Let me 1st of all explain the title of my review......sometimes you see photos of a hotel or hostel and you think it looks exellent...and then you turn up...and it isnt like the photos!....
Well all the photos of the Magnolia are 100% accurate....it look relaxing, beautiful & clean in the photos...and it was!
I stayed here for 2 nights on the 15th & 16th October for a football match and couldnt believe how nice the place was. The reception is bright & airy, the 24hr bar area with a TV actually felt like a wee bar! and there is a nice courtyard area to take a beer in. The beer was wee 'stubby' bottles and they were only €1 and a can of Pepsi was also only €1. Breakfast was cereals, OJ, fresh bread rolls, cheese & ham...plenty to fill you up for the day.
My freinds and & I stayed in the 8 bed dorm it was really roomy and everyone had a large lockable locker (no padlock needed). The 8 bed dorm has an ensuite.....and the ensuite was really massive..... it had 2 seperate toliets & 2 seperate showers.
The bunk beds were really comfy and one of my friends rented one of the towels.....he said it was nicer than his at home!
I spoke to 3 different 'receptionists' and they were all 100% excellent, they all that great balance of being professional & freindly.
I have stayed in a lot of hostels in a lot of different countries over the years and this was easily the BEST. Maybe not a 'Party' style hostel, more a small 'chilled' place......... If I ever return to Porto I will definitley stay here.
