    I can't describe how satisfied we are with our stay in Douro Surf Hostel. Without a doubt one of the best that I've ever booked. The staff is awesome and went above and beyond to give us the coolest insights of Porto/Gaia region. The place is clean, tidy and organized. Special thanks to Eduarda, our hostess when we got there and her fellow colleague, Kate. Keep it up, guys.

    Absolutely enjoyed my stay in this thoughtfully decorated hostel with a homely and comfortable environment. The staff was super sweet and helpful, she allowed an early check-in at 11am and lent me her umbrella as it was drizzling when I headed outside. Bathroom was clean and spacious; new bedsheets and towel were also provided. Location was perfect in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood. Loved my stay here and the city is beautiful.

    A great chilled place for couples, very high standard, Clean, tranquil neighborhood, super helpful staff. We stayed with my boyfriend and could have chosen better. Not a place for you if you want to party and meet other travelers. They organize surf classes as well.

    Kate was very helpful, kind & friendly to a Solo female traveller. She took the time to help me book a train to Lisboa & even picked my departure station which was much closer to the Hostel. Cleaper side of the river as well for food & gifts

    Really cute little hostel located just in the back streets of Vila Nova De Gaia, on a quite street just a couple blocks from the waterfront. Super friendly staff and nice, clean rooms and a nice kitchen area. Great showers, fun vibe, and wonderful location. Highly recommended for something quiet, homely, friendly and inviting!
