Hostelworld says

As the name suggests, Gallery Hostel Porto is a beautiful hostel filled with original art and located in an area surrounded by art galleries. It's about 10 minutes' walk from the centre. Hostelworld guests have said they'd definitely recommend this hostel, 'especially if you like art and music'. This hostel features a summer terrace and winter garden, free breakfast, very friendly staff and ensuite dorms. We particularly like their delicious nightly Portuguese dinners, which cost around â'¬10.

Property Description

Welcome to your home in Porto! The Gallery Hostel & Home, an award-winning boutique hostel nestled in the heart of Porto’s Art district, is the perfect location to begin your Portuguese adventure. Our unique property, which also serves as an art gallery, is considered by many as one of the best in Porto and the world. Each room is named after a Portuguese artist and themed accordingly.

Set in a restored 19th century building, Gallery Hostel provides guests with an authentic Portuguese experience and hospitality. The historic building, while maintaining its original blue tiles, a symbol of Portuguese architecture, was rehabilitated with a contemporary touch and comfort. Located in one of the trendiest quarters of Porto, Gallery Hostel is only a short walk from both the historic center and Porto’s nightlife. In addition, one of Porto’s most beautiful gardens, the “Palacio de Crystal” is located within 5 minutes walk, where you can spot peacocks! We are also conveniently situated between Lapa and Trindade metro stations, both a short walking distance.

Our home is the perfect place for travellers to relax after a day of adventure, to forge new friendships, and to enjoy a nice glass of Port wine! Our monthly calendar of events showcases various events happening around the city as well as events hosted at the hostel. Guests can also join us for an authentic local dining experience at one of our weekly Portuguese dinners or BBQs.

We offer a selection of room categories ranging from 4-bed dorms to Deluxe Suites, all with in-room shower facilities. Every room is carefully and uniquely designed to ensure the maximum comfort and style. Our dorms feature new custom-designed bunk-beds with built-in plugs, UBS port, and individual lights. Each guest staying in a dormitory will be provided with a private locker equipped with a secure digital technology.

At the Gallery Hostel, the team is here to create an unique and memorable Portuguese experience for all our guests. Our friendly and multilingual staff may assist you at all times (24hr reception) with travel planning, dining reservations as well as any other requests our guests may have.

    Absolutely loved my stay at the gallery hostel Porto! Amazing breakfast, fantastic staff and the beds were so comfortable! Stayed in a 6 dorm and had great room mates! Originally only booked 2 nights and ended up extending it to 4 because I had such a great time. Thanks team!

    The BEST hostel I’ve ever stayed in! I was incredibly blown away with this space. It’s so whimsical and in a perfect location. I loved being in the arts district of Porto. It had surrounding shops that were run by local artists and not at all tourist traps. The staff was helpful and genuine! I always had good conversations with them and they helped me out with any questions I had. Rooms and bathroom were amazing and super clean. Breakfast was 15/10. Stay here and you’ll see for yourself!!!

    Honestly one of the nicest and cleanest hostels I have ever stayed at! Designed beautifully with boutique lounge areas. While it’s a more upscale hostel they still have a bar and organized activities for guests to get to know each other. The beds are also extremely comfortable. Wonderful location with very helpful and kind staff members. I had a quick stay but would absolutely go back!

    I immediately felt so welcome at this hostel! The employees at the front desk were very helpful and gave us a map with their recommendations. There was always delicious free cake out in the kitchen, and the free breakfast was amazing. I liked that the location was away from the busy city center but easily accessible by walking. The beds were comfortable and the 6 person dorm felt spacious. I especially liked that we had our own bathroom and shower in the dorm itself. Would visit again :)

    Beautiful Hostel in a great location off the city center in the middle of the Art District. Breakfast included in the price was fantastic. They make fresh cakes in front of you. Plenty of proteins available too. Atmosphere was artsy and chill. The 4 person room with ensuite bathroom was clean and spacious with great balcony view of the rooftops. Really happy with the bike rental (built into the price). Stay here again for sure.

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at in Europe - the staff and facilities are amazing, and the free breakfast is very generous. The hostel is located outside of the city centre, but it’s a quick 15 minute walk down to the river.

    Gallery hostel was absolutely amazing. It’s in a great location, and is easily accessible from anywhere in the city. The hostel is extremely clean and modern and the decor is beautiful! The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the facilities are great. My room was spacious and had great lockup storage for everyone. It’s a quieter hostel, but definitely the best hostel I’ve stayed in. Will definitely stay again when I’m next in Porto!

Gallery Hostel Porto says

I think what makes is really special is our bar, where guests can enjoy well-chosen beverages; we prepare daily homemade dinners with different themes such as typical Portuguese dishes, variety of tapas and port wine tasting.
We also have our own art gallery with bimonthly-changing exhibitions of Portuguese artists. We're a part of the local community in our wonderful artistic neighbourhood, which brings you closer to the authentic Portuguese culture. Plus our home cinema is muuuch more comfortable than a movie theatre ;)
We welcome guests of all ages who value comfort, friendly service and are interest in different cultural aspects such as good food, wine, art etc.
