We got a private three bedroom room, with a private toilet. The room was clean but it was extremely humid, it smelled like a cave. The people at the reception were very nice and helpful, and they gave us useful tips. We did not stay much at the hostel, and it did not look like an awesome place to socialize.


We had 200 Euros stolen from our luggage. The Hostel didn't have a safe or locker, so we had no alternative but leaving our money in our bags. We were on a private room, so the only people who had a key to it, except ourselves, were staff. When we told the owners about the incident, they were sympathetic but didn't do anything – they didn't so much offer us a discount for the rest of our stay. They basically shrugged off and told us to contact the police. We did, but obviously nothing came of it

Estimado Não tiveram direito a qualquer reembolso ou desconto porque não havia prova do roubo. Esta decisão foi tomada de acordo e com o conhecimento das autoridades . Como os Senhor bem sabe não estava sozinho no quarto, sempre afirmaram que não tinham dinheiro liquido ( ao chegar pagaram a conta com cartão visa pois não tinham dinheiro), de repente já faltava o mesmo valor pago pela reserva !!! NUNCA pediram para guardar na recepção fosse o que fosse. Cumprimentos.


Not easy to find (because it was in an other guesthouse), and no real kitchen with oven, but very friendly staff and close to the center.


Well, first they should change the photos in the add because the hostel we stay wasn't the one shown in the pictures. There was a lot of stairs, and the room was small, it had a strong smell like old, and had no windows. If you have allergies don't go there. It was very clean and a very helpful staff.


When we arrived at the hostel the guy at the reception, that didn't speak English, told us that there was something wrong with the water in our room. So they've put us in the hotel next door without extra costs. We were really happy that we could stay at this nice hotel. We could still use the kitchen from the hostel. But when we wanted to cook dinner there was no stove... Seriously, this is not a kitchen!!!


The manager or owner is reaally nice, she gave us a map of Porto and practically made our entire itinerary, it was really helpful. The value for this kind of money was unbelievable.

Wouldn't recommend it. Bed was (VERY) uncomfortable, guests were noisy, there was only a fridge in the kitchen (no stove)... Plus the address given was wrong, we really had a bad time trying to find the hostel :(

Staff was super friendly and helpful! Location was good and easy access with Metro and 15min walk to city centre. The fact that there is no kitchen and only a microwave was a major factor. Cheap, good location, brialliant staff , but no kitchen.
