    Douro Surf Hostel is the perfect place to stay once you are visiting Porto. It is situated in the city of Gaia, on the other side of the bridge that crosses the Douro river, that separates Porto from Gaia. The hostel is situated in a very calm neighbourhood and in walking distance to Porto. The staff is amazing!!! Eduarda and Katy were very helpful and welcoming with all the informations needed to have a great stay in Porto and Gaia. We definetely recommend it!!

    Perfect visit from start to finish. Staff on reception very informative and helpful. Rooms cleaned and beds made daily, brilliant WiFi. Quiet at night which suited us perfectly. Location is on the opposite side of the river but this wasn’t really an issue, still plenty of bars, restaurants and port tours.

    Room was huge and had an amazing view, but there wasn’t a nice social area to hang out besides the kitchen/dining area. Hostel is across the river from everything fun, you’re basically in an isolated residential area. Staff are nice but don’t speak English, and the doors in every room were impossible to operate normally. Wouldn’t stay again unless traveling with someone, it’s a solo vibe kill.
