Porto Lounge Hostel & Guesthouse is an excellent option at Porto, if you travel alone. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, the toilets are very clean and the staff is polite and helpful staff. Totally recommended
Kitchen very dirty. Space very old Very noisy all the time. Nice receptionist The owner speaks very loud ( low level women) I would never advice this place to anyone. Very expensive. The worst Experience in many years
Not a party place Very clean and higher level then a hostel Hard to park Two hours parking maximum area Nice staff Lovely room and bathroom shower Good WiFi Desperate high stairs to third floor though So bad you only go once a day Recommended
I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights on a solo trip to Porto, Portugal. This hostel is located very central in Porto and easily accessible by foot from Trindade or Aliados Metro stations. The hostel is fresh, modern, and somewhat new. The staff and front desk are welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. The hostel has private rooms with shared bathrooms. I opted to stay at a dorm like room with bunk beds. I was able to request my preferred bed and I was lucky to be assigned my preferred bed. The room I stayed in was located on the 3rd floor Room 1. It had 2 showers, 2 toilets, and 2 sinks. It even had a hair dryer and 2 hand towels to use. The lighting was adequate and ventilation was good since it had exhaust fans that switched on when someone was using the bathroom. The rooms were of good size and had a nice sized bed and lockers that fit a carry on size luggage. The room had wide doors that open to the balcony which offered fresh air. The room also has a wall mounted split type air conditioner. Each bed had an electrical outlet, a small ledge to place some items, and a reading light. Each set of bunk beds has a foldable chair which I found useful when organizing items on my backpack. Daily housekeeping was provided and the room was "organized" each day. I preferred my things not to be touched or moved but I did not have any choice. I learned to just lock everything up in my locker to avoid any items being moved. The breakfast was adequate and the kitchen area was of good size to accommodate travelers. It had a cooking area, fridge, utensils, cookware, and microwave. The hostel is not similar to other "party" hostels. This is a quiet hostel which I preferred. Pros: - Friendly staff - Location - Price - Overall cleanliness - Spacious - Generally quiet compared to other hostels - No party scene - Good for introverts Cons: - It took 3-5 minutes for the hot water to run - Housekeeping would move items to organize the room If you found this review helpful, click on the helpful icon to help other travelers.

Many pluses: Reasonably priced Close to metro Clean Best of all, the lady at the front desk who so kindly pointed out on the map all points of interest BUT the big minus was NOISE. My room was the one right across from the reception desk. It faced the street at street level and had no sound insulation whatsoever. This meant that you could hear everything as if the windows were wide open even though they were shut. So anyone passing by having a conversation or some drunk idiots serenading the block at 4AM might as well have been at the foot of your bed because that’s how it sounded. Ear plugs made no difference.
