During our stay, the manager was very rude. The hostel was unclean, I found a GEM on the bed. The good position in the city that they say, are a totally lie. Terrible, terrible hostel. Don't recommend to anyone.

Bom dia Luis Sousa, We were surprised about the stay you have described which shows the contrary of the feedback we've received on the other reviews. So, we have checked on our records and we cannot find either your first or last name on the Police declarations we have sent on October 2019 (by Portuguese law, we have to register all our Guests on checkin). You have surely posted this review on the wrong page as we are few properties with a similar name. Could you please contact Tripadvisor in order to fix that? Thanks a lot for that. Best regards, Julien Ribeiro Owner.

I spent a week in this hostel while working in Porto and it was a great stay. Everything was perfect. No problems at all. It couldn't be more clean and also the beds are comfortable. The curtains are useful to have the privacy you need. When I booked they also kept me the lower bed of the bunkbed just because mine was a long stay, even if I didn't ask for it and I have really appreciated that.

Welcome to URBAN GARDEN Hostel, a wonderful, well-located, fully-functional, always-clean place to stay. I stayed there in 2017, 2018, and again now, in 2019. * Each staff member is poly-lingual, very helpful and well-informed about this beautiful, unique city, providing maps and detailed information re: local events and places to visit. * The common areas have a flatscreen TV, Netflix, PS4, and a computer available to guests, as well as reliable, FAST Wi-Fi, outdoors and in all of the indoor rooms. * There is a terrace, an outdoor bar, and a beautiful, well-planted yard, complete with hammocks, and outdoor restrooms. * Each bed has privacy curtains, a power source, fan, and shelf for personal items. Spacious lockers, with built in locks are beneath the beds. * The super-clean kitchen is well-equipped for guests who choose to cook, and several grocery stores are nearby. The dining area provides ample tables and chairs. * I am often in Porto, and this place is definitely my “GO-TO” place, always. I recommend that you “Treat yourself !!” Stefan.

This is only about the garden restaurant, which is open to the general public. The hostel is already pretty well-known, that the garden restaurant is open to the public is less well-known, as there is not much publicity for it. Firstly, the setting – a spacious layout in a big garden with trees and sculptures. You can move your table around to suit (for instance, into the shade! There is an interesting menu, the15 EUR lunch is excellent value. The staff have a lot of ground to cover between the house and the garden but remain friendly and efficient. Of course, if it rains or is cold this all changes but on a normal summer day it is superb!
