Well located for exploring the whole city, an easy five-minute walk from the metro, adequate comfortable room, bright breakfast room with great service, extremely helpful staff for our particular needs. Highly recommended.

This was one of the better hostels, but was still very cold because in Portugal most houses don't have room heating. I did enjoy the place though. The staff are nice and will guide you well, but they are not necessarily very helpful when it comes to changing the bed.

Hotel staff very friendly, room clean, Internet not good in room but in lounge or terrace areas very good. Easy access to all sights. Porto is very nice enjoyed our 2 days there. Bars and restuarants are very good. Lots of places where you can enjoy the local tipple of Port

An average facility bot the location + the staff's friendliness and will to assist us in every aspect is very well worth it! True: the facility is not spacious but being surrounded by cute little pastry+coffee shops, a 15 minutes walk from the center of the city was just what we needed

Rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. Furniture is in good shape. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The prices are quite reasonable. It is a bit surprising that there is no internet in the guest rooms, although it is available in some of the public areas. Also, the breakfast is also rather plain and limited for the... More

I decided to stay here because it was the only place, along with another, that offered two rooms. So after reading the reviews, I chose Boavista. Well, after the experience, I would be back if I had to go to Porto again. It is worth the money because it is really near the city center, just 15 minutes walking (and... More

We stayed here as a group of friends and it was decent enough. The location is about 15 minutes walk from the old town so there arent really any great places nearby to eat or drink but its just around the corner from the metro station which made getting to/from the airport and train stations easy. The staff were very... More
