We have visited about 15 countries in Europe and have travelled a lot all over the world and staying in hostels and b&bs, I can say that this place is at the TOP of our list. We have loved our stay from the moment we got here. We were welcomed with good glasses of port wine and cookies, and then got to see the beautiful and clean room we had. The room and bed was clean (impeccably clean)and comfortable, the views from the terraces are amazing, the service from the owners is impeccable.
The hostel is in a great location. It was easy to get there by public transit, and we walked everywhere our entire stay. It is close to the port wine cellars, so it is easy to walk from place to place (and drink:) without having to worry about transport (driving especially). We also walked easily across the bridge to porto city.
The owners were very welcoming, giving us impeccable service, (in many languages, French and English), recommending great places for us to see. They even prepared breakfast earlier than usual just for us because we had an early tour.
The breakfast is very good, with breads and jams and cold cuts, coffee and tea, all in their beautiful kitchen with good and relaxing music.
This place was so peaceful, we got to relax and forget about our hectic lives at home the moment we got here.
Thank you to marta and Joao for our wonderfull stay!
