Location is great, apart from that it's OK but not great. Common area is at -1 and there's not that many people there. Rooms are nice, not dirty but also not extremely clean. Staff is kind but don't give you tips on what to do in the city.

The Hostel is located in a nice part of Porto. On the other side of the street, there are nice restaurants and bars where you can listen to music and drink whine. Consequently, most of the time it is quite loud. The beds are not really comfortable and clean and the corridors and rooms are too dark and unfriendly. Breakfast... More

Comfiest sleep of the whole trip! Very very clean and friendly place. Near city central and sao bento train station. Only a 15 min walk from Gaiia port wine cellars:) Lots of storage space as well and home-y feel:) Id come back anytime! (Plus porto is so beautiful who wouldnt?)

I've stayed at Porto Alive twice in the last few years, and it continues to be a great value and pleasant experience. The location is unbeatable (right next to São Bento Station and minutes from the river) and the facilities are clean and the staff friendly. They were understanding when we missed our first night's stay and kept our reservation... More

I returned three times between traveling around the area. Staff helpful and welcoming. It is a short walk from the train station in a delightful street with a selection of cafes and restaurants. In spite of the many steps and hills Porto is a fantastic city to visit.

We stayed in the dorm for two nights. Porto Alive Hostel is a nice, little hostel in the heart of the coty with very nice and friendly staff. The rooms are clean. There is nothing to complain about the value you get for the price you pay, it even includes breakfast. The only thing which is not that good is... More

I stayed in a double room within the hostel. It was clean but cold. You had to pay extra to get a towel! Staff had a very laid back, not caring attitude. The best example was lack of any food for breakfast and when you mentioned it they replied people normally come to the reception and ask for more (... More
