Service and friendliness at Hostel was super! @Tina/Sarah- thank you Don't forget your ear plugs, if you are a light sleeper, in case other guests get home during the night - due to the bell and doors :)

This hostel is AMAZING!!! Definitely THE best hostel I have ever stayed in! The staff is super accommodating and nice, the rooms are clean, and the hostel is in a great location. Some hostels will have you pay extra for towels and lockers, but in this one they are free because they are genuinely trying to make your hostel experience enjoyable. If you are headed to Porto, book this hostel!

Nice location right next to the nightlife but if you are trying to get a full night's sleep it may not be the best place.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, feels like home. The hostel is ideally located, close to the night spots, easy to access by train or metro. Don't need to bring a lock, you've got it in the room for your stuff, that's practicle. However, the only negative comment would be the old soft mastress... Overall a very good stay, would definitely recommend it!

Otherwise an OK hostel (if you like the midtown kind with a lot of people and a lot of traffic noise) but we had booked a 3-person room for two nights, but when we arrived we were told we'd been placed in a 10-person dorm. No apologies or concessions. The hostel itself was clean and hot water was available, but having bad for customer service kind of brought us down. (Just apologise and it'd have been ok, but the attitude kinda threw us off and we booked a new one for the next night.)

Ok hostel, though sleeping was very hard in the red dorm due to the massive amounts of music from bars and traffic. In addition, we booked 2 nights, one of them in a 3-person room. When arriving at the hostel we just got informed that we had been bumped to a 10-person dorm for BOTH nights (instead of one in a 6p and one in a private), no apologies or any concessions made. Staff was businesslike but aloof. We booked a private room for a diff. hostel for the second night.

Free coffee and tea all the time and not only for breakfast is very good! In the kitchen there was everything (and even more) for "real" cooking.
