We had the greatest time at So Cool Hostel: the hostel is clean, well organized, nice common room, kitchen and patio to get some sun for breakfast. We stayed in the private double room : very quiet, clean bathroom to share with the other private room. Our host was really nice and friendly: always available for good pieces of advices on what to do in Porto and where to hang out. Parfait !

I enjoyed my stay, particularly the helpful, hard working staff. Breakfast was simple but satisfying, new bathroom facilities were clean and sparkly (as good as shared bathrooms can ever be).

I had a terrible time sleeping in the shared dorm (mainly because of some ridiculous infighting between drunken roommates) but not sure if that's down to the large room size or simply the guests. Beds were comfy and clean.

Location is a bit far out of town but easy to get to from the main bus station. I enjoyed walking through the less-visited areas though. Feels a bit authentic.

I would recommend So Cool Hostel.

A great place with wonderful staff and a wonderful vibe; instantly felt welcome when we arrived.

It was a total stab-in-the-dark booking made a few days before leaving Lisbon for Porto but we couldn't have made a better choice.

Highly recommended.
