I booked this place for a night after looking at pictures and reading reviews. When you get to the hostel, there is no sign to know you are at the right place, only a piece of paper on the door with a phone number. The room I got did not look like those presented in pictures. The bathroom was terrible (I wish I took pictures to show) and room very cold. Breakfast was average, but it was the highlight of my stay at this hotel. I don't know if owners are not interested in running a hostel or what, but do yourself a favour and book something else.

I booked a twin room for five nights. The reviews on booking were overwhelmingly good so I thought it'd be a nice place. As we arrived (no sign or anything on the door, just a little sticker with a phone number on the intercom) we rang the bell and there was no answer. I called the number on the sticker and the guy just asked me my name and game a code to open the front door and told me which room was mine. There was no one around so we went to the room. It was clean but VERY bare. There was literally the bunk beds (which swayed like crazy and made SO MUCH noise), a bedside table and a coat rack with 3 hangers. The pillows didn't have covers, and the duvets were paper thin. There was one extra blanket provided (one blanket, for two beds...?). The bathroom, shared, was clean and right next to the room. In the five days we were there we only saw one of the hosts a couple of times, during breakfast, sitting very quietly in the kitchen. We didn't check in or show our passports, or have any real contact with the hosts. There wasn't a reception to speak of. The room was quite cold at night, so I asked for an extra blanket, twice, via message to that phone number on the front door, cause that was the only contact I had. Both times they apologize and said they'd provide one, but the blanket never arrived. The first two days the wifi was weak but alright, but on the third day it stopped working altogether. I brought this up with the breakfast guy and he said he'd look into it. The wifi didn't work again for the rest of my stay. Before going to Porto I asked them if I could print my flight tickets in the reception to which they said it wasn't a problem. Obviously there wasn't anyone around during the day to ask, so I had to manage otherwise. After the blanket and wifi issues I couldn't be bothered to ask about this as well. It didn't feel safe at all having just a code to go in and having no host around, in case of any problems. It felt very much like someone has conditioned the house for guests, barely, and started taking reservations without really planning things out. And at 30 euros per might it wasn't even that cheap. On the good side of things, it was really quiet, the metro station is about 5 minutes away, and a short ride into town, and there is a supermarket around the corner. Also, they provide towels and the breakfast is included (very simple: coffee/tea, bread, butter, jam).

We arrived on time as stated in our reservation Nov '18. There is no big sign, just the number over the brown door, but we found it....nobody opened the door when ringing several times. The phone number next to the door bell was unanswered. Finally when calling the phone number on the reservation papers we got answer and were left in with the door pin code...inside still nobody was there and we should wait for beeing called back. The call came in eventually and we were given our room by phone, the keys were left behind. The room was freazing cold but rather clean and without blankets; those were promised by the evening and finally were brought to our room after calling the host again. Until our "checkout" we did not see any of the hosts, did not show our IDs, did not pay the tourist fee because there was nobody to take it....just like if we had never been here. That's not friendly nor welcoming at all. Breakfast was made by some young guy and it was simple as expected. Some bread, ham, cheese, jam, coffee and juice, cereals etc. That's alright and the only "good" thing...we won't choose this place again.

Had to look for the building as it has no big sign, but the number is written on the door so it wasn't hard to find. Judt after my booking I received a welcome sms from a staff member with the entrance code to the building and some info, so I knew what to do. The twin room I booked looks nicely styled with a pretty wooden floor and everything looks tidy and clean. Staff is friendly, all looks organized. My roadside room was a bit noisy though with a busy road passing under the windows. Next time here I would request a room on the other side. The hostel is very close to restaurant Estrela do Lima where I had a lovely Portuguese dinner.

During the entire stay I had a feeling that the people who run this hotel have absolutely no idea what to do. Firstly, there is no sign on the building but a little paper next to the bell saying “Brothers hostel”. When we rang the bell one person came and he let us in without saying a word, making me think he is a guest and not a receptionist. Once we communicated who we are we entered the ground floor room (the only one). Pillows had an awful smell, there was no toilet paper but there was a huge and absolutely unnecessary TV. The breakfast next morning was set for six people on the same table, and featured a bit of ham, a bit of cheese and bread with jam. The person there was so slow and uninterested even to say if the kettle has boiled yet. Next morning there was a) no ham left and b) no juice left from yesterday and we had to wait for bread for next 25 minutes with he constantly saying “five minutes”. Regarding the payment they declined to take it on the first day, he did it on the second day, he had no change to give back, promised me a bill on email which has never arrived. He did not even ask for passports. Parking can be done on the street for maximum 2 hours (and not 3 EUR per day as stated) or nearby for free, which he did not know about. They need to get their priorities straight and start doing something instead of just looking at iPad the whole day (whoever was at the reception had it in his hands all the time).
