After realising our current accomodation was the home to a brothel, we quickly made a new booking. Good price, good location. Lots of stairs, and uneven ones. Clean nice bathroom, hot water was great. Although you can very easily hear the plumbing and the bathroom (and associated noises) next door - sometimes it felt like we were in their bathroom...

A great little place to stay. Very central and good value for money. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was very comfortable, big and clean with a nice view of Torre dos Clérigos. Just bear in mind that there is no lift, but that was no problem for us.

This is my favorite place to stay in Porto. It's a very simple house. The rooms are small, always clean, with private WC and TV. Wi-Fi is free for guests and it's really cheap. Some beds are not the more comfortable so make sure to ask for a non spring mattress, you will sleep better. Overall best money value I... More

We spent 4nights at the Pensao during the winter vacation. We booked a economic double room for only 22€ one night. We were in the room 5, my first impression of the room was clean and property, a simple room with a little bit furniture, a toilet with shower. That's what we waited for. The wifi connection in our room... More

I was in this hostel last month for a weekend with my boyfriend. The stay was ok until we left the hostel. I realized I had left my new pair of shoes there, and as we're from Spain (not far away). I sent them a mail asking if there was a way to send me the shoes (I would have... More

I was in room number 3. This particular room was spacious, clean, it looked like has just been renovated, very pleasant staff, right in the center of Porto. I saw another room on the top floor but it was too small, however 30% cheaper.

I was in this hotel in December 2013 and it did not disappoint me. It was just what we were looking for. Simple bedroom with shared bathroom and very nice hosts. They tried to help us as much as possible giving some clues to visit the city, even the language spoken between us was different :) The best thing is... More

There were no surprises when we stayed in this Pensao, everything was as we expected: the room was rather big, the bed comfortable, the bathroom ok (the shower could be improved, but it was nothing extraordinary), and the staff was friendly and keen to explain anything we asked them. It's true that the street was noisy two nights (of three),... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, I stayed an extra few days. Despite the cons I listed, the only one that was a problem for me was how chilly it was at night. I suggest the hotel get some portable heater. I stayed top floor room 14. Single room. Pros: -private bathroom. Great hot water pressure. Spacious. -great views of... More
