    I loved my stay at salties. The staff and guests were all so lovely. We had a wonderful meal out together, organised by salties in the evening. And the surf lesson they provided was awesome. There was free parking for us, so it made it a much cheaper stay than other hostels in the area. And it even came with a pool! The rooms were a really nice size and very clean and comfy. I would defiantly recommend this place and will be staying here again in the future.

    As a solo female traveller, I wanted a safe, relaxed and homely place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. SALTY LODGE provided this in bucketloads. I loved the location, hostel staff were ultra helpful and friendly. There's also a pool and beautiful garden to relax in. I was lucky enough to meet loads of wonderful fellow travellers...Thank you 😊😘

    Wonderful place!! Quite out of the way from the city, but we did not want to leave. So relaxing, so friendly. Really recommend for anyone looking for a retreat away from busy life. They do really great surf lessons and the instructors are so friendly. Loved our stay here.

    Great staff, pool was a nice escape from all the city travels, kinda far from Porto city center but I personally enjoyed the space. Location is great if you’re looking to be near the sea, only a 15 minute Uber ride to Porto city center.

    I had the greatest time at Salty Lodge! As a solo traveller I couldn’t have felt more welcome and relaxed here. Loved the chilled vibe and family feel - easy to make friends and Salty the dog provided great company too. The beauty and serenity of the beach location makes up for the considerable distance from the supermarket + the journey to Porto town. Loved the evening meal out arranged by the staff and the lovely people staying and working at the Lodge! Highly recommend to anyone.

    The location and the grounds were very good! Close to the beach and a beautiful yard to hang out in. The living room was a very good place to meet people. It was easy to make friends. Downside: the place needs some serious maintenance. The showers are terrible. I sat on the toilet upstairs and it felt like it was going to topple over. The beds were small and the rooms didn’t have any ventilation.The rugs, the couches and the breakfast table mats were all visibly dirty. Has potential!
