Accommodation is worth its price (a valuable offer). We felt very safe there. It is located in city centre, next to the Mercado Bolhao (great for acquiring fresh fruits and vegetables) and Rua Santa Catarina (main pedestrian street). Room and bathroom was maintained clean.

This place is only for budget travellers! I stayed there first time 9 years ago and when I came back after such a long period unfortunately I can't tell that the service is the same! Cleaniness issues, dumpness and even older interiors. Just for people on a tight budget and you'll probably not enjoy it! Rethink.

Bathroom is not clean and toilet flushes like it is 1934. Location was good, nearby the metrostation. The people where helpfull though en provided us with maps and told us... More

We booked the double room with private bathroom online and we regretted paying for the whole stay before seeing the room. The hostel is situated not far from metro station Bolhao, in quiet but ominous looking neighbourhood. The room we got was the worst one we ever stayed in - with dirty walks, floor, old furnitures. The wifi didn't get... More

We had stayed there just for one night and it was worth. This hostel itself is tiny, old and a bit humid. Eventhough the room was really small, we had our own sink in and another benefit was that towels were provided. Otherwise it was clean and in a walking distace to sights.

firstly this is not a hotel, it is a hostel/guesthouse type place. Old, tatty, plasticky, scary. We booked a room for 45 euros only to be told on arrival that the room had been given to others and that they had emailed Booking.com to inform us. We received the email the day after. They offered us another tiny dark room... More
