    100% lives up to its slogan. It really is your HOME. The hospitality is second to none, the hostel is unbelievably clean, and breakfast is top notch. It was nice to Just sit back and have a coffee with “John”. He, and his staff are VERY knowledgeable about Porto, and give great advice with respect to things to do/avoid. I’d you have the privilege, definitely stay here!

    It was my first time in a Hostel. By the time I booked, there was only a place, in a mix shared room, available. I was a bit worried, but I have to confess it was a very good experience. I would arrive at midnight and leave at 6am, so I didn't live the Hostel atmosphere to the fullest. But I really liked the staff, João was very welcoming and helpful. And I also had a safe and comfortable stay. The hostel is in a good location and it is very nice and clean. I'm happy with my first experience!

    Hostel Gaia is a family-run hostel and a very charming place to stay. The building is clean, modern, cosy, well-maintained and you have all of the facilities you need for a comfortable stay. Joao, the owner, speaks many languages and is very friendly, approachable and sociable without ever being intrusive. The location is also great - quiet but convenient as it is located up the hill from Cais de Gaia - so the Douro River and the centre of Porto are very easy to reach.

    Close enough to the Douro to walk across to the centre of Porto, although i was visiting a friend in the locality of the hostel. I took a bed in the shared 6 bed dormitory. Only just sufficient space, but comfortable and clean which is all one needs. The breakfast was particularly good with plenty of bread rolls and a variety of cured meats and cheese, as well as the usual fruit, yoghurt and cereal. The superb bonus was the delicious home-baked cake.
