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.

    As an end to my Iberian getaway, this was a gorgeous hostel with modern yet cozy decor with a kind staff. The young woman who checked me in was super informative. They have a WhatsApp account and promptly answer questions. You're next door to a self-service laundry mat with within walking distance for most main attractions (15-20 minutes). I can't wait to come back.

    I loved everything about my stay at the Gallery Hostel! It was very clean, very calm, very relaxing, and very central to everything. I felt very comfortable with this considering the covid situation. The staff was super nice, very helpful and patient with me when I called multiple times as I was navigating my way towards the hostel after landing. Highly recommend!

    Gorgeous space, more like a hotel than hostel. Excellent accommodation in an excellent location. Not the most social of hostels, but a really great place to rest at the end of the day.

    Hi there. I was absolutely stunned how amazing this hostel appeared to be. It's the best hostel in my life so far (I've stayed in many). Location is amazing. Stuff - guys, you are awesome, so friendly, so helpful and so eager to communicate and give a piece of advice where to go, where to eat and how it would be better to get from one place to another. Room - magnificent. Super clean sheets, spacious bathroom. I had a feeling I'm in hotel rather in hostel. This place is fabulous!!!! Loved it!!

    Das Hostel war super ausgestattet und hat eher ein Hotel erinnert. Genügend Privatsphäre, auch im Mehrbettzimmer (nur Frauen) und große verschließbare Schränke im Badezimmer, das direkt am Zimmer grenzt. Leckeres Frühstück, super freundliches und hilfreiches Personal. Ich komme sicherlich wieder. :)

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.
