“Surprising”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

I stayed there with two friends for three days in March/April, returning again after a weekend in Lisbon. We stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm with modern furniture and ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was included. Generally, I was surprised as I did not expect that much from a Hostel. Magnolia Hostel is a very clean place with a very good location close to the city center of Porto. The staff is extremely friendly. They also speak English and Spanish. Furthermore, we had breakfast included. It was not varied but nice and enough. Moreover, dishes were clean. The most important to mention is the patio...a very beautiful place where they sometimes have concerts and other events (according to the owner). Finally, it is worth pointing out that we did not pay a lot for our stay,,,only €12 per night. A very surprising place.

Porto is our last city after travelling 7 other cities in 6 countries for 10 days. Felt exhausted, we got friendly and warm welcome from Miguel who assist us with all accomodation. Eventhough we had not check-in yet, we were allowed to cook and eat rice plus boiled noodle which make us feel home in Porto! What made it also like home because it is not crowded with guests.

We have spent 4 nights at the hostel at the end of November and have to say my best holiday ever. The staff really go the extra mile, the garden area was so beautiful and loved the breakfast( fresh roll, croissant every morning)and the fresh coffee ......you can`t find even closer one in the UK. The room was so unique with the traditional tiles on the wall.
The old buildings haven`t got central heating in Porto but there was a electronic one. It was more than enough for us because they had fantastic thick duvet which kept us warm.
Overall if you are wondering where the next holiday is going to be, I definitely say PORTO and MAGNOLIA HOSTEL!!!!!

Room Tip: if you are a couple the blue room is quite and special.

We have spent only 1 night there. We have been welcomed in a very good way and they were very helpful for all information we needed. They also helped with storing the luggage and getting something to eat (we needed that urgently!)

However our room (double private) did not have a window and was a bit cold. Electric heating was available, but without a window the air got really dry in the night.

WiFi is available but the signal was very weak (even on the ground floor) - we didn't manage to connect.

Breakfast was ok, but not very special.

Sao Bento Station is near, but the way is very steep!

Bus Terminal just around the corner.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a window (there is at least one without!)

We stayed here in the last week of August and it was really good. Our double room was pretty and quiet and had an ensuite bathroom.

The breakfast was really good, especially in the nice and leafy garden. Staff's great and very helpful.

(Only downside: the wooden bed with the thin mattress was a little bit on the firm side for our boney bodies :-))

This is an incredible hostel. The staff are extremely nice, helpful, and there 24/7 to help. The rooms are very clean, the bathrooms are gorgeous, and there is a full kitchen and family room that make the place just like a vacation home. There is also a garden where I spent two nights hanging out with other travelers drinking and eating. Breakfast is also really great. Very nice place to stay.
