Hands down THE best hostel I've ever stayed in. It was super modern, beautiful, the wifi worked everywhere, they had multiple common rooms and an awesome patio. The staff were super friendly and gave great recommendations. Additionally the rooms where extremely nice with personal curtains, outlets, lights per each bed. The storage and security in the rooms was also great. The location was perfect as well, being right by the train station and downtown area. Great atmosphere! 100% recommended

Amazing hostel! The nightly supper they have with the staff is a must do. The food is ridiculously good. Lior and Malala are one of the nicest and friendliest of the staff although they are all very friendly!

An awesome hostel - had some problems with the WiFi but everything else perfect. I can see why theyve won so many awards. The restaurant and its manager were top notch, absolutely awesome.

We stayed in a two bed private that was in a building separate to the main part and the reception of the hostel. This separate building had a small kitchen and common room which was great, the wifi was good, the room was very clean and comfortable. Only slight issue with security as there was a balcony door/window that the cleaners left open during the day and we felt the area was a bit unsafe and anyone could have got in. Thankfully they didn't. Staff were ok.

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. We are glad you enjoyed our anex building and its facilities. We do open the windows while cleaning to air out rooms and ask the cleaners to close them when they are finished. We apologize that they forgot to do this. Although very unlikely and nearly impossible that someone enters the 2 floor window, we have talked to them to ensure the windows are always kept closed after cleaning for the comfort of our guests. Thanks again and safe travels

Why dont you arrange some jams for bread?

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your GREAT review and your suggestion. We do in fact offer a variety of jams as well as Nutella to put on our daily fresh baked bread and pancakes. It seems we must have run out when you came down for breakfast and we apologize for that, we will ensure it is constantly filled in the future. Safe travels and hope to see you again!

thanks for your feedback as we take it seriously in order to improve our service for future guests. We provide spacious personal lockers bellow all beds in hopes to keep peoples things tucked away and will try to ensure they are used. Aside from airing out each room daily by opening the balconies in each room which we do, we are looking into air fresheners in each room and maybe free dirty sock cleaning service ;) Thanks again and hope to see you back soon in Porto!

Very nice and helpful staff. The social scene is a bit fragmented but I still met a lot of cool people as a solo traveller. Facilities are very clean but a bit Tati-esque, with the "design" seeming to focus more on aesthetics than functionality. The showerheads didn't seem capable of being adjusted up and down, for instance. The free breakfast could have also been more accommodating to my dietary needs, but otherwise it meets the high standards that Porto's hostels have become known for.

The actual hostel is very, very nice. The beds have curtains, a fan, a light and an outlet which was such a positive addition. The majority of guests were much older though, and it was weird that there was such a lack of young backpackers. Despite that, everyone I encountered at the hostel (staff and guests) was friendly.

Great place with a great vibe very close to the center of Porto. There is a lot going on so you can easily meet people. The staff is great. Only thing I didn't like was that my gourp was separated but it was a busy weekend so we didn't mind.

Good hostel but the atmosphere wasn't great. A lot of older people staying so not a lot of interaction. Decent location but in a way out of the way a little bit

The hostel itself was great and accommodating to my needs. However the lighting in the bathroom was a bit lacking. It was hard to see. Outside of that, I really liked the place and would recommend it to others.
