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

    The private room was very small but nice and comfortable for a few days. The hostel is very clean and the common areas are nice to relax in. We found the location good, easy enough to walk/metro/bus around from though not right in the centre. A great affordable option in Porto. We stayed in a private room so can’t comment on dorms and also weren’t being very social so can’t comment on the atmosphere/vibe really.

    Excellent value for money here. The hostel was clean and the rooms were large. Staff was friendly and morning breakfast was very tasty. My floor only seemed to have 1 mens toilet but had several sinks and showers. Would recommend the Porto Spot Hostel.

    Lovely hostel and well worth the price! Free breakfast was also a very nice touch. Location is convenient although not dead central, we had to walk about 15 minutes to get to the main part of Porto. It was also a little quieter than some hostels I've stayed at, although the common spaces and bar were always clean and enjoyable, as well as cheap!

    Clean and spacious hostel with decent breakfast. Far walk from the main sites but that also meant it was quieter for a better night’s sleep. As a solo female traveler, I had hoped to meet people while there but vibe was lacking. Maybe a group dinner to help guests interact? Otherwise lovely stay that seemed more like a hotel than hostel.

    Double room was confortable, quiet and well decorated. The feeling of the room itself is almost that of a hotel, rather than a hostel, but it is on the 3rd floor with no elevator, so keep that in mind. The atmosphere in the common areas is nice! Breakfast is very basic, as you would expect from a hostel, but fine. Just a few tiny things that could make the room better: towel hooks inside the bathroom, a shelf in the shower for toiletries and larger bath towels.

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.
