Property Description

Bluesock Hostels Porto is located in Ribeira, the historical centre of Porto, on the banks of the Duero River and just steps from the city’s main attractions. From the hostel you can walk to Praça da Ribeira, Palácio da Bolsa, Alfandega Congress Centre and many other places you won’t want to miss. We are also surrounded by loads of restaurants, terraces, shops, cafés and wineries to lose yourself in.

A traditional blue-tiled building that blends into the heart of Ribeira. 3,000 square meters. A basement with spectacular arches, the ground floor and six additional floors. These are the dimensions we hope to fill with Bluesock experiences.
At our hostel in Porto it is still possible to experience the spirit of the city’s typical housing buildings. We’ve kept the stone, the wooden beams on the ceilings and the original architecture and structure of the building

Bluesock Hostels Porto is located on Rua Sao Joao, 40, just a 10-minute walk from São Bento station. And, although this is a city to discover on foot, we have public transport and the main roads on our doorstep.
The price of the breakfast is 4 € per person, breakfast in private rooms is included.

    The hostel itself is a fantastic building and the bunk beds are good. But as for the staff and facilities, very erythema poor. You would think that being a hostel you would be able to make yourself a hot drink and make a meal or at least take food back to the hostel to eat in comfort. No, you have a list of do's and don'ts. You can't eat food in the rooms, fair enough. But you can't bring food or drink into the hostel from outside. And not much to offer in the hostel. Very poor.

    The toilets were dirty, but for me most surreal was there's no kitchen and you're also not even allowed to bring food from outside but rather have to buy your food at the hostel's bar.. What the?.. I never met something so capitalistic and unfriendly towards backpackers. But this is what happens when most important is making money so it's not their fault but we live in a crazy money-driven world. The staff were great. Helpful and friendly, and the bed was cozy.

    Location was great. But I have to say, the shower of Bluesock Hostel really sucks. I still can’t understand why does anyone make shower that uncomfortable for the guests. Also, staffs were quite unfriendly. I think I met at least 4 staffs there during my stay and none of them were being nice or at least smile, but very dry and a bit cold to the guest.

    One of the worst hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Customer service was horrendous. Was stuck in the lift for 30 minutes - was not updated as to when I could expect to get out, just told to calm down. Arrived back to the room to find at least 6 kids (possibly more as I lost track of them all running around) all under the age of 10 in a shared room. Water all on the floor from the family doing washing. Again, staff very much unconcerned and was told too bad. Bathrooms were not cleaned at all in 3 days
