It is more like a hotel than a hostel on appearence, it has a house atmosphere, in which i felt really comfortable. The staff welcomes you in a really good way, the bedrooms are comfortable, everything is clean and the breakfast is really good!


So absolutely amazing. I wanted to extend my trip but the hostel had already been fully booked, so I ended up staying at another 'top' hostel on this website. Honestly the other (sorry not naming) hostel was nowhere near Gallery Hostel! This Hostel really is that great. Super friendly staff and also the dinners are wonderful! The rooms are incredibly spacious too.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else is Porto - best "hostel" I have ever stayed in. Staff are unbelievably helpful. More of a boutique hotel than hostel. You actually want to hang out and cook in this hostel. Beds are very comfortable and rooms are luxurious dorms. Well designed spaces and rooms. A MUST for accommodations in Porto. I can't wait to come back!


Hostel definitely worth the money. Large rooms, cozy atmosphere and absolutely AMAZING staff...


Amazing cleanliness, one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in. Free walking tour was wonderful! Each room has air conditioning and they don't get stuffy or smelly like other hostels. Wonderful staff, incredibly friendly and nice. Great location, great value. Definitely would recommend.


Fantastic hostel with many options for city tours!


One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Really good!


I really enjoyed my stay at the Gallery Hostel. The staff was very very kind and friendly, also helpful und always available für advise, questions or generall information. I personally liked the common rooms a lot and having breakfast and dinner together at the same big table, which helped to get to know each other. Food was excellent and very delicious. Only that I am lactose intolerant and therefore couldn't eat all offered meals. But overall I had a very good time at the hostel.

Front desk staff are very informative and friendly, give a full briefing and suggestion to guest. Location is close to one of the long haul bus station, situated at a quiet art district but extremely close to various sight of interest, also many good restaurants & cafe nearby and supermarket is just 3 mins from hostel. The hostel is really stylish and one of the cleanest that I've ever stayed, very spacious room, nice open kitchen, the house dinner is excellent, natural light in common area .


Must stay at this hostel if staying in Porto. You will not be disappointed!


My favorite hostel ever! Security was great with lockers in every room. The staff is amazing! They really take the time to chat with you and help you with whatever you need. And they are there 24/7. I wanted a drink at 3 in the morning and Alex made me a drink. The walking tours are very informative and helpful. The atmosphere is great! The nightly dinners really help you meet and connect with fellow travelers. But it is a bit difficult to meet people because it is such a small hostel.


I loved this hostel, the staff are incredibly friendly, its clean, great location, beautifully decorated.......I cold go on. Oh, and the evening meals if you opt to have them are inexpensive and absolutely delicious!
