뭐 딱히 방은 깨끗하고 침대정돈이 잘 되어있는데 욕실은 청소를 잘 하고 있는지 모르겠음

If you're looking for a party hostel to meet fab people, then this is the perfect place. If you're looking for somewhere just to lay your head, then this is may be a bit wild. Also there were extra costs for things that other hostels do for free - breakfast and keeping luggage after checkout. Plus there was no lockable storage in the room so take a padlock. But friendly staff and great party atmosphere, met some great people.

It's a pretty cool place. The atmosphere is bar/club like, so there's always music and the lights are always low. The staff was amazing! Our entire trip was pretty much based off of the staff's recommendations. Not a bad place.

This place is GREAT!! The staff is the best ever, especially Daniela (whom I fell in love with) and Rita. The bar is 24 hours so we got to play fuss ball every time we got home from partying which is great. The terrace is also amazing, and the other guests very friendly and approachable. We met so many great people here! Location is great, just minutes away from the main square and close to our favorite restaurant Moinro de Vento (or, you know, something like that). Don't hesitate, book here!

Generally not bad. But could be better. I didn't have hot water in the shower. Free Tea&coffee is very weak and usually I had to ask for it, because one jug of tea is not enough for 30 people...

It would be good to have some lockers in the dorms - even just a padlock to add to each storage space. Otherwise all good, thanks - n ice, helpful staff and great value for money! Would go back.

Many ants, dim lighting eveywhere, loud music until late into the morning/night, and someone stole my clothes. Thank goodness I put the rest of my stuff in a locker with a lock the hostel didn't provide. The staff wad really helpful and sweet, however. The outdoor terrace was nice as well.

Porto was really hot and it was on the top of the hill (almost) , if you want to see the river and go tour cor wine , you have to walk down over 10 mons and should go up over 10min to back to hostel. There was no air conditioning system , just ine electronic fan in 8 bed dorm. I couldn't use wi-fi in my room cuz signal was too weak, and suddenly it didn't work even in the lobby. They said there is problem so they called to fix it but it continued for 2 days . Made me extremely inconvenient
