I have stayed in this hostel for 3 days in october 2015, and it was absolutely amazing! I had one of the rooms with two bed, and it was super clean. the design and decoration in this place is quite artistic, and somehow you feel at home. there is also a mini bar , a kitchen, a play/living room, and...

We stayed a few nights down by the river and we wanted to stay in the area where this beautiful hostel is located. We booked a private room and it was beautiful. You walk in the front doors and you can tell that every little detail from front to back has been thought about. The bar area is a relaxing... More

This was my first time staying at a hostel and I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was really pleasantly surprised. The Gallery Hostel is very clean and nicely decorated. I walked all around the city, and the hostel is close to a lot of the sights and good places to eat.

We were traveling (on a budget) with our two young adult children. It was the perfect place for us. Our only regret is that we did not stay more than one evening as we were heading back to Lisbon the following day. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast was delicious. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean & spacious.We especially... More

We have stayed in this hostel several times, and each time was special. The place is run by a group of young men who really care about their hostel. Make sure you join a food or fado night, or join the pubcrawl which is a lot of fun.

My friend and I stayed for three nights at the hostel. After originally planning only two nights, we loved Porto and the hostel so much we decided to tack on an extra night. We stayed in a private room with an ensuite, and it felt much more like a hotel than a hostel. The rooms were spacious and very clean... More

Can't recommend this hostel highly enough - wonderful welcome from the minute you arrive, delicious breakfast and dinner, and genuinely hospitable staff. I stayed in a gorgeous private room to rival a boutique hotel - and can't wait to stay again!

If not the best hostel I have ever stayed at, very close to it. Very nice high end feel. Definitely much higher end feel than your standard backpacker youth hostel. Great value for the price. Hardwood floors, surrounded by great art. Cute little bar. They have a kitchen with large table you can sign up for dinner every evening that... More

This is probably the best hostel I had been. Very clean, spacious bedrooms, decent breakfast, and awesome free walking tour. Make sure you tip if you can afford thought. The location is also excellent, walking distance for the main attractions and night life. They also offer a dinner that costs 10 euros (three course meal including wine) that totally worth... More

This hostel is in a great location in Porto's art quarter, managing to be fairly central but also quiet and peaceful. The staff could not be friendlier - on arrival we were greeted and given a wealth of recommendations for eateries, excursions and cultural attractions, all listed on the map the receptionist annotated for us. Our room, a private double... More
