    Mostly old people but that might be just because of the time of our stay. All very clean, decent breakfast but nothing too crazy. However, for the price paid this is a really great thing to be included! the terrace was the best part, lovely both in the sun and at night for a bit of stargazing! friendly staff, especially the cleaners!

    Nice hostel at a quite central location. Staff was nice. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Rooms were large and beds were nice. Toilet and shower were clean, but there was just one bathroom (with 1 toilet and 1 shower) for a whole floor, which might be a problem if there are a lot of people (now there were just a few guests).

    Overall I was satisfied. Unfortunately, there is only one toilet and one shower on each floor, which can be problematic in the morning.

    Our overall experience was quite positive. The room was big enough for the 3 of us and beds were quite comfortable. The hostel is located at the heart of Porto, the location could not possibly be better. There was an electric in our room, which was very important as the room was facing west and receives no sunshine. The bedroom had a wardrobe and a small table, a light for each bed. Overall, the room was excellent. Showers, just like the bedroom, were clean and easy to use.

    Hostel itself was nice. Staff kinda weird. Arrived at 1pm (checkin is 2) and door was locked with no receptionist there. After 5-10min waiting outside confused, a guy showed up and just said “it’s not check in yet” and acted like we were an inconvenience or something. Had to ask him if we could come in and drop heavy bags. Also another worker chased me and my wife down when we entered and asked that we both showed her our keys, as if I was trying to sneak in a girl to our dorms or something. Dorm rooms very

    Comfortable and bright room. In general it is clean. Breakfast without variety and everything counted, in addition to a very reduced schedule. A staff member of the hostel was homophobic and racist with me and my friends, all staying there, he had no patience and didn't respect diversity. He threw out my friend and wouldn't let him stay in the hostel's common area. There is no one at night in the reception,so there is no assistance if necessary. Sad man.

    Hostel is great if you are a digital nomad looking for a quiet place to work with a good wifi connection. The location is also amazing and the room was very comfortable. What I did not like was the fact that they make you wear a mask in the hostel, but then fail to add soap in the bathroom. I told the cleaning lady that the soap was filled with water and they did not replace it. Too many rules, you have a time where you are allowed to cook, you cannot hang your towel in the room.

    We reached the hostel early in the morning to keep our baggages but despite informing the hostel of our arrival time earlier, no one opened the door for us on our arrival. we had to wait almost an hour and half before being allowed entry in the hostel. Although the hostel was clean, there was only one washroom on every floor tube shared among 6 rooms. The rules too were pretty strict with respect to noise after 10pm.

    Horrible vibe, avoid if possible. Staff doesn't make you feel welcome and they are not friendly at all. They didn't even let me stay in a hostel after check out to chill while waiting for my bus. I never experienced such a terrible service. Weird strict rules are written everywhere... feels like nobody is welcome
