Hostelworld says

Porto Spot Hostel is very highly rated here on Hostelworld for its friendly, helpful and sociable staff, who host nightly dinner, guest-recommend walking tours and popular pub crawls. One Hostelworld traveller told us 'the hostel is the right size to get to know everybody staying and big enough to party every night', while many guests say they'd stay here again because of the home-like atmosphere. This hostel is located in Old Town, just five minutes' walk from the Capela das Almas and about 15 minutes from Porto Cathedral.

Property Description

Porto Spot Hostel offers great rooms, great fun in an architectural milestone, fully refurbished for your comfort. Porto Spot Hostel is here to surprise you.

Located in the city center, in a 5 min walk from the airport tube, Spot is close to all the beauties of this world heritage city: Clerigos Tower, Old town, Port Wine cellars, night life (at a sound proof distance). Our friendly staff will love to give you all the tourist information, and also those hints you won't find in a guide.

The building was constructed in 1935, and was designed by Armenio Losa, well known Portuguese architect. It is one fine example of Estado Novo, a Portuguese style born out of Art Deco. The refurbishment respected the building's originality, adding the expectable amenities of modern comfort. The rooms are spacious, each one with its unique decoration, with key card access, large beds and free security lockers. We also offer you a bar and a nice patio where you can rest at the end of your day, and where we serve our famous dinners daily.

A fully equipped kitchen is available, were you can cook your meal if you ever get tired of the fantastic food you will find around town (ask our staff for tips). The living room and the media room will also make your delights. The hostel offers free internet points and free wi-fi is fully available inside the house.

We also have a tourist corner where you can find information about the city and its surroundings. Our staff will be more than happy to give you tips on the places you can't miss, and make you a tailor made routing for your stay.

In selected days we organise walking tours, for you to get to know those special places only locals know. We also organise pub crawls, to be sure you have the best night Porto can offer.

From March 1st 2018, the Municipal Tourist Tax will be charged in the city of Porto, which consists of a charge of 2 euros per person per night and up to a maximum of 7 nights. View House Rules


Porto Spot Hostel is known for its helpful, friendly staff and home-away-from-home atmosphere. We host a free breakfast every day and we organise pub crawls and nightly dinners to help you meet other travellers. Our free walking tours will give you the locals' view of Porto before you come back to chill out in our cosy lounge or media room. Pop into our bar to grab a few beers before heading outdoors to our sunny patio to take in the stunning Portuguese Art Deco architecture of our unique building.


We’re right in the city centre, so you'll be within a 20-minute walk of all the best sights including Clérigos Tower, Porto Cathedral and the historic Old Town. There are loads of lively bars and restaurants to try out, too. We’re also just a 5-minute walk from the famous tiled church of Capela das Almas. If you're coming from Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport, hop on a tram or metro to Trindade station and you'll be a 7-minute walk from our door – the journey should take around 40 minutes.

Extras and activities

    Great hostel with a comfortable interior and spaciousness. It had a nice garden, TV room with amazing couches, accessible kitchen, bar and dining area. A local chef even hosted dinners. We stayed in the 8 person room and it was really cozy, no problems with roommates. The beds were very very comfortable, everything was clean and orderly, having a locker was a plus. The hostel was a 10 minute walk away from the center which might be far for some but was perfect for us as to avoid any noise.

    The Pros: Stunningly beautiful and spacious; free breakfast every morning; delicious home-cooked social dinner several nights per week; wonderful and friendly staff (Silva was AWESOME and made me feel at home!); clean and decently spacious bedrooms with working a/c; friendly atmosphere; outdoor patio on premises. The Cons: Awkward and cramped bathrooms without private areas to dress/undress before or after showering; lights in bathrooms/hallways set to automatically turn off every 7-8 seconds.

    Very Good

    That female staff was rude and condescending. Never been treated so horribly at a hostel before. Was put in a 8pp dorm with 6 surfing school kids who were noisy and messy. When I raised it to the staff, she told me it was my fault for not l letting them know earlier. As it got worse I kindly asked the surfing school kids to be quiet, in return I got verbally harassed by them. When I raised it to that staff, she tries to avoid all responsibility & told me that she thinks they were not noisy

    I was a bit disappointed by the staff and the atmosphere because of the lack of flexibility from staff members and too many young people! Otherwise, the hostel is comfortable and clean. But don't forget anything anywhere there. U won't find it at all!

Porto Spot Hostel says

I think that what puts us ahead of the rest is our outstanding facilities. We've got spacious rooms, large and comfortable beds, huge lockers, numerous spotless bathrooms and a fully-equipped kitchen, not to mention several social areas including a cinema room, a bar, balconies and an outdoor area where we serve breakfast and dinners on the sunny days.
The real icing on the cake, though, is our staff. We all really aim to create a home-like atmosphere, with all the information and support you need when travelling.
We're centrally located just two minutes' walk from the unique Bolhao Market and five minutes from Capela das Almas and the beautiful Café Majestic. I feel that no visit to Porto is complete without a visit to the Ribeira-the city's most famous and celebrated postcard.
Most of our guests are aged 18 to 35 but we welcome anybody that's young at heart.
