We checked out this hostel before we booked and liked the look of it and the good reviews. Four of us stayed here so we got a private room with a bathroom. Unfortunately we were disappointed and I wouldn't stay here again.

Pros:
-Friendly staff
-Clean communal areas with cool theme
-Good kitchen
-Good location
-Good price

Cons:
-No window in our room, so it was very dark and stuffy (it was in the bathroom in the back instead).
-The bathroom was very mouldy, with the ceiling mostly black. There were lots of chipped tiles covered with mold. The shower curtain wasn't attached to anything, it was just resting, so would easily fall. I don't expect a lot from hostel bathrooms but this was something else.
-The room was not especially clean, there were wrappers left under the bed so the floor hadn't been cleaned properly and quite a bit of dust, although I wouldn't have been so bothered by this had the bathroom been OK.

Summary: There are better places to stay in Porto for the same price, if you do stay here stay in dorms or a room on the front (but beware the noise).

Room Tip: Get a room in dorms, from a quick sneek peak they seemed much better, for some reason our room was a...

Dear ElmoAbroad,

Greetings from the Wine Hostel.

I would like to thank you for your recent stay at our property and for your constructive feedback given for the period of your stay, in order for us to improve our services and facilities in the future.

Unfortunately, the room you stayed was the only one without window in the room itself; however, we have planned a complete renovation of the rooms within the next couple of months and for sure a much improved product available for you to experience on your next visit to Porto.

Regarding the cleanliness of the room, we already talked to our housekeeper, in order to prevent these things from repeating.

Once again, we apologize for our shortcomings and I hope that I can welcome you again at our hostel.

Best regards,

The Wine Hostel Team

The hostel is located in the centre of Oporto and that neighbourhood is the best to have a drink and dance.
The staff was nice and helpful.
The theme of the decoration was interesting and it couldn't be more Oporto related.
It's ideal for travellers that seek a good time and are not bothered with noise, so, an advise when booking: remember, it's a youth hostel near bars, it's bound to be noisy!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side are quieter, because some bars are located down stairs - they close at 2am an...

The hostel is great! The girls working there are so kind and friendly, it's amazing. The room was neat and comfortable. The position if great if you plan to go out because there are bars infront of the hostel. Me and my friends had a great time in Porto and this Hostel. We we entered the building of the hostel there was a "wow" response to the place so i really recomand you the place.
This hostel offers you a lot included in the price.It's the best!

One of the best location in Porto (close to all the bars, meeting point of many pub crawls... and 5 min walking from the old city center). Very spacious living room and fully equiped kitchen. The dorms are good and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Beer and Port Wine are available at a very cheap price !
