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.

    We stayed one night in a private room, which is on the other side of the road to the hostel. It was fantastic. Huge room, very comfortable bed, very quiet. The staff were so helpful, the location was perfect, breakfast was great. Can’t recommend highly enough.

    Gallery Hostel is probably the most well decorated hostel I've ever been to. Another highlight was definitely the free breakfast, which had so many different food options to choose from. I'd highly recommend staying here if you are in Porto!

    Absolutely the most beautiful and welcoming hostel I've ever stayed in. When I arrived the staff was extraordinarily helpful, the building was straight out of a home and garden magazine and the rooms had a balcony. Location is great because you're away from the noise and crowds but right in the heart of the art district. Loved this hostel so much and would definitely stay again.

    Great hostel! A really great artsy vibe & has some cute gardens and chill out spaces as well. Staff were great and helpful and the room was great too -comfy bunk beds which have a charger, USB and lamp, huge lockers and then I like how we had our own private bathroom in our dorm room that were clean. The breakfast was great - cereal, eggs, toast, fruit salad & pastries (the mini pastel de natas were so good!). Location wasn’t a far walk at all to main sights - would definitely stay here again

    Fabulous

    I thought it was a great hostel and it was really clean. However at 1:30 in the morning one of the staff brought someone into our room and was talking so loud out in the hallway, turned on the lights in the room and proceeded to talk really loudly as he showed her the bed and woke up me and most people in the room. I thought this was absolutely not okay at 130 in the morning and have never had it happen in any of the many hostels I’ve stayed in.

    The hostel was fine but the other people staying there were not. Several came in at 2a, banging around and speaking loudly. Then at 4a, one of them gets up and continues to make a tremendous amount of noise. One of the other patrons asked her to be quiet but it didn’t seem to make a difference.

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.
