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!

    Garden House Hostel is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Everything was perfect, the location is a-mazing (basically on the main street), the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are cute, there's a locker for every person in the room and the doors unlock with a card so it's really safe. I loved the free breakfast, the garden is super nice and perfect for just chilling outside. Met so many amazing people from the whole world here. 10/10 would recommend! I'll definitely be back!

    Everything was quite all right. Except showers seemed to be not so well kept and there was no opportunity to keep things dry inside the cabin.

    Lovely central location, with nice facilities and spacious rooms. Unfortunately two people were bitten by bedbugs during my stay, however I personally did not have any issues.

    It’s an ok hostel. I stayed in the 6 bed all female dorm. The room itself is very big. I had the top bunk which is very hard to climb into, as it doesn’t have a proper ladder attached but flimsy steps. The bathrooms are not the cleanest and the water pressure is very poor. I didn’t shampoo my hair as I knew I would have to stand under that poor stream of water forever. The thing to keep in mind is that toilets and showers are mixed. Also the room shares a patio/ corridor with the other rooms.
