Great great great staff! Only 1 guy there the whole time we were there and he was awesome. So friendly, genuine and helpful. Makes such a difference having staff that genuinely care. Accommodated our room change request last minute. Good kitchen, free computers. Clean. Will stay again


Me and my friend have stayed there for three nights and it was really good! The staff was really friendly, we were able to use computers at anytime, kitchen had everything we needed and all in all it was really clean! 'Keep up the good work!

Rooms are quite dark. But okay to stay.


Bedbugs in dormitory!!!! I was bitten and wasn't very nice experience to have in this beautiful city Porto..


Oporto is the best hostel EVER! The staff were so nice and the location of the hostel is perfect, you can go everywhere in the city by walk from the hostel. The rooms and commun areas are really clean. If you go at this hostel you must go at the pub crawl and the walking tour, it's really fun!


Very nice hostel. Basic facilities but with charm. The parking lost was a mess. To small and the stuff was overstrained.


Bed bugs in the dormitory.

Hello, Thank you very much for your comment!! We hadn't noticed this problem before since they hide during the day and only come out at night. After your stay we've sealed the room, threw all the furniture away and made a general disinfection in all the hostel. We also hired a new company to monitor closer and more regularly this kind of situation so that it won't happen again. Again, thank you for your comment, that we hope helped us improve our guest's experience!


Beautiful, modern hostel, perfectly located. Our room was very spacious, had its own bathroom and a small balcony. The whole hostel was cleaned daily. The kitchen was well equipped, the living room had a huge TV and we could use various computers with free internet. Outside was a lovely living area with huge sofas and they even grew their own spices in the yard. The staff was very, very nice and always ready to help. We couldn't believe that for the cheap price we paid the hostel was so awesome!


Very nice place with everything that one can possibly need. I felt very well there and the atmosphere is just lovely. I do recommend it if you want to chill out in the beautiful city of Oporto!


Lovely hostel on a great location with amazing staff! Excellent value for money:)


Oporto city hostel makes us felt like home during our stay there. Rooms are spacious, clean and it has very good kitchen facility. We hope to come back one day!


Great hostel with fantastic staff - had the most amazing weekend. Easy walking distance from all the sights of Porto. Highly recommended.


Oporto hostel is such a lively place with so many young people gathering. You will never get bored here, cuz there will be pub crawl, free walking tours and also a nice chit-chatting in the common area of the hostel. Strongly recommend.


Great hostel with great staff. We stayed there for three nights and had a good time.


We had a good experience in this hostel. There was exactly superb atmosphere with the perfect garden. Staff was so friendly. I suggest you to stay in this hostel if you have a plan to go to Porto

Thank you for your comment Yasin, hope to see you in Oporto City Hostel again, or perhaps in Turkey ;)


staff is very friendly and helpfull, they give you a whole tour first, so you dont have to look or ask for any facilities. there are computers free to use, very good kitchen, common room and a backyard with bbq and everything. dorms are cleaned every day, whole place is very clean indeed. location is ok, its only a ten minutes walk from main square, though there are also hostels closer to city centre. stay at this hostel, atmosphere is one of the best Ive ever had in any hostel so far.


Wonderful hostel. The location is fantastic, the people are great, and the hostel has tons of info on things to do and see. They also have free walking tours that are very informative and fun! They talk about Harry Potter on the morning and afternoon tours. Overall, best hostel I've ever stayed at!


Everything's perfect!!!!!!!!!nice staff, economical price, good location!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! strongly recommend it!!!!!


Great hostel with very nice dorm rooms. 8 rooms with 1 bathroom is actually the maximum I would accept from any hostel, and their shared toilet makes up for any inconvenience... The rooms are cleaned daily, so you nearly always have a clean room. Along with several other hostels, they organise an awesome pub crawl for 12 euros that is well worth it! Also, don't miss out on the free walking tours that leave every morning and afternoon from the main square in front of the city counsil.

The only issue I had was that the WiFi signal was weak to none in the room, so I could not use it there otherwise great.
