Hostelworld says

Garden House Hostel is located on a charming pedestrian street in Old Town, just down from the stunning Capela das Almas, a chapel covered in hand-painted blue tiles. Hostelworld guests say they appreciate that this 'open and airy' hostel has a large outdoor terrace, friendly staff who provide a personal service and a lounge area featuring TV, movies and a guitar. We like their popular pub crawl, a great opportunity to discover the city and meet fellow travellers.

Property Description

Garden House Hostel is one of the friendliest and most welcoming hostels in Porto.

Located in the heart of the old city, in the famous Rua de Santa Catarina, a pedestrian street where you can feel the essence of Porto, visit a wide range of restaurants, shops and cafes, such as the well-known Cafe Majestic, an Art Nouveau icon where artists and intellectuals meet for a cimbalino (expresso). Also within walking distance are all the museums, Port wine cellars, the Douro River and the cool Porto nightlife.

After a day of walking and sightseeing, nothing feels better than returning to the beautiful 19th century house that is Garden House Hostel. The building has been fully restored and improved, with all the modern commodities, and has a wonderful garden where you can relax, have a glass of wine, read a book, feel at home in a cozy, warm and friendly atmosphere!

From the Hostel you can catch the riverside tram to the sea and the beaches at Foz. With its restaurants, bars and promenade, you can enjoy the sun in one of the iconic places of Porto.

In the summer don't forget to pack your sunscreen and beach towel!

    It is perfectly clean and it has everything you need- beautiful garden to chill, really good equiped kitchen to prepare yourself a dinner and tasty breakfast included in the prize of stay! Location is in the city centre of Porto so you need around 10 minutes to see all the main attractions. Staff is always trying to help you and they will make your stay in the hostel even better. Only 'problem' is that you could end up spending more time in the hostel than exploring beautiful Porto!

    I LOVED this hostel. It’s in a great location, close to metro and supermarket and walking distance from the main sights you’d want to see. It’s a lovely environment and the room was amazing and spacious. Big locker that fitted my big pack and day pack. Card key to get into the room. Good breakfast and relaxing lounge area. Super friendly staff. Would happily stay again and would recommend to friends.

    Really happy with this hostel. It was easy to get to from the airport, just one train and a short walk. It was tidy and clean which is always a plus and the beds were comfortable. The garden in the back was perfect for relaxing in and the breakfast was simple but really nice. Special thanks to André for making us feel welcome and telling us about Porto!

    We had such a lovely stay! The staff were incredible and always willing to give suggestions and help whenever we had doubts. The breakfast was nice with food being restocked constantly during breakfast time. The kitchen was able to be used throughout the day so meals could be prepared. Beds were comfortable. Lots of activities available for guests in the city. Would highly recommend this place

    I stayed at the Garden House Hostel for three nights. The first two nights were excellent. The last night was not great: there was a party in the house that went on late (midnight or so), it was very loud, and new room mates came into the sleeping room very late and continued their conversations loudly. Not a great night for sleep.

    My friends and I enjoyed our stay here very much and wish we could've stayed longer! The staff here were so friendly and welcoming. My only complaint about the stay was that your could hear everything from the halls and such, but I think that's going to be like anywhere so I just suggest bringing earplugs! The bathrooms were kept very clean, as well as the rooms. It was the perfect place for us, and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

    Stayed here for 3 nights on my trip to Porto. From what I remembered, the rooms and the staff were overall very nice. Not as many events as other hostels I'm guessing, but I didn't participate in any of them either way. Prime location to stay in Porto though, far enough from the city centre that it's generally quite quiet, but still close enough that everything is very close by, especially when the market reopens.
