Pros - Good location, within walking distance of downtown sites and the riviera. The common area is nicely decorated. Cons - The hostel operators were quite discourteous, not sure if it was related to my ethnicity or being LGBT. There is certainly room for improvement there. The garden suite lacks windows, so without starting the A/C it was too warm during the day.”


Garden House Hostel is located in a very authentic Portuguese building. The style of the hostel itself gives you this homely atmosphere and makes you feel comfortable and at home. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's very clean and I think it's perfect for both backpackers as well as tourist who want to stay in Porto for a few days. The location is very central and there are very nice and decently priced cafes within less than a minute walk. I would definitely recommend it!
