BEST HOSTEL EVER!!! Excellent location, Amazing decoration, Extremely friendly staff, SUPER cosy bed and bedroom PLUS every room has an ensuite bathroom!!! So you don't have to fight it with 20 over people. AND the hostel is REALLY clean!! It actually feels more like a hotel than a hostel because of its professionalism! The staff were SUPER friendly and SUPER professional too! DEFINITELY recommend anyone to stay there!! You will NOT regret it! Plus point for the theme of the hostel!
This is a really nice boutique hostel. Everything seems fresh and new. The location is very good as well, being surrounded by galleries and lots of great restaurants. It is a fairly quiet hostel, good for relaxing. Better than average free breakfast in the morning, and as an added bonus, the staff do your (breakfast) dishes, and make your bed everyday.
Excellent and attentive staff. Gave me a thorough introduction to the city the first day I've arrived. Very clean and offered my soup when I was sick. One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Room for improvement: the walking tour. My guide was not very knowledgeable about the city at all.
Great clean hostel with everything you could need and the most halpful staff ever!!! Location is good with most attractions in walking distance. Would 100% stay again
Galleria Hostel is known among other hostel receptionists as the best hostel in Porto. And it sure is. Very lovely hostel, good personnel and great value for money. Big spacious rooms and separate shower and toilet per room, also had a balcony. Offers many entertainment possibilities like movie room, bar area etc... Location wise also great. If I come back to Porto, this is where I would wanna stay and will recommend to other friends.
Nice and lovelly staff. Excellent breakfast, good location, and a clean lovelly hostel.

I've been traveling for almost one year and I can tell for sure that Gallery Hostel was the best hostel I've ever stayed... Definitely! That's my first time reviewing a hostel and I think it's important to share with other travelers how awesome this place is! Do not hesitate, because I am pretty sure you'll have a great time there, with a very helpful and friendly staff, a comfortable and practical room, a delicious breakfast (the best!) and portonics! Special thanks to Fred, Paulo and André!

Awesome hostel with great staff!! Definitely stay here!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Gallery Hostel. I liked the decoration of the rooms and the whole hostel. The staff was always there to help and the free walking tour was also great. Thank you very much!
I have stayed at many hostels during my time abroad and this may be the absolute best I have been to. Very comfortable. Nice staff. Clean. Nice community areas. Wonderful dinners available. If you go to Porto, stay here. You won't regret anything about it.
Wow! This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in yet, and I've been in and out of hostels this entire year. Great check in with a staff member who gave us a map and explained more than everything we needed to know, incredible facilities (kitchen, bar area, library, recreation room, smoke room), and beautiful rooms with private bathrooms and balconies. The hostel breakfast was one of the best hostel breakfasts, also. Definitely book this place to stay!
Happy 4th anniversary! We really enjoyed our stay! Great place, friendly staff, comfortable room. Fred almost explained the whole Porto to us. The hostel itself smells amazing and is like an art gallery itself. Love the common room too much! A pity all the movies are in Portuguese. The room is the biggest dorm I've ever stayed at. They also give you a throw and clean towels. Love the free breakfast too! Wifi doesn't work very well from our room tho. Nonetheless, enjoyed the stay!
Probably the nicest hostel I've ever stayed at. Excellent rooms and huge bar/common areas. Rooftop terrace, smoking lounge, and tv/music room with all football matches on and guitars for you to play. Every night there is an affordable 3 course traditional portuguese meal with wine included. The staff is truly excellent and friendly. Most of them join for dinner every night and will befriend you easily.
The hostel is in a nice neighborhood in Porto with gallerys and street art. It takes about 10 - 15min to the metro stations around. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast was nice. The room was hugh and had nice decor and plastering. It was nice to have 2 toilets and two showers in the room, for only six people.
Loved the place onlt we're guessing the cook is missing? Stayed for dinner twice (once on sunday aka BBQ night and once "Portugese") but both times was home-delivered fries and ribs.
loved this hostel, would definately stay again
Would recommend for travelers that enjoy art, or those looking for a different type of hostel. The staff were awesome and super helpful. I had trouble getting back to Spain and they assisted and made the relevant calls, thank you! Wifi is weak in the bedrooms, but beds are comfortable and the rooms/bathrooms are clean! Dinners were good and Porto is a must... Thank you for an awesome experience.
Great stay! great staff, great food that they offer at night. It was just amazing. I absolutely loved it.
