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.

What's best is the friendly owner Alexandre! We came from a long journey from South America and he was very concerned about our arrival, he called us and sent text messages. He even welcomed us with a glass of porto wine! You really feel at home, the house has only two rooms so is very quiet, location is good and you have a fully equiped kitchen. The only bad thing were the beds, they were small, noisy and the mattress was very thin so we actually couldn't sleep and rest from our journey.
It was great! Thank you very much! :)

Perfect for couples! The room was lovely - spacious and sunny, the kitchen was well-equipped, Alexandre was super helpful, and the place was kept immaculately clean. There is a nice little cafe a few doors up the road which we recommend, and this hostel is well placed between the touristy riverside area and the main town. For a hostel priced accommodation this was great value, as we practically had the place to ourselves most of the time!
