What a pleasant surprise - very helpful , close to beach , shops , great food and wine . We liked it so much we are going back tomorrow for 2 more nights... More

Arrivng late, I was cheerily greeted, and offered a choice of rooms. Since I was staying as a single the first night but expecting a friend for the second night, they gave me a double room no questions asked so Iwouldn't have to change rooms in the morning. Breakfast was simple fresh bread, croissant & beverage, served with a smile.... More

500 meters to the start off point for the Portugues Camino coastal route from Porto (Matosinhos) to Santiago de Compostela. Charming couple operate this spotlessly clean hotel located along the tram/metro line from Campanha train station where we arrived from Lisbon. Quiet and light room. Close to pretty city park and good choice of restaurants. Very reasonably priced. Good breakfast.

They area 1 -2 minute walk to the metro and 5 mins walk from the beach. The cleaner Suzanna is just delightful and leaves... More

I stayed here for the recent Primavera Sound festival. The hostel is located 2 minutes walk from the metro and 15 from the festival itself. Although the room is small it was adequate for one person. Cleanliness was excellent and the cleaners even made the effort to neatly fold any clothes I had left on chairs or the bed. Breakfast... More
