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.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Gallery Hostel. The room was really comfortable and the building was beautiful. The neighbourhood is quiet, quirky and walking distance to everywhere/ easy bus/metro access. Bit of a quieter, older crowd, but this was exactly what I wanted at the time. Big big thanks to Leandro for all his recommendations and for making my stay so memorable. :D

    In the off season, it is definitely worth spending a little more money to stay here rather than other hostels. It’s not easy to meet people if you are not outgoing, but I found it easy to talk to the people in my room! The dinners were also great! I loved this hostel!

The location was central to Porto so that was a plus and the breakfast was very good (better than I usually have) and prepared beautifully.

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at, new facilities and spacious, modern rooms. Comfortable beds with usb and power outlets right next to them. Nice to have bathroom and shower inside the dorm room. Wonderful and friendly staff. All in all perfect!

    I stayed in a private room. It's a very nice hostel, with fancy and modern rooms. The room is big, clean and the bed comfortable. Location isn't super great, but ok. The staff is friendly and helpful. Super fast Wi-FI! Fresh air is a minor problem though, the room only has one window that only opens a crack and the bathroom has neither windows nor vents.

    Lovely hostel, I’ve never stayed in a hostel where they make your bed everyday! Staff were very nice, breakfast selection was good and I enjoyed the Portuguese dinner experience. Great en-suite bathroom set up with two sinks and all separated out so there’s never a queue for the bathroom! Nice location in the arty district, within walking distance to different sites.

    My stay in a six-person female dorm at Gallery Hostel Porto was great! The staff was nice and offered suggestions about what to see, do, and eat in the area. The location was near shopping and food, as well as close to the historic district. The hostel was very clean and cozy. It was great that the dorm room had an ensuite bathroom with two toilets, two showers, and two sinks; I never had to wait for someone else to finish. The breakfast was the best I've had at a hostel! Would recommend!

    Pros: beautiful hostel, clean, cosy beds, great bathrooms and nice chill out areas. Cons: quite far out of the city if walking (eg night walks seemed far), not much atmosphere/very quiet, a bit pricey for a hostel. Nothing wrong with this hostel at all, I would just stay somewhere closer to everything next time :)

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.
