Our stay could not have been better! First of all, the staff are very friendly and made us feel welcome right away. The hostel is clean and looks good, the common areas provided a great place to chill out and meet people. Rooms were also clean and modern, beds are a bit on the small side though. Everything offered by... More

I really loved Porto and part of me having such a good time was the hostel. Great staff, good bedrooms and bathrooms. Their services are great as well. Personally loved the 24 hours bar in the hostel.

On arrival the staff was very friendly and keen to get to know you. The free shot at 22:00 create a nice atmosphere and made it easy to find people to hang out with. The rooms were spacious, good lockers available and all the beds are equipped with their own nightlight and plug. The toilets and showers were well maintained.... More

Pilot Hostel was perfect and exceeded all of my expectations; we all loved it so much we're already talking about going back! We booked a 4-bed room which we... More

I stay there for almost a week back in 2014 during the World Cup period while i was traveling in Portugal after a month of summer course in Spain.

Bathrooms were not really clean, rooms were dark, there were not enough hangers. Hostel open to people over age 30, so we shared rooms we some middle age people.... More

Clean, laid back environment. Met some cool people which always adds to the experience and loved the 10pm free shot policy! Only minor thing was the trek to the top floor was a bit rough with a bad knee, no elevators, but this wouldn't affect my decision to go back.
