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, very friendly staff and ensuite dorms. We particularly like their delicious nightly Portuguese dinners, which cost around â'¬10.

Our unique property, which also serves as an art gallery, is considered by many as one of the best in Porto and the world.
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 centre and Porto nightlife. In addition, one of Porto's most beautiful gardens, the Palacio de Cristal 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 and at the GH Cafe & Restaurant.

    This is by far the best place to stay if in Porto and in need of a hostel. The staff are great, there is a bar and café it’s just a great place to be. The accommodation itself is also very good as well as the provision of breakfast which includes the most options I’ve seen of a hostel. It’s just great.

    I really enjoyed staying in Gallery Hostel. The staff made every effort to be welcoming and helpful - they helped me when I lost my key card, and could recommend nearby restaurants. It was the other guests however that made my stay really enjoyable. Everyone was nice and friendly, creating a chill vibe. It was not a party hostel which I wanted. The room was clean and more generally everything had an artsy aesthetic and was very spacious. Breakfast was included and had lots of options.

    I had a pleasant stay at Gallery Hostel- the rooms and bathrooms were extremely clean, and the roof terrace was a nice sunny spot to spend some downtime. This hostel had fewer build-ins to meet other travellers, but I still met some lovely people in my room and over breakfast. This is definitely not the place to be if you want a super social hostel experience, but perfect if you're looking for a quieter place to relax like I was.

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.
