The location is great, close to all major attractions in porto and in a safe area. The rooms are ok, with furniture from ikea, but comfortable after a day of walking around porto. I would definitely stay here again. The bathroom and shower were clean and the breakfast, that is included with the price of the bed is simple but... More

I would definitely recommend this place for everyone looking for a low cost accommodation in Porto. The location is the best you can find there: you are in between the new part of the city and the old part. The room was algo very good: nice views, nice and simple furniture from Ikea and a comfy bed with soft blankets.... More

The hostel is located in a perfect place to visit the cool places in Porto, in the middle of historical places and at the same time 5-10 min walk from the best place to go out in the evening: Galerias and Piolho areas. Ask the staff for tips on where to go, they know it all. They can tell all... More

Excellent location, great views, everything was very clean and tidy, and the staff was always helpful. Walking distance to the train station, subway and awesome downtown for late night drinks. The river is just around the corner and there are restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets everywhere. I highly recommend it...

Hostel in very good location with reasonable prize. The double room we took was very avarage, not too cozy. The corridor is a little bit too dark and the breakfast is extremly simple: toast+jam. The staff was nice and helpful. Recommended for undemanding travelers.

The hostel is located in a very central street. Almost everything is within a walking distance. Rooms, facilities and breakfast are simply but ok. The staff was friendly and really helpful, if you need anything or want to know something about the city, ask them. If you want to go on a budget trip to Porto, we definitely can recommend... More

Hostel was ok, location was pretty good and staff seems nice. The problem is that you almost can't talk after 23 because they have "quiet hours". It's not a good idea if you arrived with group of friends, because they don't have real common room. It's just cauch and tv almost in the kitchen. Very bad idea when the weather... More

Hello! Thanks for the feedback. The quiet hour it's important to have some respect with the others guests. The guest who want party go out and the guest who want rest, stay in hostel to sleep. It's not fair for this ones if you are partying in hostel all night. About the breakfast, you have milk, tea, coffee (and the... More

This is an ok hostel for a good price. Lovely view from the double-room we got in the third floor, definitely worth the money. Good location and obliging staff. It was a bit cold at night without heating in the room, when we were there in February.
