Location is fantastic, just around the corner from the Clerigos tower and Lello bookshop. The room (Genet) was fairly comfortable but sparse; the double bed was 2 singles attached, with an annoying gap in the middle. Breakfast was self-service and budget - rolls, ham, cheese, cheap orange juice, one type of cereal and coffee. Staff were very friendly.

Great Location and clean room. Had to leave at 7am to catch a flight, breakfast was at 8am with no flexability on that, milk to make tea was only available at 8am as was coffee. I base the following comments on the warm welcome we received throughout Portugal & Spain. With a few low cost modifications (milk in fridge, coffee... More

Staying at the Poets Inn was such a lovely experience. Great location in the city centre and we walked to the Ribeira in 10-15 mins. Our room was spacious and very clean and comfortable, with a little balcony and amazing views over the city! Breakfast is included, it is quite basic but still a bonus! Nice clean common areas and...

This hostel is a cut above most! It's immaculately clean and well decorated. We really enjoyed the Kerouac room with a small balcony facing the street. The breakfasts are very good and the staff very helpful. The location could not be better!

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
