A great place to stay in Central Porto. Clean and quiet.


We have throughly enjoyed our stay in Casa das Taipas. The location is perfect: central, close to the main attractions and to bus stops, restaurants andsupermarkets. It is also close to the port. We met Susana, our host and she was great!! Told us where to go and where to eat and etc, she was very polite and nice. The apartment is huge and it has most necessary things in it. It was very clean and tidy. I want to return to Porto and I will most definitely be back there Obrigada Susana!!!!


Micro hostel (only 2 rooms) in the city center of Porto and therefor pretty quiet. There is a kitchen with good utility. It's more or less in the citycenter so everything is within walking distance, which was perfect! We stayed in the room with 2 single beds and a bunkbed. The bathroom is quite small. When the showercabin wouldn't close, Alexandre fixed it immediately for us. Minor thing is the constant penetrating odour of the sewer. But they seem to have plans to renovate the bathroom.


Good hostel, with a nice staff. Great living room/kitchen. The only less positive thing was that the bathroom was a bit small for long people.
