Great location, very clean, nice bathrooms and cute rooms. Staff always ready to help. Common area with free internet access, a big television and a lot of movies and books available. Certainly the best place to stay!

Before booking this hostel, i read lots of reviews and they were all good. This was my first time staying in a hostel and i was a little bit scared of what to expect! There was nothing to worry about! It is such a nice place, with the best staff! They go out of their way to help you and recommend things to do. They have computers you can use, amazing breakfast in the morning, really cheap beer!!! We stayed in a double room with a tim burton theme!!! I would recommend this place to anybody travelling to porto!

Stayed there for 2 weeks with 50 other students. This place is perfect, especially for groups of people. Lounge and terrace is great for spending time with others. Staff was also best I've met in hostels, they helped us a lot and had no problems with us partying every night. Also the location of hotel is very good, close to most of places you must see and enjoy in Porto. We also took a free walking tour around Porto, provided by Pancho Tours. If you are looking for cheap and interesting way to get known to Porto, then I highly recommend it. Hostel staff suggested to take this tour, so you can get all information about these tours in hostel.

Very very nice place with an amazing staff...well furnished from rooms to common room. Trip around Porto in international group and Pub-Crawl for night. REally really recommended! Breakfast very good; dvd rent; playstation; huge Lcd TV in common room and books...even if seems you won't have enough time to read because there are always several things to do

Stayed there in a dorm for three nights. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hostel is situated at a walking distance from everything that's interesting in Porto. The facilities are clean and well designed. Free breakfast is very good. Great collection of dvds to watch. Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Only downside (because I really want to find one), the pillows are cheap and not comfortable.
