The location is great and the stuff is really helpful

Great hostel. The staff is very friendly. Location is excellent and close to bus stop for airport. Only con for me was that the hostel is smack in the middle of downtown and I was on ground floor, which means it was not quiet in the dorm, especially because Portuguese people love to party until 5am. Falling asleep if you are trying to catch an early bus/train could be challenging.

Awesome hostel - central, friendly and helpful staff, a free breakfast, stylish design, the rooms have lockers, individual lamps and small baskets for your own stuff in the bed. Clean, great kitchen, a nice window view. Great value for a cheap price. All the hostels in the world should learn how to run a hostel by looking how its done in Portugal. Book it :)

Generally a very good and decent hostel. The best thing is the breakfast. The hostel prepared cheese and ham sandwich for each of us.

Porto DownTown Hostel is a great place for anybody. It´s friendly atmosphere allows you to relax and their large lounge area promotes conversation and meeting new people. If traveling on a budget, the full kitchen allows you to cook your own meals. The downstairs market also is really nice. Overall it was a great place to stay in Porto!

One of the best hostels I have ever seen!!!

The location was pretty good (Aliados is 2 min. away; Clérigos is 2 min. away; Lello Library is in the next doors). The hostel is very clean and safe. The kitchen is very well equiped. The breakfast is ok for an hostel. We wanted to pay through debit card but that is not possible. We were told that we could pay later but a few hours later another employee asked us for the money. This is only a small drawback, though. I would definitely recommend Porto Downtown Hostel.

Fantastic stay at this hostel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful (we had our bikes delivered here for the Camino). Good breakfast in the morning and an excellent kitchen / living room area to chill out. Big thumbs up!

Everything was great, except breakfast. We came at 10 (breakfast is till 10:30), and there were empty plates. We only got one small bread with one cheese. In other hostels I had much better breakfasts, but everything else was great.

The hostel is nice and has a great atmosphere, the staff is adorable - they're really nice and helpful, and the breakfast was great. But my bed wasn't the best, it was broken so it was discomfortable and the shower was really really bad, it was cold and you couldn't shower properly because the water tap has a "timer" so you only get 10 seconds of water and then you have to press it again.

Good location near the city center, free breakfast. By the way, no heater so the room is cold and it is noisy at night and one of the staff speaks English very little so it is difficult to communicate to ask for the information etc... Anyway, it is good for value of money :)

The hostel was awesome. Only one thing that I really didn't like - I stayed in Red part and it was way too noisy (from outside of the hostel) for having a good sleep.

The location in the city centre and next to a night club and other locations to enjoy at night is very good. The hostel is clean. One can feel homey in the common area with guitarre, chess and continantal breakfast. What could be improved is the window isolation. Than both the cold (stayed there in January) and the noise from the night club wouldn't bother at all. The room was equipt with a heat-radiator, we had to let it run all night, in order to get the room warm. Bathrooms without heater.
