This is the most fancy and amazing place you can be. Although when you enter this place seems small but it isnt. The rooms are huge inspite of being a hostel, the locker are big and the amenities are brilliant. The bar is amazing and the kitchen is sweet. You have a dvd room where you can watch a match...

My favorite hostel I've been to. I definitely recommend having some drinks at the bar and joining at least one of their nightly dinners to get to know the great staff and your fellow travelers. Its in a good location, easily walkable to any part of Porto you would want to explore. We stayed in one of their private rooms... More

A fantastic hostel in the art district. Still on a walking distance from the city center and old part of the city. Clean rooms with big lockable cupboards. Bathrooms and showers are in the room which is great. Very helpful staff. This is truly a great hostel!

Tucked away in a quiet part of the Art district this hostel is unique. There are 2 parts, the main hostel and the Home, this has individually designed rooms just along from the hostel. Rooms are lovely with ensuite and there is a delightful garden area to relax in too. Easy walking distance of all sights and restaurants. Very friendly... More

I did not spend a night at Gallery Hostel, so I can't say much about their rooms. I can, however, praise their amazing staff. Yesterday, I was staying at an apartment nearby the hostel and was in a bind because I needed to print tickets for an early-morning shuttle to the airport. My apartment didn't have a printer and all... More

This conveniently located (in the art district) hostel is staffed by friendly, multi-lingual staff and is all-round just a really gnarly place to stay in Porto. We actually stayed in the Gallery Home (private quarters), only because the hostel was booked out, however we spent a lot of time hanging out in the hostel where there are daily communal dinners...

Overbooked the room, unapologetic about this and no offering of any form of compensation! The main hostel manager tried to make me feel bad about the situation! He stated that if I really didn’t want the extra person there, the person would have to sleep on the streets! The hostel manger and the front desk woman (she wears braces) handle... More

Really nice, spacious rooms. A bonus was that each bed has a small bedside table next to it (including the top bunk). I wear glasses, so this was very appreciated as I always struggle to figure out where to put them at night. The staff were friendly, welcoming, took me on a tour of everything and thoroughly explained where everything... More

Stunning hostel, peaceful, relaxing, loads of space. Clean, great breakfast. Staff are obviously very happy in their jobs as they are all lovely and helpful always. The evening meal is really good- like a family meal. No loud parties or drunken idiots here! The area is great- loads of lovely cafes, bars, small shops and street art. Supermarket across the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gallery Hostel is set in a privileged area of Oporto, known for its art galleries and modern shops, at a walking distance from the main points of interest in the city centre such as museums, monuments, gardens, restaurants and bars. Located in Rua Miguel Bombarda, the Hostel is established in an historical building with more than 100 years old, which just went through a renewal in order to respond to our guest’s needs and expectations. With high standards of comfort and carefully decorated, you will find a familiar and cosy atmosphere, complemented by a multilingual and professional team. Composed by several types of rooms, the Gallery Hostel is divided in two sections. You can choose between staying in the main building in a 6 or 4 people bedroom, or in one of our Garden Suites, always offering a privileged privacy. In the main building, each room is named after the most renowned artists of Oporto such as Sophia Mello Breyner, Almeida Garrett, Julio Resende, Silva Porto, Siza Vieira and Souto Moura. Also creating an original feeling of the city and enhancing local culture, the Garden Suites are named after the main Oporto city parks (Cordoaria, Botânico, Serralves and Palácio de Cristal). Our services and common areas have also been developed in order to satisfy any need the guest might have. You can choose listening to music and drink Portuguese wine in our Lounge Bar, watch a DVD in our Movie Theatre or play a game, surf on internet or read a book in our Library, have a chat or chill out in our interior gardens, enjoy a meal in our open kitchen and breakfast area, between others. ... more   less
