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

Great location. Rooms are very clean, but small with old furniture, bed creaks whenever you move. Our room was pretty quiet, but you hear everything that is happening in hotel. Staff doesn't speak any english.

The staff is very available and the location is perfect. The room is very simple but confortable. There isn't lift, so be light! During the weekend the place around the hotel is very noisy, so if you can ask for a room on top.

The only thing going for this place is the cost and location. I had booked a double room, but instead in my room there were 2 single beds. I had been told there was good quality wifi, but it was ridiculously slow. I was on the top floor, with several heavy bags and no elevator. This was OK for me... More
