Facilities were very clean and good (except that it's got no elevator so I had to drag my suitcase to the top floor of the building) considering its low price, location was perfect, breakfast was normal & ordinary hostel style. Staffs were kind but some of them seemed inexperienced and a bit unorganized.

I stayed there for two nights and the room was great, the beds have curtains so you get your privacy. The only thing I would change would be that the water cumulates a lot in the... More

It's impossible to fault this hostel! After months travelling Europe, this was easily the highlight. I was ill in Porto, but almost forgot about everything after 2 nights here. I stayed in one of the larger girl's dorms, it was perfect. Cool curtains on beds, dorms you can sit up in, new bathrooms ( two showers AND a toilet in... More

Spent a single night here. Great staff, great facilities, very nice overall. The only reason that this is getting 'only' four stars is because of the insane quality all the hostels in Portugal appear to offer.

Despite the reservations made ​​well in advance for a group of pilgrims who were leaving the next day to make the journey of santiago, upon arrival at the hostel late in the evening, the boys at the front desk was not no reservation so it was necessary to look for another place sleep at night.

Well located hostel between Rede Expressos bus station and train station, about five minutes either way. Walking distance to most sights in Porto. Very well appointed hostel, an older building renovated in a modern style. Good breakfast and a very large outdoor terrace for lounging.
