and the garden faced the back of the house, so we did not hear any noise from the street during the day. By night,... More

Good location, near the bus and train station and you can easily walk to the main places of the city. When I stayed there it was very clean and silent, with some very nice people to talk. They have contacts of a very good walking tour as well, the wild walkers.

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights, and had a great experience. The place was clean, and had a good atmosphere. Great location (close to the action), and the price was quite competitive with other accommodations in the area.

This hostel is an amazing hostel with lovely staff who are willing to help you with any questions you have. There is a great homely atmosphere and breakfast in the morning is good. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone though the hostel was a bit chilly but easily dealt with.
