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 Home… welcome to the Gallery Hostel!

At the Gallery Hostel, we strive not only to meet expectations but also to exceed them. It is our goal to extend a UNIQUE & MEMORABLE travelling experience to each guest… to always be remembered as one of a kind. By warm welcoming each guest, giving attention to the smallest details and sharing our knowledge of Porto city, we will make sure you feel comfortable, safe and well guided in our city… just like having family visiting!

Located in the trendiest quarter of Porto, between art district and nightlife and a corner away from the Historical Centre. The eco-friendly Gallery Hostel characterizes the new concept of a luxury hostel, where best service, cleanliness and facilities are top priorities along with friendliness and familiar atmosphere.

Gallery Hostel's secret lies in a soulful project with tons of character and dedicated staff members, planning to make you feel right at home! The project involved the rehabilitation of an impressive 1906 building seeking to maintain most of the original aspects of a traditional Porto house blended with a modern d'cor infusing neutral and earthy tones with unique textures and furnishings.

Common areas are charming and stylish looking, a fair promise of design, relaxation and cosyness. At Porto Gallery Hostel you will find most welcoming and helpful staff members and a laid-back atmosphere. The friendly staff takes you to free walking Tours around some of Porto's iconic places and shows you the secrets of Porto's art district.

Gallery Hostel goes even beyond by fusing the hostel concept with an own Art Gallery and contributes with its bi-monthly changing art exhibitions, concerts and other cultural and artistic initiatives to the whole community.

Our newest project We Care is our effort to protect the environment through different green initiatives such as recycling, solar water heating and much more.

With a great know-how from Porto city, we will be happy to welcome you and recommend you the best places in Porto. It is our goal to make your stay a most memorable and enjoyable experience!

    Really nice hostel, about 15 minutes by feet from center. Staff very nice and helpful, hostel clean and quiet. Nice old but renovated building, rooms with balconys. There are really tasty breakfasts in the morming, and wine bar in the evening Only minor disadvantage are beds, whichch are a little squeaky and shaking, especially when you slep on top. But it’s nothing really serious. I really recommend that hostel.

    This hostels staff offer a relaxing stay for all of it's guests with great facilities which are clean and well maintained it is an oasis of calm in the otherwise busy city of Porto. This being said if you are a young and are looking for a party hostel this hostel does provide information about the local pub crawl. But after staying in this hostel it is clear that it is directed towards to opposite end of the market.

    The breakfast is great, with delicious scrabbled eggs every morning. When I was there it was very quiet, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your preference

    The common areas of the hostel are very nice! This would be a good hangout place over the sleeping/showering Facilities. If you're a light sleeper, you can hear the entire building creaking, doors slamming, etc. The shower also goes from scolding hot to cold to the temp you set it at within 2 minute intervals. This is more of a hotel with roommates environment with respect to the roommates. I really enjoyed their common areas though. Nicely decorated.

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.
