This is definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in; they have it all! Excellent location for exploring Porto, sharp modern design aesthetic, quality facilities and above all friendly and helpful staff. I only stayed for a weekend but thanks to the staff at Pilot I saw so much (still not enough) of the city - I'll definitely... More

Pilot has an excellent location within Porto, is equipped with clean facilities and a friendly staff. My stay there was amazing and made use of their 'Pub Crawls' which allowed all people from the hostel to become familiar with each other to create an even more welcoming experience. The staff was friendly and would always be more than happy to... More

We had a great time at this hostel. The location is excellent and the staff are always willing to help out for anything at all. They gave lots of suggestions for places to go and things to do, restaurants to eat it and parties to attend. It was also very clean. Wifi was a bit iffy at times, but you... More

Pilot Hostel is something special. Before I had even checked in they sent me an email to say they had accidently overbooked my room but were going to upgrade me free of charge and throw in breakfast by way of apology. Not many hostels would take that time to solve issues before they even become issues. The staff are friendly... More

Only had a chance to stay there one night because it was fully booked on other nights. But it was a really nice stay. Everything was comfortable, nice atmosphere, the staff was very friendly. Their home made food was delicious.

I was looking forward to stay in this hostel, but I must say I was very disappointed. First, this is the noisiest hostel I've ever stayed in -inside and out. The light is activated by motion sensor that didn't see to see me half of the time, so I had to jump to turn the light on (very convenient and... More

This hostel has many great reviews, but I was not able to share the same experience as many have in the past. We got in late and the employee working seemed to be very confused with the process of checking us in, reading things like, "If you need anything, ask," off of a piece of paper. There were only two... More
