Liked : - Good location. - Quiet at night (had a room at the back facing the courtyard, on the 2nd floor). - Not a party hostel but a sociable place, had a nice chat over breakfast with some other guests. - Clean bathrooms. Disliked : - Wifi is really bad. For the first 1,5 days it didn't work at... More

Great location, 10 mins walk to Sao Bento train station. Room is very clean with air condition. Hostel is well maintained, kitchen has everything you will need. Can get pretty noisy at night if the staff didn't try to keep the guests' volume down at reception area.

Absolutely nice hostel, very central but peaceful. Nice garden and functional kitchen. Guests are very mixed and the atmosphere very nice. The rooms spacious and very clean. Only negative Point: the signal of the wifi is not strong enough in the rooms on the 3rd floor.

The hostel is within a walking distance from everything ! Just next to a metro station, which is very convenient. The matress was very confortable, the bunk beds were provided with... More

The hostel has an excellent location and that's it. I was furious to find out the barhrooms were mixed, which I didn't know before and wouldn't have chosen this particular hostel had I known. The building is beautiful and very nicely decorated, but the walls are thin as paper, you can hear every sound, so I couldn't sleep. Also, the... More

It's located on a great street, near important the subway and bus stops. You can walk to many main sights from there. The staff is very friendly and reliable. And the rooms are very clean and tidy. In the morning there is a breakfast.

I left my camera (canon T5i) at the reception, then it was "stolen" from there. No one from our group took it, we had the whole hostel for ourselves. If you want your things get stolen be Garden House host. Angry and depressed, I had all my pictures there, after more than a week of trying to talk to the... More

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
