Good location with many restaurants and local bakery around. Staff are so nice and thoughtful. Love Porto!


The hostel is very good located when you are a party animal. When you are not, you have to bring ear plugs because its situated in the middle of night spot. On the other hand its one of the cheapiest hostel in Porto, so when you are not in the high season and on the weekend its ok. Stuff was very friendly. They made us breakfast at 4:30 AM because we had an early flight, this opportunity has never been offered to me before even in the expensivve hotels.


The hostel is located in the center of Porto. It is in walking distance to most of the attractions of Porto. The staffs are very friendly and supportive. However, there are some parts that should be improved. 1) Plug for Upper Bed. All plugs are located in lower bed. If you stay at upper bed, you need longer wire. 2) Toilet doors could not be locked! (all locks are broken). Should be repaired! 3) Not all necessary ingredient can be found in Kitchen. No cooking oil, no pepper...


Great communal space with lots of light. Staff really accommodating and easy-going. Super easy location, close to everything. Booked two nights, stayed five! Easy place to meet people as well.

The security recieved a good instead of excellent, because the locks on the locker's doors can be so easily manipulated to open. Otherwise everything was perfect. The cleanliness got a good as well, because my first use of the showers started with some serious cleaning of hairballs and stealing toilet paper from another facility. But it still was good, I wouldn't excpect it to be sparkling in a busy hostel. Overall I loved the place, great value for money, great atmosphere, great staff.Thankyou!

Awesome hostel! Calm, with the perfect atmosphere to enjoy some space with your friends, or even your family. For example, I saw a 6-people family having dinner the night I arrived. The other night, there were a group of younger people hanging out. So it really is a place for everyone. And at last, the morning I left (4 am), they made a exclusive breakfast for my friend and I! I really recommend them.


Amazing hostel in a great location with a super friendly staff — what else can I say! Really great place to stay in Lisbon, it's a short walking distance to all the major spots. The staff was amazing and the breakfast is a step up from the usual hostel breakfast. Showers are nice and hot, and there's a cool living room to relax in. Stay here, you can't beat the prices in Lisbon.


Really well located and amazing staff. In the middle of the great city of Porto the hostel is really close to many important places and the staff was really nice, polite, cool and gave us great hints to better enjoy the city! Extremely recomend it!


The location of this hostel cannot be beat, and the prices are very reasonable. Beds are fine, showers are button operated but hot at least, and breakfast is the same old hostel breakfast you find everywhere. The staff was okay, there were a couple of times on the afternoon shift that the front desk staff would be missing — which is not good because you need them to buzz you up at all times!


Perfect location, plesent and halpfull stuff. Just go and enjoy!


The staff is very helpful and easygoing.Location is great and the general atmosphere in the hostel is quite laid back and enjoyable.For that money I think it's a decent place.


Great hostel, friendly staff, nice kitchen, good breakfast. The only real downside was that there was never much toilet paper and you had to hunt for it, and the shower rail fell off and I had to figure that out. Overall though good hostel, fantastic location, good breakfast clean rooms nice staff. 8/10 would re visit :)


The downstairs kitchen area is very nice with good breakfast. The upstairs with the beds and bathrooms is pretty rumdown, not the most comfortable beds. Also, not enough outlets per person. Great location. Some of the staff was extremely helpful, others more interested in flirting with guests than doing their job. It's a fine hostel for the price.


Great place to stay, you get more then what you pay for, outstanding staff, not that much of an atmosphere, but it was just the time of the year. Would recommend.


Womderful helping staff! Thanks for everything :)


I loved this hostel for its location, and staff! Very central within walking distance to many local haunts and the central square. Very helpful staff and pouts too. Special thanks to Yolanda for voluntarily marking spots of interest when I indicated I was going to talk a walk around. Highly recommended!


Very nice hostel, staff is very friendly, definitely a big reccomendation.


The directions Form trinade Station could be explained a little better. We had a room facing the square in front and we did not have one quiete night it was very noisy until early in the morning. I guess for those who like to party a lot this is perfect. Other than that the hostel is good.


Excellent location and friendly staff.


Located really close to the center just few steps away and nice staff :)
