One of the best hostels i've stayed. The owner, João, is a kind man and pays attention to every detail of your experience. Welcome drink, the furniture and facilities quite new and organized, a relaxing rooftop garden, breakfast with a handmade local cake are the main elements of a great journey.

We stayed there 3 nights and had the best time. The owner was extremely helpful giving us great advice for what to do and in Porto, also what restaurants not to eat at. We took the advice and found ourselves enjoying great wineries, restaurants and markets. The upkeep of the premises was to the highest standard and when we needed a relaxing night, we sat in the terraced gardens and enjoyed some recommend 'green' wine and olives while looking over the city lights and river.

I could not ve asked for a better hostel for my stay in Porto. The location is actually in Gaia, which isnt a problem at all. It's a 10min walk into Porto city. In my opinion it's even better to stay on that side of the river cause its more quiet and gives a magnificant view over Porto! The owners are just amazing!!

We’ve traveled fairly extensively in parts of Europe and Central America and can say, without a doubt, that this is the best hostel that we’ve stayed in. It is relaxing, cozy, and spotlessly clean. The best part, however, are its owners Marta and João. They treat you like family and recommend great local (i.e., non-touristy) restaurants and places to visit--we've never eaten better. The hostel is located close to everything and has a great 3-tiered garden with amazing overviews of the city.

We LOVED our stay at the hostel. Joan and Marta are a delight and so helpful. You truly feel like part of their family. We loved the home cooked meal and eating with the other backpackers. It was such a nice way to meet people. Location is great and close to good food and easy to walk to wine cellars and the city. Hostel is very clean, comfortable, well designed and the roof top Terrace is awesome! Joan and Marta are always happy to help and lend advice about Porto too. We will be back!

This place feelings like home far away from home. Marta & João are one of the kindest hosts I have met. The hostel has a great garden, with views over the nicest parts of Porto. A BBQ in the evening there, lovely organized by the two, made a perfect last evening. Everything is very clean, the showers feel like a summer rainfall... This will make the perfect place to make your stay in Porto a unique experience! Thank you for everything, Marta & João! See you soon!

I enjoyed it a lot, I gave the location only a "good", because it could be even better. But it is nicely located and everything else was truly excellent. They do a wonderful job there, when I return to Porto it will be in this hostel!

This Hostel was so lovely, very convenient and easy to find, was blown away at their hospitality. My favourite part of this hostel was the 10 euro traditional portugese dinner. Consisting of an entree, main course and a chocolate cake dessert it was an amazing experience which I will never forget ! Thankyou for making Porto so magical. There is also a free wine tasting at the original Port Wine winery which you can go to, if you go to this hostel!

From the moment we were collected from Porto Airport the welcome was warm and friendly. The stay at the hostel really added to our stay in the city and we'll always remember the hospitality shown to us. It was a relaxing home from home better than any hotel.

it is the best hostel i have ever seen in Europe ! Joao is very nice, welcoming and helpful, the location is great (just across the bridge from the old historic center, not far from restaurants etc but in a quiet street). I felt safe and wish I could stay longer to enjoy the terraces over the Douro river...

amazing hostel! really nice, helpful and friendly host. gives out great recommendations. the hostel itself is super pretty, spotless clean and the veranda on the roof gives you the best view of porto! seriously, how good can a hostel be?! the location is actually in gaia, which we learned when we got there is not porto itself. however, less than 10min by foot and you're right at the waterfront! and you're close to all the wine cellars! thanks again for a great stay, we will definetely be back!
