This place is a real gem right in the heart of Porto. The hostel has a very cosy overall vibe and the themed rooms are a great touch, it almost doesn't feel like a hostel at all. The beds were comfortable and the shared bathroom, the room itself as well as the common areas were all very clean. The location... More

This Hostal was excellent value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they printed boarding passes and tickets. They offered port when we arrived exhausted! The room was clean stylish and we werent cramped. They even communicated by email with a guide to Porto. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

Poets Inn is tucked away in a quiet street very close to the Clerigos Tower. As one enters, you get a feel of entering a home. A very friendly receptionist (Maria) greeted us and guided us to our room on the first floor. The size of the room was good and the decor was welcoming. They have a well equipped... More

I loved Poets Inn; in the heart of the city, a stone's throw from the Clérigos Tower but just tucked away off the main road, I can't imagine there being a better location. If arriving from the airport, bus 601 drops you a minute's walk, whereas the walk from the Metro station is 10mins & uphill. Although marketed as a... More

Great location. The hostel looks almost like a hotel (nicely furnished, large and comfortable bed, doors with electronic lock). I booked a budget room (BURROUGHS). It was in the top floor. It was necessary to climb stairs (no elevator) but the view from the balcony was nice. The bathroom was shared between two rooms. In the room there was no... More

Very nice inn, great location friendly staff during the check-in and check-out. Super clean, not noisy as other reviews could say. Our room was very well decorated with taste and has everything we would need. We slept so well with my sister, it was hard to leave Porto.

I found this B&B to be lovely overall. The place is very clean, well equipped and prettily decorated, with common spaces both inside and outside. I had booked a budget room and it had a balcony with a view on the Clerigos tower. There is fruit and cake at breakfast, among other things. Location is very central, and close to... More
