Nice and charming place. The hosts are kind and they make you feel at home. The rooms are very clean with nice beds and shower. Our room had an incredible sight. Breakfast is very good. But if you want to know portuguese food and culture you should boom the dinner which is home made and delicious. In brief is the best hostel I had ever been even better than many hotels.

Thanks João and Marta for being great hosts, I loved the homely atmosphere of the hostel and the dinner on Friday was a real highlight, it was so great to try real homemade Portuguese food in a family atmosphere and meet some young Brazilian and Mexican people. It's a great environment you've created, keep it up.

Owner's (Joao) hospitality exceeded all expectations and hostel was very clean, modern and nice. I stayed with my partner at double room which was more convenient than the one in many 2-3 stars hotels. Location seemed to be on a quiet street so there wasn't noisy at night time. Still it wasn't a too long way to nearest metro station or to river bank either. I have nothing to complain.

Gaia Porto Hostel was one of my favorite hostels. The kindness of João and Marta, the hosts, was amazing. The accommodations are extremely good and everything is really clean and well cared. I totally recommend this hostel. Good rooms, beds, bathrooms, internet, laundry, excellent breakfast, it is very well located and many other good things, for a really good price.

Wonderful hostel, more like a boutique hotel than a hostel and beautifully appointed. Lovely warm showers after a day's travelling or a day walking in the city. Great food if you choose to stay for dinner (do). Easy to get to using the metro directly from the airport. João and Marta are wonderful hosts who are multilingual and also give great advice of what to do and where to go.

GREAT place with GREAT hosts. They truly make you feel like family and we had a very large comfortable bed and good blackout curtains for when we wanted to sleep in. Bathrooms were very clean with very nice showers. Getting there is a pretty big uphill walk and most attractions are on the side of the river but otherwise everything about this hostel is excellent.

It's a really nice and cosy hostel. Everything you need is available. Every morning there is a delicious breakfast with homebaked cake! João and Martha do everything they can to let you feel at home. No question is to much, they will always try to help. This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in!

Excellent hostel run by a really lovely local couple, feels more like a boutique hotel than a hostel, great location on the Gaia side of the river about a 10 minute walk from the riverside. Great breakfast. Just beware that the street name exists in both Porto & Gaia which is the Abbeyside to Dungarvan in Porto but is equally as nice as the other side of the river. Highly recommended.

Porto charmed us to the core during our visit, certainly in part due to the hospitality of Marta and Joao. Out of all my various hostel stays, GaiaPorto was the place where I have felt truly hosted. The owner-managers Marta and Joao are fantastic, always present to help, excited to give recommendations (which never once failed us) tailored to your specific interests and pace. The place is very clean, quiet, and the view from the garden is as-advertised. Just a very personal and homey atmosphere.

I love tha place! From garden is the best view to Porto. It's not the hostel just for party people (but for them too its near to center like 10 min walking) but its very good if you want to spend romantic moments with your secound half :) and they give for breakfast the best croissant in the city :p for sure was first but not our last time in this cool place !

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.
