Location and everything is great, great location to the shopping street but not city center which you could get cheap food. great staff. Loved the garden but the kitchen is a little buit small, for the toilet. please remember not to put any tissue paper into the toilet bowl. All every guests are friendly and willing to chat as well. totally recommend it for solo travellers.

The first night I stayed there I was unable to sleep because of all the noise outside/in the street which was a bit annoying. Wifi did not always work well in the bedroom. Other than that I had a good stay. The hostel is beautifully decorated, has a very nice living room and garden and they serve a decent breakfast.

Wow this place is incredible! Possibly the nicest hostel I have ever stayed at, and I have stayed in many. The hostel itself is beautiful, well laid out and has a good kitchen. The wifi is good in downstairs areas but didn't work in the rooms when I was there. The rooms were super spacious and the beds were a dream! The staff were lovely. The only downpoint was that I was travelling alone and found it quite hard to meet people, but that generally is a time specific thing not reflective of the pl

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and could sleep that well because people were coming in the room after partying. The rest was really nice. Good breakfast as well.

The suite was amazing! I would definitely stay here again. The only awkward bit was that there was no door to the bathroom so it was open to the other people in your room.

It was a really nice hostel in a beautiful building. The rooms were nice! The staff was very very friendly and the breakfast really good and there was more than enough for everyone! The only downside was that it was a little bit hard to meet people as the hostel was big, but I would definitely return! :)

Really easy to get to from train station and easy walking distance to the night club area. Supermarket 2 streets away. Great kitchen and relaxed communal spaces. Good wifi access. Beautiful large rooms, each bed having a lamp and a good locker. Big garden. Good breakfast with variety of food.

Had a great one night stay! Stayed in a 4 person room and it was clean and had individual lockers for each guest. A great place to stay in Porto! A few things that could be improved is the room door was hard to lock from the outside because it was an old door. And also the bathroom garbage in each stall was not emptied often enough. It was required to put all used toilet paper in these garbages, but often they were too full. Thanks for the great stay!
