    I had the best time here! The staff is a great, the volunteers are also pleasant, and the location is stellar. I am a girl traveling solo and highly recommend this hostel due to the location, accommodations, walking tour, pub crawl, family dinner, drinking games, etc. etc. I would most definitely come back.

    Just back from a sweet little trip to Porto at the end of Feb. Was soo happy to stay in hostel 1 again. I felt really comfortable in the hostel1 vibe with the staff, volunteers and guests. Simon is the receptionist there and couldn't have done a better job. He made sure I was all good , had everything I needed, information, locks, food, water etc. They are genuinely take care of you at this hostel. This is why they stand out from the rest. Woop un beso, see you soon peeps XOXO

    If you want to experience Porto the right ways, meet other travelers and make new friends, this is your place to be. It has the perfect hostel vibe and honestly the most amazing staff. There is literally nothing you can´t do or have here (Walking tours, exploring Porto´s nightlife, joint (free) breakfast + dinner, watching the sunset, cutting your hair @3am, relaxing with good music, ...) I really tried to leave but ended up coming back 3 times in two weeks haha. Would go back in a heartbeat!

    I showed up on Thursday, and watched the staff and guests interact like they have been friends for years. On Sunday, I left this Hostel with the same feeling of closeness only after a quick stint. Whether it is the group dinners, nightly pub crawls, or Cave hangout sessions, Hostel One and its ultra-friendly staff gets you integrated instantly in their family culture. I saw Porto, but more importantly, I realized how booking the right hostel is paramount when experiencing new cities.

    Really nice place with great location. Excellent staff. Luis from Colombia was great. Had a great time and have/will continue to recommend to others. A little mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. Circulation is the problem. Not a big deal but cleanliness is otherwise perfect.

    Great youth hostel. It is a bit of a party hostel, so be aware of that if you decide to book. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect. Bedrooms were a bit cold and the pillows weren’t great but it’s good value for money. I will be back at some point and I would recommend this hostel to friends.

    4th hostel I stayed in Porto. My opinion is mixed, so the location is perfect, the building is old so that can bring some issues, I asked to change room because of a "situation" and they provided me a new room, there is lack of bathrooms (one toilet/shower for two 4 bed dorms). It is a party hostel indeed so there are free dinners and drinking games even though I expected more atmosphere. The staff is friendly and I really enjoyed the free breakfast. I'll give it a second chance
