“Clean, central, friendly but bit noisy and hot.”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Stayed with a friend in a twin room. Good value, the staff were friendly and the room was cleaned everyday and we were given fresh towels, water was hot on demand in the bathroom. No tea / coffee facilities, but there are a few supermarkets and cafes very nearby. Did not have the breakfast so can not comment on that. Very central location but this means that it is noisy overnight. There is no air conditioning so could get stuffy in the middle of summer despite roller shutter blinds. Pillows were lumpy.
The pizza restuarant nearby which you get 10% off at is pretty decent.

Room was too hot, no air conditioning. Bed was just about ok. Overall the room was kind of depressing - probably reminded some Portuguese guests what it meant to live under the Salazar regime... That said, on a budget it probably doesn't get any better.... Functional and no frills...

For what you pay this has to be about the best there is around - Anywhere!
Great location, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, and all and a fantastic price!

If you're going to stay in Porto and you are on a 'Budget' - this one is for you - you'll find it hard to beat - really!

Very good location is the only thing good to point out.
Old building, old furniture, old floor and old walls, dirty.
Everything is quite old although clean, but for their price range one can find better accommodation.
The furniture should be renewed, also they have blankets instead of duvets.
The heating system is also old and inefficient for the winter nights. Too noisy place, looks almost as if you were sleeping with open windows.
The bath towels had good quality but were in the room for too long so smelled not like just clean.
The water heater was electric, it was old and installed in the bathroom. Worst it was leaking, so needed to be changed. Really not acceptable conditions for a place that has 4 stars in the designation.
Just the staff was very polite and the breakfast was also ok, served in a place called travelers cafe, in my opinion had good quality, fresh juices and the food was good also.

The hotel is centrally situated and right next door to the Colluseum Theatre just around the corner from the shopping area and the Majestic cafe (a must) and close to Bolhoa metro. Plenty of restaurants and bars close by and within easy walks of most landmarks and some beautiful architecture. The rooms were a little tired but linen was immaculate and very clean. Breakfast was buffet style continental and fresh coffee, not impressed that there was not boiling water as one cannot make tea with warm water in a pot but that's just me!! Staff very friendly and we would definately use this hotel again.

Room Tip: We were given a suite road side which was quite noisy so ear plugs needed if you are a light sleeper...

If you are looking for a cheap accommodation, in downtown Oporto, Escondidinho can fit your expectations and your needs.
Hotel rooms are partially hosted in the nearby Coliseum theater, that is why they are old, noisy and with peeling walls. The rooms are standard, with no amenities, but perfectly acceptable, considering towels are changed daily, the breakfast's included and friendly hotel staff.

My stay at the hostel was fine, the only bad thing is that you can't invite anybody to visit your room
